The Kundalini symbol is also known in Greek as the caduceus and is the universal sign for medicine, often linked with the god Hermes who is the Greek deification of Djehuti (Thoth, the time-traveling ibis-headed god known for bringing writing, knowledge and wisdom from before our existence). The staff is reminiscent of our spinal column and the interlaced snakes can be interpreted as a double helix or genetic DNA structure. The pinecone contains the seeds of the coniferous pine tree, a metaphor for immortality, enlightenment, or higher forms of consciousness due to its highly potent medicinal benefits and ability to live through all seasons. When looking at either end of a pinecone, a natural spiral pattern forms, which is the symbol of the "Flower of Life.” This symbol was even seen behind the Temple of Seti I in Abydos in the Osirian Temple, first discovered by Katrina Raphaell:
“[The Flower of Life] ...contains within its proportions every single aspect of life there is. It contains every single mathematical formula, every law of physics, every harmony in music, every biological life form right down to your specific body. It contains every atom, every dimensional level, absolutely everything that’s within waveform universes.” (Melchizedek, The Ancient Secret of the Flower of Life Vol. 1, pg.29)
In esoterism, the pinecone is a quintessential symbol for the “third eye” or pineal gland that is part of the thalamus within the limbic system of the brain. The limbic system, second or mammalian brain exists in all mammals, it’s responsible for language, emotions, and memory and still widely remains a mystery to this day. This piece is interesting and leads us to raise questions about the pineal (French pinéal, literally "like a pine cone," from Latin pinea "pine cone,") and its striking resemblance to the Eye of Ra & Horus (photo included above).
