With a binary soul, one half of us, the conscious mind, or "spirit", can go on to reincarnate, while the other half, the unconscious mind, or "soul", becomes trapped in a heavenly or hellish dreamlike netherworld. It is not inconsequential that modern neuroscience has determined that two separate minds co-exist in us at the same time, one occupying the left hemisphere of the brain, the other the right.
In the BSD scenario, the division between the two halves is an unfortunate consequence of the legendary "Fall" at Eden; this division causes us to lose our memory in-between lives, thus thwarting any chance to leaqrn from our mistakes from one life to the next.
I argue in my books that the change Jesus brought to this scenario was only in that His Resurrection set a seqjuence of events into play that would eventually result in the "Universal Resurrection" of Christian prophecy, but a resurrection that occurs in the mind, wherein all our past-life selves return again, popping back up into our conscious awareness.
Christ made two promises about eternal life : one, that he was the resurrection, that those who died could still live again; the other, that he was the life, that it was possible for some to NEVER die. I argue in my books that the second promise was new, but that the first was old as time itself, the same promise held by all mystical religions.
I encourage folks here to take a look at my research, at [www.divisiontheory.com] ; and I invite Tom Harpur to accept my offer of review copies of my books.
