Held in high regard among the growing ‘shamanic’ and ‘psychedelic’ communities in the West, ayhuaska, called also yage, and its close relative DMT, are generally considered far more powerful in their effects than LSD, offering an experience that some have described as ‘astral bungee jumping’.
They also work directly on the amygdala, the circuit of the brain that discerns fact from falsehood, resulting in particularly convincing experiences which are storedin the brain as objectively real events rather than mere waking dreams. This makes them particularly effective weapons for mind control, and for exploitative Peruvian shaman to make a quick buck out of tourists in search of religious experience.
Whilst providing a powerful tool for self-reprogramming, the dangers of obsession and delusion should never be underestimated. They are extremely dangerous in the wrong hands.
