It’s been a couple of days since I posted here. The reason? Some of the places I love to spend time don’t have the best internet connection. I could feign guilt and remorse but if I’m honest I’ve had a wonderful time in the Cotswolds and regret nothing, brazen wild thing that I am. It did get me thinking though, coming as it did at a time when I’m writing about the pineal gland. Is the internet, which we so quickly came to see as a near essential part of life, a kind of prosthetic to replace an ability we’ve lost? Or perhaps a precursor to the next stage of our evolution? A concept of connection that could spur us on to developing ourselves as a kind of human hot spot?
In the previous post I’d begun exploring some of the components of the pineal gland that are baffling to the point that no one knows why they’re there. Molecular structures who’s purpose is usually to provide us with sight. Crystals that react to radio waves and the wider range of electro magnetic frequencies. These crystals are also normally involved in enabling us to hear. In these tiny components are we catching a glimpse of the workings of some kind of receiver capable of generating an inner sight and sound?
Obviously we need to look at trees. I know, but just stay with me, if only because it’s always good to look at trees. We’ve learned a lot from trees, possibly more than we realise. In this instance, they provide a great example of how nature is very connected at a much deeper level than many suspect.
The mycorrhyzal network is made up of fungi and connects plants. Via this network trees transfer nutrients to each other. In fact, according to work carried out by forest ecologist, Suzanne Simard, they exchange much more than just nutrients. The range of compounds that pass from one tree to another via the mycorrhyzal network is sufficient and idiosyncratic enough to suggest that trees are assisting and “talking” to one another, via a woodland internet.
Getting closer to the human mammal, for millenia the wise, from guides and trackers to shaman, have studied the behaviour of other species to gain clues as to what might be happening or about to happen in the wider world. From predicting weather to warning a warrior of danger. We have long acknowledged that other species don’t need such a cumbersome prosthetic as the internet as they seem somehow connected to each other and their world quite naturally.
As a species, our intellect, ingenuity and the technologies they have produced have set us apart and while I’m the first to admire the resulting achievements, I do begin to wonder just how much more could be achieved by broadening our minds a little and learning to use what might lie within the pineal gland. Just what might we be if we combined our ability to imagine, conceptualise and create with this built in “internet”.
Just the thought that there is a part of our brain that can receive electromagnetic signals, can hear in silence and see in darkness is beyond exciting. The human organism generates an electromagnetic field, our thoughts and emotions cause fluctuations in that field. We are, potentially, transmitters and receivers and we are all transmitting and receiving on similar frequencies.
It doesn’t stop there. All living organisms generate electromagnetic fields as do stars and planets, so do we actually have the potential to be fully connected at an information level to our entire universe?
Well, the pineal gland can receive electromagneitc frequencies. It contains crystals capable of transducing those to sound and light along with retinal compounds. Certainly that’s not conclusive evidence of a built in laptop with a broadband connection but if the pineal doesn’t have anything to do with a more subtle but potentially more powerful form of communication than the physical, why are such things sharing a space in a tiny room with no windows? The only other sensually aware entity we know of that can do that is a teenager with an x-box. And in that scenario the x-box, along with it’s internet connection, are essential.
So the next time you can’t get a signal or your router is playing up and you don’t know what to do. Maybe it’s an opportunity to do some work on your pineal gland. You might just be well rewarded when you become your own human hot spot.
