The human brain and relationship with the soul - education, effects of sin, life in the beyond
How could any creation develop from any ever so rare matter, since all matter, including man’s brain is nothing but pure matter and hence can never be a creator but only a creation?! (Book 4, 4:2)
5] With people whose love has not yet awakened thus, the thoughts, although forming in the heart as well, on account of the latter being still too material, are not discerned within same but only in the brain, where the thoughts of the heart, already more material on account of the arousal to action, develops pictorially, amalgamating with the images which have imprinted themselves in the brain tablets [pyramids, the trans.] from the outside world through the body’s sensors, becoming so to say material and bad in the soul’s view and therefore having to also be regarded as the necessarily evil basis for men’s deeds. (Book 4,4:5)
 The earthly intelligence of the brain can therefore never accept and understand something purely spiritual, because it has been given to man only for the necessary care for his body. Such a thing can only be done by the divine spirit in the heart; it must therefore be practiced from early on.(Book 7, 68:22)
64. THE STRUCTURE OF THE HUMAN BRAINS
 (The Lord:) “But now let’s see, if we are able to obtain a little brain board for your better understanding! Indeed, we could obtain a couple of natural human heads from Rome by Raphael, since just now two main criminals have been beheaded in Rome, even on the Capitol, but with those skulls of villains it would help us only a little or nothing at all!
 It thus should happen that the angel should bring us four completely white and totally pure pebbles from any stream. From this we will try to present a human brain, as good this is possible with matter. – Raphael, go and bring what is required!”
 Raphael was suddenly invisible, for about seven moments long; but then all of a sudden he was again with us and placed four completely snow white pebbles in front of us, this is in front of Me, on the table. Two were larger and two smaller, corresponding to the larger front head brain for illuminated pictures and the smaller back head brain for the signs of sound.
 When the stones lay before Me in the right order, I touched them, and they became transparent like a purest rock crystal. Thereupon I breathed at them and they parted in to millions of four sided little pyramids, each one consisting out of three outer surfaces and the base surface.
