So first let me say I always thought "those guys must be trolls.". After a while I found out some people really believe it and I though "those must be crazy". After a while however I found my self looking up stuff of NASA, and how much they fake. Basically all Pictures we have on earth is a composit, made with a fisheyelense or simply photoshopped. they even admit it.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4p_0bnICtDc Check 4:25, or watch the whole thing. NO picture of the earth from space is a simple picture, and if you cut it into little parts and reassamble it you can give it any form you want.
The thing with stuff dissappearing behind the horizon also didnt proof to be accurate, and you can see occasionally stuff that is far too far away in order to be seen with a round earth because it should have been behind the horizon aleady
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9uersWDp-3c 9:30the stuff about the laser experiment starts
"But what about the curvature of high altitude footage?" you mean like this?
where the curvature of the earth changes while the camera moves and even shows the opposite of the supposed curvature? obviosly a fisheyelense
But then there are those videos
those seem to be not made with a fisheye lense.
why do the sunrays seem to have different directions in pic related, even though the sun is so far away all the rays should get to earth in a parallel line
why are there hotspots visible on clouds like in
even though the sun should hit the clouds with the same angle (the curvature of the earth shouldnt nearly be high enough in order to get that effect through that on such a little are
Help me! Seriously! I always liked space, imagined humanity settling in other solarsystems but it seem wes cant do that.
DMT and Psilocybin

What is /x/'s opinion on DMT, ayahuasca, psilocybin and the associated entity contact experience that persists through these compounds?
General info : DMT is a natural neurotransmitter that is produced in very low amounts by the human brain. Psilocybin is very similar to DMT in it's molecular structure, but the difference is usually that entity contact while under psilocybin is usually in the form of a 'voice'. Amazonian shamans that use ayahuasca (which contains DMT) have mythologies that speak of a 'spirit world' that is able to be accessed by the human mind through ingestion of the vine. In this realm, shamans can make contacts with spirits and also fight 'bad' spirits. Ancient traditions that do not use ayahuasca but rather psilocybin (magic mushrooms) often have a similar mythology but instead of 'spirits' they talk of 'faeries'.
The motifs of these mythologies are echoed in our modern society with accounts of alien abduction. Notable to shamanic traditions is the process of being 'operated' on by the spirits, having their body structured altered in some way to easier facilitate travel into these realms. These traditions also speak of 'crystal implants'. The faery traditions also contain paralells to the UFO abduction phenomenon in that the faeries are in the business of 'abducting' people and creating hybrid beings with them. Missing time is also a feature of the faery lore. Shamanic lore also speak of 'spirit lovers'.
An interesting study conducted by Dr Rick Strassman features controlled study of the effects of DMT, the results spooked Dr Strassman to no end because of the frequency of 'entity contact' reported by the subjects.
The UFO is also present in the shamanic lore as a means of travelling between these realms. This may be echoed in the faery lore by what is known as 'faery rings', where they would dance in a circle with incredible speed until they dissappear into the faery world.

Weird Lucid Dream
3 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
Maybe you guys can help me figured this out.
I've had messed up sleeping schedules lately. For some reason I got home everyday after work really tired, and even if it's 7 pm, I would take a "nap" and woke up at 9 or 10 or something and fuck around for a bit before going back to bed at like 1 or 2 am. Maybe that's the root of my problem, but I don't know. Two days ago I have this particularly... interesting dream.
So a bit of context, I moved to a new city this year and have tried really hard to make it. Been switching jobs, no real friends or connections, no constant in my life basically. So I'm by myself a lot. I also have a very active sexual imaginations. I crave intimacy, but I have none (assuming like most of neckbeards around here). Ever since I was a child, I have resigned myself and find comfort in my side-pillow. That's the only real source of intimacy I have. All this may or may not be related to my dream, but I understand that in most dreams interpretation context is important, so there it is.
So in this dream that I had, I sat in a dark room. A seat like you would normally find at a strip club. Except that I am sitting in the vestibule of the club. It's very small, only enough for one seat. Behind me is the exit and in front of me is the door to the club. It's very dark and lonely and the only sound I heard are mufflings of things from the other side of the door. I sat there for the longest time before decided to leave. I went outside and for some reason I convinced myself I'm in Las Vegas. This is when I began to became conscious I'm in a dream.

>totally non-religious, vaguely open to spiritual ideas
>one day have an imaginary figure come to me out of the blue
>fairly vague at first, nothing special
>details gradually appear over a period of time, a bit like how authors talk about their characters sometimes coming to them
>then weird shit happens
>start having the feeling of weird thoughts I can't make out
>feels like trying to remember a dream or seeing something out of the corner of your eye, or like having a tiny moment of clarity and then immediately forgetting your thoughts
>keeps happening, hearing a foreign language, but can't make it out
>have dream where words I can make out come to me, I learn the name of this person and hear some other words
>look them up
>it's fucking Sumerian
>somehow correctly identify name and details of a Mesopotamian goddess I've never heard of
>never heard any Sumerian in my life
>never read any Sumerian mythology
>no family history of schizophrenia
>start to wonder if I just connected with a legit god
What do /x/? Has anyone ever had anything like this happen to them? I would've called bs on this story if I heard it but I have no rational explanation myself
