Divinity Within Ourselves proposes that belief in God naturally arises from the operation of the human brain, particularly from the consciousness of mind itself. Just as our brains project our sensations and perceptual constructs onto the external world, we too apprehend our minds as a whole as immanent in individual objects and the background space of the universe. Belief in God partakes in the inherent unifying processes of the brain, which incorporate our past and present experience of pure mind into our daily lives.
