Conflicted between the extremes of global expansion and personal connection, Brian Rose decides to travel to Costa Rica to participate in multiple ceremonies with the psychedelic plant medicine Ayahuasca. There he reconnects with his vision and purpose but also uncovers childhood trauma that creates an existential crisis in his life. After returning to London with clear visions about the future, he soon realises that things are not what he expected and that real transformation and healing must include pain, challenges and doing the uncomfortable.

“Just like each piece of content put out by brian rose this speaks for itself, and you the viewer make your own assessment. This isn’t biased, this isn’t propaganda designed to influence you to believe in someone else’s agenda. This is a real truthful documentary. Don’t abide by the decisions of others, but rather make your own assessments based on facts.”

 

 

Latest DMT Study Addresses Eerie Prevalence of Hallucinations of ‘Interdimensional Entities’

themindunleashed.com

 

(TMU) Opinion – Last month researchers released a new study on the hallucinogen DMT (or dimethyltryptamine) that provided fresh survey data on the phenomenon of DMT users experiencing and encountering sentient ‘entities’ while tripping. Scientists believe the findings could help to better understand near-death experiences and alien-abduction experiences, as well as develop treatments for mood and behavioral disorders.

The study involved surveying over 2,000 DMT users, the majority of whom claimed to have had positive encounters and even emotional exchanges with beings they felt were advanced and benevolent. Most of the users, upon coming down from the drug, felt the beings were real and not manufactured solely by a hallucination.

The survey produced the following additional data: 99% had an emotional response and of those, 58% believed the entity they encountered also had an emotional response and the feeling was overwhelmingly positive, though some reported instances of fear; 81% of respondents felt the ‘entities’ were real; and two-thirds believed they had received “a message, task, mission, purpose, or insight from the entity encounter experience.”

The study adds more anecdotal corroboration that the DMT psychedelic experience is unique from other drugs.

First discovered as a psychoactive agent by Hungarian psychopharmacologist Stephen Szara in the 1950s, DMT is a psychedelic compound of the tryptamine family. It’s the only psychedelic that is found both in nature and produced naturally by the human body. Because its chemical structure strongly resemble neurotransmitters, particularly serotonin, some refer to it as ‘nature’s serotonin.’

As an endogenous chemical, produced naturally by the human body, it has also been referred to as the “brain’s own psychedelic.”

In the early 1990s, psychiatrist Rick Strassman conducted some of the first human DMT trials and was shocked by a trend he saw. There was a significant prevalence of patients who described their DMT experience some sort of contact or communication with interdimensional entities.

The patients strongly believed they had entered some kind of realm where intelligent “beings”“entities”“aliens”“guides”, or “helpers” were working. Though they appeared differently for different people–sometimes as reptiles, spiders, geometric shapes, stick figures, etc. The common thread for most of the patients was that DMT did not produce a hallucination but rather acted as a kind of biological portal to a different dimension or level of reality that we normally can’t see.

These entities appeared in different ways for different people, but most often as “clowns, reptiles, mantises, bees, spiders, cacti, and stick figures.”

Legendary ethnobotanist and writer Terrence McKenna, who experimented with many different psychedelics, became a major advocate of DMT. Between 1967 to 1994, McKenna smoked DMT 30 to 40 times.

In an interview in The Archaic Revival (1992) Mckenna said:

“It was really the DMT that empowered my commitment to the psychedelic experience. DMT was so much more powerful, so much more alien, raising all kinds of issues about what is reality, what is language, what is the self, what is three-dimensional space and time, all the questions I became involved with over the next twenty years or so.”

He describes the DMT experience as a hyperdimensional reality that can not be described or “downloaded” by human language, “a fundamentally different order than any other experience this side of the yawning grave.”

Depiction of playful DMT “Elves” that some people report seeing.

“What arrests my attention is the fact that this space is inhabited—that the immediate impression as you break into it is there’s a cheer. […] You break into this space and are immediately swarmed by squeaking, self-transforming elf-machines…made of light and grammar and sound that come chirping and squealing and tumbling toward you. And they say, “Hooray! Welcome! You’re here!” And in my case, “You send so many and you come so rarely!”

McKenna, a famously eccentric though revered social philosopher, was fully convinced DMT established a portal between humans and one or more of the following: extraterrestrials, entities in a parallel dimension, dead humans, or humans from the future.

A surprising number of other scientists and medical professionals have agreed with this. Though he did not form a definitive conclusion, Rick Strassman, who later went on to write the popular book DMT: The Spirit Molecule (which inspired the popular eponymous documentary), studied the release of DMT in the brain at the moment of death and during dreams. Ultimately, his research left him confused and overwhelmed.

