    #8518548 - 06/13/08 05:23 AM (15 years, 11 months ago)

i saw a picture somewhere that the eye of osiris(eye of ra?) was actually a symbol of the pineal gland. are there any theories or myths about this?

I'm not in the knowledge of the mythology surrounding the symbol of the giant eye, maybe a symbol of an all seeing eye and we're all part of the all or whole, just a little guess.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eye_of_horus

the all seeing eye is a different thing, mostly conspiracy bullshit. anyway could the eye of horus be the symbol of the third eye, that possesses "divine" knowledge not available to the profane?

The eye of horus isn't usually seen as the third eye. The egyptians saw it as a sign of sacred protection.

look up a video by david wilcock called '2012 enigma'.  it's all about the pineal gland.  supposedly the symbology regarding it is the pinecone.  that's why there is a giant pinecone in the courtyard of the vatican.

More than likely it is merely stylistic, otherwise, it is a pinecone that is affixed to the staff that Dionysus carries. Dionysian symbolism was confounded with some Roman artistic representations of Christ (a clean-shaven, youthful Jesus) found in Roman catacombs. Whereas Bacchus was the Roman, mature male version of Dionysus, Dionysus has several things (including a birthday of 12/25) with Jesus. God of wine, female followers, dismemberment death which parallels flagrum/crucifixion death of Jesus, a god of resurrection and other mythic points of intersection.

Like Tibetan Buddhism, it was the heart which was conceived of as the 'seat of the mind,' despite the calculations and thinking that the brain does so well. The Egyptians didn't think enough of the brain as an organ to remove it from the cranium and commit it to canopic jars like the liver, lungs, intestines or stomach, or replace it with a scarab as they did for the heart. Introducing a slender instrument prior to mummification, they 'whisked' the brain to liquid so that it ran out of the nose.

It was Rene Descartes who attributed spiritual importance to the organelle Pineal, and late 19th century occultists. The Egyptians did not. This is a case of retroactively attributing late values to an ancient Egyptian people. Even the attribution of the pineal to the Ajna chakra is not some ancient Ayurvedic secter but rather modern information retroactively affixed to a still existent mystical physiology. The eyes of Ra, Osirus or Horus (often interchanged depending upon which kingdom and which period the mythology of each deity was prevalent) all have significance in Egyptian myth (e.g., the battle between Horus and Set).
