Breathing is controversial to some.

Actually they didn’t discover the spot that makes you feel spiritual...They discovered what has to be overcome first.

This isn’t the spirituality spot; it’s the original sin spot—activity here makes one less likely to be spiritual.

seems like junk science.

so if someone votes for conservatives, the federal officials will order a spirit-ectomy of the brain.

The greatest silencing of the Me-Definer likely happens in the deepest states of meditation or prayer, said Johnstone, when practitioners describe feeling seamless with the entire universe. That is, the highest point of spiritual experience occurs when "Me" completely loses its definition.

Wouldn't that make the "me definer" spot the anti-spiritual spot?

Only controversial to those who use it for reductionism.

Otherwise it’s like saying ears are necessary for music appreciation.
