Neuroscience, brain & mind meets mysticism & spirituality
running time 23 mins
Section of a talk given at London's Swedenborg Hall on the 14th of OCT, 2006. Discussed is a novel fractal conception of brain organization where certain structural forms and dynamic processes are manifest in the brain at all scales and all areas. I then relate these aspects of the brain to timeless ideas from the world of mysticism, spirituality and religion. The overall idea being that cosmic processes and universal processes are being played out in the brain and human mind. Furthur it is related how the mystery of consciousness and the mystery of God are one and the same mystery. Therefore we should expect aspects of the divine to be revealed in brain anatomy and function.
