When have you ever seen an alien?
Who has ever met elves or aliens on DMT? We ask for a scientist
For several years now, dimethyltryptamine (DMT) has been considered the craziest drug of all time. Now the renowned Johns Hopkins University in the USA has also discovered its interest in the hallucinogenic ingredient of ayahuasca. The scientists are looking for people who have crossed the threshold of reality with the help of DMT.
Neuroscientist Roland R. Griffiths, who leads the study, has been researching psychedelic experiences for decades. Participation in the study is completely anonymous and straightforward: volunteers simply fill out a questionnaire in English. In the form, participants describe their personal experience with the drug and answer questions about its short-term and long-term effects.
Numerous people describe having crossed a psychedelic threshold and met alien beings after taking DMT. We are talking about angels, demons or machine elves. The researchers at Johns Hopkins now want to get to the bottom of this phenomenon.
Filling out the questionnaire takes about 20 to 40 minutes, depending on how detailed you answer. Participants should, among other things, describe their experiences in detail and indicate how much and how they have taken DMT. "Have you ever taken a 'breakthrough' dose of N, N-DMT, a dose that had a very strong psychoactive effect?", The researchers want to know in the questionnaire.

Out and about with nice marble monsters: What you experience on DMT trips
Ten years ago I made my own experience with DMT: In a hut in the forest I smoked a dose that psychedelics guru Terence McKenna would have described as "heroic". In fact, that day I broke through reality and met powerful beings. The faceless marble creatures were terrifying but benign. They greeted me and told me that we had met before. Then they sent me back to earth.
The researchers want to hear exactly such stories. They want to know in the questionnaire whether I am still thinking about the beings or whether meeting them would have influenced my life in the long term. Does not have it. But maybe with you guys.
Help Johns Hopkins learn more about the Machine Elves by completing the questionnaire.
