Read either of these books and you will be among the first to understand the true solution to the ancient mystery of mind and matter. Below is the Amazon Book Description.
Consciousness Finally Explained
A Perfect Synthesis of God and Brain
Believe it or not! This book solves the ancient mystery of how mind arises from matter. The evidence—based on a new and more comprehensive study of the human brain—is irrefutable: subjective mind does not and cannot possibly arise from objective matter! It would be like saying mind comes from marbles, assuming they could be properly arranged—an a priori absurdity unless there was something more. This book is all about the “something more” as it relates to brain anatomy and, specifically, the “limbic” mechanism by which energy is converted into the movement which ultimately perpetuates the body mass. Upon grasping the anticipatory logic of the brain readers will be forced by the sheer weight of reason to acknowledge the existence of God—biblically defined as transcendent yet personal. They will understand why, consistent with the discoveries of quantum physics, matter itself is not as physical as it appears; that indeed matter, and therefore the entire Universe, is “something more”—in a word, an image in the mind of God. They will learn that all matter is held together in a manner strikingly similar to the way the brain binds “qualia” (sensations) into an image, the perception of which restrains a universal tendency toward increasing disorder and ultimately the cold, weightless infinitude of nonexistence. It is against this possibility that, in a God-centered word, the self sees itself as finite or “conscious.”
The proof requires looking very closely at the way the brain, most notably its “limbic” center, is designed for narrowing an expectancy gap to which—in the absence of a finite image—infinity and/or weightlessness is implicit. The trick is to learn how qualia streaming into the brain from every nook and cranny of the body mass impacts the limbic brain, which in turn modulates the motor system to narrow, by a resulting image, the brain’s expectancy gap—and then to recognize that the light by which one’s “life space” is illuminated is none other than the immanence of God, a God who transcends matter just as the self transcends the body mass. This “light of self” cannot come from matter directly but, just as photons are the carriers of quantum energy, this light is the direct result of a regressive tendency in the brain and body toward weightless nonexistence, i.e., infinity. The convergence of qualia into the limbic brain then modulates the motor system—creating an image whose very perception thwarts further regression. Consciousness becomes envisioned as an oppositional state—between a tendency toward and a tendency away from infinity. An image represents the success of a tendency toward the finite, while the illuminated brightness of one’s surrounding sense of self is the direct result of an accentuated tendency toward infinity. All nicely explaining why the limbic brain is the center for the regulation of weight and temperature.
Boiling a difficult topic down, Dudley asserts that an image is the sole means by which disorder, and therefore the Second Law of Thermodynamics, is contained —strong proof for the existence and immanence of God. The Bible puts it this way: “God is light…in whom we live and move and have our being.” The upshot is that by acknowledging the existence and relevance of God for explaining the brain, the “hard question” of science is finally resolved. Bit there is more. The book’s Epilogue provides a surprising, sociological twist by explaining how any deviation from a biblical model for the flow of authority in a family distorts the way God is encoded within neural design, thereby compromising the efficacy by which the brain converts energy into matter in compliance with the equation E = mc2—which we can now see depends upon an image. The results are predictable, ranging between gender confusion and the limbic-mediation of many new and strange diseases. A life changing and possibly history-making book.
My previous book (778 pages) is a more detailed analysis of how brain anatomy proves the existence of God and explains consciousness:
Journey to the Center of the Brain
Explaining Mind in a Universe of Matter
Either of these books proves unequivocally that, exactly as the Bible claims, we “live and move and have our being in God” — this being the only way to explain the energy-regulating (cortico-limbic) design of the brain. These books were written for the average armchair philosopher interested in understanding the ancient mystery of how mind and matter are related — yet contain enough detailed anatomical proof to satisfy any hard-nosed neuroscientist or psychologist.
