“contemporary researchers have found neurological connections between religious or trance experience and female sexuality.  in womans brains there are unique neural links between the forebrain and the cerebellum, which allow sensations of physical pleasure to be directly integrated into the neocortex.  this explains why some women experience orgasm so intense that they enter “religious” trance, or altered states of consciousness.  at this ecstatic female orgasmic experience, in which the physical and the spiritual are fused and realized as one, is at the core of all mystical experience.  the reaserchers conclude that it is women wbo must take the lead in further human evolution- toward the integration of the conscious and unconscious mind and to a more profound understanding of the spiritual nature of the species.”
