One of the hypotheses he arrived at during his experiments was a link between DMT and alien abduction reports. The thing is that DMT is a very strong psychedelic substance, that happens to be produced by the human body. It is produced in very small quantities, so as not to disrupt a person's daily existence. But sometimes there occurs a spontaneous release of a very large quantity of DMT into the blood, for no apparent reasons. And it is due to DMT that, according to him, people experience alien abductions. He came to that conclusion because practically every volunteer in his project saw some alien ships, and experienced alien encounters while under the influence of DMT.
So based on that report, what is the conclusion? That these experiences are nothing more then a trip out, or does this DMT actually do something else?
In other words, are those experiences just illusions or something that we just can not see with our normal senses we use on an everyday basis, thus those who can only use those senses can not see, therefore it seems trivial to them?
And in more words.... perhaps all these ships and aliens, etc. are all around us all the time..... not something I actually believe per say, but being devil's advocate, there is nothing ruling out the possibility.
Of course there's nothing really ruling out the possibility of God existing either....
