4 Things You Should Know About Your ‘Third Eye’

Third-Eye
We still lack a complete understanding of the pineal gland — but that doesn’t stop us from speculating.

Located in nearly the direct center of the brain, the tiny pinecone-shaped pineal gland, which habitually secretes the wondrous neurohormone melatonin while we sleep at night, was once thought to be a vestigial leftover from a lower evolutionary state.

Indeed, according to recent research, we could be increasing our chances of contracting chronic illnesses like cancer by unnecessarily bathing its evenings in artificial lightworking night shifts or staying up too late. By disrupting the pineal gland and melatonin’s chronobiological connection to Earth’s rotational 24-hour light and dark cycle, known as its circadian rhythm, we’re possibly opening the doors not to perception, but to disease and disorder. A recently published study from Vanderbilt University has found associations between circadian disruption and heart disease, diabetes and obesity.

By hacking what pinealophiles call our mind’s third eye with an always-on technoculture transmitting globally at light-speed, we may have disadvantaged our genetic ability to ward off all manner of complicated nightmares. No wonder the pineal gland is a pop-culture staple for sci-fi, fantasy and horror fandom, as well as a mass attractor of mystics and mentalists. Its powers to divide and merge our light and dark lives only seems to grow the more we take it seriously.

“We still lack a complete understanding of the pineal gland,” University of Michigan professor of physiology and neurology Jimo Borjigin, a pioneer in medical visualization of the pineal gland’s melatonin secretion, told me. “Numerous molecules are found in the pineal, many of which are uniquely found at night, and we do not have a good idea of what their functions are. The only function that is established beyond doubt is the melatonin synthesis and secretion at night, which is controlled by the central clock in the suprachiasmatic nucleus and modulated by light. All else is speculative.”

Discerning between the science and speculation of the pineal gland hasn’t been easy since long before Rene Descartes called it the “principal seat of the soul” after studying it at length nearly four centuries ago. (Although “no evidence exists to support this,” clarified Borjigin.) So here’s a handy shortlist of things you should know about the pineal gland.

1. Third Eyes and Theosophistry

The current scientific understanding is that the pineal gland probably started out as an eye, and it receives signals from light and our retinas. Whether it was our only eye which shrunk into the brain once its perceptive tasks were taken care of by our two newer eyes, or whether it was a third eye with a spiritual and physical connection to previous spiritual and evolutionary states, or both, has galvanized science and speculation for centuries.

Earth’s ancient cultural histories are filled with folklore featuring both one-eyed and three-eyed beings of great power, from Shiva and Cyclops to that amiable fellow in The Twilight Zone‘s classic episode, “Will the Real Martian Please Stand Up?” and beyond. (From Beyond even: See below.) Associations can be found in Hinduism, whose seventh primary chakra Sahasara is a multilayered lotus that looks like the pineal gland’s pinecone, and whose primary function is to perceive universal oneness, scientifically and spiritually speaking. Theosophists, who have been studying what they perceive as hidden knowledge since the Greeks and Romans ruled philosophical and scientific inquiry, have more recently claimed that the pineal gland is the spiritual engine of our evolution into “embryo gods, beings of consciousness and matter.”

That description seems apt, given the astronomical power we have achieved in a few million yeas of evolution. While Homo sapiens‘ third eyes likely transformed into pineal glands along the way, today we can still find animals with photoreceptive third eyes, now called parietal eyes, like New Zealand’s endangered tuatara. Fossils from other ancient creatures feature similar sockets in their skulls, making our pineal gland a candidate for an ex-eye.

2. What Was Once Hidden Is Now Hi-Res

Michigan University professor Borjigin and his team are hard at work on how the pineal gland and melatonin regulate our lives.

“The central circadian clock controls timing of almost all aspects of our life, including physiology and behavior, and melatonin is the best marker to decode the fingerprints of circadian timing in both humans and animals,” he told me. “In the past, it was very difficult to study circadian properties of melatonin in animals due to technical limitations. My lab invented long-term pineal microdialysis, which permits automated, computer-controlled and high-resolution analysis of melatonin secretion from rodent pineal gland from four to 10 weeks in the same animal.”

