Modern Science and the Higher Self
Choong Chi Pin
continues sharing this talk by Annie Besant that was first published in 1915. She says:
"…Out of all these
experiments there arose again the question: What then is the relation
between consciousness and the brain ? It was established that, with
paralysis of the brain, consciousness becomes more active than it was before.
The result of these
experiments on the condition of mental faculties, was a proof that whatever
the dream consciousness of man might be, it was far wider in extent, far
more powerful, than the same consciousness working through the physical
brain. Thus gradually way was made for the recognition of the fact,
well-known to the eastern psychologists, that the waking consciousness is
only a part, an imperfect and fragmentary expression, of the total
consciousness of man…."
