looking at old posts in my site visible in Google, I found this old article from 2007 site http://www.kinberg.net/wordpress/stellan/2007/10/01/nessun-dorma/. I saw again Paul Potts tonight. Paul Potts video has been seen by 232 millions. It made me have a few tears.
I found now that Paul has been surpassed by Susan Boyle whose video has been seen by mor than 233 million times. Again tears.
I stumbled upon this Ted. The issue has touched human beings for millennia and still does. A lot of humans have been stoned for that.( John 8:11 ) The issue is still intresting for many in the 21th century . This is evident as this Ted has been seen 5 139 925 times since it first was held in 2015. I think the issue is intresting, as it is about human beings behaviours, about love and being or not being kind issues I have dedicate time to before.
There is a Swedish way of describing marriage “Marriage is the first step toward divorce”. I personally went to a marriage preparing Catholic course. There we met a couple who have lived together for about 40 years and still loved each other. how is that possible? I unfortennately lost all the notes I made there. And what kind of love did they lived in? We never got an answer to that question.
And what is to love someone? is to get in love like in a Freudian psychosis? This video raises many questions I have not seen any Ted about.
With Jesus our ancestor in Middle East could experience a physical manifestation of God through Jesus miracles.
Now 2000 years later we are talking about a physical manifestation of God in our brain.
I saw two videos.
- The Ted seminar “This is Your Brain on God | Michael Ferguson | TEDxSaltLakeCity“
- Morgan Freemans “The story of God“. I will focus this post on what was said in this video starting at 1:35:26
MRT were made with Christian believers.
people were asked to press a button when they had a Spiritual experience of God. In those moments three areas were activated:
Frontal Attention regions, The Nucleus accumbens and the Medial prefrontal cortex.
It is called the
Neuro Spiritual System
“when Jesus describes heavenly rewards Neuroscientsts are illuminating the biological embodiment of these ancient
“the religious movement of Joseph Smith describes the Spirit of God like a
fire burning … a wonderful warm glow it makes you want to do good and be good. Iit may be the emotion that moral psychologist Jonathan Hite refers to as elevation.
the frontal attention regions are probably acting in concert with the
nucleus accumbens in order to amplify the phenomenal content of this religious experience”
Physical manifestations of God
Morgan *Freeman met Andy Newberg a neurotheology neuroscientist in Philadelphia who studies what happens in our brain when we have religious experiences.
Mogan asks “Can i see Gods presence in my brain?”
The activity in Morgans frontal lobe increased during meditation just like Nuns being with Gos or Buddhists metidating.
A Atheist contemplating at God were not that successful, The Atheist could raise frontal lobe activity only a little.
Andrew Newbergs conclusion:
“Regardless of what your practice is, the key is if you believe it. The whole brain gets involved in faith.”
Morgan conlcudes: “Experiencing the divine actually changes the brain and the way we see the world.”

I am personally skeptic in considering the neuro scans to be a proof a divine presence or a God manifestation.
I would rather prefer to say that those MRT scans show the brain reacts on divine belief and divine experiences. But that is just my hypothesis.
God has however the power to “play” with Quantum physics rules , like Jesus did once as God is in my belief, the Creator of these. God is therefore able to show up in any kind of incarnations (Avathars) or any other way.
You may look at this interview with Andrew where he share his opinion about the “conflict” between religion and “Science”. He makes a good effort to solve that millenial conflict many humans have. To bring peace in this “conflict” has been my effort long time now . My last effort ended up describing a new “theoscientific” Creation view in the “Enlightened Genesis“.
