AFTER discussing the idea in-depth with MMY, he said he was convinced simply by the
depth of the equivalences that were pointed out. That is NOT the same as "scientific
'proof'" however, and Hagelin may have felt uneasy over touting it that way, even if he
personally is convinced.

It's an interesting idea: that the Vedic archtypes (the devas) that are held to have both
physical and mental equivalents are so accurate, at least for humans, that you can point
out the brain structures that support a given archtype in the human brain.

As a general idea, it's not far from what neuro-scientists in general believe: there's plenty
of discussion in the scientific literature about which brain structure supports which
mental/emotional function. As a claim of 100% accuracy ala Hagelin's claims about what
MMY showed him concerning Physics and the Veda? I don't have the background to
evaluate things at that level --few people do since it requires advanced knowledge of a
scientific field like Physics or neuroscience as well as some strong familiarity with the
details of the Vedic world view.

If his book turns out to be correct, at least in some of the details, he just might be worthy.

I mean, imagine the medical utility of being able to reliably chose a piece of vedic music as 
valid  therapy for a given illness merely because vedic tradition holds that said music is
pleasing to a given deva or devas, as a for instance...
