Psychedelics and the Charge Field?

Post by Cr6 on Sun Dec 20, 2015 6:10 pm

The way the human brain perceives reality is likely associated with how the Brain "receives" the charge field and processes it in neurons and chemical reactions.  N,N-dimethyltryptamine (DMT) which is naturally in the brain, is likely a key to unlocking how the brain processes the "Charge Field" to form our perceptions/reality.  Perhaps tryptamines have a deep mapping for use with the Charge Field and the reception in the brain?

DMT: You Cannot Imagine a Stranger Drug or a Stranger Experience
By Tao Lin
https://www.vice.com/read/dmt-you-cannot-imagine-a-stranger-drug-or-a-stranger-experience-365

The reason it’s so confounding is because its impact is on the language-forming capacity itself. So the reason it’s so confounding is because the thing that is trying to look at the DMT is infected by it—by the process of inspection. So DMT does not provide an experience that you analyze. Nothing so tidy goes on. The syntactical machinery of description undergoes some sort of hyper-dimensional inflation instantly, and then, you know, you cannot tell yourself what it is that you understand. In other words, what DMT does can’t be downloaded into as low-dimensional a language as English.

And the weird thing about DMT is it does not affect what we ordinarily call the mind. The part that you call you—nothing happens to it. You're just like you were before, but the world has been radically replaced—100 percent—it's all gone, and you're sitting there, and you're saying, "Jesus, a minute ago I was in a room with some people, and they were pushing some weird drug on me, and, and now, what's happened? Is this the drug? Did we do it? Is this it?"

I've been doing a bit of my own research into psychedelics lately and found a rather interesting passage in someone's description of their father's experience on LSD (he was taking notes while his father was on the trip). This was a more spiritual experience rather than a 'druggie' thing, and it was a good read too, but this paragraph really blew my mind:


Then he became aware of something new to him -- a dynamic within the crystalline, a soft and flowing quality -- and discovered that he was this too. 'There's all this space between molecules!' 'Right!' I yelled. 'And something in it!' 'Right!!' 'Something strung like embroidery, gathered in accumulations of meaning ...' He savored the polar qualities, invented his own names for them, repeated the names in incantation: 'the angularity of crystal, the sinuousness of vapor;' and then realized, 'There's a sense in which all this is manufacturing itself, all in a harmony, a quality of tension between them.' And with this phrasing of the Tao-poles he went beyond, into the state from which all reappears. He was all, knew that he knew directly the total history of each least tendril of the energy that makes what is. Or so I surmised from my own experience, as he was silent for half an hour, leaving only the buoy of his last assertion to mark the depths he was exploring.

Now it isn't a direct relation, but I couldn't help but think of the charge field when I read that paragraph. Obviously, an experience like this is extremely subjective and people try to explain these things in the terms that they know, but it put a big smile on my face.

This led me to look at the chemical structures of some common drugs and they weren't as complicated as I thought they would be. LSD is probably one of the most complicated, Heroine is slightly less complex but Amphetamines are quite simple, basically just a coupe of Benzene rings attached to each other (Bi-phenol) with some other small hydrocarbons attached as well. It's times like these I really miss being able to create models of molecules.

Yeah Nevyn, I agree with your points.  It is something worth keeping an eye on in all of this. How the Charge Field affects our thinking?

For example, another "Charge Field" influenced substance would be ATP and cAMP. They have an interesting connection with Serotonin receptors -- (this is from my very limited research).  These redox reactions are involved in fueling human cell energy. In a peculiar way, LSD/DMT may change the Charge field reception for NAD+ and ATP cycles that ultimately fuel the brain:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NADH
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lysergic_acid_diethylamide

Related is finding out actually "where" memories are "stored" in the brain? This is not fully researched.

Also simple Glucose
Glucose is then transported across the apical membrane of the enterocytes by SLC5A1 (SGLT1), and later across their basal membrane by SLC2A2 (GLUT2).[24] Some of the glucose is converted to lactic acid by astrocytes, which is then utilized as an energy source by brain cells; some of the glucose is used by intestinal cells and red blood cells, while the rest reaches the liver, adipose tissue and muscle cells, where it is absorbed and stored as glycogen (under the influence of insulin).

Erogmines:

Formula C33H35N5O5
Molecular mass 581.66 g/mol

   O=C3N1CCC[C@H]1[C@]2(O)O[C@](C(=O)N2[C@H]3Cc4ccccc4)(NC(=O)[C@@H]8/C=C7/c5cccc6c5c(cn6)C[C@H]7N(C)C8)C
Ergotamine is an ergopeptine and part of the ergot family of alkaloids; it is structurally and biochemically closely related to ergoline. It possesses structural similarity to several neurotransmitters, and has biological activity as a vasoconstrictor.

The mechanism of action of ergotamine is complex.[5] The molecule shares structural similarity with neurotransmitters such as serotonin, dopamine, and epinephrine and can thus bind to several receptors acting as an agonist. The anti-migraine effect is due to constriction of the intracranial extracerebral blood vessels through the 5-HT1B receptor, and by inhibiting trigeminal neurotransmission by 5-HT1D receptors. Ergotamine also has effects on the dopamine and norepinephrine receptors. Its side effects are due mainly to its action at the D2 dopamine and 5-HT1A receptors.[6]

Interesting theories, I've read a lot of theories on psychedelics and will not post it.

It seems that while on LSD (at least on micro-doses), people feel like they are glowing. Maybe the body emits biophotons (see Fritz Albert Popp). Saints are always represented with a halo of light around them and it seems that psychedelics make biophotons in the eyes (phosphenes, hallucinations).

