It makes very little sense to think of consciousness as miraculously and mysteriously emerging from matter apart from the preexistence of God “in whom we live and move and have our being.” Every image is bound to the way core energy-regulating nuclei modulate movement in creating or sustaining an image as expected through instants of time in a given context. The seeing of this image narrows an a tiny expectancy gap and/or mismatch to which infinity is implicit — against the possibility of which our finite consciousness is contrastingly illuminated. Proof is found in the way the visual system connects with the brain’s thermoregulatory core as the modulator of movement, the result of which is the minimization of disorder (and, which is the same, the narrowing of an expectancy gap. Given that matter itself is a vector between order and disorder, we can begin to see that an image (and therefore mind) must precede matter.
These insights lead to another — namely, that E = mc2 expresses the way an image (and therefore consciousness) is intrinsic to the inter-conversion of mass and energy in the brain and body. This conversion is bound to the above-mentioned expectancy gap to which infinity is implicit — proving among other things that the Laws of Physics cannot function apart from God. This in turn means that a tendency toward nonexistence, a return to God if you will, is encoded within neural design. For only insofar as the brain mirrors the very nature of God can a regressive tendency toward infinity regressively release the energy needed for the movement which creates an immersive image – the perception which, being expectably finite, restrains the Second Law.
For a more methodical introduction to these startling concepts, my book Consciousness Finally Explained: A Perfect Synthesis of God and Brain. is now available. In this book, you will discover the logic and rigorous anatomical basis for the foregoing claims. And much more!
