Like your earlier post

it's as much on topic as Alex's attempts to say "no," which is also very on-topic.

Anticipating Alex's usual objections:
"Feeling" is involved, but if the transaction you described occurs among policy makers and resource rationers, even in the realm of mind, there are major physical consequences. Therefore it is an abstract proposition of
physical science.... just as you said.

How to make it truly scientific, not a matter of authority vested in, seemingly, a non-scientist, is a human communication dilemma, since Jesus does not seem to be present in the conventional sense, taking questions at a podium with the light from an overhead projector shining in Jesus' eyes... and rigorous findings of these kind are not gradually published for scientific peer review.
Most religious talk is much more literary, about motivation, feeling, conscience, love etc.
It's one thing to know all about the chemistry of sex hormones, and another to feel the rush!
Like happily married persons, followers of a loving Eternal Person feel the rush and have all day to enjoy its meaning too.

Please, forgive all the metaphors.
