[anatomy] The Pineal gland, Epiphasis or the "third eye" is a small endocrine gland located between the two hemispheres of the brain which produces melatonin, serotonin and the hallucinogen chemical DMT [dimethyltryptamine], which is released in our bodies mostly when we're born and when we die, but also a little bit when we're dreaming.
2. [zoology] The earliest larval state of the Velella velella - also known as the Purple Sailor or By-the-wind-sailor, a type of jellyfish that sails upon the surface of the ocean, experiencing the world with a different perspective, as its head is upside down.
