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.
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.
The virtue of a highly evolved being embraces all people and things and dispels the darkness which isolates them.
Hua Hu Ching-primary lesson.
