Had a flash of insight related to something that nrgiseternal wrote in another thread >>18940252
I had asked how one unlocks the higher circuits of the brain, as described in Prometheus Rising.
The response was:
>Breathe in much harder than feels natural and exhale for twice as long as it took you to breathe in.
>Do this every day until you hear feel or both a pop in the center of your head.
Spiritualists place a lot of importance upon the pineal gland and argue that it releases DMT, although I don't think this has ever been proven. The pineal gland, they tell us, is the third eye. Descartes called it the principal seat of the soul. There is also evidence that ancient cultures were aware of the pineal gland and assigned significance to it.
Although pineal gland decalcification is a meme, the truth is that the pineal gland does actually calcify.
When we hyperventilate, the blood pH goes up. The technical term for this is respiratory alkalosis--the blood becoming alkaline. How does one decalcify, e.g., a coffee machine? Well, most descaling fluids are actually mild acids, but alkaline descaling fluids exist as well. (Incidentally, blood is naturally slightly basic, and lower blood pH is associated with inflammation).
And so what that anon wrote makes total sense now. It also explains why Wim Hof claims that he can produce DMT from his style of breathing.
