The pineal gland has been referred to oftentimes as the mystical third eye by experts as it appears to be located exactly where the ancient texts say it would be.
Biologists and scientists alike have stated on multiple occasions that the pineal gland’s purpose is mainly to help produce serotonin derivative melatonin which essentially balances out our hormones but there are definitely a lot of experts out there that think there’s more to the pineal gland than meets the eye.
You can find it right in between our hemispheres which is where the third eye is also believed to be in as mentioned previously.
Many experts believe that the pineal gland is simply put the third eye when it is asleep and that by opening it, we will be able to fully unlock our potential in this world.
Doing so would allow us to see the world through and through, essentially unlocking all of the secrets of the universe within one fell swoop.
Ancient texts also tell us that the pineal gland could technically serve as the portal between our realm and the spiritual realm.
Monks for example train their minds and their bodies in order to unlock their third eye which helps them ascend from one plane of existence to another with ease.
Yoga, meditation, and some rather painful methods are commonly used to unlock it.
A lot of people have tried to force the third eye to open in the past including the Soviet Union.
Descartes also described it as the “seat of the soul” as it is where our highest level of knowledge really lies after all.
