Neurotheology 3 - This lecture, by neuroscientist and author Todd Murphy, explores an hypothesis about what happens in the brain when a person attains enlightenment. Using concepts in neurotheology developed by Michael A. Persinger (inventor of the God Helmet), Murphy (inventor of the 8 Coil Shakti neural stimulation system) explores the brain's role in enlightenment 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.

Nov. 8th 2013 - Todd Murphy's book "Sacred Pathways: The Brain's Role in Religious and Mystic Experiences" (foreword by His Holiness, The Dalai Lama) is now available. It has a more in-depth discussion of enlightenment than this video lecture. Here is the URL:
