In attempting to explain the origin and meaning of consciousness I have been led slowly but surely to the most fundamental dichotomy of them all – existence and nonexistence – to discover by a meticulous analysis of the brain that consciousness is the image-based reality which (who) oversees the interface between the two. As explained in my recent book, Consciousness Finally Explained: A Perfect Synthesis of God and Brain, this interface requires that a biblically-defined God, not matter, is fundamental.
It is logical that the relationship between the finite and the infinite is meaningless apart from overseeing mind as the anticipator of the finite and the equivalent thwarting of infinity. The clincher, however, is found the brain’s energy-regulating limbic core, a fascinating anatomical intersection whose most important function is that of minimizing disorder by the anticipation and resulting channeling of energy into creating a finite image — which, being fused with an awareness of the body as a whole, represents the act of sustaining the body mass.
One interesting implication of this connection between energy and mass, as explained in the book, is that Einstein’s equation, E = mc2, is meaningless apart from an image in the mind of God. As photons are the carriers of regressively-released energy in the quantum world, so an illuminated image is the carrier of the energy released by a regressive change occurring in the momentary absence of an anticipated finite image.
