Did you know every mammal including humans produces DMT naturally in their bodies? The same can be said for 1,000’s of plants.

I wanted to make sure you knew this before anyone wrote this off as a psychedelics or “drugs” conversation which is often the cultural association with DMT.

Right now there is a massive disconnect between mystical experiences and the world of Science. The gap is closing, but it often still feels like there’s these two camps who speak in different languages.

What we need is a bridge!

And that bridge just might be a greater understanding Dimethyltryptamine (DMT). You might have the heard of DMT because it’s the active psychedelic agent in things like Ayahuasca. But as I alluded too in the intro, it’s also produced naturally in every mammal and most plants! In fact, we have just as much DMT in our systems as serotonin.

John Chavez is the founder of DMTQuest which is an organization that is helping push forward the much needed research and education around DMT. Through financing studies and creating a media that educates and amplifies the potentiality of understanding this substance, he is helping us answer these questions.

John’s story is a fascinating one that in some ways mirrors my own. He had a radical and spontaneous mystical experience that redirected him to pursue answering and understanding the greater truths about the human experience.

One of my closest friends Justin Mares knows more about health then just about anyone I know. He’s built 3 food companies in Kettle & Fire, Perfect Keto, and Surely Wines which give him unique insight into how the stuff we put into our bodies is actually made. Now he is working on new company called True Medicine that is making it easier and more affordable to be healthy.

I’ve been a long time follower of his newsletter @  and a few years ago he started sharing staggering information on what is happening to the U.S. population's health citing our food system as a culprit. 

Check these stats out which we discuss in the episode:

  • The average testosterone of a 22 year old American male is the same as a 67 year old man 20 years ago

  • In 1990, there were 0 states with obesity greater than 20%. In 2018, there are 0 states with obesity less than 20%. Obesity, which is correlated to lots of health issues, has more then doubled in the past 28 years.

  • 25% of the pesticides we use in the U.S. for growing food (including organic) are illegal in Europe

  • The new food pyramid in the U.S. claims that sugary cereal is more healthy then eating an egg or piece of beed

  • 93% of streams, rivers and lakes in the US had some sort of like microplastic contamination in them

Let me start off by saying, I have zero interest in participating in what many call the transhuman movement. Specifically, implanting some type of technology into my body in order to alter or enhance the way in which I experience the world. 

That being said, I do think it’s important to understand what is going on. This is clearly going to be a thing in our lifetimes that will vastly impact culture and society and I’d rather be informed. A few weeks ago someone had recommended Singularity Weekly to me and I was startled to see how far along we are in this field.

I wanted to have Joe Allen the author of singularity weekly and Steven Bannon’s War Room transhuman expert. 

The most interesting thing that emerged from the conversation was the realization that transhumanism is very much a religion. There is a group of people that are attempting to transcend their current condition and achieve salvation. In these higher states, they also strive to achieve greater abilities of unity and access to higher intelligence.

Gee. Sounds kind of like most wisdom traditions. I guess the main difference is the mechanism they believe will usher into this change is technology. Joe called this worship of technology as our savior an inversion of spirituality. I tend to agree, but this new understanding certainly helped me better understand what is more fundamentally driving the leaders of these movements. 

I can’t say that my opinion has really shifted. I am increasingly getting excited about living a more analog life. Having less technology dominates my experience and generally being more connected to nature. This probably means I will have to move from my urban existence at some point, but I am okay with that. I increasingly think living in Urban areas with high degrees of invisible environmental toxins make it harder to be healthier than it needs to be. And I care more about myself and family being healthy than nice dinners with friends and access to luxury experiences. I think we will start to see this appeal to more and more urban professionals in the next decade. I guess we already are.
