I have a very serious question for my fellow human beings.
Who on planet Earth can explain to me why the neurotransmitter serotonin (5-hydroxy tryptamine) is legal and the neurotransmitter DMT (N,N-Dimethyl tryptamine) is illegal and a Schedule I drug making every person on US soil guilty of possession and manufacture every single moment of their lives?
Seriously what is the problem? Is this hydroxy (O=H) privilege? Do we not like the extra methoxy (CH3) groups?
Is it a structure-activity relationship issue? Listen DMT it’s not that we don’t like your structure because we do we share the a lot of the same structure, it’s just we don’t like your activity, you’re so you know unpredictable and we really like predictability here at Serotonin Inc.
Well there you have it folks, it is fine allowing you to use your own 5-hydroxy tryptamine to alter your consciousness, but if try to you consume N,N-Dimethyl tryptamine you are breaking the law and the state has to stop you for your own protection because unpredictable things might happen to you and you might begin to question your culture and then what happens to law and order at that point.
I mean how can we keep this mass cultural hallucination going if too many people start opting out? The hallucination is not in the plants, it’s in the electromagnetic realities we have encapsulated ourselves in. Those are the real drugs your parents should have warned you about.
I know I warned my four kids. I taught them to get high on their own supply of neurotransmitters. We would go out for hours and bounce and play games on the trampoline in our back yard and get what now is correctly called an endocannabinoid high (rather than endorphin high). Then I told them that if they ever chose to take some plant or other substance that they would not be doing so to self-medicate a deficiency but rather to alter their consciousness in a desired way.
I can thank Finn McKenna for that last one when I met him in Palenque at Botanical Preservation Corps in 1996. He said that he believed all drug use was some form of self-medication. I’ve come to accept that. Then I’ve come to understand that everything is medicine. Then it becomes about choosing the best medicine for the dis ease. For that I will let nature be my guide.
