If I were forced to interpret J Neil Schulman's book from a purely non-spiritual and atheistic point of view I might conclude that he has chosen to interpret his experience as another case of the "I am god" fallacy. Fortunately, I am not operating under any such compulsion.
The religious impulse has been variously interpreted as anything from an expression of the need to force an explanation on the unexplained to the misidentification of the subconscious with the supernatural. There is a great deal of truth to those assumptions when we consider all the great fallacious superstitions of past religion, that have been exposed as false by rational observation and modern science. However, J Neil Schulman labors under no such delusion.
"The Lord ain't my shepherd
Cause I ain't no sheep.
I'm a god in a body
Not Little Bo Peep."
What is the essence of the individual human identity? We might call it the personality or the ego, that which makes me, me. Is it any less real to call it the soul, the spirit or the divine spark? I do not see why it should be, if we are talking about the same thing. Thus, the above poem could be misleading to anyone who decides not to read further.
Schulman is a philosopher, not a theologian. He writes about his own personal experience and his interpretation of that experience, and never demands that we accept his view on faith. He is not trying to create a cult following. He is attempting to open a reasoned discussion. Basically, his is telling us a story, a story about what happened to him, and what he thinks it means.Read more ›
