How LSD Causes Ego Dissolution

How LSD Causes Ego Dissolution

Recent studies have shown that fungi-derived hallucinogenic drugs like LSD and magic mushrooms can temporarily highjack our bodies’ normal functions and chemicals, allowing our egos to dissolve and users to tap into a different reality. A 2016 study found that “Significant relationships were found between ego-dissolution and decreased delta and alpha power and between simple hallucinations.”

According to Big Think, Dr Robin Carhart-Harris, from the Department of Medicine at Imperial College London, who led the research, elaborated on this discovery:

“We observed brain changes under LSD that suggested our volunteers were ‘seeing with their eyes shut’ — albeit they were seeing things from their imagination rather than from the outside world. We saw that many more areas of the brain than normal were contributing to visual processing under LSD — even though the volunteers’ eyes were closed. Furthermore, the size of this effect correlated with volunteers’ ratings of complex, dreamlike visions. “

Dr. Carthart-Harris explained further that under LSD, people’s brain networks behave in a “unified” way, with specialized functions like vision, movement and hearing working without separation.

He said: ”Our results suggest that this effect underlies the profound altered state of consciousness that people often describe during an LSD experience. It is also related to what people sometimes call ‘ego-dissolution’, which means the normal sense of self is broken down and replaced by a sense of reconnection with themselves, others and the natural world. This experience is sometimes framed in a religious or spiritual way — and seems to be associated with improvements in well-being after the drug’s effects have subsided.”

The researchers from the 2016 study said that it is evident the distribution of power in the brain is decreased across a broad frequency range under LSD and revealed that sources of the power decreases were relatively distributed throughout the brain. Significant effects were found to occur in the PCC/precuneus (theta, alpha, and beta) and other high-level cortical regions (delta-beta).

You must understand that when you take LSD, your alpha and delta waves or power centers stop working in their usual manner. 

Brain waves are oscillating electrical voltages in the brain measuring just a few millionths of a volt. There are five known brain waves, and the central frequencies of human EEG waves, along with their characteristics, are listed in the table below.

Frequency band Frequency Brain states
Gamma (γ) >35 Hz Concentration
Beta (β) 12–35 Hz Anxiety dominant, active, external attention, relaxed
Alpha (α) 8–12 Hz Very relaxed, passive attention
Theta (θ) 4–8 Hz Deeply relaxed, inward-focused
Delta (δ) 0.5–4 Hz Sleep

Our Delta waves are the slowest recorded brain waves in humans and are primarily measured coming from infants and young children and are associated with the deepest levels of relaxation and restorative, healing sleep. 

Delta is prominently seen in brain injuries, learning problems, inability to think, and severe ADHD

LSD suppresses these Delta Waves from their natural state, so you become almost as if you are no longer thinking and using your normal brain to create a sleepwalking-like state. It is as if LSD hacks the various biological processes and chemicals of the human body and mind to temporarily allow the fungal consciousness to merge with our own, which our brain waves can now be measured.

Magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and magnetoencephalography (MEG) research has reported increased visual cortex blood flow, increased whole-brain functional integration (decreased modulatory organization), and decreased oscillatory power across a broad frequency range under LSD. 

The term oscillatory power is related to “brain (or neural) oscillations,” which refers to the rhythmic and repetitive electrical activity generated spontaneously and in response to stimuli by neural tissue in the central nervous system. Many studies have found that neural oscillations shape the way the brain processes sensory information of electrophysiological stimuli in the environment in humans and animals.

Neural oscillations are fundamental in synchronizing neural activity within and across brain regions, helping coordinate the neural processes underlying cognition, memory, perception, and behavior. (From: The Neurobiology of Schizophrenia, 2016)

A 2106 study “found that LSD alters the energy and the power of individual harmonic brain states in a frequency-selective manner. The researchers stated, “Remarkably, this leads to an expansion of the repertoire of active brain states, suggestive of a general reorganization of brain dynamics given the non-random increase in co-activation across frequencies. Interestingly, the frequency distribution of the active repertoire of brain states under LSD closely follows power-laws indicating a reorganization of the dynamics at the edge of criticality. “

As I have said before, a news study by CalTech shows that changes in alpha wave amplitude occur when the brain is being engaged as spinning clockwise or is in a resting or “autopilot” mode, making it spin counterclockwise while following rotations of an Earth-strength magnetic field.

The researchers stated that there is a widespread drop in alpha power when a human brain is unengaged.

