appears that humans have been in contact with
“alien” life-forms and
intelligences for millennia. Anyone who is open-minded enough to
investigate honestly the available cultural, physical and historical
evidence will quickly come to the conclusion that it is unlikely we are
the only intelligent
beings in the Universe. Ancient rock paintings in North America, North
Australia; olden tales of elves, fairies, and pixies; and stories of
people who claim that they have been contacted or abducted by alien
beings, all attest to our long-standing and ongoing relationship to
Even our religious texts are full of compelling descriptions of
non-human, “spiritual” beings with which we have
had contact and
relationships. Check out the
Genesis story in the Bible – it talks about “sons
of the gods” who
walked on Earth, whose giant offspring
resulted from their union with human women. In addition, angels of all
sorts continually appear
in the Hebrew Bible. And Ezekiel, the Old Testament prophet, describes
in great detail a chariot flying
in mid-air, upon which non-human beings appear. In his book
Revisited,” Zecharia Sitchin interprets the Hebrew
texts in light of their similarity to Sumerian counterparts, and
proposes that humans
were created by a technologically advanced alien race, called Annunaki.

far as we know—cannot carry information between dimensions.
Shamanism Jim DeKorne postulates: “For human
dimensions of three and less are external, and dimensions higher than
internal. Hence, for us, all spatial dimensions higher than three are
psychic. It follows from this that a four-dimensional being would be
subjectively by a three-dimensional being as an inner voice or
hallucination, as an interior phenomenon.”
Some claim that people have been venturing into alien worlds for
thousands of years.
Most of these people have not been NASA astronauts, scientists working
project, or even science-fiction fans. Many of these explorers have not
been prepared for what they have experienced, and most of them have
heard about the First Contact manuals. Instead, they have been
seekers, shamans, religious ascetics, medical research subjects,
patients, drug abusers, and ordinary people who, accidentally and
against their will, have assumed the role of human ambassadors to alien
turns out that methods do exist that allow us to visit other realms,
and have been
used by humans for millennia. These are spiritual technologies: tools
that allow one to leave his or her body and travel into and
through these invisible worlds. Buddhist monks and Hindu sages who are
able to enter deep levels of meditation
tell us that it is possible to travel this way. So do Native American
who utilize sacred plants such as peyote, magic mushrooms and ayahuasca
The original inspiration for this book came from the results of
conducted on human volunteers who were administered intravenous DMT, or
dimethyltryptamine, at the University of New Mexico
in the 1990s. DMT is a hallucinogenic compound found normally in the
human and other mammalian bodies, as well as in a huge number of
plants, including one used to make the Amazon brew ayahuasca. DMT
changes in consciousness, similar to those described in dreams,
exaltation, psychosis, and near-death experiences.
According to shamanic practitioners, use of sacred plants such as
peyote, sacred mushrooms,
or ayahuasca frees the soul from corporeal confinement, facilitates
to alternate realities, and allows communication with the spiritual
These plants are also used to diagnose and treat a wide variety of
psychological, spiritual and physical.
We argue in our book that some of these experiences can also be

horror, fantasy, or ghost stories. Participants in these rituals
frequently report encounters with ‘alien” and
non-corporeal, spiritual beings—some of them benevolent, some
experience time travel, telepathy, or merging with divinity.
Almost half of the subjects participating in a clinical study of DMT
conducted by Rick
Strassman reported contact with absolutely alien
realms while remaining lucid. Some of them described seeing vast,
orbital structures around unknown planets, or meeting and interacting
alien beings. These contacts ranged from various attempts at
bizarre surgical procedures and even sexual intercourse with aliens!
Many of these reports parallel those of the “alien
leading us to speculate about a relationship between endogenous DMT and
encounters. In a similar vein, it is interesting to note
that subjects who have been hypnotized for a variety of purposes report
similar experiences, which it is conceivable, may be related to
hypnosis-induced release of endogenous DMT.
But are such experiences real? Can hallucinations be true? Did these

Some science-fiction literature, art, and film indeed may have been
inspired by mind-expanding
experiences. Lewis Carroll’s Alice
Wonderland and Philip K. Dick’s
brilliant novels Valis, Ubik, and The
Divine Invasion allude to other realities.
Movies such as Total Recall, Dark
The Matrix, Renegade, eXistenZ,
Vanilla Sky, The Fountain, The Waking Life, The Truman Show, The
X-Files, The Lord of the Rings, and even Star
Wars have similar altered-states themes.
One wonders: can information bypass the five senses to enter our minds?
The power of
intuition and mind-expanding experiences may explain why almost every
idea introduced by science-fiction writers has eventually entered
science. Academic articles on hyperspace, time travel, faster than
light speed, teleportation, and parallel universes once belonged solely
to the realm
of science fiction, but are published nowadays in journals of
physics. Some of these ideas have even reached an experimental stage.
