Living in the information age, it’s easy to develop a false sense of how much we really know when the answers to all our questions are just few clicks or a google search away. But with all this information at the tip of our fingers that can be accessed at any time, is it possible that it has it become harder to accept not knowing?
In this Podcast with Dr Rick Strassman we discusses his thoughts on consciousness, the universe and ultimately, how DMT can serve as a powerful reminder that we know nothing at all. Rick Strassman is most known for the DMT studies that where featured in the amazing documentary DMT The Spirit molecule.

RICK STRASSMAN M.D. holds degrees from Stanford University and Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University. He took his internship and general psychiatry residency at the University of California, Davis, Medical Center in Sacramento and he spent ten years as a tenured professor at the University of Mexico he performed the first new human studies with psychedelic drugs in the US in over 20 years. His research involved the powerful naturally-occurring compound, DMT – N,N-dimethyltryptamine. Led to this substance through his earlier study of the pineal gland as a potential biological locus for spiritual experiences, he administered several hundred doses of DMT to approximately 60 volunteers between 1990 and 1995. He wrote about this research in the popular book, DMT: The Spirit Molecule, which has sold over 100,000 copies, has been translated into 12 languages, and is now available as an audio-book. It also inspired an independent documentary by the same name, picked up by Warner Bros distributing in Fall, 2011. With three distinguished collaborators, he co-authored Inner Paths to Outer Space, which looks more carefully at the common “other worlds” experience that volunteers frequently reported during his research.
