In-Depth Exploration of the Mysteries of the Eye of Horus

In our previous article , which I invite you to read before diving into this depth, we introduced the mysteries surrounding the Eye of Horus and its potential link with the pineal gland.

The Pineal Gland: a true internal third eye

pineal gland treatise on man descartes

“Seat of the soul” for Descartes, the pineal gland is in reality an internal eye. Descartes had depicted its supposed functioning in his book “Treatise on Man” through several plates, an example of which you can see above. The pineal gland is internal, and interacts with both eyeballs.

It is considered a sort of third eye among lower vertebrates due to its photoreceptor functions which have remained active. In mammals, including humans, the pineal gland has lost this photoreceptor function. We therefore speak of this gland as the “third eye”.

The Pineal Gland, creator of Melatonin and DMT


The isolation, in 1959, by an American researcher, AB Lerner, of a substance released by the pineal gland, called melatonin, marked the beginning of a new era in research into the physiology of this organ. Two important results date from this time:

– melatonin synthesis is controlled by day-night alternation;

– melatonin is involved in the control of reproductive cycles in mammals.


DMT is a psychotropic molecule naturally present in several plants and animals, including humans. According to Rick Strassman's research on DMT, which he calls the "mind molecule", it seems that the pineal gland is capable of producing it, in tiny quantities when we dream, and in larger quantities when we die. There is a real mystery about this molecule.

The pineal gland and calcification

Calcification is the greatest danger facing the pineal gland because this gland is made up of apatite crystals , which vibrate according to the electromagnetic waves captured. The modern lifestyle heavily exposed to pollution of all kinds (electromagnetic, water, air, etc.) promotes the calcification of our pineal gland. The more the pineal is calcified, the less melatonin it secretes.

After this exploration of the functioning of the pineal gland, let's return to the mysteries of ancient Egypt and the eye of Horus.

The Horus Osiris Isis triad

The Osiris Isis Horus triad

Let's return to the founding myth of the Eye of Horus . The Sky God was the son of Isis and Osiris. Legend has it that Osiris was killed by Seth, his brother, the god of violence and chaos. Isis, wife of Osiris, was dying of grief but was determined to recover the 14 body parts of her husband cut off by Seth in order to prevent any resurrection of Osiris. She succeeded and asked Thoth, Anubis and Nephthys to help her resurrect him. Osiris came back to life, but Seth, furious, killed him a second time. Isis had managed to conceive a child from her husband before his second death, and hid her pregnancy from the terrible God. She gave birth to Horus , who grew up developing a desire to avenge his father's death.

The battle between Horus and Seth

Horus Seth fights, Thoth healing Horus eye

During one of their battles, Seth wounded Horus, took his eye and tore it into six pieces . Thoth, the god of writing and magic, with the help of the goddess Hathor, managed to find the pieces and heal Horus and his eye. It is from this mythical episode that the legend of the Eye of Horus was born.

The Eye of Horus and the structure of our brain

This symbol has an astonishing connection with the anatomy of our brain, even more so with the anatomy of the brain as it was described in ancient times. When the Eye of Horus is superimposed on a sagittal image of the human brain, it appears that each part corresponds to the anatomical location of a particular human sensorimotor.

Mathematics and the Eye of Horus

But that's not all. Artistically, the Eye of Horus is made up of six different parts. As a symbol, the eye contains six parts which have been assigned a series of numerical values with a numerator of 1 and dominants to the power of 2.

The 6 parts of the eye represent series 1/2, 1/4, 1/8, 1/16, 1/32 and finally 1/64; Egyptian scribes used these fractions, which we call Heqat fractions, to make calculations, particularly to calculate the volumes of cereals.

Right side of eye is 1/2 (smell)

The pupil is 1/4 (sight)

The eyebrow is 1/8 (thought and wisdom)

The left side of the eye is 1/16 (hearing)

The curved tail is 1/32 (taste)

The tear is 1/64 (touch)

These parts of the Eye of Horus would correspond to our five senses , except for one part which is associated with thought and wisdom.

In the Eye of Horus , this part covers all the others, it is the eyebrow.

The addition of these fractions amounts to 63/64, the missing part (1/64) would represent the magical power that Thoth, the god of scribes, would have placed in the eye of Horus when he healed him. Could this missing part be our pineal gland?

To go further into this fascinating subject and explore each part of the eye and its correspondence with the neuroanatomical functions of our senses, you can browse this article "The Eye of Horus: The Connection Between Art, Medicine, and Mythology in Ancient Egypt" which combines scientific and historical research (in English) which I used to write this article. A suggested additional resource to explore is listed at the end of the article.

The Eye of Horus, initiatory symbol

In reality, the eye of Horus is an initiatory symbol full of depth.

It depicts the areas of the brain that allow every human to achieve enlightenment. We have already mentioned that it is also called the all-seeing eye or the third eye which is represented by the pineal gland located in the center of the brain.

It remains dormant until the soul reaches a certain spiritual level, and care must be taken to take care of it by avoiding pollution which destroys it.

The ancient Egyptians believed that it was essential to nourish our limbic brain so that the third eye would lead us to spiritual awakening.

The Blue Lotus, a sacred food for the third eye?

Some researchers suggest that blue lotus could have beneficial effects on the pineal gland, in particular by promoting its decalcification. We saw above that the pineal gland produces melatonin and DMT , and that its calcification could prevent the production of these substances.

Recent scientific studies have explored the chemical components of blue lotus: nuciferine and apomorphine . These studies highlight properties that could potentially influence the pineal gland and its functions.

The ancient Egyptians are known to have used the blue lotus, and it is often depicted placed on the subjects' foreheads, at the location of the pineal gland. Ancient writings lead us to believe that it was consumed in the form of ritual wine. It is also alcohol which makes it possible to extract the active chemical components of the Blue Lotus.

My personal experience

I am fascinated by ancient Egyptian culture, for me it is the last great civilization that existed. They had a living vision of the world, placing beings such as animals, plants and stars in grandeur and beauty . I love this way of living, aspiring to beauty, respectful of all beings, so I try to understand the legacy they left us.

After my documented research, part of which I share with you in this article, my personal experience over several years with this sacred flower leads me to think that the Blue Lotus is a sacred food for our pineal gland. It awakens us to our true being , gently accompanies us on our journey towards our soul.

Although the mysteries of the Eye of Horus and the effects of the blue lotus on the pineal gland remain subject to debate, exploring these fascinating connections between the ancient and the modern offer an intriguing perspective.