According to Caltech, “the image above shows the changes in alpha wave amplitude—a measure of whether the brain is being engaged or is in a resting or “autopilot” mode—following rotations of an Earth-strength magnetic field. On the left, counterclockwise rotations induce a widespread drop in alpha wave amplitude. (The darker the blue color, the more dramatic the drop.) No drop is observed after clockwise rotation or in the FIXED condition.” (Credit: Connie X. Wang / Caltech)

The researchers from the 2016 study said that decreased alpha and delta power may be consistent with the notion of “seeing with eyes-shut” under psychedelics correlating with profound changes in consciousness, typified by ego-dissolution. They said that reduced alpha power could have disinhibitory consequences, facilitating the release of anarchic patterns of excitation that manifest spontaneously and experientially as visual hallucinations.

It is this reduction in human alpha waves that I contend allow the LSD to highjack our nervous systems and various chemical processes via the gut-brain access in humans to create what scientists call “anarchic patterns of excitation that manifest as visual hallucinations. “

The premise is simple as it relates to fungal-derived drugs such as LSD, our brains, and consciousness.

When our brains are not thinking actively, it is unengaged, and there is a widespread drop in alpha power. LSD places our consciousness in “resting or autopilot mode,” making our alpha brain waves stop spinning and spin counterclockwise following the rotations of an Earth-strength magnetic field.

As if we become one with the earth’s magnetic biosphere and allow the consciousness of the fungi to take over. 

Our sense of self dies. 

Our ego dissolves.

We are reborn anew.

Researchers Discover LSD Allows People to Enter the Matrix

Researchers Discover LSD Allows People to Enter the Matrix

A new study on LSD (lysergic acid diethylamide) by the University of Cambridge and Imperial College in London has shown that the drug allows users to free brain activity to “trespass anatomical rules,” because it triggers an altered state of consciousness.

Anatomical means relating to the bodily structure or relating to human anatomy so by taking LSD, users are not confined to the so-called normal rules of being human.

This induces what is called “psychosis.” The land where people walk the line between human reality and the spirit world.

Consciousness is believed to involve the integration of multiple segregated brain networks and their subnetworks, and the researchers’ goal is to study patterns of brain connectivity and consciousness under the influence of LSD.

According to the study;

Our main finding is that the effects of LSD on brain function and subjective experience are non-uniform in time: LSD makes globally segregated sub-states of dynamic functional connectivity more complex, and weakens the relationship between functional and anatomical connectivity.

On a regional level, LSD reduces functional connectivity of the anterior medial prefrontal cortex, specifically during states of high segregation. Time-specific effects were correlated with different aspects of subjective experiences; in particular, ego dissolution was predicted by increased small-world organization during a state of high global integration.

These results reveal a more nuanced, temporally-specific picture of altered brain connectivity and complexity under psychedelics than has previously been reported.”

“My main interest — and the focus of my research — is on understanding the neuroscience of human consciousness,” said study author Andrea I. Luppi (@loopyluppi), a Gates Scholar at the University of Cambridge in the Cognition and Consciousness Imaging Group.

“Studying psychoactive substances offers a unique opportunity for neuroscience: we can study their effects in terms of brain chemistry, but also at the level of brain function and subjective experience,” he added. “In particular, the mind is never static, and neither is the brain: we are increasingly discovering that when it comes to brain function and its evolution over time, the journey matters just as much as the destination.”

In 2016, researchers found LSD has a huge impact on intrinsic functional connectivity such as the thalamus, and also increased global integration by inflating the level of communication between normally distinct brain networks reported as “ego dissolution.”

They concluded that “LSD selectively expands global connectivity in the brain and the perceptual boundaries between the self and the environment.”

For example, a study from 2018 had shown that LSD administration significantly decreased functional connectivity within visual, sensorimotor, and auditory networks and the default mode network. Meaning users’ eyes, ears, nose, and other sensory organs did not work the same as before and they were no longer connected in the same fashion.

It is as if the act of taking LSD creates a temporary hybrid human whose bodily functions and chemicals are no longer human, but merged with the very ancient fungal pathogens to become one. As if the drug mutates, morphs, and integrates a person into itself in which the user experiences their world in the 4th dimension.

In other words, LSD alters the brain and body so that it is able to break the normal ruled of being human, while also changing how the brain is able to integrate and process consciousness.

“When you look at the network of fungi, it starts to look back at you!” – Dr. Merlin Sheldrake (Fungal Biologist and author)

The Next Plague: Doctors warn toxic molds/fungi more deadly than COVID-19

The Next Plague: Doctors warn toxic molds/fungi more deadly than COVID-19

“Killer viruses and antibiotic-resistant bacteria aren’t the only infectious threats we face – deadly fungi are coming for us too,” warns Nic Fleming

A U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) physician and an epidemiologist, Tom Chiller, has been working in the effort against COVID is warning Americans of a new potential pandemic that is said to be much worse than COVID and some states have gone on high alert, according to the Scientific American.

