This is the forum for all who are interested in the theory of what may happen to consciousness at the point of death as explained in the books 'Is There Life After Death - The Extraordinary Science Of What Happens When You Die' and The Daemon.
Manly P. Hall's short section on the pineal gland from his book Man the Grand Symbol of the Mysteries" and there are certain echoes here that I need to follow up.
Research over the past 10 years into the pineal gland and its possible connection with a psi-conducive state of consciousness (Roney Dougal, 1986 & 1989), has recently become linked with research on the connection between the earth's magnetic field (EMF) and psi awareness (Persinger, 1988a; Roney - Dougal, 1988). This connection is explored with particular reference to neurochemical research into the effect of the EMF on pineal gland activity. Basically, the pineal gland makes the hormone melatonin and an endogenous hallucinogen (6-MeOTHBC) that possibly causes a psi-conducive state of consciousness. It also has enzymes which affect serotonin so as to produce a variety of possible hallucinogens. The functioning of the pineal gland is affected by the EMF. Thus the production of melatonin, 6-MeOTHBC and the serotonin hallucinogens, is affected by variations in the EMF, and this could well be related to variations in a psi-conducive state of consciousness, resulting in ostensible psychic occurrences. The implications from this synthesis are far-reaching, and those concerning our understanding of dowsing and certain anomalous phenomena are mentioned.

The chakras serve as our bridge between Matter and Spirit, helping us evolve in our experience of life between a predominantly selfish existence at the lowest chakra, and one that is purely selfless and spiritual at the highest. It should be the goal of all spiritual disciplines to assist us in moving toward the higher end, where we can experience a greater sense of joy in life. It is this challenge of moving our consciousness up the “ladder of being,” that constitutes the transformation of consciousness.
