Neurotheology
Warter, C. 2004.  BH 14:23-26. CELD ID 21495

Abstract
The human brain is wired to experience non-ordinary states of consciousness. We can reveal the mystical aspects of the self. Current research validates this assumption long maintained by spiritual and religious personalities and writings. We are spiritual beings having a human experience. As the receptors in our brain and consciousness begin to be uncovered, we can evidence this phenomenon with scientific data. Initiation or activiation of the determinate circuitry in our synaptic brain system allow for the subjective experience of the Divine. Research in meditation and prayer has opened the door to the new field or Neurotheology. Study of this field promises a deeper understanding of the purpose of human existence, which the mystics and saintly individuals of many traditions have tried to explain to us for centuries.