Dovetailing with his research into Zen Buddhism, he stated:

“I worked through various models’ methods of understanding the DMT volunteers’ experiences, and found them wanting. The Buddhist psychological model didn’t comport with the data – the “more real than real” element of volunteers’ experiences (Buddhism proposes these phenomena are all generated by the mind, rather than “real” observations of external reality); [this] did nothing to suggest a satisfactory evolutionary explanation for the presence of DMT in the human body.”

Pharmacologist and medicinal chemist Dr. David Nichols said he could not discount the possibility that DMT really does grant some kind of extra-dimensional contact:

“There are probably conscious, sentient beings that don’t look like life as we recognize it,” Strassman said in an interview“that maybe exist at some level of existence that we don’t have any awareness of. The universe is 95% dark matter/dark energy; we don’t even understand what gravity is. So the possibility that there are intelligences that exist at some other wavelength or in some other dimension or some other frequency I don’t think is out of the realm of possibility at all.”

Of course not everyone believes these hallucinations are anything more than powerful archetypes.

In 2004, author James Kent, who wrote “Psychedelic Information Theory — Shamanism in the Age of Reason,” wrote that “humans across all cultures have alien and heavenly archetypes embedded in their subconscious, and psychedelic tryptamines can access the archetypes with a high level of success.”

Kent embarked on his own immersion journalism adventure with DMT and tried to extract information from the ‘entities’ that otherwise would not have been available to him. He said he could not.

So is DMT just a particularly powerful hallucination generated when the brain has its visual processing system hijacked by a tryptamine or is Mckenna right when he says it allows the user to access an alternate reality where there’s a “raging universe of active intelligence that is transhuman, hyperdimensional, and extremely alien”?

“DMT Jester” By SleepyE

The new study provides some interesting data that, though anecdotal, suggests that DMT provides the user with an “ontological shock” that may be able to rewire negative psychological patterns.

The researchers write in their paper that “it is possible that, under appropriate supportive set and setting conditions, DMT could show promise as an adjunct to therapy for people with mood and behavioral problems (e.g. depression and addiction).”

Recent research on DMT by Brazilian scientists additionally “suggest[s] that classic psychedelics are powerful inducers of neuroplasticity, a tool of psychobiological transformation that we know very little about.”

Future research, therefore, could help get DMT removed from the list of Schedule 1 drugs, where it currently sits alongside heroin and marijuana.

Clear Footage of Multiple UFOs Recorded and Seen By Dozens of People in Florida (Video)

Below is one video out of thousands floating around on the internet of supposed footage of unidentified flying objects. Keep in mind, many pictures and videos of these crafts have been published and analyzed thoroughly, so there is no shortage of verified footage and pictures. (More information on that can be found below the video.)

This one in particular comes from Dr. Steven Greer, founder of The Disclosure Project and the Center for the Study of Extraterrestrial Intelligence (CSETI). Known to some as the “Father of the Disclosure Movement,” he was instrumental in bringing forth hundreds of military whistleblowers of all ranks, with verified backgrounds, to share their experience and testify on the UFO/extraterrestrial phenomenon.

There is, admittedly, plenty of disinformation being spread within the UFOlogy field, and many people seeking to manipulate the evidence and public opinion, which makes it difficult to assess what information is legitimate and what is not. It unfortunately comes down to doing your own research and using your best judgement.

Greer has had meetings with high level people in the Pentagon, according to himself, Dr. Edgar Mitchell (Apollo 14, who accompanied him on some of these meetings), and many more.

Dr. Greer has been doing these types of outings for quite a while, and he’s not the only one. Last year, a couple of CE members made a trip out to a gathering of researchers, whistleblowers. and enthusiasts, and witnessed something similar.

When you get to that level, and hang around those types of people, your going to draw attention, and anybody who draws massive amounts of attention will be praised, as well as vilified. Within the UFO movement, there are those that disagree and don’t associate with each other, which is very weird and shouldn’t be happening.

Interesting footage.

I think it’s safe to say that UFOs are no longer a fringe topic, as their existence has been verified in the mainstream world, but beyond that, most people are still in the dark. It’s important to keep in mind that a decade ago you were considered a conspiracy theorist for even believing in the existence of UFOs. Things have changed since then, but believing that some of these craft are extraterrestrial in origin is still considered ‘out there.’

Can Major Solar Activity Influence Human Behavior and History?

This is an excerpt from the post above.

What drew my attention is the correlation between major solar activity and major events throughout human history. Look at the graph. Is there any truth to this? Because I believe we are in for some major solar activity soon.

