    In the first few pages of the Upanishad we came to understand. The state of meditation translate a migration from a low spiritual altitude to a higher one in search of the Self and the Atman soul within, lost between the daily struggles of life , envy, and the ego. To recognize the Atman soul within us one needs to find the barrier that stop us from experiencing infinite consciousness.

These two propositions provide the foundation of Searle’s conclusion, biological naturalism, and his refutation of dualism. If those two propositions are…
