"The work of Rick Strassman with DMT, and of Albert Hofmann (the discoverer of LSD), as well as the recent findings with Ecstasy and psilocybin, suggest the need for a new model of how the brain works -- not simply as a generator of consciousness but as a receiver of consciousness. According to this radical new model, but deploying a slightly different analogy, the brain is like a TV set that is "hardwired" into the single "channel" of everyday physical reality -- Rick Strassman calls it "channel normal." What psychedelics may do when used and administered properly is "retune the receiver wavelength of the brain," thus providing us with regular, repeated, reliable access to other levels of reality that surround us at all times but are not normally accessible to our senses. It is even possible that these long-reviled drugs open a secret doorway inside our own minds allowing us to approach the Holy Grail of quantum physics -- freestanding parallel universes and the intelligent beings who inhabit them."
