Storyline

The Spirit Molecule investigates dimethyltryptamine (DMT), an endogenous psychoactive compound, which exists in humans and numerous species of plants and animals. The documentary traces Dr. Rick Strassman's government-sanctioned, human DMT research and its many trials, tribulations, and inconceivable realizations. A closer examination of DMT's effects through the lens of two traditionally opposed concepts, science and spirituality, The Spirit Molecule explores the connections between cutting-edge neuroscience, quantum physics, and human spirituality. Strassman's research, and the experiences of the human test subjects before, during, and after the intense clinical trials, raises many intriguing questions. A variety of experts voice their unique thoughts and experiences with DMT within their respective fields. As Strassman's story unfolds, the contributors weigh in on his remarkable theories, including the synthesis of DMT in our brain's pineal gland, its link to near-death & ... Written by Mitch Schultz

There is no science here..
24 January 2012 | by (LA, California) – See all my reviews

This is one the most horrible documentaries I've ever watched. Anyone who puts "DMT" and "Parallel Universes" together in one sentence, not only does not understand quantum mechanics, but is so stupid to believe a psychedelic drug experience has anything do to with solving quantum mechanics problems.

There are hundreds of genius scientists working on every aspect of quantum mechanics for years and billions of dollars are invested in our understanding of our universe ( Have you heard of CERN? ) and suddenly bunch of lunatics find our connection to the "Parallel Universes" by taking a mind-altering drug?!? But I still want people to see it. Everyone needs to realize any information could be presented in a scientific-sounding way with bunch of PhDs in the interview list and yet be so full of s***.
