DMT users commonly report meeting aliens, entities and elves. The phenomenon happens so frequently that Johns Hopkins have decided to investigate.

Dimethyltryptamine (DMT) is a molecule found in plants, animals and even the human body. When extracted with the right method it becomes a psychedelic substance strong enough to blast people into another dimension with alien beings. Or at least this is what many users report.

Researcher and neuroscientist Roland R. Griffiths is leading the study at John Hopkins university and has been researching the effects of various substances since the 1970s.

Participation in the study is a simple anonymous questionnaire which can be taken by clicking this link. The researchers are looking for people who have had “encounters with seemingly autonomous beings or entities after taking DMT.”

The takes from 20 to 40 minutes to complete, depending on how thorough you are with your answers. The questions ask about dosage, experience, type of DMT taken and if you have ever had what is known as a ‘breakthrough’ dose. The breakthrough dose is a strong enough dose to lose touch partially of fully with this reality: “By ‘breakthrough’ we mean the experience of passing through an entrance into another world or alternative reality.”

The researchers has said they “intend to publish the results from this study in the scientific literature and to present results at scientific meetings. We will also make the results publicly available by posting a notice of any scholarly publications on the website of the Council on Spiritual Practices (www.csp.org).” It will be very interesting to see these results and what the scientific communities makes of something so abstract.
