In my original article, published 2011 for a content publishing site called Factoidz, which then later was renamed, Knoji, I discussed how the Piezoelectric effect relates to the human brain and electromagnetic energies within and outside the human body that pertain to extra sensory perception and energetic sensitivity. The Pineal Gland has been described as the “Seat of the Soul”, the “Third Eye”, “Eye of Shiva”, “Eye of Dangma”, and is associated with the corresponding “Brow Chakra (Ajna Chakra).
The following article is an updated revised edition.
Physiologically, the Pineal Gland, a pine cone shaped photoneuroendocrine organ, is a neoroendocrine transducer that is approximately the size of a raisin. Environmental light moves through the retina and entrains the Pineal Gland’s circadian rhythms by way of the hypothalamus and sympathetic nervous system. It is responsible for producing Melatonin which influences sexual development and regulates the sleep cycles in the human brain and body. More specifically, the Pineal gland is responsible for converting Serotonin into Melatonin and is the only gland in the body that does so. It is the first distinguishable gland present in the brain and is recognizable within three weeks gestation of fetal development.
Inside the Pineal Gland are Calcite microcrystals consisting of Calcium, Carbon and Oxygen that produce bioluminescence; a “cold” light that produces light without heat, ranging in the blue-green part of the visible light spectrum. In deep sea marine life that uses bioluminescence in the same way, we can look forward to more emphasis on developing the Pineal Gland for transparency within the cellular tissue of the human body. For example, there have been ongoing studies in labs with animals such as rats in which bioluminescent imaging is able to detect cancer or abnormal cell growth in comparison with thermal imaging that makes the study and conclusions more efficient and precise.
The Calcite microcrystals are said to have their own Piezoelectric effect that is responsive to electromagnetic energies outside the physical body, and can also produce it’s own electromagnetic energy. A new form of bio-mineralization has been studied in the human Pineal Gland using scanning electron microscopy and energy dispersive spectroscopy. In other words, a Piezoelectric effect means that a crystal or mineral has it’s own electromagnetic frequency but can break cycle and pattern, and adopt different or new electromagnetic frequencies. It becomes responsive to its external environment, and can repeat and project the same frequencies it adopts from its external environment.
A study conducted in Israel by the Department of Chemical Engineering through the Ben-Gurion University of the Negev in Sheva, these tiny microcrystals were noted to have a texture that may be noncentrosymmetric because of the structural organization of the sub-unit, even though the single crystals do have a center of symmetry. This is also similarly noted in a PubMed publication in 2002, written by Wiley-Liss, in which the microcrystals are said to have cubic, cylindrical, and hexagonal crystal shapes with rough sharp edges. And it has been observed that crystallographic symmetry breaks, which leads to Piezoelectricity, similar to Otoconia, which refers to the calcite crystals inside the inner ear.
Among many results, it is discovered that the calcite microcrystals would have Piezoelectric properties with excitability in the frequency range of mobile communications which brings into question the entire spectrum of energy waves we encounter every day that could, in the long term, create morphological change on cellular membranes of related cells. What this means, is that devices of mobile communications such as Cell Phones, which breach the blood-brain barrier, can directly influence the state and frequency of the Pineal Gland. It can alter and manipulate frequencies inside the human brain. The results can be subtle, or catastrophic. Interruptions and alterations of human function can affect anything from sleep cycles, emotional or psychological nature of dreams, mood, temperament, sexual function, and even pain or psychosomatic sensations registered by the central nervous system.
Another note-worthy observation is that Calcite itself is regarded as one of the most attractive minerals to trap heavy metals and radionuclides during coprecipitation and growth. This means that our Pineal Gland is extremely sensitive to exposure of radioactive materials, heavy metal contaminants, and environmental pollution. Toxic exposure levels have drastic effects on the health and regulation of the Pineal Gland. This is critical, considering the Pineal Gland is the regulator that governs over all other regulators in the body. It is one of the most important organs to govern general homeostasis.
It has become increasingly controversial as to whether or not direct excessive exposure to Infrared energy waves on the brain, and especially Pineal Gland, have devastating consequences. In 1992, according to author Preston B. Nichols who wrote The Montauk Project, it was disclosed that in the 1960’s, military personnel from the Air Force were working on the Sage Radar project on a decommissioned military base, Montauk. It was reported that by changing the pulse duration and frequency of the radar that used a middle infrared band of energy waves, they could change the general mood of the people on the base. This is a very simple condensed conclusion.
The Montauk Project has suddenly received a sweeping amount of attention the past couple of years, and Fact Checkers have deemed this information to be fictional and erroneous. Part of the reason for this to gain attention has been the increasing usage of Infrared energy for light therapy on patients who have sustained a Traumatic Brain Injury, or people struggling with Anxiety, Depression, or other ailments. Conflicting reports have surfaced about the efficacy of such treatments, and the value is offers to the healing and medical community.
With that said, as mentioned prior, the Pineal Gland produces bioluminescent light without heat, ranging in the blue-green part of the visible light spectrum. Exposing the Pineal Gland to opposing light waves that do produce heat, for an extended period of time, would be expected to result in a change in its natural and optimal function, even for the short term.
Infrared energy waves emit lower frequency waves on the visible light spectrum because they have a longer wave length. This longer wavelength produces a slower, more dense, energy emission. Higher frequency waves such as those in the green, blue, violet, and ultraviolet range, emit higher frequency waves with shorter wave lengths. This shorter wavelength produces a faster, less dense, energy emission. Density, or the lessening of it, in terms of energy waves, have been shown to alter and influence one’s mental, emotional, and sometimes physical state of well being.
In recent years, there have been many articles and accounts of concern regarding the increasing calcification of the Pineal Gland, and it’s surmised detriment to the health and function of the gland. Following, advice to put urgent attention towards decalcification attempts of the Pineal Gland have gained a lot of traction. What has not been noted for comparison, is that one of the mineral building blocks in Calcite Microcrystals is Calcium, as mentioned earlier in the article. If we are not careful in our attempt to decalcify our Pineal Gland, we may inadvertently damage the very crystals in our brain that are responsible for our bioluminescence and Psychic Receptivity. Balance and further exploration is needed to fully understand what role we can play in the health and healing of this crucial part of our brain.
In a 2019 article, Calcification and Activation of the Pineal Gland, it is noted that approximately 70% of the aged 30+ adult population has visible pineal calcification, leading many scientists to deem it normal, idiopathic, and physiologic. However, large amounts of calcification disrupt normal melatonin secretion and are associated with aging and neurodegeneration. The tipping point between natural, age-related and pathological, neurodegenerative calcification (also called acervuli or brain dust) is unclear.
Because calcification decreases pineal secretion of melatonin and is associated with sleep disturbances, oxidative stress, and accelerated aging, its presence in 70% of the middle adult population is concerning if we wish to extend our lifespans. Aging is a normal process, but steps can be taken to slow the rate at which it occurs.
