15th of September, 1998 E.V.

Ok, this is what truly happened, this was my first time...

I was in a group of 6 people, inside at nighttime. The only light source was a candle in

the centre of the room, and we were all around it. Anthony just had a huge dose, he

did prana breathing with his dose and I was shaking with excitement...

a full body shake that I could not control. Now it was my turn.

'Gastro' held the glass bong with the glass pipe attached, he

lit it carefully making sure not to fully vaporise it, he said.


I inhaled as much as I could stand; it

was instantly a shock, very harsh and

strangely tasty, very concentrated,

smelt exactly like a certain type of

concentrated Chinese Jasmine tea.

As I tookin my second inhalation, I

witnessed a very strange visual effect.

The glass bong pipe and my hands rushed

away into the distance and the background

view of the floor came straight for me.

The movie 'Contact' does the same effect

brilliantly when Jodie Foster is in the sphere

during her dimension jump. It got to the point

where I knew I wouldn't be able to hold the

bong-pipe. 'Gastro' took it off me and I sat back,

looking around the room. I lookedstraight at the

candle, which was separating before my eyes,two

images of the candle was on either side of it, two

different colours, the light I was perceiving in my

visual field was separating. As I looked around the room

a bit more, I saw the same effect happen everywhere, there

was three images of everything, all slightly overlaying each

other and transparent. I looked at 'Gastro' in astonishment

and remember smiling, I could see him clearly, but also could perceive

moving energy segments of brilliant colour all over his skin and bone

structure of his face. I managed to push myself back in a last effort and

lay back. About 15 seconds had passed since my second toke.

I know that I was having an intense revelation, one that I can not talk about

here, but one I remember every time I use DMT, the revelation was one of Ultimate

Realness, that is all I can say. The visuals I definitely recall with utmost clarity,

I feel gifted this way.

I closed my eyes and focused immediately into the distance, it was very clear,

crystalline and symmetric yet totally organic. Out of the terrifyingly complex

colours and patterns emerged and formed an entity that sneered at me, grinning

wildly with two piercing eyes, it was free floating and fractalising. Swirling arms

and appendages formed out of its now more solid ethereal body of light.

I sensed or imagined that smaller invisible beings were slicing me up across the chest and stomach
with laser sharp instruments, it was painful, but somewhat acceptable and bearable. In retrospect, this
was perhaps the DMT vapour touching my lung pathways. The Entity formed greater within my closed
eye visual perception and was growing more menacing, I felt it trying to attach it self to me, or get inside me somehow. I did what I felt had
to do. I mentally said and intended the thought 'COME ON THEN!'
and threatened back
at it what it was doing to me. With this, it started to dissipate, in
the reverse way that it had formed. As it subsided away back into the
colourful patterns and geometrics I pleaded with it to come back, but
it had gone.

The first thing I communicated to the group was 'Carry on'
then I said,


It was a truly life changing event, from this moment on, I realised that all shaman cultures and religions were based upon direct personal experiences and that all of them had truth behind them.

If you want to see what the DMT entity looked like, go to the Visionary arts section of this site and look under my name.
