Just saw this article about some people wanting to research if stem cells can revive medically braindead patients! A lot of the trials will probably be in countries with lax ethics laws, so it will be experimented on poor people first, which is kind of sad, but this is also exciting!
i know a lot of people believe the brain and soul are connected in some way. @supernokturnal for example believes that the souls dies with the body and that the brain and soul are one and the same or necessarily connected.
I kind of believe that the entire body “generates” the soul in much the same way it might generate a “aura” or electromagnetic force, but they could be different things/have different uses. And I do think they are all pretty connected to one another so that changes in one “area” would impact other areas (e.g. soul being ill would affect body’s energy or initiative in some way–but is this a problem of duality or are they just in the same thing?).
So what say any of you?
Do you think that a “resurrected” person would be the same person? Or would the regenerated brain create a new soul or personality in them? A lot of times when a person has extensive or acute brain damage or even a tumour, their whole personality can shift.
This can be a breakthrough for neurodegenerative diseases, but what happens to the “person”?
Would you want to undergo such a chance for regeneration and “life after brain death” if you could? And would that even be “you” who is being resurrected? Or would it be a new person taking over the spot of your old life?
