The Spirit Molecule
Not so much of a drug, more a vehicle that gets you to a place
“You’re at the top of the rollercoaster: it’s like that moment before orgasm… you know it’s going to happen, and there’s nothing you can do to stop it – and you go down the other side. And those five, ten, twelve minutes that you’re gone, all time is suspended. And you are in a different place.”
So says Ian Winn, author of The Techno Pagan Octopus Messiah, of DMT… dimethyltryptamine… the primary psychoactive substance in ayahuasca, a shamanistic brew used for divinatory and healing purposes, and something many people believe can be both a life-affirming and transcendent spiritual experience.
“DMT is not so much of a drug, more a vehicle that gets you to a place”, says Ian. “At the moment of death, the pineal gland contracts, and that’s what mediates the human soul leaving the body. That’s what DMT does.”
Joining Ian on tonight’s reality-hacking show is Greg Kuhn, author of Why Quantum Physicists Don’t Get Fat. “What you create from the quantum filed is what you expect”, says Greg. How can you use that to lose weight? Well, listen and find out!

We couldn’t do it without you, and that’s the truth. You really do keep us on the air.
