Science can only measure that which is measurable. We should not expect “science” to aid us in understanding or proving things that are easily proved by philosophy and intellect. A great book, which explains Aquinas, is Theology And Sanity by FJ Sheed. It’s the only book you’ll ever need besides the Bible.
Science can only measure that which is measurable.......very true. But you need the right measurement tool. That’s why I consider psychology a pseudo science at best.
The problem with measuring cognitive function is the bias of the human brain processing any stimulus perceived by the sensory receptors. In short, a person thinks about what they are experiencing and then must communicate it based upon their prior experiences.
I have found that Karl Pribram of Stanford University was correct in his theory that memories are stored as holograms. Problem has been, all the neursocientists are using a reductionist approach and searching the synapses of the brain thinking that they will find memories encoded much the way a hard drive stores encoded data on a computer. Memories are no more “in” the brain than the music you hear on a radio is in the radio. The brain acts as an antenna interacting with the soul. I do presentations where I take a total stranger who I know nothing about and without touching them in any way, without either of us saying a word, and with the person’s eyes being closed (thus bypassing their sensory receptors), I stand back about ten to fifteen feet from the person and tell them details about events in their life that have occurrred since birth. How, by stimulating the memories that are stored at the soul level a person’s physical body moves in response to me. It’s all logical and scientific. I did a presentation for a select group in Washington DC about a year ago and it freaked them out. Their response was laughable...”People aren’t ready for this yet!” “They like to think their thoughts are private.” Did the same thing in December at Harvard Medical School. Had a group of MD’s accuse me of hiring private investigators to find out about them the details were so accurate. I laughed as they were volunteers out of a group and I didn’t even know their name. It’s a very simple process to understand how the soul interacts with the physical body and easily demonstrated in a scientific controlled setting.
This same simple process explains how mind control works. Also, how charisma works, and hypnosis. Why people select the type of religion they choose to practice. Even why personality develops the way it does. All I’m saying is... Yes, always be skeptical, but keep your mind open. There is no such thing as a miracle, it is merely science that we don’t understand yet.
This book is worthy of “ the only book youll ever need besides the Bible.”
The Physics of Consciousness: The Quantum Mind and the Meaning of Life
By Evan Harris Walker.
It was a best seller for a few months...
Truly fascinating book. I’ve read is almost a dozen times....and each time I learn (retain) something new.
First half is an in depth historical account of the study of physics throughout the ages....the second half is reverse engineering / search for consciousness / the soul.
Very deep subject matter yet an easy read.
