How Humans Lost Our Chance at a Third Eye

9 posts in this topic

Lizards have a little dot at the top of their heads that is called a "parietal eye." This eye is not as complex or as useful as the two in the front of their heads, but it does react to light. Are they eventually going to have a third eye? No. It's just a vestigial trait.

In fact, it looks like most animals — including humans — had a chance at a third eye, and we blew it.

Supposedly the pineal gland is the third eye, yes? I've heard that a few times. Won't do us much good though since it's typically heavily flourided up with subsequent calcification.

It would be very handy to have 360 degree vision in Supermarket car parks.

A third eye at the back of your head would suit a better service.
