DMT – DMT is a psychedelic. It is produced in our bodies and some plants in nature. People that have taken DMT speak about visiting heaven and alien planets amongst other tales. For the best introduction to DMT you should read Rick D. Strassman’s excellent book DMT – The Spirit Molecule. It won’t include anything about the relationship between Phi and DMT, as I made that up, but some of of the other stuff should hold up.
MKULTRA – MKULTRA was indeed a secret CIA department that operated from 1953 to 1973. At its peak it had enormous resources at its disposal. But as far as we know MKULTRA never succeeded with any of their fringe studies into telekinesis etc.
THE BRAIN AND ITS CAPABILLITIES – The brain is still an enigma in science, although a lot of resources are now being spent to better understand this fascinating machinery that sits on top of our heads. For a better understanding of the brain and its potential I recommend reading Michio Kaku’s The Future of the Mind, which gave me a lot of inspiration and ideas when writing this book.
THE CONNECTICUT PRISON STUDY – Although made up a very similar study was actually conducted – the Concord Prison Experiment. You can read more about it here.
So what is actually fact and what is fiction? I have tried, to the best of my ability, to use historical facts and knowledge. So when I write about ‘Venus’ second passing of the sun’ or ‘the Cu Chi tunnels in Vietnam’ then these are actual events and places. But I have of course made up the storyline of the book. All my characters are made up and I do not condone the use of psychedelics.

Doing some field research in the Cu Chi tunnels in Vietnam. (And yes, they are tiny and claustrophobic!)
