The Meaning of the Pineal Gland

The pineal gland, a pine-cone shaped gland of the endocrine system, is a highly essential part of the brain necessary to our survival. It is often associated with the third eye or the Ajna chakra, when activated, leads one to higher realms of consciousness. The third eye gives us perception of the universe around us through the five senses. Through our five senses we have self awareness and intelligence: sentience.

As a chakra, the third eye, the pineal gland represents the point at which the body receives energy from the universe that keeps our lives sustained; the main access point between the astral body and the physical body. Its function in the brain is essential to our very consciousness. Without awareness of the universe, you have no point of reference at which you have self awareness. Without self awareness, you have neither consciousness nor logical thought.

We use our perception, our consciousness and our senses to gain awareness of energy in our world via information around us. Without the pineal gland there would be no senses, meaning we would have no way to locate food, mates, safety, warmth, and the many necessities of every day life in both man kind and the animal kingdom.

The pineal gland contains pigment similar to that found in the eyes and is connected to the optic thalami, hence it controls the action of light upon our body.The pineal gland is located beneath the cerebral cortex where the two thalamic hemispheres of the brain join, where the brain regulates consciousness, interprets the body’s motory and sensory functions, and produces melatonin. A serotonin derivative, that controls our sleep cycle.

Melatonin is not only necessary for proper sleep, but it also regulates the onset of puberty and fight against harmful and free radicals. Almost at the center of the brain, its location can also be understood as the third eye, the center of the brow. Focusing on the third eye stimulates not only the pineal gland but the thalamus and the cerebral cortex as well.

In children, the pineal gland secretes more melatonin than in adults, which is said to inhibit sexual development. After puberty, the pineal gland shrinks and releases less melatonin.

The pineal gland is only the size of a single grain of rice but it has been claimed to produce dimethyltryptamine, DMT, the most powerful psychedelic, and possibly most powerful psychoactive, substance known to man. However it calcifies, and produces less as the body ages. The gland calcifies when it encounters fluoride. These calcifications are known as corpora arenacea, or brain sand. This brain sand is composed of calcium phosphate, calcium carbonate, magnesium phosphate and ammonium phosphate.

Some say the reason our water is fluoridated is to intentionally calcify the pineal gland, decreasing our intelligence, resulting in a more submissive society. More willing to follow it’s leaders. Something to ponder on though is that water fluoridation has been around since the 40′s, for various reasons. This means that over time our civilization is using less and less of our pineal glands, and producing less DMT.

While knowledge of the Pineal Gland has been available for thousands of years, a lot of ancient religious symbolism going back to the Sumerians, Egyptians, Vatican and more have pineal gland symbols incorporated in them.

According to some scientists DMT is constantly being produced in the brain in trace amounts. When DMT is used as a psychedelic, the user experiences a very intense feeling of unity and oneness, perhaps this oneness is the end-all-be-all oneness of conscious itself? DMT production and consciousness in the brain, is necessary for us to further understand and survive in the world around us.

Understanding the world around us through facts allows us to increase the efficiency of our perception, and our total being. Knowledge of positive fact is beneficial to the perception. With knowledge we have awareness of what our perception represents, this is why DMT is massively released during near-death experiences. The reason of this, is the awareness of the imminence of death. The brain becomes aware that it is going to die and releases DMT at the last minute to stretch out the time it has left, by peaking your perception, so it can perform the last minute functions it needs to complete, and you can learn the things you need to know before death.

People often understand these experiences as flashbacks, entering the afterlife, becoming one with great peace or a light and the ultimate oneness of the universe. Perhaps death itself is what the DMT in our pineal glands is trying to teach us – that a totality of being is total peace and oneness.

