  1. Part one; Interesting.
    Part two; So now it’s a documentary about Ancient Egyptians?
    Part three; Part one again?
    Stopped watching.

  2. Did anybody else notice that part 1 is the same as part 3….All in all i rate this documentary 1 out of 10, because i feel sorry for the creator

  3. This is not the real DMT documentary. This seems to be some sort of older documentary on the pharaohs of Egypt.

    The real one is to be released Late Summer 2010 and is much more contemporary and focused on the actual experience.

  4. Not the scientific inquiry it sounds like. The research on DMT (if there is any) is not given and instead there’s focus on why the Egyptians and the book of the dead had the answers. Manna for those who already believe in an afterlife but the veneer of pseudo science isn’t a substitute for some facts.

    • I am pretty certain that this is not the actual film but just some clips of interviews from the film mixed in with some other footage thrown together haphazardly.
