Description


Matt Bialer's mind-expanding epic poem "Third Eye of the Inner Light" is an absolute must-have for every self-respecting psychonaut.

Seb Doubinsky (author of The Song of Synth and Missing Signal)

Famous for his long poems exploring the paranormal, the weird, the unexplained and what makes us human, Matt Bialer turns his poetic talents to the cutting edge and controversial realm of psychedelic drugs. Dr. Robert Strand of the University of New Mexico School of Medicine in Albuquerque has spent 25 years researching the effects of psychedelic and hallucinogenic drugs on humans. Of interest to him are the effects of N, N-dimethyltryptamine or DMT or The Spirit Molecule. When injected with this powerful drug volunteers find themselves in other realms that to them feel realer than real. Most fascinating of all is that many of the volunteers share similar experiences. They encounter Breakthrough, beyond life and death and space and time. They see folding rooms, fractals, extreme geometric explosions of color; they meet many of the same 'beings' such as self-transforming elf machines, Stick Men, Hyper Space Jesters, clowns, self-dribbling basketballs. Are these people dreaming? Are they hallucinating or experiencing some form of the collective unconscious? Or are they being transported to other realms or dimensions? Dr. Strand believes the drug effects the thalamus which acts as a filter for our sensory perception. As he asks more questions he feels he has discovered something profound, and fears that there are forces in play that are conspiring to bring an end to his study.

Matt Bialer is the author of many books of poetry including Radius and Wing of Light (Les Editions du Zaporogue), Already Here, Ark and Black Powder, (Black Coffee Press), Bridge, Frequencies and The Valley of the Eight (Leaky Boot Press), Tell Them What I Saw (PS Publishing), He Walks On All Fours and Kings of Men (Dynatox Ministries), Formation (Weirdo Magnet) and Ascent (Bizarro Pulp Press). His poems have appeared in print and online journals including Le Zaporogue, Green Mountains Review, Gobbet, Forklift Ohio and H_NGM_N. He is an acclaimed black and white street photographer and watercolorist who has exhibited widely. Matt lives with his wife and daughter in Park Slope, Brooklyn.
