Using the Neuroscience of Information to Understand Reality - Effects of DMT

Quote:Whether you believe that DMT merely elicits highly complex hallucinations or somehow grants admission to autonomous worlds existing beyond the confines of our Universe, its effects are astonishing in their complexity and power. Although the realms DMT users find themselves tumbling into are ineffably strange and about as far from the everyday world as it’s possible to stray, the DMT space and the normal waking world are unified by their fundamental nature as emergent patterns of information represented by the brain.

Using the neuroscience of information, I will show how the structure of one’s subjective world – whether awake, dreaming, or during a breakthrough DMT trip – can be explained as a complex emergent pattern of information distributed across, and unified by, the activity of the cortical system. I will then use this basic model to explain the effects of psychedelic drugs in general, before discussing how DMT is able to switch the brain’s “reality channel”, hurling the tripper into the bizarre hyperdimensional realms experienced as the DMT space. Only then can we begin to speculate on whether the DMT worlds are more than mere hallucination...
