Having both abused DXM recreationally and being long time meditator, I believe it would be impossible to attain any meaningful state of right-Samadhi while under the influence of DXM. Being dissociated from the body is exactly the opposite of what Jhana is. I believe it likely that you are mistaking pleasant, drug induced states for Jhana... drug induced states of concentration can be powerful and profound, but be clear... they are not right-Samadhi. The only way for you to know for SURE is to maintain Jhana without drugs and compare the two states.
You are losing the practical reality thinking about theory. Been disociated from the body makes the body pain, the senses etc. that can distract you dissapear. It is the same as an isolation chamber. Can you say that because meditation in an isolation chamber is more powerfull it is not right meditation ? The term "drug" scares people more than isolation chamber.
The most important point is I AM NOT MISTAKEN JHANA FOR A NORMAL EFFECT OF THE DRUG. That is why I posted this. When I tried to do this experiment 2 years ago and posted on this forum what happened I concluded that I improved the effect of the drug but achieved nothing in meditating and that most of the time it was imposible to meditate on it. (the topic was deleted) On this drug it is known that 90% of the thing is what you do after it, the same as in this experiment. You have to figure out how to do it, figure out the dosage you can;t just take it and boom.
The steps I am experiencing while entering jhana on this drug are identical to what I experience when sober and to what I read should happen. As a matter of fact I entered second jhana and did now know it for 2 times and then after reading how to do it so that I could get there I found out it was the second and payed more atention and it was exaclty what was supposed to happen (in one of the 2 sources, as I said the information is contradicting on the net). I am reffering to dropping vitaka and vicara, droping the voluntary atention and effort to the pleasantnes of the pleasant sensation, not changing your focus to emotional pleasure. There is no emotional pleasure to be found to change to it. Belive me it is not some effect of the drug improved by this, actually the effects of the drug are non existant at all the day when you do this, only a little dissociation while not meditating and probably serotonine levels increased but nothing more than that. When meditating on it the meditation is as clear and how-it-is-suposed-to-be as it gets, there is no side effect of the drug bothering you. THIS IS SOMETHING REMARKABLE AND THAT IS WHY I POSTED THIS.
The reason why I posted this in the first place is actually because the information should be somewhere. I see in all documentaries how big stuff is discovered from unexpected places and how big stuff is not discovered because of information not been shared etc. There is probably more bad than good in posting this but that;s why I did it. If it is 0,01% chance of something been discovered because of this I had to post it.
Anyway, I am gona e-mail this to the guy that made the "DMT - the spirit molecule" because he seems to do research like this. THIS DESERVES A COUPLE OF BRAIN SCANS AT LEAST. There is 0,01% chance of hearing the classic documentary beggining line "so I heard about this and took 16 student volunteers, stoned them up and bingo" lol
I also believe that out of all the drugs I used as a teenager, DXM was the most damaging. so be forewarned.
In what aspect ? I am afraid of lowering your brain capacities in some way and doing it slowly so that you do not notice. I would apreciate an honest and argumented opinion.
