a statement against religion

Conflict with conventional organized religion is another undercurrent of Volta. It’s about being exhausted with the self-importance of religion, and thinking, ’okay, wait a minute, maybe we are one tribe, and we’re actually part of nature.

I was reading a lot of books the last couple of years, especially about things that interest me a lot, like neuroscience, about the two hemispheres and about how we actually are animal species, and, like, female medicine from nature, and how Christianity forced us to ignore nature and the body. There’s a lot of interesting books being written by my generation of scientists that they’re kind of looking at things slightly differently from how I was taught about it, at least when I was 12.
