Many components are interwoven in this scientific description which is unique of its kind in its purport. It presents to the reader the intricate factors which are involved in the working of his brain, reveals to the physician secrets he has missed in his arrival at certain conclusions; adds to the knowledge of the student of the science of Self in general, and to him of the Esoterique in particular, by giving him some new facts and information that would assist him in his treading the path of the inner Self!
The narrative style and scientific simplification used in the book make some medical facts of life easier to understand as it is essential for every person to be acquainted with them. This way, scientific knowledge will no more be restricted to a university degree, as these simplified new facts of life will form an educational encyclopedia, offering specialized information to every person interested in the knowledge of man, and opening a field of experimentation for those searching for the truth of existence.
The writer-physician was concerned to present to the reader the gist of his knowledge and experience which he gained during the “journeys” he made in the intricacies of the human brain! And because he meant to make available his knowledge to any reader, he substituted the dry scientific style, with one easier to understand which is the narrative literary style. This is also meant to clarify better the facts to the general trend of man’s awareness and facilitate its comprehension!
The book also brings to the attention the fact that the brain is not the mind, but that it is the mind’s instrument through which it operates on the physical plane. The mind is a dimension of consciousness, or is in its turn one of its implements in man’s being. It does the programming of the work of the brain, whereas thought is part of the mind.
