Q4LT.com will become DMTQuest.com

We’ve recently launched our “DMT Quest” venture in order to address some specific issues taking place in the research sector of endogenous DMT. We will be transitioning all the content on Q4LT.com and it will reside in the blog section of DMT Quest! (dmtquest.com)We will be making this complete transition of content over the next 2 weeks and will eventually dissolve the Q4LT.com domain following this time period.

We look forward to continuing to share interviews and information on the DMT Quest blog in the future! Please share any comments or suggestions at our new e-mail dmtquest@gmail.com!

Thank you for reading this blog for the past few years!

New! Interview with Leading DMT Researcher Dr. Jimo Borjigin

It’s difficult to recall the last time that I had a great meal and made the generic claim of “I love food”. Generally speaking, it’s either the restaurant that receives compliments, the type of meal that receives praise, or homage is paid to the chef directly. This is why it’s so amusing and yet perplexing when people seem to generically pronounce their “love for science” when an interesting study is published. Similarly to the cooks of a great meal… it is humans, people, scientists that actually carry out the experiments. These are the people who toil away in obscurity for years doing the hard lab work with little to no recognition for their efforts. It is my opinion that “science” gets way too much credit while real scientists (not celebrities in lab coats) should be the ones getting the credit and publicity of groundbreaking research. I believe that the recent DMT study published in...

New DMT Study Provides Additional Link to Gamma Wave Formation

A new study published in Scientific Reports definitively observed that indolethylamine-N-methyltransferase (INMT) is found in both human and rat brains throughout the cerebral cortex, choroid plexus, and pineal gland. The importance of this finding is based on the fact that INMT is the enzyme responsible for biosynthesizing DMT from tryptamine. Prior studies were inconclusive regarding this based on out-dated protocols that lacked sensitivity.

Looking at the “Anti-Vax” Reasoning

Let’s put the cart in front of the horse to begin with.

This piece will not question whether the scientific results in favor of influenza vaccination are correct. We assume they are.

This piece will not question whether there are any additives or preservatives to the influenza vaccination that harm the recipient. We assume they don’t.

This piece will not question whether the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) provide accurate statistics based on scientific methodology. We assume the CDC is up front about it’s data and limitations.

One might then ask… if we aren’t questioning the mechanics of how the influenza vaccine(s) works, do not believe preservatives in this vaccine are harmful, and concede that the CDC provides honest information regarding it’s generation of statistical information… there should be no logical questioning of the influenza vaccination program...

Commenting on the Kastrup-Imperial College Debate: Part 2

While the majority of the general public has never had experiences with psychedelic compounds, by contrast, coffee is one of the most ubiquitously ingested beverages throughout the world. One of the main reasons for this is due to the stimulatory effects of the chemical caffeine which is found in coffee beans. Many people claim that their brain doesn’t feel “primed” or “ready to go” until they’ve ingested their morning brew. A 2018 fMRI study in Scientific Reports observed that 200 mg of caffeine effected 60 caffeine-naïve human subjects by creating a widespread increase in resting brain entropy.

The definition of entropy is the measurement of the variety of configurations possible within a system. Brain entropy is defined as the number of neural states a given brain can access. A 2018 fMRI study in PLOS One observed the level of resting brain entropy of 892 human subjects and found...

Commenting on the Kastrup-Imperial College Debate: Part 1

Perspective is everything when it comes to a debate.

While discussions surrounding data generated using the scientific method and technological instruments should be somewhat straightforward, the differing perspectives is what we believe can cause these debates to go awry.

In recent times, philosopher Dr. Bernardo Kastrup has stirred up a discussion regarding the results of brain studies involving psychedelics. Kastrup has written extensively on the philosophical notion of idealism. Idealism is the concept that everything that takes place within the universe takes place in universal consciousness aka “the mind”. It proports that everything deemed as “physical” reality is based on our expectations and that the process of dissociation from “mind” is what forms the personal psyche. This insinuates that any facts and data generated by the scientific method/instruments is merely a correlate...

Playing with Razors… Looking at Kastrup

Modern science is largely comprised of interpreting data that has been generated via the development of instruments/machines that in essence act as extensions of the human sensory systems (sight, auditory, etc.). An example of this might be the microscope which was developed to see objects too small to be seen by the naked eye. Similarly (in an inverse manner), the telescope was developed to magnify distant objects.

When it comes to instruments that are utilized to measure brain activity, there are multiple types that generate very different data points. The most commonly used devices in field of neurology/neuroscience are the electroencephalogram (EEG), magnetoencephalogram (MEG), functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), computed tomography (CT), positron emission photography (PET), and the near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS).

EEG is a non-invasive device that utilizes electrodes...

DMT & Time Warps

While time itself appears to be objectively “fixed” when gazing at a clock or stopwatch… a person’s subjective experience of time can vary quite extensively depending on their environment (internal and external). Most people who have experienced a traumatic event in their lives such as a car accident or even an emotional event such a relationship break-up have described time as “moving very slowly”. In cases of the car accidents, many have alluded to notion that they saw everything transpire as if in slow motion. Following emotional trauma from a relationship break-up, many have stated that each day following the break-up felt like an “eternity”. In some cases, time can appear to slow down significantly during non-traumatic, yet perceptually intense sporting situations. On the opposite end of the spectrum… there’s a famous phrase that goes something like, “time flies when you’re having...

Something from Nothing… DMT Related?

This is the topic that makes concepts such as telepathy, telekinesis, and “Out of Body Experiences” look tame by comparison. This topic stretches the imagination of even the most weathered esoteric excavators. While we have no direct experience with the occurrence of the “materialization” of objects… this has been sporadically reported throughout history. Therefore… it is essentially mandatory that we speculate on some of the mechanisms of it’s transpirations.

When we refer to “materializatons”, we are referring to the concept of objects appearing essentially out of thin air. For this to occur, we believe that it is likely not truly taking place “out of thin air”. Perhaps the building blocks of the object are not easily seen by the naked eye but that hardly equates to a lack of existence being that the human visual spectrum is relatively limited… especially in average states of...

Endohuasca Soup Ingredients

Ayahuasca is the shamanic brew comprised of two plants… Psychotria Viridis which contains N,N-DMT and Banisteriopsis Caapi which contains the monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs) harmine, harmaline, and tetrahydroharmine. The combination of the plants allow the DMT to remain orally active which contributes to the “hallucinatory” effects of the potion.

When it comes to “Endohuasca”, it appears as though the combination of biochemicals is potentially much more varied. As we’ve covered quite extensively at Q4LT, there are three DMT(s) produced naturally within the body… N,N-dimethyltryptamine (N,N-DMT), 5-methoxy-N,N-dimethyltryptamine (5-MEO-DMT) and Bufotenin (5-HO-DMT). In terms of the endogenous monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs) that would afford the suppressed breakdown of the 3 DMT(s), we have come across the following: (MAO-A inhibitors) - Tribulin A, Tryptoline, Pinoline...
