Research and the Soul

In an article today in Science Daily we are informed that researchers will now delve into areas that contemporary science is not able to explain. Areas such as the mystery of consciousness.

I believe that the day science is able to explain such a phenomenon - and I am totally convinced that such a day will come - is the day when science will have totally merged with spirituality. (If you prefer, call it knowledge of the spirit, or even the science of spirituality).

The author of the study, Professor Coates states this: “When we see a sunset or hear a symphony our sense organs, brains and bodies are moved in ways that are well understood by the physical and biological sciences. But during such experiences we also enjoy distinctive forms of conscious awareness. Yet this undeniable fact about our conscious lives is stubbornly resistant to scientific understanding. How is it even possible for purely physical brain activity to produce conscious experience? How do the qualities that manifest themselves in experience relate to the very different properties that are referred to in scientific descriptions of the physical world?”
