Dimeththyltryptamine (DMT) & Halacha I'm assuming most of you don't know too much about Dimeththyltryptamine, better known as DMT, but I'm hoping their are some people who are familiar and might be able to add their opinions on the matter.
To cut straight to the point, I was considering going on a vacation to Australia where they have licensed regulated clinics where one can have a DMT experience.
Is their ANY reason to think that this can possibly be problematic according to halacha?
From what I understand their are tribes that use DMT in their rituals but I don't see why that would make it assur being that this would not involve any religious ritual and would be conducted in a private clinic, so if certain religious groups used alcohol I find it hard to believe that it would render alcohol assur to use...
Anyone hear anything specific in regards to this subject?

(P.s. The DMT expierance is a purely spiritual one, and in today's day and age with almost complete hester panim, that even a "Dybbuk" was known to be a normal occurrence is no longer happening, it is as if hashem specifically does not want any supernatural phenomenon to be occurring as to amplify the hastaras panim of our generation, so for me to expierance an out of body feeling is something I am fascinated by and would love to do if it was not halachicaly problematic)

Re: Moving Violation Tickets
Coming into court and saying that alone may not work, but it would definitely help you poke some holes in the officers story. For example you can ask the officer how long he saw you holding your phone and if all the evidence points to your story adding up you can win. You can also request the officers dash cam footage to bolster your claim.
So can you clarify the following, I am no legal scholar, but just from a logical standpoint, if what you`re saying is correct, then it turns out there are legal uses of a cellphone while driving and illegal uses of a cellphone, if so, it should not be enough for an officer to give you a ticket merely by observing you holding the device, rather he would have to give you a ticket claiming you were specifically engaging in an illegal use of the cellphone. As an example, a cop cannot give you a summons for smoking marijuana merely by observing you smoke a cigarette and then make you have to prove it was just tobacco, rather the summons is only given when the cop is stating that he specifically observed you smoking marijuana.
Does this argument not seem valid, if indeed you are allowed to use your cellphone for certain things?

No sign of a golem was found when an Israeli film crew entered the attic of the Altneuschul in 2014.
Are you aware that the whole golem association thing with the shul and the Maharal are just a myth? Created by some jewish and non jewish fiction writers of his time?
Not sure how into this topic you are, but if you want to read up on all the details of historical figures that were involved in the process of making a golem, and the multiple diff methods known involved in the process, what the safer yetzirah says about it, chacham tzvi, vilna gaon, shla"h, Rokeach aka R' Elazar m'vermeiza...the chasidei ashkenaz were well versed in this subject and in kabbala maasis in general, for an amazing book on this topic, see Moshe Idel's book "golem"...you won't regret it.
