Thoughts on thoughts…
What is this thing we call consciousness? Is it a magnificent connection through the neural pathways of our brain? Does it, to the contrary, have a spiritual dimension?
I did scientific research in my youth. Some of that was in neuroscience. Some of my schooling was in neurosurgery in medical school.
My four primary areas of interest are theology, neuroscience, history and psychology. My interest in philosophy tags behind that group.
With all the sophistication in neuroscience research, we still don’t have a strong, foundational understanding of human consciousness from my view. Based on all of which I’m aware, I believe our spritual soul is our conscious and subconscious MINDS.
Religious visions have been established over time as perceptions apart from hallucination, events that are viable as well as within the confines of the mentally healthy.
