The Moon’s Passage through Earth’s Magnetotail

Solar Wind - Magnetosphere Coupling (HERE)
The Earth’s magnetic field is influenced, amongst other factors, by the Moon. The Earth’s magnetotail is formed by the solar wind, which is a stream of electrons and protons ejected from the Sun. This stream of charged particles (plasma) hits the Earth with speeds of up to 1.6 million km/h. The Earth is protected to a large degree from this solar wind by the magnetic field, leading to a deflection of this particle stream, and the Earth's magnetotail extends way beyond the Moon into space. Every 27.3 days the Full Moon moves through Earth’s magnetic tail; the passage takes about six days. The Moon is not protected by an atmosphere or magnetic field that could shield it. Hence the lunar surface facing the Earth during a Full Moon is bombarded by the solar wind deflected from Earth which then in turn influences the Earth’s magnetic field again. Humans are extremely sensitive to electric field changes. Our brain can detect changes as small as one nanoampere while the voltage on the ionosphere can change as much as 25% in a few hours. The Earth’s magnetic field affects the pineal gland which was regarded by the ancients as the Third Eye and the Seat of the Soul (HERE + HERE). The inside of the gland is filled with water and has the highest blood-flow per cubic volume in our body. The pineal gland releases not only melatonin but also dimethyltryptamine (DMT) - Rick Strassmann's Spirit Molecule, a very powerful psychedelic. This is why dreams are much more intense during Full Moons.

Throughout the span of recorded human history, Pinecones have served as a
symbolic representation of Human Enlightenment, the Third Eye and the
Pineal Gland (HERE).
