The Silent Trip: Two Selves and Induced Religious Experiences
I would like to share this incredible lecture that focuses on interpreting deeper connections between Neuroscience, understanding of the self, enlightenment, spirituality, and religion. Todd Murphy is an excellent lecturer on the subject while working with Michael A. Persinger. Before over twenty years ago Michael A Persigner began experiments that would induce altered states of consciousness and religious experiences in subjects observed by famous “God Helmet”—the device that sends to a brain low electromagnetic frequencies that affect human brain functioning.
I accept Murphy’s thorough analyzes as much better than that of Michael A. Presinger’s when comes to the comparative analysis between science and religion. Also, in this lecture Todd Murphy explains in a much better way the intentions and scientific methods of Michael A. Persinger and his “God Helmet.” Being profoundly interested in this topic I hope I will find some valuable discussions. There is one part of the lecture that freaks me totally out, where Todd Murphy talks about the functioning of the two brain hemispheres, where he points that a sense of the self is constructed of the “silent you” (the right hemisphere of the brain), which is like a shadow matrix of the real sensed self that you express, know, or experience. I always knew that I am the one that never speaks, and not the one that everybody meets. Just joking, but this part makes me wonder how dualistic we are by our very nature....
I appreciate any of your responses on this subject.