This new global threats are molds/fungi like Aspergillus and Candida auris which the CDC says resembles the Black Plague.

Fungal microbes that are coinfecting COVID patients and are much more deadly than the virus.

“We have an enormous blind spot,” says Arturo Casadevall, a physician and molecular microbiologist at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.

“Walk into the street and ask people what are they afraid of, and they’ll tell you they’re afraid of bacteria, they’re afraid of viruses, but they don’t fear dying of fungi.

Attempting to find solutions to this new threat, Chiller consulted with his peers in other countries where the fungus invaded their healthcare systems, causing fast-spreading outbreaks that killed up to two-thirds of the people who contracted it. The problem was that no drug and cleaning agents seemed to work at killing the fungus, and once it contaminated the hospitals and equipment, they had to rip it out and take it to the dump.

Some experts compare these fungal infections to the “creature from the black lagoon and the new Black Plague.

An epidemiologist from Imperial College, London – Johanna Rhodes, said that the fungus could survive on surfaces for long periods. “One of the things that make Candida Auris so scary is the fact it can linger on inanimate surfaces for long periods and withstand whatever you throw at it,” Rhodes said.

Rhodes was one of the scientists involved in containing a fungus outbreak in the UK in 2016. The fungus was compared to the Black Plague only after a CDC doctor found that the fungal makeup resembled substances that are found in lagoons, and other areas brimming with bacteria.

“It is a creature from the black lagoon. It bubbled up and now it is everywhere,” Dr. Tom Chiller said.

The Scientific American reports;

Accounts of infections trickled back from India, Italy, Colombia, Germany, Austria, Belgium, Ireland, the Netherlands, and France. Now the same deadly fungi were surfacing in American patients as well: the first signs of a second epidemic layered on top of the viral pandemic.

And it wasn’t just C. auris.

Another deadly fungus called Aspergillus was starting to take a toll as well.

“This is going to be widespread everywhere,” Chiller says. “We don’t think we’re going to be able to contain this.”

Warning networks that link infectious disease doctors and mycologists around the globe lit up with accounts of aspergillosis taking down patients afflicted with COVID: in China, France, Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands, Austria, Ireland, Italy, and Iran. As challenging a complication as C. auris was, Aspergillus was worse. C. auris lurks in hospitals.

The place where patients were exposed to Aspergillus was, well, everywhere. There was no way to eliminate the spores from the environment or keep people from breathing them in.

In Baltimore, physician Kieren Marr was acutely aware of the danger. Marr is a professor of medicine and oncology at Johns Hopkins Medical Center and directs its unit on transplant and oncology infectious diseases. The infections that take hold in people who have received a new organ or gotten a bone marrow transplant are familiar territory for her.

When COVID arrived, she was concerned that Aspergillus would surge—and that US hospitals, not alert to the threat, would miss it. Johns Hopkins began testing COVID patients in its ICU with the kind of molecular diagnostic tests used in Europe, trying to catch up to the infection in time to try to treat it. Across the five hospitals the Johns Hopkins system operates, it was found that one out of 10 people with severe COVID was developing aspergillosis.

Several patients died, including one whose aspergillosis went to the brain. Marr feared there were many others like that patient across the country, whose illness was not being detected in time.

“This is bad,” Marr said this spring.

“Aspergillus is more important in COVID right now than C. auris. Without a doubt.”

The CDC estimates that 300 million people are infected globally with fungal diseases and 1.6 million deaths every year—more than malaria, as many as tuberculosis. Estimates in the US are approximately 75,000 people are hospitalized annually for a fungal infection, and another 8.9 million people seek an outpatient visit, costing about $7.2 billion a year.

“The past five years really felt like we were waking up to a whole new phenomenon, a fungal world that we just weren’t used to,” Chiller says. “How do we stay on top of that? How do we question ourselves to look for what might come next?

We study these emergences not as an academic exercise but because they show us what might be coming. We need to be prepared for more surprises.”

Bowie’s Demons: I felt like I’d fallen into the bowels of the earth

Bowie’s Demons: I felt like I’d fallen into the bowels of the earth

Like most creative people of our time, David Bowie suffered from a divine madness fueled by what he called “demonic hell beasts,” who he said himself, “I felt like I’d fallen into the bowels of the earth.”