I've also read that dogs and maybe humans (on psychedelics) can have magnetoperception (add http, I'm not allowed to post the link as I'm a new member): https://raypeatforum.com/community/threads/dogs-primates-and-maybe-even-humans-can-sense-magnetic-fields.9908

I haven't touched these things for twenty years now, but my experiences with LSD and psiolcybin were definitely of a luminal nature. I remember being lost in a Christmas light for what seemed like hours on acid, with a perpetual zooming and some rather intricate matrices as I went deeper and deeper. Light was like a solid. It's very difficult to explain or describe, but it was amazing. The mind is definitely amplified in all ways (except long-term memory, which tends to disappear for the duration).

Once while taking both LSD and psilocybin, I witnessed what I like to call a "pre-tracer". I was gazing up at a blue summer sky, no clouds, and saw a slight wiggle quite a distance up. The wiggle seemed to be soaring, flapping, and flying like a bird. And sure enough, as I looked to my right, there was a seagull some 50-100 feet behind the wiggle. The bird followed the wiggle. I don't think this was temporal distortion or anything magical, but it sure was magnificent. Was my mind simply displacing the bird?

Yeah Jared, the sensitivity to light-photon observations are greatly enhanced though a clear memory of it is not.

There might be something with striosomes in the brain and inputs:

Waeber C, Palacios JM. Binding sites for 5-hydroxytryptamine-2 receptor agonists are predominantly located in striosomes in the human basal ganglia. Brain Res Mol Brain Res 1994;24:199–209.

Neuroscientists Identify Brain Circuit That Controls Decision-Making Under Conflict

The new study grew out of an effort to figure out the role of striosomes — clusters of cells distributed through the the striatum, a large brain region involved in coordinating movement and emotion and implicated in some human disorders. Graybiel discovered striosomes many years ago, but their function had remained mysterious, in part because they are so small and deep within the brain that it is difficult to image them with functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI).

Previous studies from Graybiel’s lab identified regions of the brain’s prefrontal cortex that project to striosomes. These regions have been implicated in processing emotions, so the researchers suspected that this circuit might also be related to emotion.

Evidence of a 'higher' state of consciousness?
Impact of psychedelics on neural signal diversity measured

https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2017/04/170419091624.htm
(more at link...)

Date: April 19, 2017
Source: University of Sussex
Summary:

Scientific evidence of a 'higher' state of consciousness has been found in a new study. Using brain imaging technology, researchers measured the tiny magnetic fields produced in the brain and found that, across three psychedelic drugs, one measure of conscious level -- the neural signal diversity -- was reliably higher.

Scientific evidence of a 'higher' state of consciousness has been found in a study led by the University of Sussex.

Neuroscientists observed a sustained increase in neural signal diversity -- a measure of the complexity of brain activity -- of people under the influence of psychedelic drugs, compared with when they were in a normal waking state.

The diversity of brain signals provides a mathematical index of the level of consciousness. For example, people who are awake have been shown to have more diverse neural activity using this scale than those who are asleep.

This, however, is the first study to show brain-signal diversity that is higher than baseline, that is higher than in someone who is simply 'awake and aware'. Previous studies have tended to focus on lowered states of consciousness, such as sleep, anaesthesia, or the so-called 'vegetative' state.

The team say that more research is needed using more sophisticated and varied models to confirm the results but they are cautiously excited.

Professor Anil Seth, Co-Director of the Sackler Centre for Consciousness Science at the University of Sussex, said: "This finding shows that the brain-on-psychedelics behaves very differently from normal.

"During the psychedelic state, the electrical activity of the brain is less predictable and less 'integrated' than during normal conscious wakefulness -- as measured by 'global signal diversity'.

"Since this measure has already shown its value as a measure of 'conscious level', we can say that the psychedelic state appears as a higher 'level' of consciousness than normal -- but only with respect to this specific mathematical measure."

For the study, Michael Schartner, Adam Barrett and Professor Seth of the Sackler Centre reanalysed data that had previously been collected by Imperial College London and the University of Cardiff in which healthy volunteers were given one of three drugs known to induce a psychedelic state: psilocybin, ketamine and LSD.

Using brain imaging technology, they measured the tiny magnetic fields produced in the brain and found that, across all three drugs, this measure of conscious level -- the neural signal diversity -- was reliably higher.

This does not mean that the psychedelic state is a 'better' or more desirable state of consciousness, the researchers stress; instead, it shows that the psychedelic brain state is distinctive and can be related to other global changes in conscious level (e.g. sleep, anaesthesia) by application of a simple mathematical measure of signal diversity. Dr Muthukumaraswamy who was involved in all three initial studies commented: "That similar changes in signal diversity were found for all three drugs, despite their quite different pharmacology, is both very striking and also reassuring that the results are robust and repeatable."

The findings could help inform discussions gathering momentum about the carefully-controlled medical use of such drugs, for example in treating severe depression.

Dr Robin Cahart-Harris of Imperial College London said: "Rigorous research into psychedelics is gaining increasing attention, not least because of the therapeutic potential that these drugs may have when used sensibly and under medical supervision.

"The present study's findings help us understand what happens in people's brains when they experience an expansion of their consciousness under psychedelics. People often say they experience insight under these drugs -- and when this occurs in a therapeutic context, it can predict positive outcomes. The present findings may help us understand how this can happen."

As well as helping to inform possible medical applications, the study adds to a growing scientific understanding of how conscious level (how conscious one is) and conscious content (what one is conscious of) are related to each other.

Professor Seth said: "We found correlations between the intensity of the psychedelic experience, as reported by volunteers, and changes in signal diversity. This suggests that our measure has close links not only to global brain changes induced by the drugs, but to those aspects of brain dynamics that underlie specific aspects of conscious experience."
