After you die, there is still a good 5-10 minutes of brain activity left after the rest of the organs have shut down, as it can go a few minutes without oxygen. A theory that I have come across: that after we are declared physically dead, our mind is still very alive and conscious in a blissful, time-dilated state, with a type of "dreamtime" or spiritual experience attached. DMT is one of the most powerful, naturally occurring hallucinogens known to us.

I was thinking about that TV show called I Survived Beyond and Back which is about people who have near death experiences but live, and share their stories. They see things too, like God and other crazy things. Maybe it's just the DMT that's being released that makes them see that stuff. Maybe none of what they see is real, but they believe it is true because they saw it. It's a pretty interesting show. Anyway, I think that when people have those experiences, their body is in the process of shutting down and DMT is starting to be released. Which makes them hallucinate and I think when they see things, it is because of the DMT. But for some reason they come back to life and then the DMT stops being released.

"The Light" described after so many NDEs is common with DMT users (supplemented) as well as those who have had actual near death experiences, so there is definitely some correlation with not only that, but other experiences. Scientist still barely understand the purpose of DMT, although it is found in most living things on this earth.

I hope this makes sense and is understandable.

I do think this is totally realistic since DMT is one of the craziest drugs known to man and your brain is flooded with it when you die. Because of this I'm never gonna try DMT because I don't want to have any tolerance so I can trip balls for eternity after I die. This makes me feel a lot better about death

Mon, 04/15/2013 - 11:07pm

Imagine if that's literally what happens, like you trip your fucking balls off for an eternity hahahahahaha.

Mon, 07/15/2013 - 2:04pm

you cant build a tolerance to dmt, u can get used to it, but u wont need more to achieve the effects like with weed or alcohol

So what if you die in a way where your brain is an explosion or shot to the head or something? If your brain is damaged or destroyed when you die and cant produce DMT, will you miss out on your eternal DMT trip?

P.S. I have done DMT a few times and thought of many theories like posted and similar, but this has always been a question iv had.

Thu, 07/18/2013 - 12:29am

yeah if you destroy it, like a gunshot or something, your brain probably wont be able to comprehend whats happening because of the lack of brains lol

Ive done DMT a few times too and I think that DMT is our gateway to the after life. I kind of believe that we were created by the Annunaki and that we will be going back to our creators planet if we deserve it. I also seen a theory that we get to choose if we want to reincarnate or go into the higher consciousness.

I think it's funny that she says "Maybe it's just the DMT that's being released that makes them see that stuff. Maybe none of what they see is real, but they believe it is true because they saw it." Doesn't that apply to our current reality? We see stuff, we believe it is true because we see it. Seeing is believing. Fortunately, I think that dying/DMT, what you see, is far more real than what we experience. Look at time, time shouldn't exist. It is a flaw in our system, it keeps us in order, but makes us follow a day by day schedule. We aren't suppose to live in a time universe. When you die and you enter that timeless void, that will be real.

When you illegally ingest DMT you trip out on less than what is naturally released in your Deep REM sleep every night. I have said that I will only ever smoke weed. I lied. I will try DMT. my cousin smoked it once and says he cant describe what he saw but he knows what it means and he cant explain it. Joe Rogan on DMT . It is a great video. give it a watch if this drug interests you.

Wed, 07/10/2013 - 3:48am

have any of you ever done DMT? I have, and I believe that when our dmt is released into our brains that it is strong enough to send our consciousness to another planet or realm. I also read that if you know youre going to die, you can meditate and reincarnate yourself to live on earth again. there is so much that our minds are capable of, we just have to harness our conscious effectively.

let me know if you want to read my first experience

Fri, 07/19/2013 - 4:13pm

Sure! Yeah, I would love to try DMT. It fascinates me.

When i was surfing one time, i had a near death experience where i was held under water for what my friends say was about 3 min. (3 min doesnt sound long but imagine being out of breath from paddling your ass of, and breathing quickly while riding then wave, and not being able to take a deep breath before you go under) While i was under i was PANICKING THE FUCK OUT just trying to reach the surface with all my might, and then it hit me. The most peaceful, calmness i have ever experienced. then like a snap i popped up gasping for air like a fish out of water. Alot of surfers especially the big wave surfers have felt that and have experienced Oxygen deprivation. Thats what i feel like Death and DMT is, its like your body handling all the stress and pain you might be in by releasing chemicals to deal with the stress and pain.

that's exactly what it is. This is because we are all just a test.

Sat, 07/13/2013 - 5:44am

I've tried DMT before. It was an amazing experience.

I agree with you though and I've said this myself, quite often.
It just makes sense. :)

Sat, 07/13/2013 - 12:29pm

I think the chemical reaction at death is to give you some solace in what could really be a baaad experience. Nature makes it so that when you die, it's not so bad. Or something like that... I think this experience is completely objective though... When my grandma died, I knew she thought of heaven, and she made her own heaven with that last trip of dmt; in her mind. I'm a spiritual person, but i don't think i'de envision heaven or a hell, i would think about the simplicities in life that made me happy' things that were genuine. I wouldn't go to heaven, because i don't believe in god. Not that he's not accepting me, moreso, he wouldn't exist in my mind, and I would look to different comfort in my dying thoughts. I think heaven and hell can be real as anything, in the persons mind, with that last dmt trip. It only makes sense that your brain is the last to die, since naturally you'd try to preserve yourself to your last bit of functionality... unless you have an instant death. imagine how unsatisfied the brain would be if it didn't get that last trip

xeoneon Says:

So if someone is beheaded, do you think they still get to enjoy that dmt trip?

