Mark Brady’s Latest Post: The Neurobiology of Forgiveness

I’ve referred you to Mark’s blog before, but I just finished reading The Neurobiology of Forgiveness, and felt I needed to help get this one out there. Mark is doing an amazing job of distilling reams of science-babble into nuggets we mere peons can grasp.

Freud was convinced that ultimately we would discover the biological processes that drive personality and perception. The mystics, past and present, have all been convinced that we are capable of being so much more human than we are. Neurobiology seems to be providing a lens through which to understand the biology of becoming human.

I’m telling you…. this stuff is amazing. Of course, that’s probably what Copernicus was thinking also…

  1. The Enigma Chronicles says:

    It doesn’t take a genius to know how forgiving can literally transform us. It may take a genius to figure out how the brain functions to “forget” a transgression once it has been forgiven. Perhaps forgetting after forgiving is only for the Divine.
