The Body-Mind Argument by Dr Kobus Du Toit

Realising that science is a story written in different chapters will help us attain a better understanding about the dynamic interplay of the body-mind argument. We should read all chapters in order to gain total comprehension. Sadly, some scientists and medical schools stopped reading at the end of the chapter about the Newtonian model. They did not get to the part about quantum mechanics and quantum dynamics where Max Planck, Niels Bohr, Werner Heisenberg, Louis de Broglie, Arthur Compton, Albert Einstein, and many more, not to mention that of the String Theory.

While most of us don’t think about quantum physics in our daily lives, the lack of its presence in the medical sciences, who favour a cut, burn and poison model, does affect us when we are at our most vulnerable. When you are faced with a diagnosis, it does not help you to bring up the fact that your disease may have metaphysical (that which is beyond the physical), origins with a person who only has physical tools in their toolbox.

It’s been around for about one hundred years and still medical science has not caught up with quantum physics, which reveals the invisible connection and powerful interplay between the soul, the Divine realm and the physical plane. In order to gain better insight into the mysteries of life and miracle healings, we need a paradigm shift. For too long, science has considered the phenomenon about recollections in relation to death, OBEs or NDEs, hallucinatory or illusory.

The time has come for science and spirituality to find common ground when it comes to the body-mind argument. Science needs to set aside its hostility towards spirituality because the mechanistic computer model about the brain, that the brain is actually the mind, simply fails to explain human consciousness. Human consciousness can be irrational. Think about the phenomena of telepathy, synchronicity, the multiple effect, telekinesis, visions and healing modalities like tapping and emotional release techniques. Science just focuses on the how, clinging to the dogmas of the mechanistic and reductionist model. Interestingly, religion is equally as boxed-in by dogma.

In our concept of science today, everything is measured in terms of visible reality, while consciousness is known as paranormal and is based on a virtual reality, probabilities of the so-called impossibilities about which the usual reaction is: yes, I suppose it sounds or appears to be right, but it doesn’t make sense. Then they just forget about it or simply ignore it and just carry on doing with what they were doing in the same way and according to the existing scientific dogmas, as before.

Scientists are just too scared to admit to this simulated reality. However, if they would reach the point in future, to accept and admit to the reality of paranormal events, one can only imagine the extent of turmoil it will create in society, almost equal to a bomb thrown under water tank, causing paranormal events in all of its dissimilarities, to come out like a can of worms opened.  One can only imagine the turmoil it would cause. Suddenly, science would be in a position to validate paranormal which actually existed all the time – a simulation cannot simulate itself. Such admission may also cause a huge dislocation of concepts and will have a cataclysmic impact on infrastructure as we know it, such as the medical, pharmaceutical, psychology, economy, financial and political arenas.

 Consciousness is a subjective experience. You cannot study it from the outside; you need to experience it. This is why Albert Einstein struggled to understand it. He tried to do it rationally and for this reason, we have to be able, intuitively, without the involvement of the rational mind, to delve through the objective experience into the subjective experience, to make sense from it, to arrive at the reason, the “why” behind the “what” of what you experience.

In his book “The Transpersonal Vision: The Healing Potential of Non-ordinary States of Consciousness,” psychiatrist, psychiatric researcher, professor and author, Stanislav Grof writes: “The many strange characteristics of transpersonal experiences shatter the most fundamental metaphysical assumptions of Newtonian-Cartesian paradigm and the materialistic world view.” He further noted that any attempt to dismiss transpersonal experiences as irrelevant products of human fantasy or hallucinations was naïve and inadequate for they present “a critical challenge, not only for psychiatry and psychology, but for the entire philosophy of Western Science.” This is quite some claim for such a high profile and highly respected professional person who was educated and trained by Western Science.

People who have had miracle healings, NDEs and OBEs, like I had, are proof that the brain cannot be the mind and that the memory is not contained in the privacy of your skull. The brain only processes and mediates between data and images gained from invisible energy sources or fields outside the body and the body itself via the outer senses, something scientists don’t like to admit.  Visit our events page for all our events and talks in the next two months or get in contact with me via email – kobus@revitalizeyourlife.co.za
