Body or Brain that’s the question.
The question has been asked
“Are we the whole body or just the brain?”
My thoughts on this subject are that we are NOT the physical self. Rather we are a Soul wearing a human suit.
Maybe that sounds a little simple but why muck it all up with a lot of fancy words to explain the same thing?
I observed my mother minutes after she died and I can honestly say there is quite a difference between a living body inhabited by a Soul, and a dead body that is Soulless.
An inhabited Soul filled body, has a glow about it. Especially if the soul is a good one and lives to do good.
A body that is uninhabited (Dead) somehow has no glow, has a darkness, or shade over it. It’s not scary, just empty.
So my friend, in my opinion, look not to the body for it is a finite thing, instead look to the ethereal for there you will find infinity and wisdom of eternity.