Carl Jung Explains How The Cosmos Affect Human Consciousness

They tell us that we are living in an age of Darkness, also described in The Mahabharata, a time when mental capabilities reach their lowest point and moral virtue is stripped from the Earth. As independent researcher Bibhu Dev Misra writes, when the “World Soul” is full of blackness and corruption, and only a small fraction of virtue remains, it “slowly dwindles to zero at the end of the Kali Yuga. Men turn to wickedness; disease, lethargy, anger, natural calamities, anguish and fear of scarcity dominate. Penance, sacrifices and religious observances fall into disuse. All creatures degenerate. Change passes over all things, without exception.”

IN BRIEF
  • The Facts: Carl Jung’s thoughts on how the cosmos affect human consciousness is quite clear. He spoke about this topic a number of times, and other researchers have expressed and cited this as well.
  • Reflect On: How much do human beings have to discover? Do our beliefs get in the way of discovery?

Astrology is an ancient art and science dating back thousands of years. It appears in many cultures, but as with most ancient wisdom, much of it was and has been concealed and forbidden from public viewing. Secret societies, both whose hearts are grounded in the goodwill for all of humanity, and those driven by greed and personal gain, have also used this type of ancient knowledge. From Atlantis to ancient Sumer, Vedic astrology to ancient Greece, Rome, and Egypt, many great minds throughout the ages have practiced astrology, and for good reason. Despite its many skeptics, astrology has much to offer.

It’s also important to mention here that many of the ‘founding fathers’ of modern science, especially in the fields of mathematics and physics/quantum physics, were all spiritual mystics.

“The day science begins to study non-physical phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade than in all the previous centuries of its existence.”- Nikola Tesla

A new age, astrologically speaking, for man began at the dawn of Christianity. Prior to this, we had the secret societies, concepts like the Philosopher’s Stone, and other ‘magical’ concepts, including the use of magic and sorcery. With the advent of Christianity, the concept of God took their place, yet more recently, concepts that were used and practiced prior to the beginning of modern-day religion have been emerging once more, which is interesting because we are at the end of an age, and transitioning into a new one. There is a discrepancy among experts where exactly we are, but most seem to agree that we are in a very important transition period.

In Western astrology, we are transitioning from the Age of Pisces to the Age of Aquarius. In ancient Vedic astrology, we are at the beginning of the end of a 300 cycle (currently living in the transition period at the end of the Kaliyuga Age).

The Vedic doctrine also tells us what Western astrology philosophies do, and correlates with the cycles described by ancient Native American wisdom as well.

They tell us that we are living in an age of Darkness, also described in The Mahabharata, a time when mental capabilities reach their lowest point and moral virtue is stripped from the Earth. As independent researcher Bibhu Dev Misrawrites, when the “World Soul” is full of blackness and corruption, and only a small fraction of virtue remains, it “slowly dwindles to zero at the end of the Kali Yuga. Men turn to wickedness; disease, lethargy, anger, natural calamities, anguish, and fear of scarcity dominate. Penance, sacrifices, and religious observances fall into disuse. All creatures degenerate. Change passes over all things, without exception.” 

These descriptions accurately reflect our society’s progression. As we’ve moved through modern history, this past age — which has lasted approximately 2,100 years — is coming to an end, a conclusion marked by a time when global tensions have never been so high. During this age, humanity has indeed experienced the most darkness, and it seems that the more ancient a civilization, the more spiritually (and technologically) advanced they might have been — also interesting because after this age ends, we will be cycling back to the beginning, an age that hasn’t been seen since the time of great knowledge and understanding of the spiritual sciences, mysticism, consciousness, and non-materialism in general.

This all seems to be part of the massive shift in the collective consciousness that is going on today.

Carl Jung’s Explanation (From The Video Below)

Jung writes:

“As we know from Ancient Egyptian History, these events are symptoms of psychic changes that always appear at the end of one platonic month, and at the beginning of another. They are, it seems, changes in the constellation of psychic dominance, of the archetypes or gods, as they used to be called, which bring about or accompany long-lasting transformations of the collective psyche.  This transformation started within the historical tradition and left traces behind it. First, in the transition from the age of Torus to that of Aries, and then from Aries to Pisces, whose beginning coincides with the rise of Christianity (mentioned above).  We are now nearing the great change, which may be expected, when the spring point, enters Aquarius.” 

Interest quote above, it’s taken from his book, Flying Saucers: A Modern Myth of Things Seen in the SkiesIt’s hard to find a non translated version that was written by Jung in 1958, that’s why the recording below, from manly P. Hall, who had a relationship with Jung, as being recognized as two of the greatest minds of their time – they were also into each others work, is so important.

Hall has been recognized as one of the world’s leading scholars in the fields of religion, mythology, mysticism, and the occult. Many great minds have been attracted to his work, including the late Carl Jung, who, when writing his Psychology and Alchemy, borrowed material from Hall’s private collection.

