Some people call the pineal gland the First Eye. That’s all well and good. It makes a lot of sense since it’s the most important eye. Our ability to see out of it clearly is most critical to our psycho-spiritual development. I, however, call it the Third Eye because it’s the last of the three that we see out of clearly.
Some may say that your perception that pineal vision develops as part of a tertiary process is based on you using the artificial construct of time as a place marker during your journey of human experience. Interestingly enough, the people who say this actually validate the element of time as a tangible reality by using a word like “first” which only codifies time through the sequentialization of space-time perception. In other words if time doesn’t exist then nothing can be “first,” “second,” or “third.” It just is.
Whenever you say that something is “first” you are looking at it under the microscope of time. To say that time does not exist in one breath, and then say that something is “first” in another, betrays an unresolved anomaly in one’s reasoning. Time is not an illusion as I myself, have mistakenly stated in the past. It is very real, although there are certainly perceptions of reality that transcend the construct that we know as time. Something can be relative without it necessarily being an illusion, right? You don’t have to answer that right now, just think about it.
Time is generated by speech. Space-time perception is a byproduct of language. Time does not exist in the vacuum of outer space because there is no oxygen there. You need oxygen to mold the sounds that give form and structure to the spoken word. Verbal communication was introduced to planet Earth by individuals who have highly active time cells (T-Cells) in the hippocampus region of their brains.
The hippocampus is the campus of the Cosmic Mother Ta-Urt, who serves as the chancellor of the cerebral university that we’ve enrolled in by way of a womb. After the birth water spirits broke through to this dimension we received the word and the word gave us variations in flesh.
Time can be like a mother who cares for her young, because the more accurate that we are in mentally recording our personal experiences the more likely we are to gather the most that we can from these experiences to make better decisions in the future. Sound decision making protects us from the agonies of ignorance.
You give yourself immunity from the severities of ignorance when you look at your life experiences in their proper context. However it’s difficult to hold your personal experiences in their proper context if you do not sequence them properly in your brain.
Imagine watching a movie you’ve never seen before with every scene and every shot playing on a silver screen outside of its proper chronological sequence. It could be the most incredible movie ever made, but you will not be able to make any sense of it because you do not have the T-Cells that will allow you to process the scenes you’re watching in their correct chronological order.
What if this confusing movie I’ve just described is actually your life, which plays in your Third IMax theater at your appointed time of death? How will your soul extract the wealth of experience accumulated by your flesh over the course of a lifetime if you have not sequenced your life experiences in a coherent fashion?
This is your life...
Time can be your mommy. Some say she heals all wounds. Mommy’s Ta-Urt Cells will protect you and guide you. Get her breast milk which you will need to process the concentric cycles of change that exist within the cycles of time. Don’t bow to mommy, though, because if you do you’ll probably never get married. If you do, your marriage will fail.
What we marry is what we value, and our values must take precedent over everything including the Time construct that we filter our values through. We should strive to venerate our values and respect, but not bow to, time and its dictates. When we do otherwise, we commit emotional incest and eventually end up with a mid-life crisis.
If you came out of your mother’s womb with your “first eye” wide open, seeing and knowing, then you are a shining example for the rest of us to follow. I admire you. Sometimes I wonder whether or not people like you have wasted their time coming down to planet Earth, given that your personal evolution was already complete by the time that you came out of your mother’s womb. Then again you probably came to Earth as a messiah to save our wayward souls. All of that is really none of my business though, so I won’t overly concern myself with it.
My journey has been very different from the first eye Messiah. I’m more like the frog on the path to becoming a prince. I’ve been strengthening the eye in the center of my brain through work, sacrifice, dedication, trial, and error. I’ve enjoyed victories and made mistakes. It’s all a part of the learning process.
The god Nefertem, son of Ptah and Sekhemet, is often seen with a blossoming lotus on top of his head. A lotus opens when the sun rises, and closes when the sun goes down. The sun’s perceived rising and setting are observed through space-time perception. Our calendar is based on this careful observation of this natural phenomenon. In Kemet, the external sun was known as Ra, which is also the internal sun inside of the circuit board of man.

In ancient Kemet “Nefer” meant “Beautiful.” The word “TEM” denotes perfection or striving to attain a state of completion, which is exactly what Stevie Wonder sings about on his classic song “Higher Ground.” I’m of the humble opinion that “T.E.M.” is also an acronym for “Third Eye Max,” albeit I might be slightly biased in my assessment. The Black Sun will rise and every lotus will open. That is the future, which is a far cry from the present.
Myth is more reliable than history because it always conveys universal truths, whereas history is often “a lie agreed upon” as Napoleon once said. The Kemetic myth of Nefertem suggests that full pineal gland development is something on man’s horizon, as opposed to something he has already attained. You have something beautiful to look forward to, and it’s a beauty beyond your wildest imagination.
The mythology of ancient India offers us much insight into the development of the pineal gland. Shiva, who is also affectionately known as Tryambaka (The Third Eyed One) can consume the world with cosmic fire when he opens his Third Eye. Fire breaks things down, but so do people who make you think. They break complex subjects down by explaining things to you in a way that you can understand it. Also, you burn down the present world with your Third Eye by constantly reevaluating how you’re navigating through it.
The best thing that you can do to incinerate an unjust and evil world is to be just and righteous in how you move. This may require self introspection which involves processing our thoughts, deeds, and actions through our Third Eye.
According to ancient Indian mythology, the goddess of love and fertility, Parvati, held Shiva’s eyes closed while they were making love and the whole universe fell into darkness. At this time, a new eye started to sprout from the god’s forehead. The sages of ancient India are showing us that we must close our two windows to the outside world to cultivate the pineal gland.
They’re also telling us from their own texts, which should serve as our primary sources, that the eye in your head is the last of your three eyes to develop. Consequently, any reference to a “first eye” in the pineal gland is inconsistent with the teachings of the early cultures who told us about the pineal gland and its powers of perception. Like I said earlier, that does not mean that the appellation lacks merit.

We must go within ourselves through introspection to achieve pineal perception. We must ask ourselves questions and not take things that we see with the two eyes on our face at face value. When we dig deeper we activate the heart which is satellite, or better yet, a “saddle of light,” which we put on our seahorses to navigate this thing called life. Answers to questions begin to stream into our heads as a powerful live feed.
As long as we live in a world where unarmed Black men are gunned down and murdered by police before they reach the prime of their lives, we cannot, in good conscience, say that the Third Eye is the First Eye. As long as computer keyboard activists rail against the evils of society on social networks using fake names because they live in constant fear that they will be discovered and fired by their employers for telling the truth, then we cannot, in good conscience, say that the Third Eye is the First Eye. I say this because we have yet to make the “First Eye” PRIMARY in our everyday lives.
By reading and EXPERIENCING through our two eyes we have a unique opportunity to grow up and change this culture in the future, though. Until then, Third Eye Max is the goal. Nefer T.E.M.
