    Science-Centric Spirituality

    Regarding science and spirituality. The "self" in self-consciousness is a human construct in the same way that theism is a human construct. And the saints and mystics of all ages have told us that dying to this "self " is the only way to truly know God. Scientists using fMRI technology have found areas of the brain that are specific to every human function. But there is no specific area of the brain that is representative of a "self" separate from and over against other "selves". "Self"-consciousness is a misnomer that humanity cannot presently see beyond. But the human being of the future will know that there is only Consciousness, that we are all a part of it, and therefore all a part of each other. That is why I cannot harm, or even judge, another person without myself being harmed or judged. I am grateful to Bishop Spong for speaking so clearly regarding the death of theism. I look forward to reading about the death of the idea of "self" that separates me from God, from nature, from other people and from my true Self. I recommend the book, "A God That Could Be Real", and this 5 minute youtube video
