@Fluffywolf (what do I need to write to get that corect?)
Yeah sure it is highly possible that that happens, The Matrix.
"You take the blue pill – the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill – you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes." -Morpheus
It's so hard to say excactly what happens, when your in that state ordinary life seems like a dream and that is reality, its timeless and so much more real then you can ever imagine up. Doing it several times gives it a feeling of 'coming home from a long trip' and I mean the tripping experience not the coming down. You feel like "yeah I'm back home Baby!".
However is it real? is this real? its like Morpheus says "What is real? is it what you can see taste and feel, then reality is just electrical impulses interpreted by the brain"
I don't know my basic pragmatic conclusion is basically that of a video game. I find myself in different Matrixes with diffrent rules and laws, some can be broken and some you can get around. During the time I spend in this matrix I have certain rules that I follow and I play the game until it ends.
Hopefully after I'm done with this game there will be another, now I have some anecdotal evidence that it might be other games waiting for me but I cant be sure. This way however im more prepared for a shift in consciousness. I'm more prepared to deal with psychadelic experiences cause, its just a game!
Many people get scared shitless of the intensity and I do aswell but I remind myself "its just a game, dont panic, you have been here before you know what to do". Offcource sometimes you encounter new scenarios but there mostly alike but like Aldous Huxley wrote, "dont panic".
As far as having no knowledge I don't really think that matters when it comes to DMT, apart from most psychedelics its not Setting sensitive, meaning that what your conscious state is and what is around you at the moment wont influence it as much as say acid or psilocybin.
Knowing that Dr Straussman said to every subject that they should prepare to die cause its that an intense experience.
That where some random Ne thoughts let get to the Ti of your post :P
Sure theres a lot of similarities that could attribute these people to actually visiting the same place, that they are awakening into the matrix thru the red pill. However it could simply be the neuroplastic setup of the human brain that causes nerons to fire in a specific way which makes thes experiences very similar. It is really hard to say which one is happening and to prove any metaphysical phenomen i dont know where one would start. You could measure the brain activity and show that "neurons fire in X way and that gives Y experience" even so it dosent disprove that its part of a program running.
I always say that what happens to the subject is real to them. What one experiences on a psychedelic drug is as real as what happens know, that experience becomes part of who they are even if it is not observable from an objective standpoint.
I remember at least one account from Dr Straussmans experiment in which an older lady said it was not at all what shee expected to see, she thaught there would be fairys and elves, witch sounds more of psilocybin alike to me. And she did see aliens. But yeah if you could get a test group and make sure they havent read these accounts it would count for something but still its at best circumstantial evidence. As a final note most people have never heard about DMT so i think there are little if any preconception about it.
