A description of the experience
The Power and The Glory - Harmaline, 5-MeO-DMT & DMT - by Netrunner
This extract is from is a rather long account of two extremely potent experiences with two forms of DMT.
The next evening, I …. smoked some crystalline nn-DMT for the first time. I'd heard 5-MeO DMT referred to as the Power and nn-DMT as the Glory. That is exactly how my experiences fit with these two. ….. There was a group of 6 of us plus the supplier with the pipe. We were in one of our rooms, on the beds. I was the second to last to try it; all of the others had experiences lasting 10-15 minutes max. I inhaled three or four strong puffs, laid back, and fell through the bed. It came on very fast, very strong, and extremely visual, the most visual of anything I've done, eyes open or shut, and completely unlike 5-MeO which was barely visual, and strangely, only with open eyes…... Direction, orientation, gravity, etc became meaningless in this completely abstract work of visual art.
I found myself lying down in a room, surrounded by alien 'presences' standing all around me in my peripheral vision. The presences appeared to me as alternating black and white outlines and I could only see their heads peering down at me. They were featureless except for color and shape; a black head shape, next to a white head shape, next to a black head shape, 6-10 of them, very interested in me but trying to stay out of my field of vision. In retrospect I felt like I was lying on hospital bed as a patient of these presences.
Straight in front of me or above me in the distance was a rectangular box, slowly approaching. It was my reaction to the box the presences were most interested in. As I studied the box I started to make out details. I was looking into the open side of the box and along the top edge were about a dozen or more dancing snakes, weaving rhythmically back and forth, like sea grass rippling under the sea, and pulsing in rainbow psychedelic colours, mostly reds. It was absolutely hypnotic to watch as they slowly approached with the open box below them…………
Slowly, my field of view turned …..to the snakes, approaching ever closer, until I realized they weren't just snakes but sharp scythes, lashing out at me, cutting at my chest, my heart, dancing ever so rhythmically, gently but necessarily, telling me to let go, open my heart, let go, let myself feel. I opened my eyes. The room was nothing but paisley patterns and paisley people. My body was somewhat tense. I closed my eyes again. The snakes were gone, I couldn't see the presences, but I knew they were still there, watching me, protecting me.
In the distance a different presence began to approach: a large red demon-like creature with a knobbly bulbous head and bulging arms and fierce but non-hostile eyes. His right arm and hand was out-stretched, reaching for my head. He gently reached through my flesh, my skull, and gently palmed my mind, like a blanket wrapped around my brain. Then he faded into dozens of eyes, peering, turning, twisting, watching, which in part slowly faded into darkness.
The feeling of the demon's palm and the presence of the protective entities didn't fade--they were meant to stay with me and they have, even now.
