The Brain Does NOT Create Consciousness


Debbie West | Waking Times

In a recent interview on Waking Times aired on The People’s Voice Network, Dr. Eben Alexander, Harvard Neurosurgeon presents compelling scientific research in the field of consciousness that examines the unfolding reality that the brain does NOT create consciousness. Misleading concepts that focus on reductive materialism have kept us in the dark about the true nature of the human soul and its integral part in our evolution as spiritual beings.

“The old paradigm of birth to death represents an outdated concept that is woefully inadequate in defining the unfolding reality of expanded awareness,” he stated in the interview with Waking Times. “Materialist science is at the end of its days as most scientists are changing their views. The old concepts are soon to be relegated to the same dust bin as ‘the earth is flat’ as we develop a more mature understanding and transcend old beliefs.”

Supported by worldwide research that is now delving into the concepts of string theory that involves a complete reworking of our outdated and limited views of space/time means that we are now entering a phase where science will greatly expand its boundaries. The foundation of the research begins with the clear understanding of the “Soul”, or conscious spirit, that exists outside of the body and is eternal.

“Consciousness is at the core to unfolding all of reality”, states Alexander.

The brain operates the body based on input from the personality, but the higher intelligence, or subconscious, is the mechanism that controls the body, and that is the soul that we have yet to acknowledge or even begin to understand. That is the free will component that exists long after the body stops. Near-death, paranormal, mysticism, past life memories, and akashic records are now a common thread that drives home the conclusion that there exists a soul within the human body that transcends the human experience. As we acknowledge the essence of our soul, we let go of the limitations of the illusional earth-based mentality and reach out to the greater cosmos of life. Many additional realms exist beyond the earth and in other dimensions of time/space. As spiritual beings, we can easily access these places.

Edgar Cayce, the father of holistic medicine, pioneered the concept in modern times that we are indeed “spiritual beings having a human experience”, but this is only a reemergence of what our ancestors already knew.

This time on earth will be one where we all transcend the false boundaries that convince us that we are separate entities and develop the understanding of the oneness that we all share, meaning that we don’t have to be either scientific or spiritual. Merging science and spirituality creates a new foundation for our peaceful coexistence in the greater cosmos.

    I was having a lazy day off work today (thank god) and I just left a post on another article I read before this that is almost relevant to this article as well, as in writing it, I came up with a scenario where our brains actually can create consciousness. The theme of the other article was along the lines of Science and Religion about to start WW3 and it angered me enough to get my communication on because war is no joke. It’s interesting to me though that this is the next article I read, because I’d like to see what people’s thoughts are on the scenario I came up with in my reply to that blog, mainly on the part that relates to this article. I would like to know what you think of my suggestion that our minds can create a new consciousness so to speak. Our consciousness may in fact be someone else’s creation.

    I will admit I did not have time to read the article in its entirety before posting this, I just thought I should comment about the title, this is all my opinion and none of what I say is fact, I think I am right in what I am about to say however because on matters like this, war, which is certainly no joke, I believe I have to get around the problem of what caused something, and take a viewpoint retrospectively ie; if a war was just fought, and enough time had passed that things were peaceful for the average Joe and Jill, there would be books and studies done in their history classes at school that would be aimed at educating them about how ww3 came to pass, with the agenda of never allowing it to happen again. I say this, because I studied ww1+2 in my history classes. With that in mind, the focus shifts to the main problem, why did so many people have to die, and takes the pressure off the fenatics who are only justifying why science is good or religion is good, as they are just explenations for war, not an excuse for it.

    I imagine if I was to have to write an article for a school paper about what would I tell the people of 2014 now that would prevent the needless genocide of a lot of people over such a silly argument, it would probebly be very poorly written as i am a lazy person in general. But the theme would most likely (and that is how I view things I work out a multitude of different scenarios, let them play out and choose what is most likely the right scenario to be a reality although always having an open mind that if someone comes up with a better explination I am able to accept that) be about how religion is essentially a failed science, and the goals of science and religion are essentially the same thing. The goal being to explain what could possibly happen after death, as that is the true reason for it all, to curb anxiety and allow us to get on with what ever task is at hand that allowed us to feed our families and grow. So with that in mind, religion I say is a failed science, (better term probably being organised religion) because it does not have the ability to change its perspective if something was to change. This is why religious fenatics still hate gay people for example.

    But what science fanatics fail to recognise, is that they too must be able to change their ability to accept that things can change and paradimes may not be at all true as to how we view the standard model for instance. I think we have to be open to the idea that there may be something else at play here as the way I see it, science right now is more a “give me one miracle (the big bang) and we will explain the rest”

    I do not know what the right answer is, but I can throw a perspective out there that says, religion asks ‘why’ and science asks ‘how’ it is highly probable that the big bang never happened and we actually have mind, body AND spirit so to speak. I say this because if I allowed science to run it’s course and finally get all the understanding of this universe down to the most advanced understanding that we could instantly predict when a star in another galexy was going to blow up, the only thing any one of us is able to do with such knowledge, is either tell it to someone else, or simulate it on a computer. I believe we may one day find that the understanding of everything in itself would be creation. Imagine if you will that you yourself had the knowledge of the whole universe, you could see the blueprints for example, even if you just thought about it all for a split second, that would be enough to let everything in your mind ‘simulate’ and they would essentially have their own conscience, the things in your head would be self aware, much like how it can feel very real when reading a book to jump into that world and forget this one.

    So it seems pointless from either perspective to allow ourselves to go to war over such a silly debate, when you realize how each and every one of us is able to think and react differently. To kill or to exterminate in the name of someone or in the name of science, is the only evil, as that just means your allowing yourself to end something or someone’s life. We need to all learn to look retrospectively from the most likely situation when it comes to something so serious as war, and predict (which is our only gift as a human that seperates us from most other living creatures) and choose to forget our differences. Or we will have ww3 become a certainty, allowing the future to repeat, chains to never break, I am more worried about ww4 because at this rate, it will be fought with sticks and stones.

    Anyone up the bridge in Scientology knows for certain they are not just the body..Just doing some dianetics auditing for a dozen hours will make one a believer an release much case on the subject….That’s what Scientology is all about ,,getting the truth back as to who you really are…

  3. Wonderful, what a website it is! This webpage presents valuable data to us, keep
    iit up.

    Few dosages of magic mushrooms or even LSd will do that way better then dianetics am assume, as this tecnology has been here millions of years and WILL be here longer more, so that is way more perfected then man made stuff.

    Perhaps we just need some small christian support for the Plant world and thing will be alright, Unless some other dark beings done these things with Dianetic people what has happened in their sircles then they have some big problems..

    Besides, a lot of people like that… if persons leave for strage reason from Christianty or some other proper religions that are God based, then they will not have so much these kind of story to share.. so this is to take for mark..

    Also as long they openly do not allow Plant usage, animal communications and open source spirit knowladge and time travel then am really sorry to say, that this 75 million years of knowledge is to little for me to choose as final solution.

  5.' Margus says:

    but the information about brainwashing and implants are important, more about these beings that Dianetic people in higher level might be familiar or understood more:

    And please make my 2 comments public, as intention is good and not a blind one.

    We just also need to figure out, why was he made wear this kind of hat with same star symbols as many other organizations:
