Sensed presence

“Who is the third who always walks beside you? When I count, there are only you and I together. But when I look ahead up the white road. There is always another one walking beside you.

The Waste Land, T. S. Eliot 1922

Neurotheology, also known as spiritual neuroscience, attempts to explain religious experience and behaviour in neuroscientific terms. It is the study of correlations of neural phenomena with subjective experiences of spirituality and hypotheses to explain these phenomena. These works investigate neurotheologies ideas in the context of Posthumanism and Transhumanism and the catastrophes and possibilities that these ideas posit. These works intend to question the phenomena of ‘sensed presence’ but also question the ethics and morality of scientific progression.
