Tell me about your childhood and how you formed the dedication page of your book?

DEDICATION

 

There are three people whose inspiration helped to create this book. It is to them, that I humbly make this dedication.


To my father, John Grant Turner, and my mother, Alberta Banner Turner. They taught me the virtue in taking the road less traveled. They understood that the IQ level is not as important as the “I Quit” level. In addition, had they been here with me in 2008 and early 2009, they would be filled with pride as I add a third person to this dedication, President Barack Obama.


Two extraordinary events took place on January 3, 2008. That morning, after many months of contemplation, I finally realized that my book’s most important message was a spiritual one, not a racial one. Later that day, I sat down to watch the results of the Iowa presidential caucuses. The voters of Iowa, predominantly white, had launched Barack Obama on the path to the Presidency of the United States! He won Iowa by being focused with his message.  I realized then that I could do no less with my book, to focus it on my own experiences as a Western-trained neurosurgeon, driven by the need to understand the link between human consciousness and the body’s capacity to be healed. 


On that day, this book began moving with a renewed energy toward my goal of publication. That creative force was delivered to me in Hawai’i, by the people of Iowa, through the true diligence of Barack Obama.


Thank you Mother Alberta, Father John and President Obama.

With that most important information taken care of, I will move on to what prompted me to go into Physics, then medicine and surgery.

All through childhood and as a young adult, I wanted to design aircraft. Fate stepped in after I completed the second year of a five-year engineering physics program. At the time, I thought that I had made the choice. In retrospect, I had no choice . . . it was part of the plan unfolding. The next thing I knew, all thoughts of aeronautical engineering were out the window and my life as a physicist took shape.

How does one make such a shift from physics to neurosurgery and then to metaphysics?

Engineering physics was indeed difficult, but not “too” difficult for me. I graduated in 1969 and continued in graduate school with the goal of obtaining a doctorate in physics. After two years of graduate studies in the department of physics, the first inkling of metaphysics (the branch of philosophy that examines the nature of reality, including the connection between mind and matter, substance and attribute, fact and value) appeared in the form of a book entitled The Sleeping Prophet. This was the first of many books, which would significantly affect the course of my life. It was about Edgar Cayce, a man of average intelligence and little formal education, but having a particular gift: He could place himself in a trance state and extract information concerning illness, medical treatments and a plethora of other subjects from an unseen dimension and for the most part, unknown place in time and space. This was a fascinating book, in fact, so engaging that it soon led me directly into the office of the curriculum advisor of the physics department.

What is the difference between a neurologist and a neurosurgeon?

A neurologist diagnosis and treats diseases of the nervous system by taking an accurate history and performing a detailed neurological examination. Often tools such as the electroencephalogram (EEG) and electromyogram (EMG) are used to aid in the diagnosis. He or she may see disease entities that range from seizure disorders to degenerative diseases of the brain and spinal cord. If it can be treated medically, the neurologist is in a position to provide the proper treatment and care for the patient.
