I think your comparison to

I think your comparison to God is a very important one.  Paul and I discussed today that -- if Emily Dickenson is correct -- God and the brain are synonymous.  To me, this makes sense.  The brain creates out world: the sky, the people, the emotions -- everything.  Isn't this strikingly similar to the 7-days in which God created the earth, and man in his image?  If God is man's brain, and man's brain creates reality, the story of God and creation seems plausible to consider, philosophically.
