During the course of a day, you can have hundreds even thousands of thoughts, each one becoming the “now” of the moment. IBM devised a computer that drew a tie with the human brain of Russian chess champion Gary Kasparov but could that IBM computer be a match for Kasparov’s intelligent soul? Discover where intelligence, wisdom, thought, voice, love, passion, memory, imagination, happiness, fantasy, anger, jealousy, and doubt originate and how they are expressed by our souls and human brains. Learn with scientist/spiritualist Jerry Pollock who has an imaginary interview with Methuselah's Divine soul in the spirit world while Jerry's wife Marcia's soul will join in on future conversations.
The Soul Functions Independently of the Human Brain:
We know that the bodiless soul in Heaven lives on for the eternity, that the soul is essential for the body to have life, and that the bodiless soul in the spirit world has its own separate intelligence independent of the human brain. However we need to also inquire about the soul constrained within our physical bodies here on earth. This interview was conducted through imaginary telepathic communication between Jerry’s soul inside his physical body and the bodiless soul of Methuselah in the spirit world. Marcia’s soul in Heaven also joined us for the interview.
Methuselah: Jerry I’ll grant you leeway on what the three of us so far have discussed about the Divine soul. However a lot of people, including your scientific colleagues are going to think that your suggestions are way out there. And now you want me to believe that the soul is equally important in function to our physical bodies. Aren’t you overreaching a wee tad bit my young scientist friend?
Jerry: I really don’t think so, Methuselah. I must remind you that when we discuss the spiritual world of the soul, we go beyond the ability of explanations from science. As Albert Einstein said, “We cannot attack a problem at the level the problem was created.” With all due respect sweet old man, you are relying on your human brain to try and resolve problems related to your soul. It can’t be done. I can’t emphasize enough that science cannot explain miracles nor can miracles explain science. Yet my belief is that God created our world through scientific miracles.
Marcia: Hi honey. I’ll add to Jerry’s point by stating that we have confirmed everything we propose together through my bodiless soul’s intelligence in the spirit world which is one-hundred times more powerful than Jerry’s soul constrained in his body in the physical world. And Jerry has expertly learned to ask questions of and get answers from his Divine soul by measuring his internal special electromagnetic soul energy.
Methuselah: Now that you both have enlightened me on your non scientific claims, give me just one example that demonstrates the power of the soul in the human body.
Jerry: Methuselah, you didn’t have tape recorders in your day.
Marcia: We know what they are from our library studies in the soul world, so Methuselah is familiar with tape recorders even though he has never used one.
Jerry: Okay! If you listen to a tape of your voice, it doesn’t sound like the voice you hear when you speak aloud. I sound so different listening to my voice than I sound if I tape myself and then listen to my voice. Most people have a unique voice they project to others. Marcia is telepathically communicating her thoughts right now and she sounds exactly like she sounded when she was alive in her body.
Marcia: You see dear Methuselah, people hear your voice that originates in your soul and is then expressed in your human brain by the saliva, tongue, larynx and voice box. The combination of the two, your soul and human brain, gives each person that unique voice that projects out to other people.
Methuselah: But why does Jerry hear a different voice when he speaks?
Jerry: I listen to my own voice only through the speech apparatus of my human brain. My soul is not involved. Marcia I have a question I never asked you before. I know you told me that you have a tiny fragment of your human brain that left with you when you died, but do you and Methuselah hear your own voice in the soul world the same way I hear my own voice when I speak?
Marcia: Yes Jerry we do, but we don’t have the same bodily Voice apparatus that you have because we don’t have physical bodies. It’s done though an alternative mechanism in our soul brain that even we don’t understand. Its’ exactly the same sound of our voice that we hear in the soul world to what we heard when we were alive. It’s not our projected voice that you are hearing now.
Methuselah: All very fascinating but let’s move on. We are speaking silently by thought energy communication but could we speak aloud?
Jerry: My guess is that sound wave communication would be far too slow. Right now we connect through thought-energy telepathic communication. The thought originates and is expressed in our souls, not our human brains. Only God because of His limitless energy is capable of somehow communicating in a loud voice, as He did when He spoke the Ten Commandments at Mount Sinai to the ancient Israelites. I have been blessed to hear God’s Voice in life and so has Marcia.
