In case you didn’t know already, the pineal gland is oftentimes believed to be the mysterious third eye that ancient religious texts speak of. Mainly used to produce serotonin derivative melatonin which in turn balances out our hormone, experts are sure that this is the secret behind reaching mental enlightenment.
Every ancient text that speaks about the third eye speaks of how far it can get us as a species. Once a human has opened their third eye, he or she is no longer human, but something beyond.
Religious monks spend their whole lives attempting to open it up, and despite the fact that they are the closest to it they still seem to lack that certain something that’ll get them the final step of the way there.
You can find the pineal gland in between your two hemispheres. It is referred to as the pineal gland because it looks like a pine cone, but because of how similar it is to the third eye many believe that it is the secret behind the universe as we know it.
The Soviet Union attempted many times in the past to forcefully open their third eye but to no avail.
Descartes on the other hand is sure that through the pineal gland we’ll uncover the “seat of the soul” and find our way to reaching the highest spiritual point of our lives through it
