A colorful interpretation of the Eye of Horus also believed to represent the pineal gland, known to ancient wisdom keepers as the Seat of the Soul. The colors of the rainbow are added here to represent all of the reality that we perceive and what comes after and beyond that reality. The soul is thought to enter the body on the 49th day after inception via the pineal gland, the third eye, and modern science has shown that this is precisely the day when the pineal gland starts producing DMT, sometimes known as the God Molecule for it's unique effect on consciousness. At death this same organ releases great amounts of DMT flooding the body at the moment of death and the departure of the soul. Perhaps this is why people who have experienced DMT as a “psychedelic” substance have reported it as a death like experience and the most powerful moment of their lives.
