Plato speaks of the divine seed which resides in the brain, which flows down the spinal column towards the sexual organs. He discusses two hidden channels which flow alongside the spinal column, which intertwine with each other at the throat and the heart knots(Chakras).
The Pythagorean and Orphic schools taught that semen comes from brain and is of one substance with the spinal marrow. Homer mentions that the cerebro-spinal fluid engkephalos was endowed with life-power. Alcmaeon of Croton stated that “holy tube” conducted engkephalos from the brain to the base of the spine, where it becomes semen. Diogenes of Appolonia, as quoted by Aristotle, is also said to have referred to the two auxiliary channels beside the spinal column.
Osiris, the god of afterlife and the Christ of Egypt, is said to ascend to heaven over the spinal column of his mother, the goddess Nut, the vertebrae being used as the rungs of a ladder. This is similar to the Yogic concept of Enlightenment.
The symbol of caduceus seen below, a staff entwined by two serpents who intersect at five points, occurs in Greek mythology as well as in Mesopotamian sculptures. In Sumerian examples, the caduceus is depicted within the human body indicating a strong resemblance to the concept of Kundalini.
Fu Xi, the Christ of China , and The Taoist alchemists taught techniques to force the semen up the spine to the brain, where it was expected to nourish fields of cinnabar, leading to the alchemical transformation of the mind and the rise of the kundalini serpent .
The story of Adam and Eve is also a tale of the serpent as well , in the Zohar it states that Samael( translated in Hebrew as both the poison and perfume of god i.e. To the EGOs poison and the perfume of enlightenment ) rode down on the serpent (mothergoddess kundalini ) and spoke to Eve about the tree of life and also the knowledge of good and evil . Samael being the judgment of god upon the fires of the kundalini energy, watched Eve participate in her own downfall through her own temptation of fornication, the forbidden fruit which many cultures have understood as sexual energy and the kundalini (the fall of humanity and our currentstate
