that was fantastically interesting. You know, I don't listen to many podcasts, and right now none of them have new episodes.

I'm glad I've got six more of these to listen to.

On a related theme to the idea of captain Kirk swapping minds is the notion that the universe contains more than the observable four dimensions. In recent times physicists believe that the universe is actually ten or eleven dimensional. If this is the case then perhaps some of what we regard as "mental processes" are actually taking place in these extra dimensions. Perhaps its activity in the other dimensions, which are not directly observable to us, which is what we commonly refer to as a "soul".

That's a very interesting theory, bob. Do you have sources for additional information on this? (Not the extra-dimensional part, I was aware of that, but specifically the idea of the workings of the "soul" being resident in another dimension)? This sounds somewhat akin to the idea of quantum computers where the multi-processing is taking place in multiple dimensions. I.e. Michael Crighton's "Timeline" in some respects...
