In the News (from The Independent): “Scientists at Oxford University have made a startling discovery: they’ve found a region of the brain that makes you wonder if you’ve done something wrong, and whether you’d have been well advised to do something better.
“There are several things that you should know about this region, which is inside your head… One, it’s called the lateral frontal pole. Two, it’s unique to humans – they ran tests on monkeys in the course of the research at Oxford and, nope, they don’t have it. Three, it’s the size of ‘a large Brussels sprout.’ And four, it’s a leap beyond current scientific knowledge into realms that can only be described as spooky. …
“For centuries we thought that the conscience was just some faculty of moral insight in the human mind, an innate sense that one was behaving well or badly – although the great HL Mencken once defined it as, ‘the inner voice which warns us that someone may be looking.’ It’s been used by religions as a numinous something-or-other, kindly bestowed by God, to give humans a choice between sin and Paradise.”
My Comment: Our world and our body is a replica of the higher worlds. The only difference is in the program of their work: for one’s own sake, in our world and for others, for the Creator, in the upper world. But all the details are identical.
