5-MeO-DMT, about a match-head's worth of degraded product in the form of reddish, hygroscopic material, smoked in a glass bulb pipe. Writer is relatively inexperienced with the material. Seated, in a living room with psychedelic decorations, with two very dear friends. At around T+6:00 of a baseline dose of 2.5 mg of DOC, and T+0:45 of a small line of racemic ketamine, insufflated. A recording of the choir of St. John's Church, Elora, Ontario, performing Henry Lawes' 1648 setting of Psalm VIII is playing in the background. The writer considers this the most beautiful of all of his psychedelic experiences.

Near instantly, I am at a plus four. It is utterly ineffable. But there is no visual involvement, none of the more superficial indicia of the psychedelic state. Mentally there is no confusion. There is no breakdown of the mechanism of perception. There is utter clarity. There is a sense of eternity. This is not quite ego loss. The subject-object boundary is intact. The perceiver is separate from that which is perceived. But there is something here that is essential to all psychedelic drugs, something that satisfies some basic human longing for the sublime and the profound. Remarkably, while that longing is totally satisfied, there is nothing else ... because, at that moment, there is nothing else. The experience is all-encompassing, boundary-shattering. It feels eternal, yet I am conscious that it is fleeting. I am definitely in this moment, but there is none other. Everything is still. Then there is some enhancement of color, some slight oscillations of geometric patterns already extant. Then there is a return to linear time. I feel holy. And in ten minutes or so I am gently to the baseline.
