According to the gospels, Jesus was crucified on a hilltop named Golgotha, which when translated means "place of the skull" in English. He is also said to have been crucified in the middle of two other men who are said to have been thieves or bandits.


John 19
So the soldiers took charge of Jesus. 17 Carrying his own cross, he went out to the place of the Skull (which in Aramaic is called Golgotha). 18 There they crucified him, and with him two others—one on each side and Jesus in the middle.


I think this narrative is highly symbolic and metaphorical in its meaning, and I hope to enlighten you on what I believe it really means.

So two men on both sides of another man who claimed to be "the light of men" and "the light of the world" who were crucified on top of a hill which translates to "place of the skull".

The brain is located within the skull and has two halves with the middle containing the pineal gland.

On each side of the pineal gland lies halves of the thalamus, which has many functions, one of which is to relay input from the retinas to the occipital lobe, which in turn creates the image that we see. It also regulates consciousness.

Could Jesus on the cross with two thieves represent the pineal gland and the thalamus within our brains, which itself is located in the "place of the skull"? I think so.

The pineal gland's main function is to produce melatonin, which in turn regulates our sleep and wake cycles. The less light the pineal gland receives, the more melatonin it produces and vice versa. More light = less melatonin produced, which means less sleep and more wakefulness.

When we sleep, there is darkness, when we wake there is light, so Jesus calling himself "the light of the world" is a pretty obvious nod toward wakefulness and consciousness itself, and the parallels with the set up of the crucifixion and the thalamus/pineal gland only cements my opinion on what it is supposed to represent.

Paul describes those who do not believe in Jesus as "asleep in Christ".


1 Thessalonians 4
14 For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him.


As we know, the less light the pineal gland receives, the more likely you will fall asleep.

Jesus also refers to the third eye.


Matthew 6
22 The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.


The "single eye" that Jesus speaks of is the image that we see. It is the eye of the mind, or the "third eye". If you look at the shape of your image, you will even notice it is shaped like an eye. The pineal gland is also commonly referred to as the "third eye", and it regulating sleep patterns means it activates the "light of man", which is consciousness. It is also referred to as the seat of the soul by some.

If you make your eye single, your spiritual body (your image) will be full of light. Everyone's image is full of light, that is what makes it an image. Most do not acknowledge this though, because they have been taught to think otherwise or face condemnation.

So in short, my theory is that Jesus is within all of us, he represents consciousness and wakefulness, something we all have. Jesus being crucified on Golgotha between two thieves represents religion killing spirituality by putting so much emphasis on a man's death instead of his life.

Hopefully you enjoyed this thread, and hopefully I may have opened your "eye". Thanks for reading.

It (between two crosses) also represents the divided middle between the twin pillars of Justice and Mercy through which the love of God blows as Spirit.

Or it could simply be the place, Golgotha, which is right above an asphalt parking lot for tour busses in Jerusalem, and a very short way from an interesting looking tomb that fits the description found in the Bible and dates to about 2000 years ago, perhaps once owned by Joseph of Arimathea.

I was there about 4:00 pm the November before the Egyptian uprising. I took a very poor picture, but the skull shape in the rock was obvious. Of course, there is more than one location in Jerusalem where the crucifixion is said to have taken place. I've been to those places, too, but this one, to me, at least, is just eerie.

I'll play along with this by asking a two part question:

How does the pineal gland absorb light and does the calcification of the pineal gland keep the gland from absorbing light?

Or they could have placed the narrative of Jesus' crucifixion there for the fact that it is in the shape of a skull, thus completing the symbolism they were trying to convey.

Those in power like to hide the truth in plain sight using symbolism. There was a thread about that exact thing a few days ago. They like to flaunt what they do right in front of us without us even realizing it.

Crucifix = Cross = X = t

Skull and X Bones

Elixir of Eternal Life -- Blood and Flesh
Holy Grail -- Skull

Light -- Gold
Dark -- Lead

Holy Trinity concept found in religions worldwide.
Life Death Rebirth deity concept is found everywhere too.

Vegetation - Time - Fertility Cycles , etc.

What you see in something like this represents your interpretations
of what you saw everywhere else.

I almost have a good draft ready to start a thread explaining a lot of this stuff.
Anytime now actually.

It's going to be really condensed though with a ton of info so it will probably be difficult to consume, and so I kind of plan to spend a few weeks continually adding more stuff when I can.

The hard part is compiling the links and finding the right pics, then trying to condense it till it's reasonably sized.

Oh well, I'm gonna go mess with it some more and try to organize things as it's still very disorganized compilations of stuff over a long period of time.

Joseph of Arimathea (between two hills) owned that land. It seems fitting the crucifixion happened on his land as he was Jesus's Godfather and protector as a youth. Golgatha is the place of irony as you can see plainly as Joseph was extremely wealthy, owned sailing vessels and took that boy to the orient and other places (Great Britian) as an importer of Tin. Never understood the term "calgary", only golgatha. NO crosses were used only post and beam T forms. NO CROSSES.

