“My first time taking DMT gave me a new perspective on life.

I felt like I had all the answers, that there was nothing to stress about.

That there was no death, no end and no beginning, that life is just a game that we’re all playing.”

Dorian Yates continued in his caption discussing how this experience changed his views on life and what he saw during this time.

“No need to take it so seriously.

I was able to see through the machine of reality.

It’s like seeing through a computer’s code and you see all these numbers.

I saw numbers and geometric shapes, like I was seeing the construct of what’s behind our reality.

Psychedelics can be powerful, life changing medicines but of course, must be taken under supervision.”
