What is DMT and is it a chemical light in your brain?
I’ve spoken to several people who have jumped into their own psyche with DMT. These conversations enabled me to see that this psychedelic drug brings a wealth of insights into the universe. However, this never explains what the DMT experience really is. For me it makes sense if the chemical DMT is metaphorically described as light in our brain. Though that might be more of a philosophy than a theory.
DMT was something that I was interested in but haven’t experienced myself. But the trip doesn’t explain what the experience really is. It’s like eating an omelette and trying to understand the life of the chicken that laid the egg. If your not the chef, just enjoy the damn omelette while it lasts.

What is DMT?
DMT – the alleged ghost molecule – is produced in the pineal gland in all of our brains. The dream drug is her other name, as it is largely responsible for our dreams. The concept of dreaming explains the wild otherworldly visions a person is drawn into when using DMT – smoked or as ayahuasca.
There might be a way to interpret the DMT experience without first hand experience, albeit still in a philosophical sense.

The light in your head, a ghost molecule lantern
When a beam of light shoots out of a lightbulb and bounces off a wall, its frequency or wavelength changes. The state of the changed photon shows color and dimension. However, instead of a photon that changes frequency or wavelength, imagine a molecule undergoing a chemical change. DMT is a basic molecule that is almost identical to serotonin. Imagine if the pineal gland uses DMT just like a flashlight.
Enlighten the source of thought
Color in this concept is essentially a metaphor for a chemical reaction.
The dream drug is sent out of your pineal gland like light from a lightbulb and then reflected off other parts of your brain. The differences between DMT before and after receiving it may include a chemical code that tells your brain, for example, how much serotonin or dopamine there is. So the brain can essentially see itself through a chemical messenger – the light in your head. If you are dreaming or taking ayahuasca, this idea suggests that DMT floods your brain like light but is made up of chemicals instead of photons. This inundation seems to take over other senses trying to interpret the chemical reactions in progress.

An abundance of chemical information floods your senses in a way that, in the experience of many people, is interpreted through great visions. Could these elves in the DMT realm simply be personifications of various thought voices that you let roam free in your head? Are deep corners of consciousness that are normally kept in the dark eventually illuminated by the ghost molecule?
