Interesting article: "Secret Commonwealth".
Are you familiar with DMT (N,N-diemethyltryptamine)?
This Chemical which mainly exists in our spinal fluid and is greatly produced
during the dream state. As of its function, we do not know yet exactly.
Anyway, DMT is an extremely short acting hallucinogen. Acting between 2-5
minutes with entire after effect gone in 15 minutes.
What is so fascinating is there is a common hallucination under DMT: "ELVES".
Many users have reported (from different parts of the world and cultures) of
encountering these little people under DMT. The user is thrown into this
hyperspace where the elves live. The elves apparently are extremely
intelligent and have great knowledge of the Universe and its workings.
You can search the net for Elves and DMT terms and come up with a lot of
Another fascinating point was when few months ago I was on an expedition
in Jungles of Peru (I know how this sentence sounded but its true).
I met a local shaman in the Jungle and asked him how he or his ancestors have
collected the knowledge of the plants and their workings. The Shaman told me
when they take their sacred drink "Ayahausca" (pronounced ayawasca") the
little spirits appears to them to teach them what they need to know.
Interesting enough the Ayahausca contains DMT as its main ingredients.

DMT, its MAO inhibitor and the Origin of Flying Carpets

I am sure you are familiar with Physicist: Fred Alan Wolf, author of such
books as Parallel Universes and Taking the Quantum Leap. I wonder if you have
ever read a book by him titled: The Eagles Quest: A Physicist Finds Scientific
Truth at the Heart of the Shamanic World?
In this book, Wolf recounts his experiences with Ayahuasca (the DMT containing
drink). After the experience he has under, he begins a long journey in the
spiritual quest with a scientific background. His encounters with Druid
Shamans, Amazonian Shamans, etc.. is truly fascinating.
Especially the parts that related to the vibration quality of Shamanic work
(Druids in particular).
I just typed a paragraph from the Chapter Shamanic Healing of the book:
"I drank the mixture quickly and found it much more bitter than any in my
previous three experiences. The cup contained probably less than four ounces.
....... I sat down and waited. After everyone had drunk, Don Solon (the
Shaman) stretched and began to chant the Icaro (the scared song) very softly
and slowly. I could hardly hear him, at first. Then I noticed the vibration.
The whole room, a good thirty by forty feet in area, resting on block
cylinders of wood to keep the hut off the jungle ground, was shaking. I
wondered whether we were experiencing an earthquake...... Somehow the song of
Don Solon was connected with the vibration. I began to suspect that Don Solon
was perpetrator of this dance of the room. I watched him as carefully as I
could. There was a kerosene lamp glowing, and I could see his whole body
seated in the chair, nothing was moving. I looked over to Jorge. He was decked
out in a hammock. No one else was moving.
I turned to Ted. "What is this vibration?"
Ted said, "He is causing it"
Later I began to suspect that somehow Don Solon had discovered a resonance
condition and that even small nearly undetectable body movements, if at the
right frequency would set the room dancing."
One last thing on this DMT. DMT is orally inactive and requires an MAO
inhibitor to work.
Basically Ayahuasca is a mixture of DMT and naturally occurring MAO inhibitor.
The statistic of how the Shamans in Jungle have found the exact plant
combination (which are inactive without each other orally) among millions of
jungle plants is astonishing.
Now the fascinating part is, thousands of miles away, Sufis in Iran also have
a similar drink. Again a local plant containing DMT is mixed with a plant
containing MAO inhibitor.
The Sufis would drink the potion and then would sit on a Persian carpet with
the pattern woven specially to their own specifications (mandalas).
They would then concentrate on the patterns of the carpets (these patterns are
said to be gateways to the parallel worlds). After a while the Sufi's mind
world enter other worlds.
Hence the legend of the flying carpets. I have no idea how two so remote
cultures can possibly come up with a combination such as this on their own.
Take care - Gene
