Scientific Research & Self-Development Activism
(includes music that didn't make it into the film)
'God is in The Neurons' is the first chapter of the 'Athene's Theory of Everything' documentary and covers the research that was done by Chiren Boumaaza, (aka 'Athene',) in the year 2010 -- which was why he disappeared from his usual viral YouTube series for most of that year. Known mainly for his record-setting World of Warcraft and online poker stunts and for the extravagance he portrays in his videos, Boumaaza has been seen as a genius by some, a 'troll' by others, but as an incredibly capable gamer and entertainer by most.
Developments in neuroscience and sociology from the past decades have shed light on many aspects of human psychology that are only now beginning to be discussed in the fields of 'self-help' and self-development. While there is a lot of literature on the subject from authors that range from popular lifecoaches such as Tony Robbins to spiritual teachers like Eckhart Tolle, Chiren saw a huge lack in material that takes a purely scientific approach. 'God is in The Neurons' makes important correlations about mirror neurons, neuroplasticity, memory, social dynamics, evolution, altruism and identity.
