Neurotheology 1 - "God and the Brain", is a lecture about the Persinger "God Helmet" (actually the Koren Helmet) and the 8 Coil Shakti by neuroscientist Todd Murphy. It covers visions of God, Near-Death Experiences, and other themes in neurotheology, the field that integrates neuroscience and spirituality. This is the first of six lectures on Spirituality and the Brain by the inventor of the 8 Coil Shakti and the Shiva Neural Stimulation system, which duplicates the procedures used in the God Helmet experiments. He has been a member of Laurentian University's Behavioral Neuroscience research group, under the direction of Dr. M. A. Persinger, since 1998. See http://www.spiritualbrain.com
Neurotheology 2 - This lecture by scientist Todd Murphy discusses "Darwinian Reincarnation", a speculative theory that regards rebirth as a human behavior from the perspective of biological evolution. This talk describes the "algorithmic reincarnation" hypothesis published in the Journal for near-death studies, a peer-reviewed scientific journal. This lecture is given by Todd Murphy, the creator of the 8 Coil Shakti, and the Shiva Neural stimulation System, which replicates the Persinger "God Helmet".
Neurotheology 3 - This lecture, by neuroscientist Todd Murphy, explores an hypothesis about what happens in the brain when a person attains enlightenment. Using concepts in neurotheology developed by Michael A. Persinger (inventor of the God Helmet), Murphy (inventor of the 8 Coil Shakti neural stimulation system) explores the brain's role in enlightenemnt as understood in Buddhism. The talk also looks at the self (or sense of self), and how it's place as a brain function allows it to be flexible enough to change as a person becomes enlightened. It examines a few case histories, including those of Ramana Maharishi, Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh, The Buddha, and some others.
Neurotheology 4 - This lecture, by Todd Murphy describes how telepathy and remote viewing have been generated in laboratory settings by Dr. M. A. Persinger (inventor of the "God Helmet") using "The Octopus" and "Shiva", circumcerebral (around the head) neural stimulation devices. It also discusses a case history of a possible miracle elicited using neural stimulation. This is part of a series of talks in neurotheology given by the inventor of the 8 Coil Shakti and the Shiva Neural Stimulation system (which replicates the God Helmet). Psychic skills were outside the range of science until the experiments described in this lecture were published in the peer-reviewed scientific literature. These articles can be found by searching for 'circumcerebral' at www.pubmed.com.
Neurotheology 5 - This lecture in neurotheology focuses on spiritual teachings about the body by neuroscientist Todd Murphy. Starting with an hypothesis (only an hypothesis; there is no evidence as yet) about Kundalini and how it projects our states of consciounsess into our bodies, it also looks at the neural basis for Subtle bodies. There is also a brief discussion of Chi and Yoga. This talk is given by Todd Murphy, inventor of the 8 Coil Shakti (similar to the Persinger God Helmet) and the Shiva Neural stimulation system.
Neurotheology 6 - The lecture by neuroscientist Todd Murphy (developer of the 8 Coil Shakti and The Shiva Neural Stimulation system), discusses how to apply neuroscience to your own spiritual process. It looks at common altered-state experiences, like the 'sensed presence', deja vu, tingley sensations, and others. It also looks at how to choose spiritual practices (by looking at 'temporal lobe signs' (also called Complex Partial Epileptic Signs) as well as using a high-tech method; complex magnetic neural stimulation. It features a discussion of the Persinger "God Helmet" (actually the "Koren Helmet") and the future of spirituality.
