I find it interesting that jaguars are just about the most commonly encountered entities in DMT trips and that there have been numerous reports of feral jaguars or panthers around outer Sydney. The Sydney jaguar issue has long been considered a myth but more evidence is mounting that there may be some kind of large black feral feline in the Hawkesbury area. Sydney is centred on a large basin of sandstone (and quartz), considered by some to be characteristics of places with high levels of “hallucinations”, “visions”, “UFO sightings” or whatever. Australia is also one of the richest places in the world for DMT concentrations in plants, together with naturally occurring MAOIs which allow human oral ingestion of DMT to be psychoactive: the foundation of Aboriginal Dreamtime theology. (A side note: Aborigines used to use DMT to stun - but not kill - fish in rivers in order to catch them easily; the fish have no MAOs to inhibit psychoactivity).
