Graham Hancock explores the #ancient #origins of #art, #religion, and #supernatural experiences with #spirits, #gods, #aliens and #death.
50,000 thousand years ago these concepts didn't exist within #human #culture. What triggered these spiritual ideas and stories that would shape the world we live in today?
#Altered states of #consciousness. Our hunter gatherer ancestors used #meditation, #fasting, #sensory #deprivation, ritualistic dancing #ceremonies, and #hallucinogenic plants to tune their consciousness to different channels. In this state of #trance they would communicate with entities while blasting through a different dimension.
So what are the origins of spiritual realms, supernatural entities, and God? People tripping their balls off 50,000 years ago and sharing their stories. #DMT is a chemical found in many plants and is famous for sending people into the "spirit realm" when taken in high doses. DMT is also naturally produced in the human brain and is heavily released during near death experiences. Perhaps DMT simply tunes the brain to a different channel of #reality and these supernatural phenomena are more real than we think.
