“A Methodology for Studying Various Interpretations of the N,N-dimethyltryptamine-Induced Alternate Reality”.
Journal of Scientific Exploration. 2007;21(1):67-84.
N,N-dimethyltryptamine, or DMT, is an endogenous psychoactive chemical that has been
shown through repeated human subject experimentation to provide the subject with a perception of an 'alternate reality'. When administered a sufficient DMT dose, subjects have reported the presence of intelligent beings that do not appear to be the projections of their subconscious in the Freudian sense. Furthermore, and of particular interest to this article, many subjects believe that the percieved alternate reality is persistent in that it exists irrespective of their subjective momentary perception. Past research into the DMT-induced alternate reality comes solely from subject testimonies and to date, no analysis has been conducted to understand the objective aspects of these extraordinary subjective claims. This article provides a methodology for studying the nature of the DMT-induced alternate reality by means of various simple information theory experiments. These experiments can be used to test which of the presented interpretations of the DMT-induced alternate reality appears most plausible.