Through the top of head or 'crown chakra' or through your orbits (eyes). You will see it (third eye) with your eyes closed after glancing at the sun for 30 seconds at sundown or sunrise. What is this calcification nonsense, attributed to floride being added to drinking water...some say.

To me that's putting the cart before the horse, symbolism added after the fact. Why keep something simple when it can be complicated and esoteric? IMO, that's what is wrong with Christianity (and a lot of other things) today. Simple things made complex enough to be inaccessible, which is kind of the point. If you take something simple and wrap it in esoteric symbolism, only the priests are qualified to interpret the meaning. And you can never prove symbolism wrong.

The rock, as I understand it, was only relatively recently recognized as skull shaped in the 1980's, the only one conveniently next to a tomb. But there are many other purported locations.

I assume you mean Calvary and not Calgary? Calvary is another name or Golgotha and it stems from the word Calvaria which means bald. If we look at the word "bald", it stems from the the Sanskrit word "bhalam" which means forehead. The forehead chakra is where the third eye supposedly is.

Lots of symbolism went into the crucifixion narrative and I think it all points toward the pineal gland.

Kundalini Rising?
Coiled Serpent?

Ton of info on that can be found all over.

Better question:
What mythology doesn't reference this concept?

Jesus = Sun
Cross = Celestial Cross of Time

Do you remember how I said Skull and Cross Bones?
Think about it, we have two thieves, pirates are thieves.

Also it derives from "Theta" the Greek letter.
It means Death.
Thus Thanatos

I like both words, I combine and use them as rote. Calvary is the men on horseback saving women and children during the Native American Wars, Calgary is Golgotha, or another word for the meaning behind the assension/betrayal of Jesus. Sure, the forehead (right between the eyes) is the 3rd chakra--to the pineal gland mid brain same level, acorn or pineapple in shape. Mysterious gland, no one has yet to understand its function, I know, it is the means to telepathy and empathic understanding. Too much symbolism in the actual "act" of bloody lamb sacrifice, ---its over the top in slamming some idea down so hard--latin soap opera-as to not be believed. If there was a comedic aspect to it, it would be this....the T form post beam was re-purposed after the body was removed-- to make toothpicks for the Roman Guard-- therein becoming the first (backdoor unlikely) Christians to take communion (might have been bloody fleshy remnants on that wood).

I agree with you, the bible is entirely too convoluted, and I think that's for a reason, to cause confusion. The truth is simple and elegant, and the bible distorts that truth through metaphor, symbolism, and thousands of pages of fluff.

What I'm trying to do here is point out the simple truth that's in all of us, which the bible distorts through symbolism.

The place where Jesus was crucified was considered the "place of the skull" because of the formation of the rock. If not, that is a mighty huge "coincidence" that they only discovered the skull formation in 1980. I mean it's there for everyone to see and has been for a long time.

Through the retina of the eye. Light is turned into an electrical signal which is then "read" by the thalamus and pineal gland. I don't know anything about calcification of the pineal gland through fluoride though.

Yes, the retina, Yes, the thalamus processes or produces the sneaky hormones that interpret the data and diseminate it through the pineal gland. Its amazing that endocrine specialists have no idea why we have these glands adrenals even (THEY OF COURSE WOULD BE THE LAST TO KNOW). I heard that fluoride calcifies the pineal gland, no idea proof . Did you know that those that have had their thyroid glands removed DO NOT DREAM.

Hi there! Sorry, not trying to be rude or picky...but a cavalry is an army component mounted on horseback, Calgary is a city in Canada, and Calvary is another name for Golgotha.

That's all I had to say.

Yeah, I have a bunch of ideas floating around in my head too that I wish I could create a more well-laid out thread and OP, but I don't really have the means to do it right now. I don't own a computer and most of the time I post from my phone, and it's not a very good for copy/pasting and such.

For now, I have to resort to an "on the fly" approach, for lack of a better term.

And very quick on the comeback. You dont know me and the ways I reels in peoples such as you. So, do you like Canada? Or the city Calgary, words Cavalry, Chivalrous, Calvory or Catagory/purgatory, (the greatest arena for bull riding barrel racing, horse rider censership ever). Why are you a parnsipitude? (NOT TRYING TO BE what you are)? What if you were actually talking to Jonathan Swift writing a new story about the Canadian Carniferous Sniffers of Truth vs the English nose pickers. Hi there right back at you!. U are not J Cutler Chicago Bears quarterback.

LOL, oh no...you've reeled me in!
Canada is okay. I like lots of cities and words. LOL. I don't know what I would be doing if I were actually talking to Jonathan Swift but you are in fact actually talking to Jennifer Cutler of Charleston South Carolina.
