David Eagleman has shared some really interesting aspects of how the brain works, and what is being discovered and unveiled about this amazing unit of our bodies, that drives everything else. But, he admits to not believing we have a spirit or soul within, which severely limits his view of how the whole person works. In fact, he seems to be saying that we have little to no control or choice at all about how our lives play out. Interestingly, after trying to make a case for our brains being complex computers, he comes around in the last chapter to saying perhaps, just perhaps there is more.
