Abstract

Shaped like a pinecone, the enigmatic pineal gland that is deeply seated in the brain has ignited the imagination of scholars and philosophers as well as spirituals from various cultures throughout generations and has been dubbed the "third eye" and "the seat of the soul" by Rene Descartes and was conceptualized as a tranquilizing organ.