Sat, 02/15/2014 - 1:51am

yes exactly. But who knows, they say your brain lives for just a bit. Maybe all you feel is the feeling of the thought. Enough for you to feel the angst of your circumstantial death

Sat, 07/13/2013 - 2:03pm

I've thought about this for awhile that's why I made a highdea called avoid death by explosion because you know what if you were like instantly completely incinerated. Your brain wouldn't even get the dmt. So boom no afterlife

Thu, 07/18/2013 - 9:06am

yup. Excpet i've thought about getting shot right through the brainstem or something.

Sat, 07/13/2013 - 3:06pm

I believe psychedelics in general allow our minds to tune in to "higher frequencies", as a sort of radio so to speak. DMT is especially profound because it is endogenous. I feel that everything you need is within, if you catch my drift. I've done DMT and while it was terrifyingly intense, it changed my outlook on life greatly.

Sat, 07/13/2013 - 5:51pm

Holy shit you just blew my mind... #mindfuck

Sat, 07/13/2013 - 11:08pm

"I Survived: Beyond and Back" is one of the greatest and most interesting shows I've ever seen.

Definitely one of my favorites.

Sun, 07/14/2013 - 5:34am

You should watch the movie 'Enter the Void'. It's on Netflix and it's simply incredible especially if you're into DMT and the afterlife.

Mon, 07/15/2013 - 6:11am

I'll vouch for this cause that movie was amazing, I'm actually planning to watch it on shrooms soon

Thu, 07/18/2013 - 9:07am
Mon, 07/15/2013 - 7:37pm

That movie is crazy. I never finished it completely, but I felt like it changed me a little. It also made me feel pretty depressed for a few hours after ending it 3/4 of the way through. Haha.

Maybe DMT is somehow connected to the spirit world and this hallucination continues once your Sole has passed through a void in time that the DMT has opened in your mind. This would be the moment you pass through to Heaven or Hell. Also, if a person was to get shot in the head, does this still occur, because as we all know, when this happens its lights out 99.9999% percent of the time. With this happening, this is when a persons sole is trapped in the mortal world and becomes ghosts and such.Crazy to think about

mr_niceguy Says:

What is the time delay in this reality from induced, death-severe injuries? It could be that this "moment" trips our consciousness into a never-ending repetition of our lives. At least that's a theory I hold possible. Maybe I'm living out my life for the 900th time, and a couple minutes ago, or a couple seconds ago in my 1st reality I have just suffered a death blow. Maybe, like others have suggested, that your mindset presets what the mind produces from the DMT release. And since I believe this theory is possible, it really is what is happening at this "moment". huh. no? just speculation, it's all we can do really.

I found that out too a while ago and when I told this to a christian kid at my school, he tried to tell me that DMT wasn't in the body and all this other shit. Point being that's probably the truth but you'll never convince a religious person. They'll go on that "you're wrong and i'm right" bull shit

I feel that doing DMT is like practicing death. You see lots of things you're afraid of, but if you embrace it all you go to the other side, see the unreal, then the DMT is metabolized and the trip is over.

What, did you make a special new account to be an asshole with? Because for a person who's been a member for not even a seem to have this site all figured out and act like you run it.

I think you made a new account to bitch with so everybody didn't hate your old one. Either that or your just a dick. Either way quit getting so offended if you don't like somebodys highdea. Just IGNORE it.

Oh and I checked your up votes upvoted like 4 highdeas and downvoted like 16. And couple were really good. Quit being a troll and stick to one account

Tue, 07/16/2013 - 3:21pm

Haha I just noticed we both got the Simpsons but nah I wasn't getting mad. I'm just saying dude your not just down voting copy and paste Facebook shit. Your going to peoples original highdeas and saying "they arnt real highdeas" even though most of them are highdeas, you just don't like them or the person so you down vote them all and talk shit like miss Debbie downer. You went thru and down voted like 5 of some dudes highdeas and talked shit on all of em. We don't need your negative Nancy shit here.

I down vote shit too, I just don't be a dick about it and try to start comment fights all day. And you didn't just correct his spelling. Your being an asshole at the same time.

I'm not getting mad or anything man, I guess I'm just calling you out for making an account, just to be a dick with. I mean you already went and down voted my only highdea just cuz I called you Out and offended you.

And I run Springfield biiitch Hans moleman will cut a nigga!!

I'm not calling you names. I'm calling It how it is. Youuuu have this account to be a dick with...plain and simple. And no real stoner on this website needs your bullshit. My hghdea was not a childish observation...go ahead and ask a child to explain what I won't happen cuz I'm making good points and 12 other niggas liked it so i don't care if ur ass liked it. We all know ur just being a dick and making comments to start fights. Cuz for real nobody on this site goes to somebody's page and downvotes all there highdeas thennn to top it off u have to comment on them talking shit. An don't try that "make a real highdea and I'll up vote it" bullshit. I checked the highdeas you up voted. Theres like 5 and this is one of em...the other ones say "if I get 420 up votes then...." or " upvote if you don't do crack and only smoke weed" THOSE ARNT REAL HIGHDEAS!!!! Yeah so that means your a lying sack of shit and wouldn't up vote my highdea if it was any better. Cuz you down vote outta spite. Then try and say they arnt real highdeas....then you up vote the shittiest type of highdeas, a poll??? Get off this site nobody likes you debbie.