Marcia: They all originate in the human soul. Wisdom is different than your human intelligence or IQ which originates in your left brain. Wisdom represents all your years of following the spiritual path as it allows you to think out of the box and truly solve problems on a different level than where the problem was created. As Job famously quoted in the Bible, “Days speak and a multitude of years teach wisdom.” Wisdom comes with age and represents the accumulation of life’s spiritual intelligence through your SQ or spiritual quotient that comes from your soul energy in your right brain and is expressed there but can cross over and affect your left brain. Your spiritual intelligence can help with your human IQ or brain intelligence, as the left and right brains come into balance. Fantasy, imagination, and love of art and music originate in your soul and are expressed in your right brain. Your love of art and music also comes from the passion of the spiritual energy of your heart and is expressed by your physical heart.
Methuselah: What about doubt? Human beings are prone to doubt.
Jerry: God gave us doubt so that those disinterested in Him could exert their free will and not believe Him. However, doubt has crept into every facet of our lives. The left brain controls procrastination and doubt. There is no connection to your soul. The same is true when you dwell upon and fear death. One thing that we just touched upon in our book is that you can ameliorate and reduce your fear of death with belief in God and the eternity of the soul.
Methuselah: Jerry, you and Marcia have a great love. Where does the feeling of love come from? Is it your brain?
Jerry: No, not your brain, at least if you ask the question, “Where does love originate?” True love originates in the pintele yid, the soul energy of your heart, and the love is expressed in your physical heart which also gives us the passion of loving someone or something. The pintele yid is the place where you activate the sparks of your spirituality. The heart has numerous neurons traveling through it like the brain and there are neuron connections from the brain to all your body organs including your heart. You also feel your emotions in the feeling parts of your brain. The same is true for happiness, joy, laughter and sadness. You feel rejection and sadness in your heart like the expression, ‘a broken heart.’ Your human brain is responsible for dwelling on this sadness or putting an emotional spin on this sadness. Grief is the same as sadness as I constantly feel in the present on losing Marcia.
Methuselah: But Marcia you and I don’t have a physical heart.
Marcia: Nevertheless I still feel sadness and love for Jerry in my bodiless soul. I just don’t have the passion that I had in my physical body when I was alive. That’s one of the main reasons we come back and reincarnate or incarnate into a new body. We want to come back and feel that passion high that we get in our physical bodies. We can’t get that strictly with our souls. Because we retain a small piece of our human brains, we still retain the five senses but to a lower degree than when we were in our physical bodies.
Methuselah: And the negative emotions such as intentional anger and jealousy, we don’t feel these emotions in the soul world.
Jerry: True. These negative emotions are the product of the left brain. Our free souls don’t feel negative emotions. An evil inclination resides in the left brain and this triggers jealousy and non-called-for anger. Some anger is justified in life if someone is treating you unfairly. It’s natural to feel legitimately angry sometimes or even a lot.
Methuselah: What about memory?
Jerry: Well of course the human brain has the necessary components of memory for both the conscious and subconscious states. The soul too acting as a mini brain has its own memory bank. That memory bank is wiped out after the fetus is born but it’s recovered again when the soul leaves the body at the time of death and returns to the spirit world. Because of past lives, the soul while still in the body also has a hidden memory bank that can be activated through hypnosis, meditation, or in other ways.
Methuselah: Last question. Can you be wealthy and spiritual at the same time? I already know the answer to that question. It’s Yes providing you use your wealth for spiritual purposes. Time to close up shop, children.
Jerry: I look forward to being interviewed by you again. Bye, Methuselah. Bye Marcia.
Marcia: Bye luvee.
Note from Jerry:
Methuselah’s words are a creation of Jerry’s mind. Jerry has never contacted Methuselah’s soul in the spirit world but has continuous contact with Marcia’s soul.
My name is Jerry J. Pollock and I am retired Professor Emeritus from Stony Brook University, where for thirty years I was an academic and research scientist publishing seventy-five scientific articles including seven patents. I have bachelors and masters degrees in Pharmacy from the University of Toronto, a PhD in Biophysics in 1969 from the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel, and postdoctoral training in Microbiology from New York University Medical Center. Because of God intervening in my life with His miracles, I have an unshakable faith and belief in Him and I infuse my writing of my fiction and non-fiction books as well as my stage plays with both science and spirituality in a way that is done by no one else on the planet. In Putting God Into Einstein's Equations: Energy of the Soul, I wrote from our earthly world and my wife Marcia's soul suggested and confirmed from the spirit world.
