Abstract


The principles of neuroscience assume and predict that all experiences are generated by brain activity as a consequence of structural patterns. A convergence of methodologies and measurements indicate that religious/mystical experiences and beliefs associated with them are predictable phenomena. The central roles of the right hemisphere, specifically the temporal lobe, and the chemistry, structure, and gene sequences that affect this region’s electrical sensitivity and intercalation with the left hemisphere are reviewed. The precarious consequences of the enmeshment between the neuronal networks that mediate the survival of the self and moral judgments are considered. The neuroquantological bases to the cellular activity that mediates these experiences suggest an imminent change in paradigm that will alter the manner in which we perceive ourselves and our relationship to the universe.
