I hope your husband read my post. A lot of effort and energy went into it, to say the least!
The final thesis here is that the universe was made for us, and to include us, or we would not be here, and the spirit and the love of God is quite obviously very friendly in the person of Jesus Christ, and finally the Christ mind of the Empty Buddha Bowl first filled with Hermes is not an imposition on the mind of man, but is instead our natural state of mind, untrammeled by the vissisitudes of life, and so there's peace there, peace not as the world gives, but as God gives from above (incorruptible first/last cause or the alpha and omega of existence). This is truly a marvel with any who "grok" of it, who eat and drink of it and integrate it, as a new way of life, and a whole new order of freedom, which is nothing less than the absolute and unfettered freedom to freely love as we are loved.

Most folks probably couldn't locate their parietal lobe with a map and a compass. For the record, it's at the top of your head — aft of the frontal lobe, fore of the occipital lobe, north of the temporal lobe. What makes the parietal lobe special is not where it lives but what it does — particularly concerning matters of faith.
If you've ever prayed so hard that you've lost all sense of a larger world outside yourself, that's your parietal lobe at work. If you've ever meditated so deeply that you'd swear the very boundaries of your body had dissolved, that's your parietal too. There are other regions responsible for making your brain the spiritual amusement park it can be: your thalamus plays a role, as do your frontal lobes. But it's your parietal lobe — a central mass of tissue that processes sensory input — that may have the most transporting effect. (Read "Top 10 Medical Breakthroughs".)
Needy creatures that we are, we put the brain's spiritual centers to use all the time. We pray for peace; we meditate for serenity; we chant for wealth. We travel to Lourdes in search of a miracle; we go to Mecca to show our devotion; we eat hallucinogenic mushrooms to attain transcendent vision and gather in church basements to achieve its sober opposite. But there is nothing we pray — or chant or meditate — for more than health.
Health, by definition, is the sine qua non of everything else. If you're dead, serenity is academic. So we convince ourselves that while our medicine is strong and our doctors are wise, our prayers may heal us too.
Here's what's surprising: a growing body of scientific evidence suggests that faith may indeed bring us health.

It starts with Newton and how that understanding is fundamentally wrong. Then they delve into the brain as a quantum machine.
Enjoy! I look forward to comments.
