E. A. HANKINS III, MD, UCLA School of Medicine, Curator of Vertebrate Zoology and Founder of The World Museum of Natural History, Riverside, California
"This book provides a look into the dark pit of reality that lies outside of our usual awareness. Taking a journey into the realm of the building blocks of reality, should prove to be a trip worth taking"
ROBERT C. MARVIT, M.D., Neuropsychiatrist, President Hawaii Medical Association
"It is surprising that despite explosive advances of knowledge about our outer world, we know remarkably little about who we are and how to become happy. Written by an enlightened person, Professor Bruce Morton, this book is a revolution in our knowledge about the human Self."
EUGENE NALIVAIKO, Ph.D., Associate Professor, Neurocardiology Laboratory, School of Biomedical Sciences and Pharmacy, University of Newcastle, Newcastle, NSW 2308, Australia
"Morton has constructed a coherent and provocative model to explain the human experience. This work is a must read for anyone interested in the scientific basis of spirituality."
MARK NOKES, Ph.D., Physicist, Former Vice President of a Silicon Valley company.
"An outstanding thing that this book accomplishes is clearly to demonstrate that the origin and operation of universe, life, and mind are in all regards natural and in no way dependent upon the supernatural, extracorporeal, or spiritual. This purging of our foundations of the cobwebs from
superstition has created a space for the evolution of a belief system fully compatible with science: that of Neuroreality."
DENNIS G. McLAUGHLIN, Ph.D., Neuropsychologist, Co-Founder of Care Hawaii.

As the author states, a false dichotomy has been introduced between the fundamental tenets of world's religious systems (both mainstream and esoteric), and the scientific worldview, forcing us to choose either atheism or spiritualism as our frame of reference. Indeed, the non-supernatural universe appears to exists without plan or purpose, yet within its boundaries life has evolved and humanity thrives. For those who accept the truth of the phenomenal world as revealed in this book, a third alternative emerges: Neuroreality. It is based upon the demonstrable existence of normally suppressed, social brain-based, evolutionary Higher Intelligence. Previously only reached by the thus far uncommon means of Ego-Self death and transcendence, this consciousness has for millennia been misidentified as an external, supernatural God by those who have had the good fortune to experience it. Such ineffable contact has been the origin of all religions. The orientation of this social brain "Holy Spirit" has been uniformly life affirming. However as yet, all religions remain at false cause by imagining that the divinity within each of us is external and supernatural, rather than the life-conserving motivations of our mortal, evolutionary social brain.
As the explorations and subsequent revelations in the book make clear, most of us are currently operating under the spell of the master meme that controls all the other toxic memes (for brevity, we can refer to this as the "ego-self" meme). In addition, as most of us are painfully aware, many of these toxic memes are deadly, i.e., they re-enforce and support the Thanatos force of the mind-brain complex that the author has accurately labeled the "xDARP" - the broken Developmental Arrest Repair Program. In his research, the author has located the existence of the xDARP in an ancient reptilian survival structure earlier identified by neuroscientist Paul McLean, which we have inherited in our long, phylogenetic journey to the present Holocene era. The author makes clear that it is our task as evolving, compassionate seekers of truth to relegate this part of the brain to the status of a vestigial organ, much in the manner of the appendix and its relation to the gastrointestinal tract. i.e., one that no longer serves any useful function in the body and is prone to infection. With the advent of the scientific method going back to Copernicus and Galileo, we have in hand the tools we need to break this spell. It is our task, and indeed our responsibility, as a Race of Conscious Beings within the Zone of Life in our Galactic Home to apply these tools consistently and conscientiously and unify with the divinity present within all of us.
The basis of all this is the updating of the triune model of the human mind (reptilian, paleomammalian and neomammalian) to a quadrimental model (reptilian [instinct], neocerebellar [intuition], limbic [emotion] and cerebral [intellect/imagination]). Each of these has left and right sections, producing a dual quadbrain model with a multitude of complex interconnections. From this comes the concept of hemisity, a classifiable combination of the person's physical gender and their brain's hemispheric polarity. This leads to the most progressive idea in the book, and sure to be the most controversial: Dr. Morton's theory of hemisity crossbreeding, which results in dyslexic, homosexual, transgender, schizophrenic and pedophilic individuals. The existence of conditions like this have never been adequately explained by neurochemical imbalance, lack of nurturing or anything else. It's a truly original idea combining neuroscience, genetics and psychology which gives a plausible scientific explanation to the phenomena (Dr. Morton's 2012 book "Two Human Species Exist: Their Hybrids are Dyslexics, Homosexuals, Pedophiles and Schizophrenics" explores this in even more detail). Another brain-related concept is the xDARP (broken Developmental Arrest Repair Program), the ego-based source of the majority of humanity's woes and problems throughout history. Fortunately, this can be progressively repaired with the appropriate self-reprogramming. Fixing this can allow one to realize their maximum potential in life by encouraging nonviolence, social cohesion and personal spiritual enlightenment. This in turn improves the entire planetary system - something that's sorely needed at this pivotal point in history.
I rate the book 4.5 stars rounded up to 5; it's some heavy reading, and chapters may have to be reread to fully comprehend what's being presented (there's a lot of info here). Your belief systems may get a bit of a challenge as well, and time will tell how these concepts integrate into the mainstream. Keep an open mind; and remember, the scientific community was also initially resistant to the ideas of Freud, Einstein and Darwin.
that replaces our superstitions with a more accurate global view of where we are, where we came from and where we can be going.
In my opinion, it has been well over 1500 years since such a multilayered document completely integrating reality, universe, life, and mind has been written.
I was not only humbled by the enormity of Bruce's science background along with the depth of his spiritual work, but also - and most importantly- I was
enamored with his mastery of their inter-connectedness as described in this "must read work.
