The Bridge of Life: How The Integration of Science and Spirit Heals Us!
We live in extraordinary times in which the so-called STEM fields (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) are at once joining with, and informing us further of the deep bases of spirituality. There exists a "place" where both domains merge and with that, new creation occurs. In truth (and considered from the perspective of a "higher" level of consciousness) the two domains have always been one. Today however, we are becoming more aware of the ways in which they join together, forming a bridge which brings humanity to a place of renewed promise, new creation and of healing. This in turn transforms not only STEM but Spirit too. We are witness today to extraordinary developments in both domains taken individually and together.

I will present a general framework describing how the two domains relate to one another. We will discuss certain principles from physics, biological science, mathematics (including geometry) and how these point toward, and correlate with the spiritual principles embodied in so-called Hebraic Sacred Science, sometimes referred to as Kabbalah. We will show how certain fairly recent discoveries/developments in STEM relate to biblical teachings and information, and how these in turn lead to increased healing of ourselves, our world and all creation.

Dr. Michael E. Brandt straddles The Bridge of Life! A native New Yorker, Michael moved to Houston in 1979. With two partners he formed a tech startup doing Apple II development. At the same time, armed with a bachelor's degree in physics and experience as a tech writer/editor, he entered the newly formed graduate program in biomedical engineering at the University of Houston. He taught electronics technology at HCC for one year before going to work as a research associate for the UT Medical Branch, Galveston (Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences). While there, Michael developed hardware and software systems to measure human EEGs and other brain responses.

For six years, he researched how the brain responds to various types of stimuli and how our brainstates are altered as a result. This work culminated in a 500 page doctoral dissertation and a number of research articles published in the scientific literature. Michael moved to the UT Medical School in Houston (also in the Department of Psychiatry) where he was appointed professor and Director of the Neurosignal Analysis Laboratory.

Michael worked for UT Health for 20 years (26 total in the UT System) and was awarded tenure in the medical school (one of the few engineers to have achieved this). His research spans many areas of biology: neuroscience, psychophysiology, cardiology, immunology, pediatrics and computational biomedicine (a field he helped to form).

Michael also experienced spiritual awakenings. In particular, Kabbalah is a passion for him and has been present in his life from a young age. He has studied and taught topics having to do with Kabbalah for more than ten years. He is also passionate about how these two aspects of life—STEM and Spirit merge. Michael is now "Your Whole Health Coach" advising individuals and groups, helping them create sustainable plans to recover or achieve health and then maintain it for the long haul (and slow down the aging process!). Michael also practices a powerful form of energy healing work based on the deep wisdom of Kabbalah combined with biomedical science.
