The pineal gland does not produce N-dimethyltryptamine. This claim comes from a psychiatrist named Rick Strassman. However, the evidence for his claim is extremely lacking. We have found trace amounts of '___' in cerebrospinal fluid. This means that somewhere in the brain '___' is synthesized. Strassman claims that the necessary components to synthesize '___' are found in the pineal gland. These components being tryptamine and transferase. While both of these components are found in the pineal gland '___' needs a specific type of transferase to be synthesized called indolethylamine N-methyltransferase which is not found in the pineal gland. It is however found in a few other areas of the brain which would explain the amounts of '___' found in cerebrospinal fluid. which brings up another point. The amount of '___' found in cerebrospinal fluid suggests that it is working to potentiate monoamines, such as serotonin, not produce hallucinations.
As for dreams, these are produced by certain dopaminergic pathways found in the frontal cortex. We know this because when these pathways are removed dreaming stops. We have also found that introducing a substance such as L-dopa into these pathways produces more vivid dreams. The truth is many of the New Age claims you see regarding the pineal gland are based on horribly out of date science. In fact many of the claims stem directly from the writings of Descartes.

unfortunately,most people cant 'open' their third eye because of all the flouride in the water. this crystalizes the pineal gland,and dumbs you up.(thats what the ptb want-drones!)
the pineal gland IS the third eye.
its called the pineal gland because it looks like a pine cone.
interestingly enough,sumerian art (among other cultures) depicts the priests holding a staff with a pinecone like object on the top of it!
coincidence? i think not!!!
i dont think most people could handle the experience of opening their third eye. before you meet the great creator,you have to do battle with your own demons,and if you lose,well........!
and yes i have,but its like trying to explain an lsd trip to someone who hasnt done it. you can't!

I'm really getting to the point to where I am starting to overlook alot of these threads because every other day, you guys DONT SEARCH the topics or dont really visit this place all that much to see the SAME THING repeated!
Cmon guys.. How bout something new???
All you have here are videos and information that has been pilled in previous threads time and again. The SAME videos! Just recompiled under a diffrent title.
Cmon!! This is getting stupid. How about some new theories??? How about some new information??? How about thinking for yourselves a bit more and stop pulling everyone elses threads and rewritting them into yours under a diffrent name.. So what if it's date specific. So are all the others. It's just more commonly addressed as 2012.
When someone says 2012... It's not like the first thing that comes to mind is March 19th... It's always going to be THAT date.
edit on 11-1-2012 by theRhenn because: ooops

No really, if anything happens i cant see it as "good" when 78% of Americans still believe they are going to heaven. Anything out of the norm will cause chaos, so if some "ancestors" come back, i hope they mean george washington, micheal jackson or tupac. Cuz anyone else and gun sales are going way the heck up.
