Consciousness Depends upon Jesus

Apart from Jesus the brain cannot be either logically or scientifically explained. My reasoning has to do with God being biblically defined as “light.”[1] Consider: light is meaningless apart from an observer. But there is more to this reasoning as it becomes apparent from the logic of the brain that Jesus is much more than a religious option and that science, observational in nature, requires that a Person play a central role in creation – this being the best if not only way to explain how an image, as the oppositional interface between order and disorder, guides the creation of matter. Simply put, complexity in and of itself can never explain the emergence of mind. For example, the complexity of neural loops in the human brain does not logically explain the emergence of conscious mind. Something has to explain how and why these loops, hierarchically arranged, came into being and how, as organized matter, they function for the purpose of creating or sustaining an image

What is the primary function of an image? The quick answer is that in a fundamentally personal Universe the perception of an image is the actual event or process of containing the Second Law – a claim explained on the basis of an image being finite and expectable through time. In other words, as we perceive an image, invariably fused with an awareness of the body as a finite whole, we are by the very act of perceiving this image restraining a universal tendency toward increasing disorder and implicit nonexistence. It follows that our Creator must be a Person — exactly as biblically described.

My recent book, Consciousness Finally Explained: A Perfect Synthesis of God and Brain, explains the foregoing in greater detail. You can access the book through the “Home” tab above.

About Glenn Dudley

GLENN DUDLEY became interested in the mind-body problem as a Pre-Med student at the University of Colorado where he emphasized studies in physics, philosophy, and Judeo-Christian theology. He received his M.D. degree from the University of Colorado in 1969. After a mixed Psychiatry/Medicine internship, he worked for two years at MIT's Neurosciences Research Program -- a think tank whose objective was that of understanding how the hard-wiring of the nervous system mediates thought and emotion. Then, he spent a year in the Department of Psychiatry at Tufts Medical School in Boston reviewing the world's literature on psychological and emotional predispositions to cancer. From 1975 to his retirement in 1998 he practiced primary care medicine.
