Thank you for the lengthy quote.
I'm not exactly sure what point you were making.
Would it be possible to clarify?
My objective is limited to that of proving the inviolability of karma.
Please note that neuro-science has made huge advances since 1962.
I believe that a hard-science like neuro-science produces results that are more irrefutable because the premises of the logical argument can be reduced to the level of irrefutable empirical evidence. So, while there is always uncertainty, the uncertainty is reduced to the level of "Can I believe the information gathered via my 5 senses?".
To the best of my knowledge here are the facts that I know of from neuro-science as it pertains to proving the inviolability of karma via the logic of my proof:
1) All animals are driven to pursue pleasure and avoid pain.
The ancient amygdala hub the neurological component that determines what is pleasure and what is pain.
2) All decisions are made twice.
There is the initial impulsive fear-driven decision which is made in the amygdala hubm
Then there is the reasoned decision which is made in the anterior cingulate cortex hub.
The later is the seat of "self-regulation" it enables us to over-ride the primal decisions that we make.
3) The circuitry for empathy is attached to the anterior cingulate cortex hub and is integral to our ability to self-regulate our destructive emotions.
This is because empathy evolved as a means for us to accurately ascertain the intentions of others.
The ability enabled superior self-regulation capabilities which enabled us to accurately make decisions about when we should be fearful and when we should take risks to seize opportunities.
4) What we call "happiness" is a state of calm in the amygdala.
Maintaining this state of calm *requires* us to keep our empathy on at all times because that's how our brain evolved.
Whenever we connect with someone and hurt them we feel their pain as if it were our own.
If we choose to maintain a state of disharmony with our conscience by refusing to atone for hurting them, the only way to do this is to battle with our own thoughts to switch off our empathy for them.
But we are destroying our own ability to be happy in the long term by doing so.
The more people we hurt the more we hurt them the greater the internal tension that we create and the more intense the internal war becomes.
The desire to return to a state of harmony with our conscience is primal and unrelenting because we need to have this in order to have enduring happiness.
This is the force that drives us to unconsciously enforce karma.
If there is any aspect of this argument that is unconvincing, please attack that aspect directly.
As a firm believer in the scientific method and someone who highly values truth I am very open to being proven wrong.
But I am also fairly certain that I am right.
And I also believe that the consequences of this could be quite extra-ordinary.
