BaltoAs far as gaining something from the experience, I'm not quite sure. It is way too much to take in in such a short amount of time, if anything it helped explain the connections between everything I experience with good lsd but at the same time makes the whole thing vastly more complicated, like there is another side to the mirror we can't see that is powering everything in the universe if that makes any sense ha.
Posting froma throwaway for obvious reasons anyways:
Personally DMT allowed me to experience and understand how certain actions in my life contributed to certain decisions made by others. It left me realizing I needed to change aspects of my personality that were leading me to becoming a douche to the people I care most about. DMT is very much an experience, if you go into a trip saying "Hey I want deep insight into my life" you may or may not get answers, on LSD or Shrooms if you seriously want to pick your life apart take a couple of tabs and generally the drug will do it for you.
DMT will let you experience things that are impossible to describe in the human language, so I'm not going to try. I've died on DMT, I've talked to entities, I've become a Fibonacci sequence and rode down a recursive spiral to infinity, and I've lived multiple infinite lives in multiple infinite dimensions all at once. There can be alot of connections made within a trip about the nature of how things are the way they are but it's hard to describe even to yourself. Generally after a trip all you can say is "Wow" and it's hard to come back and say "Well I finally figured out that XYZ cause X in the world." Whereas I think on LSD or Shrooms you could have to time to figure out what exactly these thoughts are.
The above paragraphs sound really tripped out and hippyish but it's very much the only way to describe these experiences. I'm a normal kid doing good in school, people who don't know me can't tell I've had these experiences, nor would I want them to. Overall yes you can get insights or no you might not, either way if DMT is something you want to experience I think generally you'll come out a more positive person.
