High Dimension = DMT

In my understanding, DMT gives us the vision of super high-frequency vibration (which gives us great insight over the mind) and Salvia gives us the vision of very low-frequency vibrations, more like the broad energy of the fabric of reality itself.

A small note: Depending on the dose and extraction of the Salvia, the trip can be extremely physical and low vibration or it can be very mental with entire lifetimes lived in the realm of the mind.

DMT is usually more comfortable because — I think — it shows us the inner working of the mind and kind of…

The legal psychedelic market is estimated to become a multi-billion market by 2027 by PR Newswire.

There are already public companies listed on big exchanges — like Compass Pathways on NASDAQ — that are decided to make psychedelics the next big thing.

Just this week, California passed a bill to legalize possession of psychedelics like LSD and psilocybin (magic mushrooms). This is a huge step for the balanced and responsible implementation of sacred tools in the modern lifestyle.

“Psychedelics are to the study of the mind what the microscope is to biology and the telescope is to astronomy” — Dr…

Hello and welcome.

If you are reading this you are interested in learning more about what I do.

I organized my Medium stories in themes and will update this document with some selections of my work from time to time.

One of the things I enjoy talking about is my professional passion:

I bet that we both know someone who never breaks eye contact when they speak.

A few minutes into the conversation and your facial muscles start to feel the fatigue from tensing a smile to show that you are listening.

The forced — not necessarily fake — smile and little head nods are essential to keep the conversation flowing well, however, moderation is everything.

If the speaker does not break eye contact the listener feels like they also can’t look away for a second and this tension contributes to an energy-draining social experience.

I am also willing to bet that…

Bitcoin is not a coin.

It’s unfortunate that the ‘-coin’ in the name makes people’s minds go straight to the monetary aspect of the technology, but I think that people must be reminded that Bitcoin is an experiment that transaction by transaction; hash by hash; tests an incorruptible information system.

The Crypto Experiment

Why does Bitcoin increases in value day after day?

The reason is simple, every second that Bitcoin remains working with no signs of corruption, the more people believe in the technology, and the more people believe in it, the more value it acquires.

Bitcoin is an experiment that tests a…

What is a Bad Trip?

“There’s no such thing as a bad trip” is a concept that is rising in popularity.

However, I don’t subscribe to this concept.

To me, there is such a thing as a bad trip and it is determined by how we choose to deal with an uncomfortable experience.James W Jesso

A bad trip is much more than just an unpleasant psychedelic experience.

The ineffable aspect of the psychedelic experience adds to the mist around the subject and only those who lived through a bad trip know how serious it feels when the bad kicks in.

To many psychonauts, a bad trip is triggered by a eureka moment, like an epiphany…

Being Human.

A good writer must have a deep understanding of what it means to be human.

This can only come from having a strong sense of right and wrong, as well as being willing to question one’s own beliefs at any time.

A good writer must also have a strong sense of empathy, and be able to put themselves in the shoes of others in order to better understand them.
