The Kogi and Dark Technology

If you have seen the Kogi documentaries (1, 2) or have seen Undone on Amazon Prime, you probably know that the Kogi tribe has a tradition of selecting their shamans carefully before they are born, and then bringing them up by keeping them in completely darkness, to be visites only by their mother, until age nine.


Yet none of these references tell WHY they would do this. This page begins the explanation – in the dark, the pineal gland (the “Third Eye”) ceases to emit melatonin and switches to the production of DMT, a powerful neurochemical which induces psychic abilities.
