If nueroscientists were eventually able to show that the brain is a complex causal structure and that consciousness is a product of the interaction between this causal structure and an acausal universe... would it necessarily take all the wonder out of the phenomenon of consciousness?

I think it makes it even more magical.

Republican Values:

1) You can't get married to your spouse who is the same sex as you.
2) You can't have an abortion no matter how much you don't want a child.
3) You can't have a certain plant in your possession or you'll get locked up with a rapist and a murderer.

4) We need a smaller, less-intrusive government.

More importantly, it solves ALL of the nagging "problems" of when a soul enters or leaves or returns to the body when being born, frozen, dead and revived, aborted; etc.

The proof is in the pudding.

It makes it just as strange and magical (not more though)
