    I have a great interest in religions & spirituality as a whole & feel very spiritual in myself although have never thought of myself as being "religious" as such

      Where is that some place else you think you should be?

      Simple.answer is destiny ...think about it.

      Is it not here you have gained the perspective of over there to desire it?
      So if you are there will you not have the same perspective of here and also desire it?For the only unique  thing between  here and there is you...

      think about it and go in  faith as that of a child...believing that you may be understanding.

      Sorry, but I have no idea what that means. If spiritual is an emotion, what parts of the body provide the biochemical reactions to drive the emotion?

        The brain

          Sorry, but nothing of the sort has every been found in the brain.

          Interesting, in another thread, you said emotions and thoughts are non-physical, yet 'spirituality' comes from the brain.

          Grasp of reality?

            Some recent studies have led some scientists to believe that damage to he left inferior parietal lobe and the right angular gyrus can tamper with such feelings. It isn't proof of anything but you may find it interesting:

            Your logic is not making sense to me? How do you mean they have found no evidence in the brain. Perhaps I didn't understand your initial question? Which was...what part of the body provides the biochemical reaction?

            It seems you failed to read my post in the other thread in its entirety or perhaps I was unclear? Did you miss the physical aspect of what makes us human beings?

            The emotions and the physical are what make us whole. One does not exist without the other. Take away the emotions and you have a physical organism incapable of any thoughts, ideas, or feeling. Take away the physical and you have emotions that have no physical component to act as a conduit to feel. It is therefore pure energy.

              It's obvious you have no idea what you're talking about. Emotions cannot possibly exist without the physical body to drive them.

              Try taking Biology 101 and work your way up from there. You will eventually get there and gain an elementary understanding of the human body.

                Does biology teach about energy? It amazes me that one would think the body mainly the brain, alone produces the zillions of activities of the mind.

                Science seems to acknowledges everything is energy. So perhaps you might like share your knowledge on what you claim I don't know.

                What do you think happens to the human being when part of the brain has been destroyed? Yes, certain functions cease because the energy of a certain wave no longer has the physical conduit. The amazing thing about this energy though, that no longer has a conduit,is that sometimes, it will create new neurological pathway to fire in order to continue to exist. Not ever believed in, in the days of old but now science is making new discoveries.

                You might like to check out Brain plasticity. Not sure if that is a biological area of study?

                  Not really, but physics does.



                  I'm not sure I have that much time available.



                  lol Where did you dream up that notion?



                  No, I think you need to do some reading.

                    We see things differently and that's what makes discussing a more interesting exercise. My notions differ to yours. Your area of study differs to mine. Either way they are just views from a different perch in the universe. So be it.

    God's will and wisdom. Your body is done to bear Earth's conditions. If you were on Mars you would burn. The orbit that Earth turns in is the most suitable for human life that if Earth deviates a bit we will all disappear. Everything is well done in universe smile
