Overview

An unexpected parallel between modern scientific findings and an age-old teaching may point to the answer. Split-brain research shows that the two hemispheres of the brain house separate mentalities, providing both linear and nonlinear perceptions of the world. In a startlingly similar vein, an ancient belief known as the Binary Soul Doctrine holds that at death we have both linear and nonlinear experiences of the afterlife. Using neuropsychology as a foundation, Peter Novak takes us on a remarkable adventure, showing how the binary soul doctrine reconciles many of humanity's most divisive spiritual controversies, including disparities between views of reincarnation, resurrection, and non-survival of death; between science and religion; and between Eastern and Western philosophies. Indeed, this ancient teaching offers the key to understanding virtually all present and past belief systems about death and the afterlife. This long-forgotten concept provides timely answers for today. It unites rather than divides. It reveals instead of conceals. And it offers freedom in place of repression and deception. Unfortunately, it is an answer few realize even exists.