Bowie’s obsession with the occult, Gnostic doctrines, the paranormal, Aleister Crowley, Nazi’s and cocaine was more than he could handle.

The endless days of cocaine binges seemed to take the Thin White Duke to the dimension where the demons had dwelled, and it scared the holy hell out of him.

Like many occultists who had gone before, he stared too long into the darkness to the point where he was deep in the abyss, which often left him in a state of paranoid madness where he used pentagrams to protect himself against the dark spiritual forces that had followed him.

It seems Bowie’s trips to this hellish existence had reached a tipping point when he purchased a home in the city of Lost Angeles, AKA Los Angeles, that happened to be just a few doors down from where the Manson murders had taken place.

In a book by his former wife, Angela Bowie, she tells the story about a new home the couple had just purchased where Bowie’s self-help strategies were not helping. Angela says she “witnessed and shared it all―the bisexual orgies; David; decline at the hands of satanic cults and cocaine; and the lives and loves of Mick, Elton, Marianne, Iggy, Rod and Lou to name a few.”

He had claimed to be tormented by evil spirits in which an exorcism at his home and more appropriately of the Bowie’s pool was to take place. Here is an excerpt from “Bowie’s biography Backstage Passes: Life on the Wild Side With Bowie;”

“There was a beautiful Art Deco house on six acres, an exquisite site property and a terrific value at just $300,000, but he took one look at a detail I hadn’t noticed, a hexagram painted on the floor of a circular room by the previous owner, Gypsy Rose Lee.

“A great deal of codling and reassurance got us through that crisis, and I went and found the Doheny Drive house. Built in the late fifties or early sixties, it was a white cube surrounding an indoor swimming pool. David like the place, but I thought it was too small to meet our needs for very long, and I wasn’t crazy about the pool. In my experience, indoor pools are always a problem.

“This one was no exception, albeit not in any of the usual ways. Its drawback was one I hadn’t encountered before and haven’t seen or heard of since: Satan lived in it. With his own eyes, David said, he’d seen HIM rising up out of the water one night.”

Feeling demonic forces moving in, David felt strongly that he needed an exorcism and asked that his new found friend white witch Walli Elmlark be called upon to lend her assistance to remove the evil from his surroundings.

“A Greek Orthodox Church, in LA would have done it for us (there was a priest available for such a service, the people had told me) but David wouldn’t have it. No strangers allowed, he said. So there we stood, with just Walli’s instructions and a few hundred dollars’ worth of books, talismans, and assorted items from Hollywood’s comprehensive selection of fine occult emporia.

“There he (David Bowie) was, then, primed and ready. The proper books and doodads were arranged on a big old-fashioned lectern. The incantation began, and although I had no idea what was being said or what language it was being said in, I couldn’t stop a weird cold feeling rising up in me as David droned on and on.

“There’s no easy or elegant way to say this, so I’ll just say it straight. At a certain point in the ritual, the pool began to bubble. It bubbled vigorously (perhaps “thrashed” is a better term) in a manner inconsistent with any explanation involving air filters or the like.”

The rock and roll couple watched in amazement. Angie says she tried to be flippant – “‘ Well, dear, aren’t you clever? It seems to be working. Something’s making a move, don’t you think?’ – but I couldn’t keep it up. It was very, very strange; even after my recent experiences I was having trouble accepting what my eyes were seeing.”

Angie insists that she would peak through the glass doors leading to the pool every so often and was dumb founded by what she saw. “On the bottom of the pool was a large shadow, or stain, which had not been there before the ritual began. It was in the shape of a beast of the underworld; it reminded me of those twisted, tormented gargoyles screaming silently from the spires of medieval cathedrals. It was ugly, shocking, malevolent; it frightened me.

“I backed away from it feeling very strange, went through the doorway, and told David what I’d seen, trying to be nonchalant but not doing very well. He turned white but eventually became revived enough to spend the rest of the night doing coke. He wouldn’t go near the pool, though.

“I still don’t know what to think about that night. It runs directly counter to my pragmatism and my everyday faith in the integrity of the “normal” world, and it confuses me greatly. What troubles me the most is that if you were to call that stain the mark of Satan, I don’t see how I could argue with you.”

“David, of course, insisted that we move from the house as quickly as possible, and we did that, but I’ve heard from reliable sources (Michael Lipman for one, the property’s real estate agent) that subsequent tenants haven’t been able to remove the shadow. Even though the pool has been painted over a number of times, the shadow has always come back.”

