This series was inspired by the symbolism and vigor of ancient Sumerian, Egyptian, and Eastern cultures that have centered their society, practices, beliefs, structures and technology around the harmonic frequencies of healing and fundamental energy sources that united their resonance, of which have faded.
Corpora arenacea is a medical term used for the calcification of the pineal gland and is often used as a point of reference on x-rays when calcified.
The pineal gland is situated outside of the blood brain barrier  and also in a region where the blood brain barrier is weak, hence the cells in this region require direct contact with the blood,  allowing the gland, unlike the brain to be easily permeated and calcified by toxins such as Fluoride,  Calcium Phosphate, Calcium Carbonate, Ammonium phosphate, and Magnesium phosphate. These items are additives in food, pesticides, public water, supplements, and chemicals used in the production of meat and milk.
The pineal gland is responsible for maintaining the production of female reproductive hormones, the production of melatonin, which is an antioxidant that regulates the body’s sleep cycle, creativity, and the ability to expand state of awareness through gamma wave production when activated during mediation.
