Story behind the song
The Epiphysis or " Third Eye", is the partially dormant pineal gland, which resides between the two hemispheres of the brain. Various types of vertebrates can actually sense light via a third parietal eye,a structure associated with the pineal gland—which serves to regulate their circadian rhythms, and for navigation, as it can sense the polarization of light. The third eye is localized in the pituitary body and the pineal gland. It was said that in the far past, when man was in touch with the inner worlds, these organs were his means of ingress thereto, and they will again serve that purpose at a later stage. According to this view, they were connected with the involuntary or sympathetic nervous system and to regain contact with the inner worlds (to reawaken the pituitary body and the pineal gland) it is necessary to establish the connection of the pineal gland and the pituitary body with the cerebrospinal nervous system. It was said that when that is accomplished, man will again possess the faculty of perception in the higher worlds (i.e. clairvoyance), but on a grander scale than it was in the distant past, because it will be in connection with the voluntary nervous system and therefore under the control of his will...... In Greek mythology, we have heard about the single-eyed giant, Cyclops Polyphemus, son of Poseidon and Thoosa ,who battled Ulysses and whose name means "abounding in songs and legends". Polyphemus first appears as a savage man-eating giant in the ninth book of Homer's Odyssey, but interpretations by present day Classical writers link his name with the nymph Galatea and present him in a much different light .We also have the mystical Eye of Shiva, representing intuition and direct cosmic vision with concepts associated with religious visions, states of enlightenment and clairvoyance.These mythical traditions feature interpretations of science with ancient sources in light of theosophy and can give us a new perspective on humanity's past and the third eye. In Hinduism and Buddhism, the third eye is a symbol of enlightenment (see moksha and nirvana). In the Indian tradition, it is referred to as the gyananakashu, "the eye of knowledge", which is the seat of the "teacher inside" or antar-guru. The third eye is the ajna chakra (sixth chakra) also known as brow chakra or brow center. This is commonly denoted in Indian and East Asian iconography with a dot, eye or mark on the forehead of deities or enlightened beings, such as Shiva, the Buddha, or any number of yogis, sages and bodhisattvas . A common misconception , urban legend or myth about the dot or bindi in the western world is that only married Hindu women wear red bindis as a symbol of wedlock. The bindi symbol is also called the "Third Eye" or ""Eye of Wisdom", or, in Buddhism, the urna. ......In Hinduism, it is believed that the opening of Shiva's third eye causes the eventual destruction of the physical universe.....(Painting of Polyphemus,by Johann Heinrich Wilhelm Tischbein,1802 ).