    You all know I guess why hitler had fluoride put in the public water supply.
    The rest of the western world has cottoned onto this and that is why so many countries and city councils want fluoride in the water and will fight tooth and nail to keep the poison in our water

    As a VERY EXPERIENCED experimenter of both LSD and DMT, I would absolutely agree that DMT IS the most powerful psychedelic there is.. WAY MORE than LSD.. But even more importantly, DMT as I’ve experienced has shown me a peace and inherent love from the cosmos.. As a person leaning more in favor of atheism, DMT has shown me a spiritual oneness with “something” that is love and beauty and so much more.. Not to mention the rocket speed onset that DMT delivers… Wow!! An very special experience that is indescribable and personal… a place I will always hope to return to, but not too often..
    LSD .. Well, LSD made me giggle

    This article information is not correct. The Pineal gland is the highest endocrine gland in the body – in the brain (google it). It is the 7th chakra – connection to spiritual realms (to be very very brief)
    The Pituitary gland is the 2nd highest gland in the brain, IT is the Third Eye, associated with psychic abilities and seeing the invisible aspects of Life. The Pineal isn’t involved with human life at all, it is the link upward to the Celestial. The Pituitary is our link with the invisible or hidden aspects on earth, hence the Third Eye.

    This is like a mash up of a Wikipedia entry and an insane David Icke article. Part factual, mostly outrageous, mad bollocks. How does anyone believe this stuff?

    I know for a fact dmt has something to do with sleep. My roommate has apnea, tried 20 mg, and it stopped it for a month. For that month, she smelled like dmt, burnt plastic, all the time and slept. After a month the apnea came back and smell went away. I have cluster headaches and experimented on myself and it works in seconds every time. I’ve had several near death experiences, and the dmt had me calm and thinking I was in a nice place. As far as being a psychonaut, I’ve done enough to know what is out there, waiting, watching for a being of light without fear to join them. I have felt that absolute love or whatever it is. My body had to be destroyed by angels, then whatever that being is came up behind me, took out the negative stuff I didn’t need and put me back together. This was not an earthly love, unconditional in every sense. When that being was done, the mother elf goddess put me on a beach with waves of chrysanthemums and total peace, a place I’d like to stay, then my friend woke me up!

    and why is no one asking WHY DO WE NOT KNOW MORE THINGS FOR CERTAIN
    ABOUT THE PINEAL GLAND? surely our medical system has progressed some in the past 100 or so years…why has it neglected to study the most protected organ the human body possesses? This fact tells me Bunches.

    Love this article and love the comments. Thank you! Very interesting, and ideas to contemplate. I am not scientific, but there was recently a study by several US university scientists, regarding NDE and LTDE (long term death experiences)…. so many feel that chemicals released in the brain at the time of death are the reasons for the “tunnel of light” experiences, however, in this study, those chemicals were injected into non-dying individuals and there was definitely hallucinatory experiences, but not anywhere close to those consistently described and documented by the dying of all Faiths and non-faiths…. studies ARE being done, and it was interesting to see that the scientists on this particular project all became more spiritual/religious than where they personally began. There is still a lot to learn in the scientific world, but I love to see questions and theories being but out there for us to contemplate and discuss. It is also interesting to note that studies have been made regarding the onset of puberty, but not the end for females – as ovaries die, the other endocrine glands must take over the production of vital hormones. As this is relatively the first generation of women who are facing perimenopause and beyond, and we have exhausted our endocrine systems by trying to be super-career/super-moms, our ovaries aren’t just “dying” and other glands taking over ‘easily’ any more…. one of my doctors described it as “sputtering”, thus the increased hormonal highs and lows that middle-aged women are currently experiencing, which unfortunately have been treated by the medical community with synthetic hormones and psyc meds. In my opinion and experience, as a patient, that makes the transition even harder for our bodies. And, since women have not been a force in the medical community until this “baby boomer” generation, hormones had not been studied, as men had no idea the extremeness of the hot flashes, inability to sleep, mood swings, and other perimenopause-related symptoms. Luckily for women, and the men who love them, that is changing and although doctors readily admit “we have no idea what is going on in the female body during this transition to menopause”, it IS now being studied. I believe it’s notable that historically older women have “sage-like” wisdom, it’s just getting harder to transition in this day and age. Lots of good information here.
