CS Lewis writing on the spirit of higher consciousness

CS Lewis wrote: “The rational and moral element in each human mind is a point of force from the Supernatural working its way into Nature … In the same way the voice of the Announcer is just so much of a human voice as the receiving set [brain] lets through. Of course it varies with the state of the receiving set [brain], and deteriorates as the set wears out and vanishes altogether if I throw a brick at it. It is conditioned by the apparatus [brain] but not originated by it…Reason is something more than cerebral biochemistry. … The Supernatural is not remote and abstruse; it is a matter of daily and hourly experience, as intimate as breathing.” (Miracles, “Answers to Misgivings”)

“And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.” KJV Gen. 2:7

… the image of Himself that God created us to be does not originate in brain waves but, rather, in God’s gift of higher consciousness, in “the mind governed by the Spirit” (NIV Rom. 8:6 as quoted in Living Strong, chapter 16.)
