Description


Technological advances have given us increased life expectancy, conquest of disease and hunger, provided us the wherewithal to explore other worlds, and our inner selves. Yet, we owe a certain pessimism to the materialism of the mind. Beyond Biology transposes brain science from mere description of diseases and lesions, into a realm of limitless possibility. The brain, mediator for all behavior, is the springboard of all human capacity, taking us far beyond our physical and biological limitations. Do computers and other tools extend mental and physical capacities? For science, music, architecture, all of civilization, our brain is their launching pad. Beyond Biology views physicality as the mere beginning of human potential, not its end. Scientific understanding, far from being just reductionist, must ignite a new spiritual awakening. This work seeks to transport the reader into the metaphysical world through the lens of brain biology.
