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

Horrible Documentary
15 May 2016 | by (colorado) – See all my reviews

Horrible Documentary - It is starts out with interesting information about the usage, history and some neurology of this hallucinogenic compound. Then half way through the lead researches of the studied inexplicably, fully endorses the idea that these people are literally traveling out into outer space and meeting with some kind of space aliens that live in the furthest extents of our universe and reality.

Based on no other reasoning then these people who are tripping their face off on this crazy drug say they saw some crazy stuff while they where dripping balls.

It is confounding that these ostensibly intelligent researchers would go on to advocate this pseudo-science meta-physical nonsense with absolutely no evidence or proof or valid reasoning to substantiate their claims. Except the fact that these people are seeing some crazy stuff while they are using a very powerful hallucinogenic compound.

Anybody that remotely believes that scientific methods such as using evidence and logic to come to an assertion will be completely turned off by this film. And see that the researches are only posing as legitimate scientist but are more interested in spewing out nonsensical, superstitious spiritual believes. If you believe in spiritual stuff that is fine, believe whatever you want. But don't try to trick me into believing that there is some type of legitimate scientific process that provides evidence for your assumptions.
