Scientists are still puzzling over how a conglomerate lump, like the brain, can give rise to the mind and consciousness. It's like the material giving rise to the immaterial. At a recent conference, one scientist proposed that the tendency to form the spiritual, or immaterial, was inherent in all matter, even rocks, water, waste. But what is the source of this tendency? It's the same as the source of matter. And what is the source of matter?
It reminds me of how angry and incensed the Soviets became when Friedmann (a Russian) and Lemaitre (a Belgian) proposed a verifiable theory that the universe had a beginning. This imperiled the Soviet dogma that the universe always was, and gave support to the belief in a Creator. The Soviets took revenge on Friedmann, but Lemaitre was fortunately beyond their reach.
Adding to the puzzle is the existence of dark matter and energy. Your seven-year-old granddaughter will solve it by saying it was made by God, and a Princeton physicist will reluctantly verify that dark matter keeps the galaxies from flying apart. There is your evidence that on occasion, as Einstein said, the problems of the universe have a simple solution. Remember E=mc (squared)?
