A human pineal gland is the size of a grain of rice.

It’s an asset to space travel.

That’s why birds are so resistant to pineal calcification.

Equatorial animals eventually lose their pineal glands.

Polar animals grow their pineal glands.

Three things help preserve the human pineal gland …

1) jumping on a trampoline

2) increasing cold weather tolerance

3) shifting the emphasis on orgasm from phallic to cephalic anatomy

Gerald J. Little & M. M. Bryden (“The Pineal Gland in Newborn Southern Elephant Seals, Mirounga leonina,” Journal of Pineal Research, Volume 9, Issue 2, September 1990) wrote …

“In the newborn southern elephant seal the pineal gland is very large, and both pineal and plasma melatonin concentration is elevated. The pineal gland was investigated during the first 24 h, and up to 20 days of age, in elephant seal pups. A primary aim of this investigation was to determine whether there are obvious ultrastructural characteristics of pinealocytes that are exhibiting extraordinarily high levels of activity. Blood and pineal glands were collected from thirty seven pups of known age which were sampled at random from early September to early November (1985) at Macquarie Island. The pineal gland is large (mean weight, 4.71 ± 0.35 gm, range 1–9.3 gm) and actively secreting melatonin at birth. Melatonin concentrations were extremely variable, yet very high in pups during the first 24 h post-partum. Mean melatonin plasma concentration for pups 0–24 h was 17632.8 ± 5723.8 pmol/l (4090.8 ± 1327.9 pg/ml), ranging from 126 pmol/l (29 pg/ml) to 297000 pmol/l (68904 pg/ml). Electron microscopic examination did not reveal any marked changes in pinealocyte ultrastructure suggestive of increased secretory activity during this period. The large and extremely active pineal gland in newborn southern elephant seal suggests that it is actively involved in thermoregulation.”

It’s been known for at least a hundred years that pineal secretion inhibits precocious sexual development. (See the Journal of the Kansas Medical Society, Volume 17, 1917; Endocrinology and Metabolism, 1922; Structure and Function of the Epiphysis Cerebri, 1963; etc.)

In other words, the pineal gland and its melatonin are anti-gonadal.

    According to Green Facts: Facts on Health and the Environment, 2014 …

    “Behavioural experiments on adult Pacific salmon (Oncorhynchus sp.) in soft-water rivers indicate that changes in water chemistry resulting from an increase in the fluoride concentration to 0.5 mg/litre can adversely affect migration; migrating salmon are extremely sensitive to changes in the water chemistry of their river of origin.”

    Hermann Pohl (“Spectral Composition of Light as a Zeitgeber for Birds Living in the High Arctic Summer,” Physiology & Behavior, Volume 67, Issue 3, September 1999) wrote …

    “The hypothesis was tested whether periodic changes in spectral composition of light are an effective zeitgeber for synchronization (entrainment) of circadian rhythms of birds breeding in the high arctic summer. Two palearctic passerine birds, the brambling (Fringilla montifringilla) and the common redpoll (Carduelis f. flammea), which both breed during summer at latitudes above the Arctic Circle and migrate to temperate zone latitudes for wintering, were studied. To investigate the effect of daily alterations in light spectrum, bramblings were tested under 24-h cycles of fluorescent lights of different color temperatures (12 h at ca 5,000 K and 12 h at ca 2,500 K) and energy ratios varying between 16:1 and 0.3:1. Entrainment of activity rhythms occurred at energy ratios of 1:1 (in all seven birds tested) and 0.8:1 (in three of seven birds tested) with activity mostly within the “blue” phase (ca 5,000 K). Light cycles alternating between narrow spectral ranges of blue (max. at 440 nm) and red (max. at 650 nm) and energy ratios of 1:1 and 1.1:1 (equivalent to ratios of photons flux of ca 0.67:1 and 0.73:1, respectively) were also effective in entraining the bramblings’ activity rhythms (8 and 9 of 11 birds, respectively) with activity occurring primarily during the red phase. The activity rhythms of most common redpolls tested also entrained to blue:red light cycles (B:R 16.5:7.5 h) with equal energies during the blue and red phase (equivalent to a photons flux ratio of ca 0.67:1). The results support the hypothesis that passerine birds breeding in the arctic during summer may use the daily changes in spectal composition of sunlight as a zeitgeber for synchronizing physiological and behavioral rhythms, if changes in light intensity are not a reliable environmental cue.”

    According to Hayes’ Handbook of Pesticide Toxicology, Volume 1 (edited by Robert Krieger), 2010 …

    “Examples of the influence of pesticides on the circadian rhythms or the effect of circadian rhythms on the toxicity of pesticides are not common, but Nicolau (1982) reported on the effects of pesticides on the circadian time regarding the structure of the thyroid, adrenal, and the testis in rats. Four herbicides, a fungicide, and two insecticides were tested. A wide variety of rhythm alterations was found. There was significant desynchronization of thyroid and adrenal gland functions. In contrast, there was almost no effect on the rhythms in the testis.”

    According to Biological Trace Element Research, Summer 2008 …

    “The content of chemical elements in rainwater is a suitable indirect indicator of its presence in airborne dust, sometimes referred to as rain fallout. Rainwater is considered a suitable monitor for environmental or natural pollution. The yearly content of chemical elements in rainwater may be considered as a good indicator for determining the influence of these environmental factors on the human body. We decided to investigate the relationship between chemical elements in rainwater and the frequency of hospitalizations for arterial hypertension, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and psoriasis. There is a mild correlation between zinc and cadmium and cases of arterial hypertension. For obstructive pulmonary disease, there is a strong correlation with the content of potassium, calcium, iron, manganese, lead and nickel, and with chloride, sulfide, total nitrogen, and nitrites. There is also a mild correlation with magnesium, zinc, copper, cadmium and chromium, and with ammonium nitrogen. In cases of hospitalization for psoriasis, a correlation was revealed with such elements as potassium, ammonium nitrogen, and phosphorus.”

    Hi Atom,
    how do you germinate an almond ?


  10. September 17, 2014 @ 11:31 pm atomb

    Apologies! Technical difficulties my answers to disappear. :/

    I’m on the “crystal” side of the aisle.

    You can germinate an almond by soaking it.

    I’m on the “crystal” side of the dialogue, but, being a relativist, it’s always open for discussion.

    Some authorities say Kundalini is an implant of the “organ Kundabuffer.”

    Others cite Kundalini as a metaphor for the personal ego, not the “horrifying tail of Satan.”
