I don't see any 'religionization'. On the contrary, he tries to use materialism 
to explain something relating to religion. Or to explain metaphysical events.

It is not even particularly good science. I think it may be a good example of 
what Mayka and Bill were talking about the religionizatipn of science.

I listened 10 minutes. Up to that point, it has been very materialistic, and as 
Mike say, left out the 'soul'. It is very scientific, and not for one with a 
view of anti-science. We have a long way to go to complete the journey of 
science. Or will it be 'completed' at all?

Very interesting video on many different levels - the penny dropped a number of 
times re my own thoughts and experiences. I was surprised he left out the 'long 
dark night of the soul' in his presentation tho.

Listen to five minutes of the 100 minute video below and then make your own 
Enlightenment, Self, and the Brain. How the brain changes with final liberation

1:39:08 - 2 years ago 
Neurotheology 3 - What happens in the brain when a person attains 
enlightenment? This talk offers an hypothesis. Using concepts in neurotheology 
developed by Michael A. Persinger (inventor of the God Helmet), Todd Murphy 
(inventor of the 8 Coil Shakti neural stimulation system) explores the brain's 
role in enlightenemnt as understood in Buddhism. The talk also looks at the 
self (or sense of self), and how it's place as a brain function allows it to be 
flexible enough to change as a person becomes enlightened. It examines a few 
case histories, including those of Ramana Maharishi, Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh, 
The Buddha, and some others.
