New study provides strong evidence that their isn't two separate streams of consciousness

It looks like the evidence that materialist's have been touting as powerful evidence against substance dualism. Which it would be if true. That is if there is two separate consciousnesses when you split the Corpus Callousum. However a new study has now provided strong evidence that clearly shows that two separate consciousness is very unlikely. It is welcome news, for Substance Dualist's such as myself who strongly support this view. This particular evidence for two consciousnesses in a brain was used in a new book called the Myth of an Afterlife well it looks like now that interpretation of the evidence is wrong. There is no consciousness split when you split the brain.

This experiment is expected to be repeated several more times says the researcher Yair Pinto.

Here is the study here.

Happy New Year!!!

I hope you had an awesome Christmas and may 2017 which is now here be awesome as well. I need to address something that I consider important. There is a case of a man who apparently lives with 10 percent of his brain intact only. Neurologist Steven Novella, questioned this because this would be possible evidence against the view that the brain somehow produces the brain. He tries to go with a materialist explanation to explain this case. However, numerous scientist's are rather puzzled by this particular case and are having a very hard time finding a materialist explanation for it. Michael Prescott does a great job of dismantling the superplasticity explanation that Steven Novella is using.

Interesting case here as well of a lady who has above average IQ even though she is a hydrocephalic.
