GOD AND THE BRAIN
This website is a collection of short essays on the subject of how mind emerges in a universe of matter. My most recent book, listed right below, is a revised and amplified collection of these essays. Enjoy, you will be among the first to understand the true solution to the ancient paradox of mind and matter. Spread the word! All glory to God!!
Consciousness Finally Explained
A Perfect Synthesis of God and Brain
Here is the updated Amazon Book Description of this 316 page book:
In this book Glenn Dudley resolves the ancient paradox of mind and matter. Disbelief? Take a deep breath and prepare for the proof and stunning consequence of this achievement—including the fact that the resolution answers the “hard question” of science: how qualia (elementary sensations) become conscious. How so? By anatomical proof that an image is the sole means by which the effects of the Second Law (tendency toward increasing disorder) are contained—thereby proving the existence of God. The focal point of the analysis is the “limbic” brain, analysis of which reveals that an image, being finite, thwarts an otherwise accelerating tendency toward weightless nonexistence—against which possibility the self sees itself as finite or “conscious.” Dudley analyzes the pathways taken by qualia streaming into the cerebral cortex from all parts of the body before converging in the limbic brain, just before this part of the brain tells the motor system what it must do to narrow an expectancy gap—to which infinity is implicit.
Consciousness becomes envisioned as the reality which/who oversees the relationship between the finite and the infinite, with an image, being finite, bearing witness to the successful thwarting of the infinite. It comes obvious that God, not matter, is fundamental—this being the only way that the cortico-limbic design of the brain makes sense with respect to creating or sustaining an image. The logic and details are fully explained.
The philosophical and theological implications are profound, including the startling realization that the Universe is an image in the mind of God—in whom, according to the Bible, “we live and move and have our being”—and the realization that the equation E = mc2 is meaningless apart from an image, and God biblically defined as light.
Following brief forays into quantum physics and the discovery that light is the primary carrier of energy, paralleling the way an image carries the infinity anticipated, regressive release of energy, Dudley puts a final nail in the coffin of evolution—beyond the fact that an image must precede the creation of matter—by revealing a Trinitarian pattern to everything from quarks to the family. It becomes apparent that the family triangle (father-mother-child) is a manifestation of the very nature of God; and that to the measure God is excluded, every member will suffer brain injury paralleling frontal lobotomy. This is evidence by the violence that has exploded almost to the day the Supreme Court outlawed God from public places. If you are an atheist, you won’t be after reading this book!
My previous book (778 pages) is a more detailed analysis of how brain anatomy proves the existence of God:
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.
