Evolved consciousness makes possible a rich variety of experience, transmissible from mind to mind via poetical and logical symbolism. Scientific experience involves mapping the energy of the system onto a correspondent mapping and manipulation of energy by the mind. The strength and gushing silence, the feeling of connection and oneness experienced by the swimmer is communicable via logical symbolism. But unlike the gestalt expressions of the poet, careful analysis precedes any synthesis in science, and in order to understand how the mind works in this context, it is necessary to study the brain. The source of both divine and earthly experience is the brain.
