The pineal gland is a bioclock sensitive to the Sun’s photoperiodic radiation.

This tiny gland, shaped like a pine cone, is a neuroendocrine transducer that converts nervous system transmissions into hormonal messages via the synthesis and secretion of melatonin.

The dawn’s early light is bright enough to act as a time cue that entrains us to Earth’s 24-hour day.

The pineal gland also acts as a “happy gland.”

It contains the harmal alkaloid 6-methoxytetrahydroharmane, which produces euphoria, mental imagery, and sexual desire.

The human pineal gland is attached to the third ventricle of the brain, and is only about the size of a pea..

In contrast, half of all the tissue inside a baby seal’s head is pineal gland.

“Melatonin is also found in human cerebrospinal fluid, its concentration in the spinal fluid of the calf is higher than in the plasma. Furthermore, the melatonin concentration of spinal fluid shows a daily rhythm.”

    “A neuroendocrine transducer is, therefore, a modified nerve cell, with neurotransmitter input and neurohormone output.”

    Sedate pain by working with the sonic and thermal digits. Stimulate pain by working with the sonic and gaseous digits. Always work from left to right, and down the left and up the right.” – Swami Nitty-Gritty

    i’ve read about attempts to stimulate endogenous dmt production using tryptophan. eating large amounts of pumpkin seeds amplifies my perception and inner life in certain ways (colours for example) but also comes with drawbacks such as lack of motivation and hints of depression.

    authoir colin wilson (super consciousnes) returns to serotonin as a possible x-factor in experiences of wholeness and synchronicities. the buddha supposedly spent a lot of his time under a fig-tree and they’re loaded with tryptophan as well :)

      Colin Wilson (1931-2013) is one of my favorite authors!

      I’m about to post a reply to your question as a blog entry (Deconstructing the Serotonin Reality Tunnel) within the hour. :)
