Researching DMT

Date: 10-12-14
Host: Richard Syrett
Guests: Richard Whittle, Dr. Rick Strassman

Host Richard Syrett welcomed psychiatrist Dr. Rick Strassman, who talked about
his research with psychedelic compound DMT and how naturally occurring DMT may
produce prophecy-like states of consciousness and thus represent a bridge
between biology and religious experience. After first being discovered in
psychedelic plants in the late 1940's, he said, researchers learned that DMT
could also be found in the bodily fluids of humans. While the purpose of DMT in
the human body remains a mystery, Strassman noted that it "appears to be
actively transported into the brain using the brain's energy" which is an
attribute only exhibited by compounds that are required for normal brain
functioning, suggesting that DMT plays a critical, albeit unknown, role in the
human body.

Although DMT was a "pretty obscure drug compared to LSD" in the early years of
psychedelic research, Strassman observed that this changed once researchers
realized that the compound was created naturally within the human body. That
discovery, he said, led to numerous studies into the possible role of DMT in
psychosis and schizophrenia. However, after the drugs "escaped from the
laboratory" and people began using them for recreational purposes, the
government passed the Controlled Substances Act of 1970, which put an end to
studies on the effect of DMT in humans. This moratorium lasted until 1990, when
Strassman was allowed to perform the first new research on the mysterious
compound's influence on the human mind and body.

Regarding the potential connection between DMT and religious experiences,
Strassman recalled how, while reading the Bible, he noticed that the
descriptions of heavenly encounters by "prophetic figures" seemed remarkably
similar to the experiences recounted by the volunteers in his study of the drug.
As such, he theorized that elevated levels of DMT in the human brain may be the
cause of the Biblical events which depict fantastic visions, sounds, and
encounters with ethereal entities. Since the stimulus for elevated DMT levels
remains a mystery, Strassman proposed a concept called theoneurology, where
divine forces are "communicating to humans using the brain" via the psychedelic
Predator Drone

In the first hour, Richard Whittle, Verville Fellow at the National Air and
Space Museum in Washington, D.C, discussed the evolution of the Predator drone.
He explained that rudimentary unmanned aerial vehicles were actually first
developed during World War I, but the technology did not truly take hold until
advancements in design allowed for drones to remain in the air for long periods
of time. According to Whittle, the decision to arm the Predator drone arose
after the CIA managed to locate Osama Bin Laden in Afghanistan in 2000 and
sought to eliminate the terrorist mastermind. In the ensuing years, he marveled,
the U.S. military has gone from having 82 drones in 2001 to more than 10,000
craft of varying sizes and purposes.

After a record-breaking 22 months in space, the Air Force's clandestine craft
known as 'X-37B' will be returning to Earth this week. The purpose behind the
vehicle's marathon stay in space remains highly classified, spawning suspicions
that it was being used for nefarious missions such as testing advanced weaponry
or spying on unfriendly nations. More on the story at
