Yet, the pineal gland wasn’t bestowed the name “third eye” for just any random reason. Rather, when dissected from the brain, it is found that the pineal gland actually contains photoreceptors just like our own two seeing eyes and is actually activated by light transmitted through our two eyes. This sunlight transmitted through our eyes stimulates the pineal gland’s production of serotonin and further works to strengthen the gland’s ability to break free of specific harmful chemicals t

A lot of ancient teachings talk about pineal gland as the spot where body and spirit connects. What is also good to look at is how DMT can bring us that connection with another realms. There has been a study conducted where participants, took DMT and what they recall blows my mind.

Plato compares us to those who are chained to the cave wall in his metaphor. He points out that we believe and think we see reality by watching the shadows on the wall. He states that we should consider the possibility of releasing one of those in chains to stand up and turn to face the light from the exit of the cave. The sunlight would cause great pain to this person as he or she would be used only to darkness. Thus, no clear vision would be possible. If he or she got used to the light and saw

The question you should be asking is whether you are the one in chains or the one who “sees” matters for what they truly are. Here is the video explaining the idea

Not having sufficient private time or activities can not only hinder a child’s independent growth, but it can cause them to be overly reliant on others around them and will do absolutely nothing to improve their individual problem-solving skills. Constantly being watched will only add to this problem – many kids are shy by nature and will not feel comfortable expressing themselves in this type of environment. Furthermore, when there is not adequate data explaining in detail how a child behav

In 2006, Sir Ken Robinson, a British author and international advisor on education, held a moving, must-see TED talk which has been viewed by millions on how schools kill creativity. The primary way schools go about killing creativity is by punishing children for making mistakes, while failure is the prerequisite to learning and creativity. In Robinson's words: "Being wrong is not the same thing a

There is a musical scale referred to as “Solfeggio”. This scale is comprised of six tonal notes which were said to be chanted by Gregorian knights. The purpose in the chants was that they contain special tones or frequencies which, when sung in harmony, were believed to impart spiritual blessings during religious masses. In 1050 AD, however, these specific frequencies seem to have become lost to history though some still believe they’re kept in the archives of the Vatican. Each of the six

Don't know how much truth there is to this theory, but there are some meditations on the web that you can try out that have this frequency.

Historically speaking, cannabis has been used by humans for thousands of years not only as medicine, but also for food, clothing, and lots of more. Cannabis prohibition is less than 100 years old. The facts reveal a big war that was declared to cannabis by the big industries such as alcohol, paper, tobacco industries and Big Pharma. Cannabis is a competitor to all of these companies that did and still do whatever they can in order to protect and increase their profits.

For most of human history, marijuana has been completely legal. It’s not a recently discovered plant, nor is it a long-standing law. Marijuana has been illegal for less than 1% of the time that it’s been in use. Its known uses go back further than 7,000 B.C. and it was legal as recently as when Ronald Reagan was a boy. The marijuana (hemp) plant, of course, has an incredible number of uses. Th

In a world ruled by greed, primitive desires and material interests, where people’s intellectual, moral and spiritual level is constantly going down, it’s no surprise that deep thinkers often feel like they don’t belong here. Sometimes, you just can’t understand other people and their actions, which makes you wonder why you are such a misfit and feel like you come from another planet.

The value of a man was reduced to his immediate identity and nearest possibility. To a vote. To a number. To a thing. Never was a man treated as a mind. As a glorious thing made up of star dust. In very field, in studies, in streets, in politics, and in dying and living. - Rohith Vemula

Until 1980, anxiety didn’t even exist. Sure, the symptoms were still present, but the official anxiety disorder diagnosis hadn’t yet been created, so people were unaware of why they were feeling the way they were. However, as the research into anxiety and depression has grown, we have discovered that whilst there are countless reasons for somebody to suffer, foods can actually influence the disorders more than we realise. Today’s society are shying away from foods that our ancestors ate an

The analysis of this and few other artifacts led to the discovery of a previously unknown species of hominin, now known now as Denisova hominin. Denisova 3 or X-Woman is among the first known remains of this newly discovered species of humans, and according to the results of the examination, she is 41.000 years old. Compared to the fossil remains of Neandertals and modern humans, the DNA results showed variations which led scientists to believe that Denisovans were sister spices of Neandertals.

