In many myths and legends, there are three eyes. For example, Yang Jian, the God of Erlang, can see everything in the world with his third eye. In the practice of Taoism, there are also experts who have opened the gate. This kind of person will form a ball of light between the two eyebrows, and those with higher degree can turn into a third eye. The existence of the third eye is also implied in the Buddhist five eye six links. So does the third eye only exist in myths and legends? Instead, scientists have found evidence that humans have a third eye.
At the beginning of this century, a Greek archaeologist found a skull fossil in an ancient cave. After research, it was found that there was another structure similar to the orbit outside the two orbits of the skull. Later, similar structures were found in other animal fossils.
It shows the existence of the third eye. However, after a long evolution, the third eye of human has gradually become a pineal gland invisible to the naked eye. Some animals still have a third eye, such as the spotted wedge toothed lizard in New Zealand.
The pineal gland is located at the posterior and upper part of the human thalamus. It is a light red ellipsoid. According to traditional Chinese medicine, “it depends on the human brain, under Baihui acupoint, between the eyebrows, and deep behind Yintang.” It’s named because it looks like a pinecone. It is relatively developed in childhood and gradually shrinks after the age of seven. There is retinal like tissue in the pineal gland. The inner layer is composed of rod cells and optic cells, just like an eye. It is even connected to the brain layer that feels vision. Scientists also found that blind Mexican fish without eyes still use them to perceive the world. This also confirms that the pineal gland is degenerated from the eyes.
Pineal gland still plays an important role in human body. It is generally believed that it can synthesize and secrete a variety of biological glue and peptide substances, mainly regulating the function of neurosecretion and reproductive system. The function of pineal gland has a certain relationship with body metabolism, which can inhibit sexual maturation and prolong childhood.
In addition, the pineal gland can sense and respond to light signals. For example, we will be happy and energetic on sunny days. On the contrary, rainy days will be depressed, feel sleepy. This phenomenon is also closely related to melatonin secreted by pineal gland
Studies have shown that when the humidity is too high, the pineal gland in the human body will secrete a lot of pineal hormone, making the concentration of thyroid hormone and adrenaline in the body relatively low. At this time people will be listless, the human body will produce fatigue and fatigue, affect work efficiency.
