Scientists refer to the pineal gland as the atrophied third eye. Indeed, it, along with the pituitary, is the third eye chakra or energy center, but are more dormant than atrophied. According to Max Heindels, in the distant past, man was in touch with the inner worlds through an activated pineal and pituitary gland. Considered the most powerful and highest source of ethereal energy available to humans, the third eye has always been important in initiating psychic powers (e.g. clairvoyance and seeing auras). Manly traces the historical significance of the gland and its spiritual value.
This is a book where you need to be able to flip pages, to be able to see pictures and diagrams. Not just for listening.

This piece is more of an essay than a book or story. Very low level ideas about the pituitary gland and it's likelihood of being the third eye referred to by mystics from all traditions.
There are references to the glands origin, possible mythic references, uses or activation in humans. And it manages to contradict itself and be interesting yet vague in the classic style of all Esoterica.
Any actual information must be translated from the narrators hopelessly inept pronunciation of nearly every important name or concept mentioned. I thought "Oh, he meant alchemist" and "oh, he means Kabbala" and "if he mispronounces Rene Descartes name again I will scream," so it's good that this piece is short!
