Download E-books Las neuronas de Dios: Una neurociencia de la religión, la espiritualidad y la luz al final del túnel (Ciencia que ladra... serie Mayor) PDF

By Diego Golombek

Muchos pensarán que este es un libro más sobre el eterno enfrentamiento entre l. a. ciencia y los angeles religión, entre los angeles fuerza de los angeles razón y l. a. fuerza de los angeles fe. Nada de eso. Diego Golombek propone una mirada mucho más novedosa e interesante. Por primera vez, las ciencias naturales pueden estudiar l. a. religión en lugar de burlarse de ella; por primera vez, los angeles ciencia puede responder una pregunta inquietante: ¿por qué, en pleno siglo XXI, seguimos creyendo en algo o alguien better, llámese Dios, meditación trascendental, espiritualidad o sentido de l. a. vida? ¿De dónde surge esta necesidad, antigua como nuestra especie, que en algún momento de nuestras vidas nos lleva a preguntarnos por lo que habrá “después” o lo que está “más allá”? ¿Viene “de fábrica” o es un producto de los angeles cultura?

En su viaje al corazón de las creencias, Diego Golombek pasa revista a un sinfín de experimentos que muestran cómo actúan las neuronas de monjas rezadoras, budistas meditadores, pentecostales o iluminados con LSD, peyote, ayahuasca y hongos alucinógenos varios. Sin olvidar a las personas que han atravesado experiencias límite, como trances epilépticos o los angeles vivencia de los angeles propia muerte con los angeles misteriosa luz al ultimate del túnel. Los resultados permiten identificar circuitos neuronales que están en l. a. base de visiones y experiencias místicas. Y hay más: los estudios revelan también que los angeles religión tiene un efecto ansiolítico, estimula los angeles empatía con los demás y los lazos comunitarios, y aporta mayor seguridad personal.

Con sentido del humor y una claridad a toda prueba, Diego Golombek llega a poner sobre los angeles mesa del laboratorio su propio mapa genético y sus experiencias personales para marcar los hitos de un recorrido imperdible, ¡nada menos que l. a. búsqueda de Dios en los pliegues del cerebro humano!