One of his most recognized books is a great resource of information,The Secret Teachings of All Ages: An Encyclopedic Outline of Masonic, Hermetic, Qabbalistic and Rosicrucian Symbolical Philosophy. 

Jung, contrary to popular belief, was a heavy researcher into the topic of UFOs, during the time he published his book he also accused the Air Force for covering up information about the subject.

Hall explains Jung’s quote above:

“Jung is telling us, that the Platonic year is a problem in timing, and that what we call the processional motion of the equinoxes, results in the vernal equinox changing about every 2100 years, and that these changes correspond to the months of the great platonic year, which consists of something over 25,000 years. He is telling us therefore that these changes arising in nature, in cosmos, in space, are due to certain gradual transformations of archetypes, and that these archetypes mean, that in nature this clock is active, and that this clock is continuously moving, passing from one cyclic division to another, he could undoubtedly gather, a powerful body of information to prove that at each of these vital periods, these periods in which the general dominant of the world changes, there has been a mark, an important social psychological change in the life of individuals.”

He (Hall) then goes on to say:

“The life of the individual is in relationship to the life of the collective, that this phenomenon, of the flying saucers, should arise as the vernal equinox moves toward the Aquarian point, and that this consequently implies, as it did to the Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans, and also to many Asiatic peoples, a major motion of world consciousness, world pressure, and that this motion is from a water sign to an air sign…And that therefore, the atmospheric mystery, the mystery of air, and that which is concealed within air, must become increasingly psychologically dominant for a period of more than 2000 years to come.”

Physicist: Universe May Be a “Strange Loop” of Self-Simulating Consciousness

JAKE ANDERSON

(TMU) — When it comes to cosmology, astronomy, and physics, there is no shortage of off-the-wall arguments and hypotheses. While new discoveries from the early moments of the Big Bang and quantum and particle physics continue to amaze us and fill in the gaps of our mysterious universe, there remains a stunning number of questions we still can’t answer.

The most fundamental of these questions revolve around “why anything” and “why consciousness.” Why is there anything here at all? What primal state of existence could have possibly birthed all that matter, energy, and time, all that everything? And how did consciousness arise—is it some fundamental proto-state of the universe itself, or an emergent phenomenon that is purely neurochemical and material in nature?

A new physics hypothesis attempts to answer both questions at the same time with a new spin on panpsychism that weds aspects of Nick Bostrom’s Simulation Argument with something called “timeless emergentism.” The hypothesis, outlined in a new paper by a team of researchers at the Quantum Gravity Research institute, is called the “panpsychic self-simulation model,” and while the authors certainly aren’t earning any points for intellectual modesty, their idea may just be capable of peacefully mapping some of the universe’s most wild conundrums.

The first pieces of this puzzle you may have already heard of: the Simulation Argument is a pop-culture staple now, most famously popularized when Elon Musk claimed it’s far more likely that we are living in a simulation created by an advanced intelligence. Then there is the age-old belief in panpsychism, which posits that the entire universe is a type of panconscious entity and that even ordinary matter is imbued with proto-consciousness.

The new argument gets rid of the middleman and suggests that panconsciousness itself is generating the simulations, not advanced aliens, and that the universe is one giant “mental self-simulation.”

The paper, titled “The Self-Simulation Hypothesis Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics,” says the physical universe is a “strange loop” that can self-generate new sub-realities in an almost infinite hierarchy of tiers in-laid with simulated realities of conscious experience, kind of like a psychic Matryoshka doll.

You’re still left with the mystery of the physical origins of this self-generating consciousness, to which the researchers reply that the answer is actually non-material. The paper argues that universal consciousness “self-actualizes” using a natural algorithm called “the principle of efficient language.”

In other words, the universe is creating itself through thought, willing itself into existence on a perpetual loop that efficiently uses all mathematics and fundamental particles at its disposal.

The universe, they say, was always here (timeless emergentism) and is like one grand thought that creates mini thoughts, called “code-steps or actions”, again like a Matryoshka doll.

Quantum Gravity physicist David Chester broke down some recent findings they feel bolster the argument: “While many scientists presume materialism to be true, we believe that quantum mechanics may provide hints that our reality is a mental construct. Recent advances in quantum gravity, such as seeing spacetime emergent via a hologram, also is a hint that spacetime is not fundamental. This is also compatible with ancient Hermetic and Indian philosophy. In a sense, the mental construct of reality creates spacetime to efficiently understand itself by creating a network of subconscious entities that can interact and explore the totality of possibilities.”

The paper also suggests that the purpose of this single looping, self-generating consciousness is to explore and develop meaning through information. They also discuss future prospects, such as studying lucid dreams to better understand simulations and the idea of developing consciousness that does not require matter at all.
