Researching an ATS Thread regarding the Pineal Gland resulted in a possible discovery in the evolutionary process.
When I use the term evolution, I mean the ability of animals to adapt to their environment, not creation. Therefore, this may be posted in the wrong
forum, Mods, please move appropriately.
Since I had little faith anyone would read my response on the 10th or so page of the thread I thought this was important enough to start a new thread.
Please let me know what you think.
This was the thread:
Here was my response to said thread.
Thank you for the thread as researching this has opened my eyes drastically.
The responses here seem to be completely opposite of my findings, however.
Everyone so wants a higher spirituality that you are all missing the point here.
This is a Psychedelic. These are not outer body experiences or a state of higher consciousness; these are hallucinations from a psychotropic drug.
This is what causes dreams during sleep.
I found several more vitally important aspects to the gland and the chemicals it secrets.
It turns out that not only fluoride inhibits the production of said chemicals but sunlight and follicles affect them as well.
The primary result to this is aging. How amazing a discovery here.
As we evolve form our hairy outdoor ancestors and live indoors and lose follicles, we live longer and evolve. This is huge.
Although he majority here will be stuck on the whole shakra and spirituality of the hallucinations, the aging effects and evolutionary process that
makes us live longer and be more in tune with the physical nature of the universe rather than the mental dream world and fantasy world of the past.
I finally have some hope that we will evolve rather than the dumbing down I thought we were destined for.
A pre-programmed system in animals that will automatically kick off evolution. Animals that live outdoors and have hides to protect them will have a
shorter lifespan and provide them a mental escape since they can not physically interact with their environment.
When you move indoors and lose the hides, you live longer and learn about the physical world around you and learn how to manipulate it.
The example of the larger gland in cows is a great example. They are not higher spiritual beings as the posts left here about a higher consciousness
would have to lead.
Research it for yourself. If you don’t trust Wikipedia as some here do not, simply compare the info in these links to medical dictionaries.
Turns out this is may have been what the Mayans were hallucinating on. Perhaps this is the reason for the human sacrifice and many Gods they
