A startling new theory suggests that endogenous (naturally occurring in the brain) dimethyltryptamine (DMT) which up until now had no known purpose is directly related to our perception of reality according to a 2008 medical study. This chemical widely used in native shamanic cultures in the western hemisphere as a “doorway” to the spirit realm and referred to in the west as the “spirit molecule” is thought to weave the input we perceive from our senses into what we experience as “waking consciousness”.
If this theory is correct then in essence what we perceive as reality is an elaborate hallucination. When this system malfunctions it produces altered states of “reality” which clash with our common experience. In one sense schizophrenics and others suffering from delusions are simply experiencing an altered reality which makes sense to them but seems delusional to us.
