What do these famous experiences caused by for example DMT learn us about
the 'hardwiring' in our brains? DMT causes at certain doses universal
psychological effects like contact with elve-like creatures, communicating
through mind. It's funny that DMT is readiliy available in our brain,
although in small amounts, as it's a body-containing neurotransmittor,
closely related to serotonin, causing these ' biologically predestined'
states of awareness to exist.
What does this tell us about the evolutionary advantage or disadvantage of a
higher concentration of DMT in ones nervous system. More questions come up.
