This is a compilation of reports of using N,N-dimethyltryptamine (DMT), usually by smoking, mostly derived from a compilation by a person named "Pup" which was posted in 2005-2006 to the dmt.tribe.net website as DMT trip accounts. Pup did not identify the sources of these reports, and they remain anonymous, providing raw observational data for reflection upon what the use of DMT reveals to us. If you recognize your words here then you can be proud of helping to bring to public awareness the discovery of an alternate reality and a new science.
A report is marked "entities" if it mentions experience of one or more apparently independently-existing beings which interact in an apparently intelligent and intentional way with the observer. 226 reports are so marked. Thus 66% of these reports (two out of every three) mention these entities, often with detailed descriptions, thus providing confirmation of their existence. They are often seen 'at work', sometimes in maintaining reality — either 'our reality' or the reality experienced by a person in daily life. The entities are in some ways very human, and express apparently human emotions, but they can be (and usually are) totally bizarre.
These reports are extremely diverse, but almost all of them mention amazing colors, mind-boggling fractal patterns and so on. Apparently anything is possible, and many trippers report being shocked, dumbfounded, astonished and totally unable to understand the experience. Fear and terror are often felt, but often also joy, sometimes during the same trip. It is common for a person to feel that they have died, and some even 'know' that they have died, lending credence to the hypothesis (advanced already over 17 years ago in DMT and the Death State) that the form of consciousness accessed via DMT is what we wake up into when we die (thus suggesting that our physical embodiment is a kind of sleep and that our external-sensory experience is a kind of collective dream). Frequently trippers remember having been there before (perhaps before being born into their present physical existence?). Many people report that the experience is life-changing, and that they will never be the same. For many the experience is an epiphany too profound to be expressible adequately using ordinary language.