These visualizations could go a long way toward understanding how to hack melatonin, which the pineal gland secretes when we sleep and helps the brain repair and sync our bodies to Earth’s rotation. Melatonin is a stunning compound, found naturally in plants, animals and microbes. A powerful antioxidant, its list of its medicinal uses only seems to grow each year, as we learn more about its ability to help with immune disorders, chronic illnesses, and neurodegeneration.

“Pineal microdialysis allows us to monitor melatonin secretion closely under various conditions to simulate jet lag, shiftwork, light pollution, diet manipulation and more to define the fingerprints of circadian response to environment, he added. “It also allows us to discover animals with extreme chronotypes, like early-birds or night-owls, to understand how individuals with different chronotype respond to circadian challenges differently. These are still ongoing studies, but hopefully some of the works will be published this year.”

3. Artificial Light = Dark Future

What has been recently published about melatonin is already pretty significant, especially for those looking to combat breast and prostate cancer. Harvard University School of Public Health researcher Itai Kloog and his group published a series of studies in the last few years explaining how our “modern urbanized sleeping habitat” (PDF) is a massive hormone-based cancer risk. “We have blotted out the night sky” with artificial light, wrote Earth Island Journal‘s Holly Hayworth,” citing Kloog’s research and noting that half that light is wasted anyway.

“We’ve proven beyond a doubt that it’s a risk factor,” Kloog told me. “Light at night has been proven on many levels, by our group and many others, to definitely contribute to higher risk of developing hormonal cancer.”

Kloog’s team published five studies altogether, including analyses at local and global levels, and all of them found firm correlations between circadian and melatonin disruption and higher risks of cancer. Analyzing NASA’s Defense Meteorological Satellite Program archive (to illuminate Earth’s light-at-night coverage) and data from the World Health Organization, Kloog’s group “found clearly that as women were more exposed to light at nighttime, their rates of breast cancer went up. Our Israel study found that going from minimum exposure to average exposure to light at night resulted in a 36 percent higher standard rate of breast cancer, and going from average to maximum was another 26 percent increase.”

Using kernel smoothing to create density maps showing light exposure and cancer rates, Kloog’s team found that another of its studies, which sourced more than 20,000 light sources by height and intensity, showed a clear association. For their two worldwide studies, they developed an algorithm to assign population weight average light exposure for every person in every city across the world, using WHO data, and again they found a clear association between cancer and light at night.

“For average light exposure per person, if you take an underdeveloped country like Nepal, we’re talking about 0.02 nanowatts per centimeter squared,” Kloog explained. “Compare that to the United States, where the average light exposure of a person is 57.5. Up until around 120 years ago, humans were basically exposed to 12 hours of sunlight and 12 hours of darkness on average, seasons and latitudes permitting of course. But since the invention of the lightbulb, we’ve artificially stretched the day. We go to sleep late at night, we have lights on while we sleep, we have a shorter sleep duration. We have a lot of factors stretching out our days, relative to the light period we experienced during millions of years of previous evolution.”

“It’s something that’s easy to take out of the equation,” Kloog told me. “Go to sleep in a dark room. Use less light. Close the shutters. Circadian disruption is carcinogenic to humans.”

4. Occult Classic

This is not to say that late-night viewing itself isn’t good for the mind, especially when it comes to pineal glands and third eyes. Because pineal glands and third eyes remain singular components of an otherwise binary brain with an extraordinary past, they have stimulated some stranger explorations of their spiritual and supernatural possibility. The pineal gland’s circadian dualism has achieved particular resonance with influential occultists like horror influential H.P. Lovecraft. Who, in turn, have spawned new generations of speculative talents that have used it as a quite flexible receptacle for expansive meaning.

“My first exposure to the pineal gland came from Stuart Gordon’s movie adaptation of Lovecraft’s From Beyond,” Javier Grillo-Marxuach, creator of the cult sci-fi television classic The Middleman, told AlterNet. “In truth, everything I know about that particular endocrine body probably derives from that seminal experience, which explains why I am a television writer and not a brain surgeon.”

