At Which Point Soul Enters The Body?

Recommended Posts

Not Gurbani, but something to ponder over none the less.

49 days comes from an idea suggested by Rick Strassman in his excellent book ‘DMT: The Spirit Molecule’. The book describes a clinical study where DMT is injected into number of subjects and describes their experiences. Strassman proposes that DMT is produced naturally by the pineal gland in the brain and has a function in dreaming. The pineal gland becomes visible in the developing foetus at seven weeks or 49 days – at about the same time that the sex is determined. Coincidentally, Buddhists believe the soul is reincarnated 49 days after death. Strassman proposed that the individual life force enters the body with the production of DMT by the pineal gland at 49 days. A final flush of DMT as the person dies aids the transition of the soul on its way. He also describes the pineal in evolutionary older animals as a light sensitive third eye – again drawing parallels with the psychic third eye in man.
