In my understanding, the "third eye" usually refers to the pineal gland, which plays a part in sensitivity to metaphysical / psychic phenomena. It
could be very crudely compared to an organic antenna that's sensitive to those kinds of "frequencies". It's also associated with neurotransmitter
levels and melatonin, yet was assumed to be a vestigial organ not long ago.
The pineal gland can become calcified from high levels of fluoride in the body and affect not only psychic awareness, but also neurotransmitter levels
and melatonin metabolism. Calcification of the pineal gland has also been associated with symptoms of schizophrenia. This will not be publicly
acknowledged by the medical association anytime soon, as it would be another reason for massive class action lawsuits to flood our court systems. In
the AMA's thoughts, it's better swept under the rug for now and let someone else deal with it later.
As for it being associated with an "eye", our thoughts tend to go where our eyes go. Magicians make use of this by distracting our thoughts by
getting our eyes to follow movement. "Out of sight, out of mind". The energy patterns created during meditation can be strongly affected by having
the eyes open, as it tends to direct the thoughts outward and often towards a certain point, rather than inward or beyond our normal vision range. The
pineal is another organ that can detect energies and be used to direct thoughts, the same as our eyes detect light.
