The pineal gland. Secrets of the "third eye"
The pineal gland, otherwise called the epiphysis, is the upper appendage of the brain, located in its very center (directly related to the intermediate brain). Its functions have not yet been fully studied; it is known that it is necessary for the maintenance of various life processes.
The pineal gland: the main functions
Thorough studies of the pineal gland began only in the sixties of the twentieth century. It was found that it produces two hormones: serotonin (day), which stimulates activity and emotional tone, and melatonin (at night), which has a calming effect on the body. Among other things, melatonin contributes to the extension of the reproductive function, and if the reproductive period increases, then the life span is also extended. Numerous experiments conducted on mice and monkeys, confirmed that melatonin can slow down the aging process in the body.
The pineal gland: activation of the "third eye"
Nowadays, many scientists are not talking about the physiological meaning of the pineal gland, but about the fact that it is a link between two worlds: the spiritual and the physical. The pineal gland, in their opinion, is the “third eye”, giving extrasensory abilities. The merit of such a function is the mineral bodies contained in the epiphysis (the so-called brain sand), consisting of a colloid impregnated with salts of magnesium and calcium. Researchers believe that these "grains of sand" can receive non-electromagnetic radiation. It was hypothesized that the matter of the brain itself is not capable of thinking, for this we need an external source, which is the cosmic radiation, caught by the epiphysis. The images that the pineal gland receives from above pass through various brain structures, and then transmitted through the optic nerves to the retina of the eye. Such an image has nothing to do with what we see in front of us really. On the contrary, you should close your eyes to fix the resulting image. Activation of the pineal gland leads to illumination, an “outbreak” that helps to reveal the secrets of the universe.Sometimes the condition may be accompanied by trance or a change in consciousness.
Parietal organ of vision
Many people think that the “third eye” is on the forehead. In fact, if it is, then only on the crown. Everyone knows that newborns have a soft parietal area, since the bones of the skull have not yet grown together in this place. However, it was found that in adults, bone thinning on the head may also occur as a result of constant meditations. It is believed that the structure of the brain is changing to facilitate the penetration of cosmic energy. You can see that the Buddha is often depicted with a bump covered with hair on his head. Allegedly, due to meditation, the brain rises and rises above the topic. The more concentrated a person thinks, the more intense his thinking, the bigger the bump. It is possible that the pineal gland takes its name from such postulates. The facts show that already in ancient times people were aware of the epiphysis and its amazing properties.
