Type of Spiritual Experience
And ego loss
A description of the experience
TiKHAL – the continuation – Dr Alexander and Ann Shulgin
With 25 mg of 5-MeO-DMT smoked
I placed 25mg of 5-methoxy-DMT in a stainless steel one quarter teaspoon and vaporised it over a cigarette lighter collecting the smoke in an upside down funnel. All smoke was inhaled; the taste was mild – none of the plastic taste of DMT. About 10 seconds or so after inhaling the last of the smoke, it began with a fast-rising sense of excitement and winder, with an undertone of ‘Now you’ve done it’ but dominated by a sense of ‘WOW This Is IT!’
There was a tremendous sense of speed and acceleration. In perhaps 10 more seconds these feelings built to an intensity I had never experienced before. The entire universe imploded through my consciousness.
It’s as if the mind is capable of experiencing a very large number of objects, situations and feelings, but normally only perceives them one at a time. I felt that my mind was perceiving them all at once. There was no distance, no possibility of examining the experience. This was simply the most intense experience possible; a singularity, a white-out.
I have little memory of the state itself. I have no memory for example, of whether my eyes were open or closed. After some seconds or minutes, it started to fade and came to resemble a merely intense psychedelic state.
Here I had the feeling, a visualisation of being part of the universe of beings, all active in our daily, interwoven tasks, still moving at an incredible rate, and with a longing for a single group/organism awareness and transcendence. In a few more minutes it faded to an alert +one state with an additional sense of awe and wonder, relief and a strong feeling of gratitude toward the universe in general, for the experience
