PLACING THE PINEAL
Cayce's medical clairvoyance can
hardly be disputed in view of the nearly 9,000 readings given on the
physical illnesses of people - and the subsequent validation of so
many of them. However, clairvoyance takes many forms, and I was
fascinated by one that I came across not too long ago. Do you
know, for instance, how the pineal gland is connected to the brain?
I did a good deal of reading before I came across that little-discussed
fact. I don't think I learned it in medical school at all -
in fact. I’m not sure when it was anatomically discovered.
It is highly unlikely that Cayce could ever have had access to that
particular bit of information. In 1928, however, he gave a reading
in which he discussed the pineal as a functioning gland and pinned
down its neural connections. Here's what he said, in part: "...
also that of the pineal gland's connection with the brain forces in
the 1st and 2nd cervical ..." (5691-2)
From the texts, one finds that anatomical studies
have shown that the pineal gland, although lying in close proximity to
the brain, almost surrounded by the brain tissue, has no connection to
the brain except through the superior cervical ganglion of the autonomic
nervous system - the ganglion paralleling the first three cervical segments
of' the spinal cord. It is the little items like this that impress
me most dramatically about Cayce's clairvoyance and his insight into the