In addition, the level of skill and expertise required to create the piece has led to speculation that these earliest humans were more technologically advanced than previously thought, with the Denisovans seemingly more skilled than Homo sapiens or Neanderthals.

The science of neurology has done a great job in finding correlations between brain activity and conscious experiences, yet it is clueless regarding how one could cause the other. And indeed, as statisticians often say that, correlation is not causation, the brain may not be the cause for consciousness. For example, we find a correlation of 100% between the electrical activity in a radio receiver and the music it produces, yet the radio is not the cause of the music. The cause of the music is t

“Looking for consciousness in the brain is like looking Inside a radio for the announcer.” ? Nassim Haramein One of the most discussed, studied, argued about and elusive topics in fields ranging from neuroscience to philosophy is the problem of consciousness. What is it, where is it, how do we know? In the 16th century René Descartes famously said, “Cogito ergo sum” (I think, therefore I

The philosopher Rene Descartes suggested that our mind and thoughts are our true identity. An identity, he called a “soul”. The philosopher John Locke argued that momentary thoughts are not consistent and change over time. They cannot be our identity since identity is something that must be consistent over time. He suggested that what makes a person himself is a minimal amount of memory that must remain constant throughout his life. For example, I am myself and not another because I remember

Think positive Being an overthinker can often mean you’re hard on yourself and end up kicking yourself for things you’ve done or haven’t done. When you feel this happening, force yourself to think of a positive from that situation and focus on that one thing, instead of the negative things you’re overthinking about. If you overthink about potential situations that haven’t happened yet, force yourself to think about the best possible outcome instead of the worst. At first, it may be har

“Psilocybin dramatically transformed the participants’ brain organization. With the drug, normally connected brain regions showed brain activity that was synchronized tightly in time. That suggested the brain was stimulating long-range connections the brain normally wouldn’t make. After the drug wore off, brain activity went back to normal.”

In research conducted by Dr. Juan R. Sanchez-Ramos at the University of Florida, mice were able to regrow brain cells in damaged areas of the brain and learn to overcome fear. It appears that psilocybin binds to receptors that stimulate growth and healing. In his research, Dr. Sanchez-Ramos trained mice to associate certain noises with electro shocks. Once some of these mice were given psilocybin,

Hyperconsciousness - A little more of a biological explanation which may account for near death experience recounts could be the “hyperconsciousness,” which has been proven to result for the first thirty seconds after death. Electrodes were implanted in the brains of rats to monitor brain activity at the time of death, and the portions of the brain which deal with perception, including the temporoparietal junction, function significantly differently for this 30 second period. Some of them, h

Which food labels should be followed and which are meaningless? Many of the food labels you see are completely meaningless and are only placed there to try and make them seem fancier, which leads to you spending more money than you have to. The labels you should follow are those stating that the food is pesticide free, organic, and peanut/tree nut/soy/gluten free. Food labels that are meaningless are labels claiming that the product is doctor-recommended. This claim makes the food sound like it

Science backs this idea up with a new study presented at the Annual Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics in Beijing, which suggests we may need to do a double take on those who are “too nice” and overly polite. The study found that those who are highly nice to their peers are more likely to stab them in the back than their less polite counterparts.

According to Dispenza, our past is “recorded” in the neural networks of the brain which shape the way we perceive and experience the world as a whole and define its activities. Thus, we just think that our reactions are spontaneous. In fact, most of them are programmed stable neural bonds. Each object (stimulus) activates a particular neural network, which in turn causes a certain set of chemical reactions in the body. These chemical reactions cause us to act or feel a certain way – to fle

A new discovery suggests that dark matter may not be as dark as it was previously imagined. Indeed, for the first time and following a comprehensive research on four colliding galaxies in a galactic cluster named as Abell 3827, researchers claimed to have discovered dark matter to be “slowing down” after interaction with other dark matter. This phenomenon that contradicts previous investigations suggests that dark matter may be capable of interacting with a force other than gravity. Last au
