Ph.D. Neuroscientist: Are objects real?
Dr. James Cook: Surprisingly, the answer is no.
Certain spiritual insights into the nature of reality fit perfectly with our scientific understanding of the world. Understanding the nature of perception is the key to appreciating this. As a neuroscientist and expert on perception, I hope to lay out a scientific picture of reality in which spiritual experience can be appreciated and understood in all its profundity.
