In scientific research, it has long been known that the brain responds to visual images.
For example, in experiments where heat sensors are placed on both hands,
and a person is told to suggest in words over and over to
themselves that the right hand is hot and the left is cold, no changes
in temperature occur.
However, when this same person is told to visualize the right hand
holding a hot potato and the left hand a cold ice cube,
immediately temperature sensors register the right hand getting hot
and the left cold.
Likewise, it has long been known that the eyes are exposed nerves, the
only exposed nerve endings in the body.
Eyes are the endings of the optic nerve, which is directly connected to
the pineal, pituitary and hypothalimus glands.
The pineal gland contains almost 20,000 psychoactive neurotransmitters,
which are consciousness altering substances much stronger than any
other known substances found in nature or in the pharmaceutical industry.
The pineal gland has rods and cones, just like the eyeball, and
responds to visual stimuli in dramatic ways,
regardless of whether or not the visual stimuli is something perceived
by the eyes or is a visual image
produced in the imagination such as mentioned above in the heat
It is based on this information that the amazing value of visual art
throughout history can be understood.
Certain paintings, such as the Mona Lisa, command millions of dollars
in value, and are acclaimed worldwide by people of all cultures.
Through the works of Carl G. Jung, the father of transpersonal
psychology, it was revealed that mandalas have amazing power to heal
This is also the basis of Yantra Yoga in India, the yoga of visual
images as a pathway to spiritual enlightenment.
