DMT researcher in person tonight at the Guild
In the issue that begins hitting stands today, I interview Dr. Rick Strassman, who dosed volunteers with DMT, a powerful psychedelic, at UNM in the early '90s.
Tonight, there will be two showings (6 p.m. and 8 p.m.) of a documentary called The Spirit Molecule about his five-year study. Strassman will be on hand at the Guild Cinema to talk about his work and answer questions after each screening.
The article will be available online at alibi.com this evening. But until then, here's a preview:
What would another round of experiments look like today?
I don't know about any more DMT studies. I just gave so much DMT. ..
I think it would be interesting to give DMT to scientists who are doing studies with parallel universes and string theory and dark matter and things like that. I do speculate at the end of the book that that could be the location of this other state, this freestanding, apparently independent state. I think it would be interesting to get their opinion on what this seems like to them based on all of their thinking and their computer models.
