The chemical N-Dimethyltryptamine (DMT) is a naturally occurring tryptamine similar to LSD or psilocybin. When ingested or otherwise consumed by a human, DMT causes intense and overwhelmingly spiritual hallucinations. Many studies report the experience of leaving the physical body and interacting with beings identified as deities. These experiences are often interpreted as life-changing and deeply meaningful. Though other psychedelic compounds may create similar subjective experiences, DMT is a candidate for a biological mechanism of spirituality because it is produced within the human body (Riba, 2003).

One study used mass spectrometry to measure levels of N-DMT in human cerebrospinal fluid (Shen, Jiang, & Yu, 2009). These levels varied greatly between individuals, from 10,000 ng/L to 100,000 ng/L. This evidence suggests that psychoactive levels of DMT may be present within the human body at times (Shen et. al., 2009). While the metabolic source of DMT is unknown, many researchers point to a section of the brain implicitly connected with sleep.
