Susan, I am compelled to read a book on my shelf that I didn't think that I needed. It is called, Why God Won't Go Away. I looked at the authors: Andrew Newberg, Eugene D'Aquili and Vince Rause. I am already aquainted with Andrew Newberg since I have a Great Course called, The Spiritual Brain.

It's been awhile since I studied it, but two lectures come to the forefront; 1. How the brain changes God; 2. How God changes the brain. This is all based on the "plasticity" of the brain, meaning that our deeply held convictions along with repetition can rewrite the brain's function.

[en.m.wikipedia.org]

A quote from the link; "Brain activity ASSOCIATED WITH A GIVEN FUNCTION can be transferred to a different LOCATION (in the brain), the proportion of grey matter can change, and synapses may strengthen or weaken over time".

This is in line with the composite of whole brain activity throughout one's life according to the MOST IMPORTANT applications one puts through the "plastic" brain. So, to conclude, the lecture of the above Great Course includes "Believers and Athiests" as one of the concepts (that's right--concepts) of the whole course.

Mind and matter are eternally the same
