Our brains are of incredible complexity. I think we have only scratched the surface in understanding how this organ of our body functions. Near the center lies one of the most intriguing components of our brains: the pineal gland. Below is a link to an article on this subject as well as the article itself. Read it, and you may find out some rather suprising things about yourself.

The Journeying Consciousness and it’s association with the Pineal Gland


The Pineal Gland is situated at the Centre of the Brain and requires it is name from the Pine Cone which it resembles in appearance. It is of a Crystalline structure.


The Pineal Gland itself has lengthy had associations with Spirituality. One particular of the much more popular examples staying the Bronze Statue of a Pine Cone in the Vatican.In the courtyard of Pigna close to the Vatican Museum, created by Bramante, a enormous pine cone, which was once element of a fountain, and a giant head of Octavia (Roman matron, sister of Emperor Augustus and wife of Marc Antony).


The giant pine cone represents the Pineal Gland, it is a remnant of the Old (Constantinian) St. Peter’s Basilica. The pine cone can be found in practically every religion, there is also a pine cone on the Pope’s Staff.


Far more Commonly The Pineal Gland is becoming linked with the Third Eye.


It is now staying advised in some properly respected quarters that the Pineal Gland/Third Eye is a Doorway to other realities.


The most frequent access we have to these other realities are in the kind of our Dreams.The Environments in Dreams appear so real simply because our consciousness is away from our sleeping physical bodies and truly in these Dream Environments.At that time. The Dream Atmosphere is in which our Awareness is placed. Further, that by making use of the Portal in the Pineal Gland/Third Eye Time and Area can quickly be traversed. This is born out by the fact that most Dreams final 20 minutes and however can seem shorter or longer to the dreamer.


When making use of the pineal portal,the physical physique remains at rest, although consciousness in an awakened state appears free to leave the physique. The dream being the most broadly experienced type of Out of Physique expertise.


In darkness. The Pineal Gland will make Melatonin a sleep Hormone. It also generates a variant of Melatonin that incorporates two methyl molecules. This Melatonin variant does not induce sleep, it encourages the upkeep of awareness whilst asleep.


It may possibly be beneficial right here to mention some of the scientifically observed materials.


DMT is the quick title for a synthetically made chemical DiMethyl Tryptamine. It is illegal.  Nonetheless our bodies do produce tiny amounts of DMT naturally often referred to as Metatonin..Yet another neurochemical closely related to Metatonin and Melatonin is Serotonin. These 3 neurochemicals(Transmitters) belong to a family of chemical compounds that are formed from a main molecule of the amino acid called Tryptophan.


In order to realize the function of the Pineal/Third Eye chemical, metatonin, it may possibly support to have a fundamental understanding of all 3 trypyamines. Serotonin, melatonin and metatonin. These manage states of consciousness.


Serotonin functions mainly in the course of waking hours. It is linked with happiness and contentment, Just lately, Chocolate was shown to stimulate Serotonin release, Proving what several of us knew all along. Chocolate tends to make you feel excellent.


Melatonin production requires location in response to darkness, It encourages sleep to take place .. Numerous Well being Food shops sell Melatonin capsules to assist insomniacs For the duration of Sleep our Bodily Functions of repair are increased.Melatonin quietens the consciousness inside of the physical physique so that the repair and regeneration can be focused upon without having the distractions of the waking thoughts.

I had read some of Dr. Strassman's earlier studies about DMT, and it does seem to be a valid avenue of research.


I think a safer stimulant for the brain is selenium, found in seafood and Brazil nuts. Selenium also has been praised for possibly fighting cancer, heart disease and arthiritis.

Are they gone yet? You know, the ones who automatically assume that you must have dropped acid if you display the slightest interest in the chemistry of the brain.


So, what brave new world is it that we are entering?


Safe stimulants. Yes, maybe that is the ticket. Ingesting yourself with copius amounts of undiluted DMT would seem to be a rather unforgiving way to commit suicide. Seafood and brazil nuts is probably much safer. If it can fight cancer, so much the better

So what about this DMT?


What did this mysterious Strassman fellow discover about it, or more to the point, thinks he discovered. From the book Esalen:


"Strassman willingly shut down his own research program in 1995, partly because his volunteers were routinely encountering insect-like or elfin "aliens," some of whom were devouring, probing, sexually, or even occasionally raping them. Strassman became convinced that these were not simple projections (in McKenna's phrase, we might say that they were "true hallucinations"). Strassman speculates that DMT acts as a kind of "reality barometer," or, to use another metaphor, that the spirit molecule is somehow able to change channels on the television set of the brain, thus giving us almost immediate access to parallel universes and the dark matter that surrounds us at all times. In other words, he had arrived at a transmission theory of consciousness....To his own astonishment, Strassman had to conclude that this dark parallel universe may in fact be inhabited, and that his own university research might have been giving these beings an entry point into the imaginal worlds of his subjects. He ended his own five-year, government-approved research on a decidely metaphysical note."


Ok, you braniacs out there. What say ye. Personally, I think that this DMT must do something fairly uniform to the brain, and that reaching for "dark parallel universe" explanations outside of the brain is a fools errand. However, I did not conduct the research, and do not understand enough about dark matter to be certain of my conclusion. Provisionally, I am from the "brain is the seat of consciousness" school of thought.


Still, I have to admit that this hypothesis of Strassman certainly leaves me a bit speachless...as in, wow...just wow.

This sounds like that 1986 Jeffrey Combs movie From Beyond.  Based on an old Lovecraft story.  Mildly entertaining FICTIONAL movie. 


No response must mean you all agree.

One of the things this points to is how subjective truth is. Language an confuse the issue. Language can be true at two different levels.


1) Metaphorical.


2) Literal.


What may not be literally true, may have value in pointing to the truth through metaphor. What may be metaphorically confusing, may point to some literal truth. Disentangling all of this confusion is no easy matter.

I just read the other day that Cleopatra allegedly wore a magnet as an amulet, on her forehead, so it would help her stay young.  It was supposedly because the pineal gland near there is involved with anti-aging antioxidants.
