Professor V. S. Ramachandran, one of the world’s most influential scientists, also known as the “Marco Polo” of neuroscience, from the University of California, San Diego, USA. And B. Alan Wallace, leading scholar, author and meditation teacher, from the Santa Barbara Institute for Consciousness Studies, USA, are featured here discussing the difference between the mind and the brain… are they really different? Is one physical and the other metaphysical as has been suggested? Many great minds of all philosophical persuasions have, for more than two thousand years, claimed there is a ‘ghost’ in the machine, a soul, a spirit and that this energy or ‘life-force’ is indeed seperate and distinct from the body, including the brain. Are we with the help of neuroscience any closer to unveiling this mystery?
Watch, listen and decide for yourself….
