There is this postulated theory of certain part of our brain being responsible for religious/spiritual experiences. Whenever brought up by people trying to nullify the idea of God, I reply saying why to build a radio with no antenna? In addition, I really don't think we can reduce everything to brain only. A lot that has to do with God comes through heart too. As for the rest of the organs, go figure. Through acts of healing, at least.
However, while learning more about transhumanism and its orientations, I came up with this thought, that if indeed certain areas of the brain constitute to our spiritual experiences, activating them might bring about a change in the way how humanity perceives the spiritual. That is, if it ever gets to that point. Nevertheless we can say that damaging certain areas of the brain does affect the human abilities. So far I haven't heard how damaging those certain postulated regions responsible for the religious/spiritual experiences would impact our spirituality. Probably it wouldn't restrict God. At least He could restore the brain if so.
In many ways enhancing the human being sounds like building the tower of Babel. The agenda behind it is eventually and essentially satanic, at least through the philosophical principle. I am discussing some profound enhancement, like nanotechnology inserted in the brain, connecting people into some network of virtual reality etc. So it is not I am claiming wiring us up would give free access to Heaven through some kind of automatic self realization. But it could sort of back-fire at the attempt of making people slaves of Satan inspired technology, by increasing their spiritual sensitivity or something like that.
I don't know if anyone has studied the subject from this perspective. We do have timothy learies and others who did that through drugs, though. But the idea of technology opening people for spirituality sounds pretty crazy. If it only stimulates what is already there, it seems a different case than drinking gallons of shamanistic portions. Not that I would necessarily advice anyone going for that. The problem is the ideology and the powers working in the background of the whole thing. Would the technology be crafted by God knowing men, which could be verified, it be a different thing I suppose.
Yet, I still prefer the power of the Holy Spirit through the blood of Jesus and the love of God. As we are living during these times, what I've described is rapidly becoming reality. Just as much science relieves us from much time consuming basic toil, it is making us depended on the technology. I see computers and such becoming smaller and smaller, so there's no doubt soon they offer implants to get you on line. Holographic screens are already here. Look how it was ten years ago, and how fast the development is accelerating.
I believe science and technology can be the smartest plan the devil has come up with so far, right after institutionalized religion and the clergy between man and God. It is obvious science can never prove God exists because He simply refuses to lay down on the table to be tested like some laboratory rat. It works the other way around. We should let Him examine us, on a daily basis.
Crying after information and knowledge to prove anything is always limited to our way of understanding and what we can perceive. It is like pissing in a cup and drinking it, believing we have found the elixir of eternal life.
Sure, technological advancement can get us somewhere. It's a crossroads where we either understand: eternal, omnipotent and omnipresent Creator is the only logical answer for our existence, or then continue further on into the oblivion. Hypothetically speaking, that is. I do believe the power of salvation and God's prophetic purpose for us in many cases overruns the foolish human ramblings. In fact, that's our only hope.