In From Beyond, a supernaturally activated pineal gland turns mad scientists into brain-eating zombies. The recently reissued 1957 exploitation film She Devil features a “female monster” whose hyperstimulated pineal gland turns her into ”a demon, a devil, a creature with a warped soul!” In both films, and many other third-eye head-trips, functions as a sexualized organ, rather than a circadian regulator. Today, some use melatonin supplements, available since the ’90s, to aid with sexual dysfunction. But the pineal gland’s expansive mythic and scientific history has much broader applications when it comes to folklore and entertainment.

“In The Middleman, we quickly discovered that because this most mysterious of glands is so misunderstood, even though its very name connotes a certain frisson of scientific accuracy and technical understanding, it was a fantastic shorthand for whatever otherworldly qualities we needed to justify,” Grillo-Marxuach added. “Over the course of 12 episodes, the pineal gland became the source of psychic ability, communication between parallel dimensions, the magical influence of succubi and incubi over the libidos of ordinary mortals and, finally, the power source for our main supervillain’s armageddon device. Since Stuart Gordon and H.P. Lovecraft gave me such a gift in my teenage years by providing me with so fanciful an understanding of cerebral anatomy, I figured I’d pay the favor forward as many times as possible.”

False Flag Trigger Words and Mass Trauma Based Mind Control

false-flag-pic

I find it significant that the Sandy Hook issue comes back into public consciousness repeatedly. It’s almost as if even the alternative community is baffled how these manipulating bastards were able to pull that highly publicized scam off so slickly, despite it being challenged from the get go and then dissected to bits as time progressed.

I know it’s had my attention. The recent interview from a fully qualified law enforcement/school safety expert has certainly done much to revive the issue.

My original post along these mass mind control/trigger lines that immediately followed the Sandy Hook incident was immediately forbidden by the goog and we were forced to remove the article. This was during the initial stages when the media muppets were repeating their boldfaced threats regarding any reports to the contrary to the party line would be treated as subversive. You can easily see why, when it so profoundly exposes the deeper agenda.

Just research all the weird tie-ins to this suspicious event, never mind the usual inconsistencies. It’s almost surreal.

Then There’s the “Sandy” Trigger

Sandy Hook followed the likewise engineered devastating Hurricane Sandy which was still fresh in everyone’s minds. It makes a great psychological tie in to instill greater fear. Is there a significance to the name and its repeated use?

Whether a signal to programmed stooges or general activation signals that the game is on, trigger words are nothing new in the world of mind control and mental manipulation.

See what you think.

The Rise of the Guardians?

Just notice how the name Sandy is repeated and emphasized. It’s clear something paranormal is at play. The animation industry specializes in suggestive and subliminal programming and mind manipulation. And the theme of this story is influencing people’s dreams, i.e. subconscious.

A little blatant? Just how they like it.

The last line of the trailer is the message the kids will remember: “Everyone needs a guardian.” Sure ties in nicely with Obama declaring all kinds of new draconian controls to “prevent something like this from ever happening again” or any one of his mind-numbing draconian statements, doesn’t it. Yes, Big Brother, the Protector, Guardian of the people with the outstretched arms of our metastasized State to keep us safe and warm.

By the way, Hurricane Sandy made landfall on October 29th, 2012. This movie was released Nov. 21st, and the shootings took place the middle of the next month. 1-2-3. Actually there was one shooting every month except January and June of that year.

Trauma Based Mind Control

Sandy Hook is just one instance. You’ll find blatant examples of trigger words and phrases used by governments and the media to instigate and justify wars and phony false flag provocations throughout history. Their plans have simply become more insidious. The reason why traumatic experiences are important to mind control is because the human mind is more susceptible to hypnotic command in this state. Trance states of dissociation are the optimum for suggestibility and programming, and on a mass scale they use traumatic images and events via today’s worldwide media, and with television they take further advantage, amping the hype and imagery while electronically inducing low alpha waves that relax the brain, making the mind much more suggestible.