METH Demons: Mother Guilty of Murdering Her Own Child Who Saw Monsters and Demons

METH Demons: Mother Guilty of Murdering Her Own Child Who Saw Monsters and Demons

A Colorado mother pleaded guilty this week to the murder of her 5-year old daughter, who saw monsters and demons after accidentally drinking water from a glass bong used to smoke methamphetamine.

Stephanie Alvarado, 27, was convicted of second-degree murder of her daughter Sophia Larson, who was left “seeing monsters and demons” after drinking from her mother’s water pipe in December last year.

What interests me about this particular case is the fact that a 5-year-old child who has never used drugs ingests methamphetamine and then immediately starts seeing monsters and demons just like hardcore METH addicts claim to see when they commit crimes such as assault and murder. It is as if the METH acts as a conduit or a channel to this spiritual world that when one consumes this drug, they can then tune into it and see things that other people cannot or they are just hallucinations, but why would a 5-year-old child make such claims?

Alvarado had smoked METH two of her cousins when the child drank water from a bong and was seeing demons, but she refused to get her daughter medical because she could lose custody, according to the police report.

Her two cousins, Daniel Alvarado and Bertha Ceballos-Roma, were also charged with the crime. Daniel is awaiting sentencing, and Bertha was deported to Mexico.

Apparently, the METH Demon, Alvarado, has a history of uncontrollable rage, which is very common with METH addicts. She is also facing an additional six years in prison for a domestic abuse charge for attacking the father of the dead child, who happened to be her ex, just hours before her first court appearance over poor Sofia’s death.

Alvarado faces a potential of 54 years for her crimes.

Little Sophia’s dad, Alec Larson, said his ex had been a good mother until she got hooked on drugs, which he blamed for their breakup.

“I didn’t think we were going to bury my daughter. I thought we were going to bury her mom and it just took a turn for the worst,” he told Fox 31.

Subject: Child death investigation involving five year old female on December 11, 2019.
Identity of Deceased: Sophia Larson, 5-years old, resident of Garfield County, CO.

On December 11, 2019 at approximately 3:44am the Garfield County Coroner’s Office was dispatched to Grand River Hospital in Rifle, CO for a death investigation involving a five year old girl. The subsequent law enforcement and coroner’s office investigation suggested that the child may have ingested methamphetamine.

An autopsy was completed the same day by the coroner’s office contract forensic athologist. In January 2020, toxicology results were completed and showed that the decedent had a very high level of methamphetamine in her system. The forensic pathologist determined the cause of death to be “methamphetamine intoxication.” The manner of death is certified as “accident.”

In determining the manner of death, The Garfield County Coroner’s Office adheres to the principles in the NAME (National Association of Medical Examiners) “A guide For Manner of Death Classification.”1 The manner of death is a medical classification for statistical purposes and the manner of death certification has no bearing on criminal justice proceedings, or if law enforcement or prosecutor should or should not charge a person for a violation of criminal statute.

Meth Demons: 19 Year Old Man Stabs Family Member Tormented by a Demon

Meth Demons: 19 Year Old Man Stabs Family Member Tormented by a Demon

A common spiritual theme that you will find amongst hardcore methamphetamine (METH) addicts are their claims of seeing and conversing with demons. Especially when it involves criminal acts such as a physical assault and, more often than not, murder, which is typically carried out on a family member living in the same home as the METH addict.

There isn’t a week that goes by where somewhere in the U.S., there are news reports of a brutal assault and or murder carried out by someone high on methamphetamine who reports seeing demons.

My articles, videos for a new-media series for my Cult of Demons Podcast will document these crimes by people who I have dubbed, “METH Demons,” and the psychospiritual disease they suffer from.

For example, in early January, Channel 7 News in Lake Charles, Louisianna reported that local Sheriff’s deputies discovered Patrick T. Amos, 19, covered in blood.


The suspect told deputies he had been doing meth throughout the night and that he was being tormented by a demon inside a family member, according to Kayla Vincent, spokeswoman for the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office.

According to 7 News;  “Vincent said deputies were dispatched to the 2200 block of Hodges Street after receiving a call from a person who said a man she did not know had contacted her on social media saying he had just attempted to kill someone and needed a ride. The man gave her his location, which she gave to authorities.

When they arrived, deputies found the suspect,

When deputies arrived at that location, they found the victim covered in blood and suffering from numerous lacerations to her arms, legs, and head, Vincent said. She was transported to a local hospital and is listed in stable condition

Amos told deputies that he had been on meth throughout the night, Vincent said. He also told deputies he was being tormented by a demon inside the family member, which he attempted to kill with a large knife.

Amos was booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center for attempted second-degree murder. Judge Derrick Kee set bond at $175,000.”
