We All Have at Least Three Eyes—One Inside the Head

In Beyond Science, Epoch Times explores research and accounts related to phenomena and theories that challenge our current knowledge. We delve into ideas that stimulate the imagination and open up new possibilities. Share your thoughts with us on these sometimes controversial topics in the comments section below.

The pineal gland in the human brain has the structure of an eye. It has cells that act as light receptors, as the retina does. It has a structure comparable to the vitreous—a gel-like substance between the retina and lens of the eye. It has a structure similar to a lens. 

Scientists are still learning much about the pineal body, known in both Eastern spiritualism and Western philosophy as the seat of human consciousness. Eastern beliefs also hold that, on other plains of existence, eyes may be seen all over the body. Western science is slowly coming to understand the pineal body as a third eye.

For many years, scientists have recognized the similarities between the pineal body and the eyes. In 1919, Frederick Tilney and Luther Fiske Warren wrote that the similarities listed above prove the pineal gland was formed to be light-sensitive and possibly to have other visual capabilities. 

More recently, in 1995, Dr. Cheryl Craft, chair of the department of cell and neurobiology at the University of Southern California, wrote about what she called the “mind’s eye.”

“Under the skin in the skull of a lizard lies a light-responsive ‘third eye’ which is the … equivalent of the bone-encased, hormone-secreting pineal gland in the human brain. The human pineal is denied access to light directly, but like the lizard’s ‘third eye,’ it shows enhanced release of its hormone, melatonin, during the night,”  she wrote. “The pineal gland is the ‘mind’s eye.'” 

A bundle of nerve fibers connects it to the posterior commissure, another part of the brain that is not well-understood. 

In the 1950s, researchers discovered the pineal body’s ability to detect light, and to produce melatonin according to the amount of light it detects. In this way, it essentially controls important rhythms in the body. It affects the reproduction and immune systems. The pineal body was previously thought to be vestigial, but this discovery showed it actually has an important function.

In May 2013, another discovery was made that could change the way the pineal body is viewed.

It was found that a rat’s pineal body produces N,N-Dimethyltryptamine (DMT). DMT has a widespread presence in organic beings that is not well-understood. Some people ingest DMT to induce psychedelic experiences often characterized as intensely spiritual.

Dr. Rick Strassman conducted U.S. government-approved clinical research at the University of New Mexico in the 1990s, injecting human volunteers with DMT. He calls DMT the “spirit molecule.” 

The study that confirmed the presence of DMT in the pineal glands of rats was conducted at the University of Michigan by Dr. Jimo Borjigin and at Louisiana State University by Dr. Steven Barker. It was partially funded by the Cottonwood Research Foundation, which is headed by Dr. Strassman and which supports scientific research into the nature of consciousness. It was published in the journal Biomedical Chromatography.

    So the twilight zone wasn’t that far off the mark only the wrong planet

      As a parent, it generally moves to the back of the head. :-) I read this because I have a friend who always talks about this “light” inside his head, that no one seems to know what he’s talking about, and he has a really tough time explaining it. He sees bright colors inside his head, and when he sees it, he knows that “something” is brewing. Sometimes a friend has a car accident, or his kid will break an arm, stuff like that. But, he can’t “predict” anything, it doesn’t tell him anything, he describes it as a warning light to expect the unexpected. Weird. Wonder if it’s this pineal gland overworking itself. :-)

    The Third eye is the wisest…see’s ALL! Intuition :)

    The “Third Eye” is a gland. Not an eye. Jesus. It’s biology…not magic.

    They use their golden pituitary and pineal (DMT) glands and we do not.

    Speaking of his peers in power, Woodrow Wilson said “They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.”

    For those of us constrained to a 3 –D space perspective, what Woodrow is really saying here is that somebody with a vastly higher brainbandwidth is watching over the earthly activities from a higher dimension and fromthis all pervasive perspective, check-mates us at every turn. What distinguishesus from their superstates of consciousness and our consciousness lobotomy is they are using their pituitary and pineal glands and we are not.

    Earthlings must come to grips with the extent of the reality model and kick up our brain bandwidths to get into the cosmic game of life or be its consequences. Operating at our limited consciousness level, will not do the job nor will waiting for some saviour to come and fix the problem if we are to be realistic.

    The only solution is to form a functioning relationship with reality and seriously kick up the brain bandwidths with glandular rejuvenation and consciousness boosting hormonal secretions. Only DMT driven bandwidths can provide the individual with the innate resources to hang with or compete with what Woodrow speaks of.

    These entities have been using these bandwidth enhancers for millions of years and will continue to rule over us like the victim sheep we are unless we too “Kick it
