Descartes set out to study everything in a materialistic way, except he couldn't. In subsequent generations, scientists whittled down those spiritual leftover, until many thought they could do away with them altogether.
Based on your own demonstrations and scholarly reviews, you've stumbled into the very studies and experiences that are reviving the old Descartes, and rethinking consciousness--even as atheistic materialists try to bury him. In one recent BBC report on consciousness, they even went so far as to take their audience to his former gravesite:
You've completely jumped the science in favor of a very broad, global,synthesis that puts you in a middle ground between some sort of Creationism and some undefined atheism: very similar to intelligent design.
This is the philosophical view I find least attractive, but it's philosophically defensible--and your explanations are rational. Just remember: there are two types of bad theories: those that explain too little--and those that explain too much.
