Academic papers and conference presentations can be downloaded from the academia webpage.


The following is a list of theological topics discussed on the website, the name of the essay in which the topic is discussed, and a link to the appropriate section of the essay. As one can see from perusing this list, I have attempted to cover a wide range of topics in a reasonably rigorous manner:

Note: A Programmer's Guide to the Mind was written in 1997, Higher Thought and Lower Motives in 2001, and Biblical Christianity in 2010. I have included references to these three books because they cover a number of basic topics in considerable detail. However, some of the explanations in these books are dated, and I have avoided linking to topics in these books that are explained better in more recent writings.

When I began extending the theory of mental symmetry in 2010, I deliberately avoided quoting from the Bible, because I wanted to go beyond the attitude of fundamentalism by building upon a general theory rather than upon quotes from a holy book. However, even though I am not building upon the Bible, the theory of mental symmetry still leads to results that are consistent with Christian doctrine.

I have recently found that it is possible to use mental symmetry to analyze entire books of the New Testament, doing a verse by verse sequential analysis of the original Greek text. Saying this more clearly, one can use a cognitive model that is consistent in detail with the latest neurological findings to analyze religious writings penned two millennia ago.
