Brain complexity: gene response to light stimuli (Introduction)

DAVID: Work in mouse cortex demonstrates many genetic changes as the brain modifies to new stimuli:

DAVID’s comment: This demonstrated plasticity shows how intimately the brain modifies itself to the immaterial tasks at hand. The brain and the s/s/c are very intimately connected, even if one is material and one is immaterial. Yet from the NDE reports the s/s/c can exist and record experiences while not in the presence of a functional brain. Clearly dualism.

dhw: Yes indeed, NDEs suggest dualism. And yes indeed, the material plastic brain modifies itself to the immaterial tasks at hand. The task is at hand, and then the brain implements the concept (task) by modifying itself. It does not modify itself in advance of the task being at hand.

You've left out God enlarging the brain in each advance in the evolution of Homo sapiens.
