Okay, a little bit of misconception in this thread... So I'm going to drop some knowledge that I have accumulated about the Pineal Gland.
Okay, first off... Fluoride does not "Calcify" the pineal gland.... Calcium does.
Hence the term "Calcification", it refers to the growth of calcium microcrystals on the pineal gland.
What fluoride *DOES* however, is to change these Calcite crystals to Fluorite (A.K.A. Feldspar) which is a harder mineral than calcite, and has
different piezoelectric properties as well.
This makes the Crystals harder to get rid of, because of the chemical differences between calcite and fluorite.
Anyway, the Pineal gland has similar structures to a sort of "Proto-Eye" in many vertebrates.
The third eye represents evolution's earlier approach to photoreception. The structures of the third eye in the tuatara are homologous to the
cornea, lens and retina, though the latter resembles that of an octopus rather than a vertebrate retina. The asymmetrical whole consists of the
"eye" to the left and the pineal sac to the right. "In animals that have lost the parietal eye, including mammals, the pineal sac is retained and
condensed into the form of the pineal gland."
The Pineal gland has photosensitive cells that control the circadian rhythm (wake sleep cycle), and I have heard that these cells are sensitive to
visible light in the Violet end of the spectrum.
