The mind’s eye, scientifically known as the pineal gland, is considered to be the gateway to higher levels of consciousness. In case you weren’t aware, the pineal gland is a small pine cone shaped endocrine gland in the brain that produces and secretes the hormone, melatonin. It is also believed that the pineal gland is responsible for the release of Dimethyltryptamine (DMT). Also known as the “third eye,” the pineal gland is believed to be the “principle seat of the soul,” according to Descartes. As you can see, this gland has many functions, both physically and metaphysically so keeping it functioning at its full potential should be a priority of everyone seeking a healthy mind.
