Neurotheology, Quantum Religion, and other false theories of mind


why does conscious experience accompany neurological brain functioning?

The brain would be used to express the mind, but the brain is neither the source of nor identical with the mind that it attempts to convey. It would be more accurate to say that the mind contains the brain than to say the brain contains the mind.

The brain, in other words, may not produce religious cognitions and emotions, but instead mediates them. The mediating function of the brain might be one of “straining, sifting, canalizing, limiting, and individualizing that larger mental reality existing behind the scenes”.

Brain systems, in other words, are not organized the same way in every individual. This cortical variability is a source of individual differences among subjects that is artificially reduced through the extensive manipulation of data that occurs in all imaging technologies.
