The brain illusion
I am not one of the brain experts but from personal inner inquiry of the spiritual experience the brain is not what they say, at least you are not forced to believe the following non-sense. The body including brain is the physical aspect of you which from the latest discovery of science, the physicality of matter is the greatest illusion. The quantum physics says that if you look deep enough into the matter you’ll see the atom, proton, neutron, electron and eventually quarks which is the smallest known subatomic particle then if you go deeper it disappears. So if this is the case your body is also an illusion about which the knowledge is so vast than its hard to accept by this contradictory perspective. But the great insight is that the latest knowledge about quantum physics is already known by the Buddhists from many years ago. Now knowing this, a scientist who is doing the investigations of a deeper reality from the perspective of matter which is the scientific way to see reality usually is avoiding discussions about consciousness because trying to understand what is beyond physicality by using concepts is the scientific approach which limits you from finding the deeper truth of who you are, timeless formless presence which is not something to understand but to realize.
