Pineal Gland Awakened? Connection between mind and body « on: August 23, 2010, 03:53:07 pm »
Hey guys, I’ve been doing a lot of research lately after reading some pretty disturbing posts about DR and DP.
French Philosopher Rene Descartes believed the pineal gland to be “the seat of the soul” where mind and body met. Interesting note!
In the average person, the pineal gland is atrophied and dormant. And if you ever read some of this guy’s philosophy on life and God you would think he was going through benzo withdrawal. It’s bizarre as hell and I remember writing essays on his philosophy during college when I was taking philosophy as a minor and thinking to myself that this guy is on a whole new wave length of thinking.
Recent studies indicate that the pineal gland (The Third Eye) can be awakened by extreme pressure or concussions to the head. After the pineal gland has been awakened, it is very hard for it to go dormant again.
This pineal gland is activated by Light, and it controls the various bio-rhythms of the body. It works in harmony with the hypothalamus gland which directs the body’s thirst, hunger, sexual desire and the biological clock that determines our aging process. When it awakens, one feels a pressure at the base of the brain.
While the physiological function of the pineal gland has been unknown until recent times, mystical traditions and esoteric schools have long known this area in the middle of the brain to be the connecting link between the physical and spiritual worlds. Considered the most powerful and highest source of ethereal energy available to humans, the pineal gland has always been important in initiating supernatural powers. Development of psychic talents has been closely associated with this organ of higher vision.
Anyhow, I thought this was interesting and would probably explain why we all get this severe head pressure and why we all seem to be philosophizing so much about the meaning of life. I’m going to email my philosophy professor and get his opinion on the pineal gland and how Descartes viewed it. If we’re going to have this for the time being, why not have some fun with it’s mystical powers instead of being freaked out.
BTW: I have no evidence of this, and am simply speculating. So please don’t take this to heart, or think I’m some new nutcase or something. It just seems so interesting to me and if anyone has some insight please share. And if this isn’t the right forum to post this, I apologize.
