Almost every civilization throughout history has referenced the pineal gland as something of irreplaceable significance. It is mentioned, although code like at times, in ancient texts and structures. Even today, everything from modern day religion to movies reference the Pineal Gland and give you hints or suttle suggestions of its miraculous powers.
What is the Pineal Gland?
Don’t fooled by the casual descriptions given by modern so-called experts in the medical field. They will have you believing that the pineal gland is nothing more then a gland that helps regulate sleep and that ancient civilizations spoke highly of this particular gland out of speculation, not science or a deep understanding of human anatomy.
According to Edward Bruce Bynum in Dark Light Consciousness,
The pineal gland is light sensitive and earlier in evolution rested closer to the surface of the brain. It is a kind of vestigial eye. Over the eons as evolution has advanced it has descended deeper into the brain core of the higher life forms. In the current stage of Homo sapiens sapiens development it has descended into the midline center of the brain between the two hemispheres. It is attached very loosely to the posterior end of the root of the third ventricle. About the size of a pea, it is cone shaped and gray to red-gray in color. It points upward and out of the body. It is known to convert central nervous system signals into endocrine system activity and secrete subtle and powerful hormones many of which are known to have visionary or hallucinogenic capacities. DMT or N-dimethyl-tryptamine is only one of these. Its metabolism has been clinically associated with NDE (Near Death Experiences), visionary experiences, perceptions of other dimensions, and alien intelligences. Derivatives of melatonin, another production of the pineal gland, have been associated with similar experiences.

Pinecones and The Pineal Gland
It seems to me that these days when people think of the “third eye” or “all seeing eye” they automatically associated it with the Illuminati. If you are someone with that assumption then I’d recommend some additional research. Eventually you’d come to understand the ancient African roots of that symbology.
Throughout the span of recorded human history, Pinecones have served as a symbolic representation of Human Enlightenment, the Third Eye and the Pineal Gland.
Conifer Pine Trees are one of the most ancient plant genera on the planet, having existed nearly three times longer than all flowering plant species. The Pinecone is the evolutionary precursor to the flower, and its spines spiral in a perfect Fibonacci sequence in either direction, much like the Sacred Geometry of a rose or a sunflower.thirdeyepinecones.com
Our “Pine”al Gland, shaped like (and named after) the Pinecone, is at the geometric center of our brain and is intimately linked to our body’s perception of light. The Pineal modulates our wake-sleep patterns and circadian rhythms, remains uniquely isolated from the blood-brain barrier system, and receives a higher percentage of blood flow than any other area of the body save the kidneys.
It is considered by many to be our biological Third Eye, the “Seat of the Soul,” the “Epicenter of Enlightenment” — and its sacred symbol throughout history, in cultures around the world, has been the Pinecone.thirdeyepinecones.com
The center of spiritual practices throughout history was based around the activation of the Pineal Gland. Achieving this activation would be considered the Great Awakening, or Divine Alignment of the Chakras, or being re-born in the spirit of Christ. This phenomenon has many names that all point to a level of human transcendence.
