Enlightenment linked to brain function

According to a new study by the University of Missouri, spiritual feelings may actually be the result of a lower-functioning right parietal lobe, the area of the brain that defines one’s egoic sense. The study monitored the brain activity of monks and nuns as well as non-religious subjects who had experienced recent brain damage. Results showed that more religious subjects had lower electrical activity in the right parietal lobe, a region of the brain related to egoic individuation.
