    if it is truly separate than the ceasing of brain functions would not affect your existence.
    very good

    now !

    look at it like this

    the brain is yours - its 100% functional

    the mind is not yours - you hold 10% of it for a time

    the idea of the mind and brain being one has always made the most sense to me logically, though i've heard psychedelic experiences defy explanation.
    the brain is really distributed throughout the body

    If you (impersonal you) wouldn't have any contact with religion or philosophy, would you ever think by yourself that the soul/mind is separate from the brain?
    You just think it's separate because other's religions and philosophies stirred confusion and made it look absurd for you to think you simply don't exist after your physical disappearance.
    It was all created because of people's fear of nothingness.

    personally

    religion/philosophy didn't influence me to ask the question
    not directly any way

    the light/sound energy that feed the mind comes from outside the mind

    its really much more simple than people wanna make it

    those with a robot mentality wanna get all scientifically difficult when its not called for

    i think that if we were isolated from science religion and philosophy and left to ponder our existance, i think the longest jump would be to the scientific theory. to believe that what "makes you you" is nothing more than a collection of electrical impulses and chemical reactions is absurd.

    3 problems with this.

    1.) It sounds way too good to be true. It sounds very much like a glurge, a feel-good urban legend.

    But more importantly,

    2.) Even if this is true, are we forgetting that a FUCKING CHILD is saying this? I know everyone likes to think that the innocence of children is something divine and that their whimisical insights are evidence of something higher and more important and it helps us get through the day, but being realistic............... There's a reason why it's so hard to get reliable legal testimonies from children, main reasons being that children are pretty much wired to please adult authority figures (so it's very easy to accidentally - or purposely - lead them to a conclusion) and they sometimes don't have a clear distinction between reality and their own imaginations.

    3.) I don't believe for a second that anyone can remember anything from before their birth. A zygote has no fucking brain. Infants don't even have long-term memory.

    You seem to think I'm foaming at the mouth whenever I make my posts. I'm just rather cynical and caustic whenever I make replies to things I find incredibly dumb.
