Learning more and more of course I came across "this thing called melanin". I have read so much about it, listened to lectures, and meditated on the subject. I understand the dynamics and its effects on a basic level, but what is melanin really? Is it carbon? Dr. King in his book about melanin describes its alchemaic properties and its spiritual effects, but does not describe what this molecule actually is made of. Dr. Sebi claims melanin doesn't exist but is actually carbon. So my question is, what really is this super molecule melanin?
