Nuggets from Occult Invasion—Defining the Spiritual |

Dave Hunt

In his 1992 book, Consciousness Explained, Tuft University philosopher Daniel Dennett contended that “consciousness—and our sense that we possess a unified self—was an illusion arising out of the interaction of many different ‘subprograms’ run on the brain’s hardware.” There is just as much scientific evidence for Santa Claus and the tooth fairy. While some psychologists still cling to such madness, psychology as a whole has moved on—forced to do so by the phenomena it faces. It is no longer embarrassing to admit that the human spirit and/or soul exist and that they cannot be measured or defined.