If this subject is new to you, there’s a link to a quick tutorial below to get you started. They’ve since gotten much more sophisticated when controlling the masses using a variety of techniques including drugs and technology, but this is the sordid background of the practice and its purpose.

This system of mind control has its origins in Illuminati based black magic practices. Multigenerational Satanic cults and high level Illuminati members have employed mind control for centuries. The basics of this type of mind control slavery was optimized and expanded after World War 2 following the gruesome experiments conducted in the Nazi concentration camps. Dr. Joseph Mengele, (aka, Dr. Green) disappeared from Auschwitz in January of 1945, and was smuggled into the US by the Illuminati.  (More HERE)

This mind control influence on the shootings is summarized really well here: (this is to set up the patsy and put the “play” into effect, whatever transpires..)

Rogue intelligence agents and their psychiatrist colleagues have been brainwashing “lone nuts” to commit murder at least since the CIA’s MK-Ultra program achieved its objectives circa 1960.Why would such “rogue networks” want to send brainwashed Manchurian Candidates into schools to massacre children? Let’s allow one of the terrorists themselves to answer that question.

Remember Operation Gladio? The Pentagon, through NATO, organized bombings and shootings in the streets of Europe. When one of the terrorists got caught, he explained at his trial: “You had to attack civilians, the people, women, children, innocent people, unknown people far removed from any political game. The reason was quite simple. They were supposed to force these people, the Italian public to turn to the State to ask for greater security.” He later explained the “strategy of tension” to the BBC: “To create tension within the country to promote conservative, reactionary social and political tendencies.” Source

Look for the Occult – i.e. Hidden

There’s always much more than meets the eye. 9/11 was an occult sacrificial ritual of the highest order while an unsuspecting world watched spellbound and then waltzed willingly into an Orwellian future. Sandy Hook and most of these shooting or bombing events the same. Each succeeding incident builds on the previous one, such as Waco and Oklahoma City. That’s how our current police state arrived.

They will and do use anything and everything as a weapon against our awakening and empowerment. Forces outside of our reality are at work, with willing agents amongst us to carry out their plan. That’s just the way it is. And we need to be aware of these influences, yet free and clear from them.

The techniques mentioned here are just a few, as far fetched as they may sound. The fact is, it’s common knowledge that at the least such things as repeated phrases increase suggestibility and easy entrainment. Obama, for example, keeps repeating certain phrases which are obvious mental implants. Watch for this. His gestures and intonations are measured and designed for a certain response as well.

That’s just one obvious, surface level of this technique. It goes much, much deeper.

High In-Your-Face Sorcery

Fundamentally, they are sorcerers. To find connections like this, as well as numerological significance, ley line placements, occult dates, Freemasonry and the like is no surprise. People are still finding clues leading up to 9/11 and discovering all sorts of occult undertones as to what went down that fateful day, as well as to most other staged false flag events.

The dark manipulators like the big stage. The bigger the better, the more bang for their buck. They foreshadowed the hell out of 9/11 with gobs of predictive programming. This continual run up of staged mass killings has been chosen as their false flag du jour for a reason. The barrage of gratuitously violent video games and movies is another surreal part of the now accepted program.

That’s the real smoking gun. Our clearly engineered society and who is behind creating it.

They also like to brag about it. In fact flaunt it, and mock our ignorance. But does anybody even notice the programming?

Doesn’t seem like too many do.  And those who do are hooted down as nut jobs.

As Voltaire wisely said, “To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize.”

But also remember what Gandhi stated; “First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.’

The Awakening Is Real

It’s thrilling to see how the alternative community jumped all over the Sandy Hook incident, as we have on so many other clearly staged events. It was covered every which way from Sunday right out of the gate.

It seems pretty bleak when we realize the depths that these creatures sink to and our having to get sullied by their dark reality, but it is important to learn to identify. Recognizing what we’re up against is half the battle. Then it’s simply deciding we won’t accept it and acting, or not acting, accordingly.

That’s a big part of awakening.

Be empowered, be confident. We are the true revolution.

Keep on keeping on.

Love, Zen
