On this episode of IDTF CSC's Anika Smith interviews science writer Denyse O'Leary about her new book, The Spiritual Brain.

In the book O'Leary and her co-author Mario Beaurogard, neuroscientist and Associate Professor at Université de Montréal, explore the question of whether or not the mind is an illusion as materialists believe, or is it more than that? For instance, The Spiritual Brain looks at whether religious experiences come from God, or are they merely the random firing of neurons in the brain? Drawing on his own research with Carmelite nuns, Beauregard shows that genuine, life-changing spiritual events can be documented. He and O'Leary offer compelling evidence that mind creates matter rather than matter creating mind.
