The integration of theology and neuroscience allows for a breakthrough in our understanding of consciousness, teaching that consciousness cannot be an emergent property of matter but that, instead, our personal bubble of awareness is an ongoing relationship to God, quite literally a contrast between the finite and weightless infinity. Indeed, the design of the brain makes it clear that anticipation, intrinsic to the perception of every image, is equivalent to a regressive tendency within the brain toward implicit weightlessness – to the exact measure that an anticipated state, an anticipated state, or “image,” has not yet been realized. As with any regression, structurally-bound energy is released to be channeled immediately via the brain’s energy-regulating core into the anticipated event – the absence of which has set up the contrast with infinity in the first place!
Now God can be envisioned as the light by which the self sees itself — exactly equivalent to an interface between order and disorder. Indeed, the self – in a God-centered universe only – is precisely equivalent to the relationship between self and other, which further means that self awareness is precisely proportional to a tendency toward disorder.
The bottom line is that there is no such thing as an image apart from the light of God — assuming that, as the Bible proclaims, we do in fact “live and move and have our being in him.” See the book, Consciousness Finally Explained: A Perfect Synthesis of God and Brain, for a deeper understanding of this new approach to the brain and for how everyone’s bubble of awareness is at its thermodynamic roots a relationship between the finite and the infinite.
