Artist Shawn Thornton developed cancer of the pineal gland (he’s OK now)—and painted an incredible series of psychedelic landscapes. Was his brain over-producing DMT?
Shawn Thornton developed cancer in his pineal gland while attending art school. As his cancer progressed, he created a series of paintings documenting what he saw, that become increasingly complex, occult and beautiful over the course of about six years. (Luckily, he was operated on and healed.)
The pineal gland has long been thought to be the seat of consciousness, and tied to both mystic practices and the psychedelic effects of high-potency drugs like DMT. Thornton’s paintings, which look very much like DMT trips, seem to lend credence to this theory. Dr. Rick Strassman, who conducted serious experiments on DMT and the pineal gland in the 1980s, has long thought this to be the case, and Shawn Thornton’s experiences definitely point to a connection.
