Does anyone have any insight on the metaphysical aspects of melanin? I have been studying the subject of melanin, including neuromelanin for some months now and the more I learn, the more I discover that melanin has many metaphysical correlates. The most noticeable is its connection with the energy known variously as Chi (Qi), Prana, Sekhem-Ra, etc. I have learned that it is a perfect candidate for being a conduit for Kundalini in the spinal column. This is spoken about in the book: "Why Darkness Matters" edited by Edward Bynum. I also have recognized that "they" know of this as well. This is displayed in movies like "The Matrix" (1,2 and 3), "The Dark Crystal", and a movie that was just on the SciFi Channel, "Dark Force". I believe that the more knowledge we re-gain and improve upon, concerning the true attributes of melanin and how it relates to who we are, the more we will realize our ability to be free and whole.
