I was referring to what I posted rather than what you did. I'm not saying I am right and you are wrong - just that I gave an explanation to illustrate the point I made here!

I think we are dancing with pure semantics here - consciousness, personality, soul, spirit, etc. Everyone has a slightly different interpretation of those terms.

The upshot is I believe we are more than the mechanics of the brain and nervous system....they are the computer and not the software. If your hardware breaks down you may not get much sense out of the software but that does not mean the software, itself, is corrupted!
When Britain first, at Heaven's command arose from out the azure main; this was the charter of the land, and guardian angels sang this strain: "Rule, Britannia, rule the waves: Britons never will be slaves."

James Thomson (1700-1748)
