Its plausible that certain areas of the brain are "activated" or "energized" when engaged in Buddhist meditation and other practices of conscious-awareness.

Let's keep on topic fellows. :focus:
NDE's, meditation/ science and all that stuff can be discussed in the Lounge, if you want.
I for one would like to keep this discussion focused.

Thanks.

By understanding everything you perceive from the perspective of the view, you are freed from the constraints of philosophical beliefs.
By understanding that any and all mental activity is meditation, you are freed from arbitrary divisions between formal sessions and postmeditation activity.

Anyone who would say, 'Repudiating this All, I will describe another,' if questioned on what exactly might be the grounds for his statement, would be unable to explain, and furthermore, would be put to grief. Why? Because it lies beyond range." Sabba Sutta.

So the recognition is not discriminating? More like knowing the flavor of the base?
