Using the modern science to approach some sort of understanding Duality we must look at conscious Out of Body Experiences. Chapter 3 starting on page 62 of our book presents this as simply a perspective to how our brain interprets information. Science suggests the unexplained is misrepresentations in the computer style input output of our "computer like programming" brains. The ability for people to perceive, an example of error I have personally experienced is through my grandmother. She insisted she saw the 9-11 attacks first hand due too the severity of the seemingly un-real situation we were all so suddenly presented with; now I know she wasn't there because she moved to California in the 90's and never visited NJ. But she applied the visual images seen on TV to the ones she personally remembered years earlier, giving he a sort of Out of Body vision of the events occurring. This is an example of the perception error that is presented in understanding Duality and consciousness.

Dualistic Paranormal Belief & Science
The idea that the soul cannot die and leaves the body has been around for ages, the Egyptians were an example I'm sure most are familiar with, especially since they has the most elaborate ceremony's as to ensure life after death. In Western culture some even believed they could capture the soul and prevent it from escaping after death. these cultures also believed that during dreams your soul is actually traveling around. Traditional belief is based on the separation between body and soul; the body is simply a vessel for the soul.
