This book is about the possibility of spiritualism being purely a biochemical event, mediated by a group of diverse molecules made endogenously by our own brain and also externally by plants and mushrooms. Spiritualistic experiences are triggered by entheogenic molecules derived from plants and fungi and various civilizations have historically sought these molecules for use in religious rituals.
The sophistication of biological information strategies is mind-boggling and unmatched by our modern information technology. The human body, behaving as a ‘cellular society’, contains about 10,000 billion cells which means our body has 1500 times more cells than there are humans on this planet and one could argue that the information needs of our body should dwarf our social information needs.
Complex systems of varied nature, living and non-living, with or without a brain, end up in a strikingly similar state of functional and structural organization! Why? How? This is the basis of this book written by a medical doctor, who is also a biochemist. Quite often it is difficult to evade the question - does the brain really matter? The author draws on solid science to justify his argument.
The author is a medical doctor and a biochemist. He draws heavily on the modern Complexity theory to show that God is an emergent property of the Universe. He argues that God-like properties can be observed in a number of physical and biological systems. He argues that religion has more to do with sociology than theology. Religiosity of man has a solid genetic and neuroanatomic basis.
