  1. If we upload our thoughts into a computer and still be concious it proves that we are a mind equipped with a body and then equipped with a computer. But we probably wouldn't be able to

  2. Imagine putting your mind in a computer, and then someone hacks it and gives you false memories

  3. WE ARE BOTH BODY AND MIND THEY ARE BOTH PART OF WHAT WE ARE TEMPORARILY. SHE TRICKED US TO THINK WE ARE EVEN PHYSICAL BY NOT INCLUDING THE TRUTH THAT GOD HAS GIVEN US BOTH THE MIND ABD THE BODY AND S O U L .

  4. If everything is physical then we should have been able to give consciousness to machines. Can we know everything about a human by surgical invasion ??

  5. My argument with the hand experiment is that it is not the spontaneous reaction to the knife hitting the fake hand, but the mere possibility of you doing the same to the real hand. You do not want to take the chance. Just like a scenario where your friend acts like he is throwing something at you and the tendency of your mind is to dodge.

  6. We might have an answer if all the philosophers used as examples weren’t all European there are plenty of indigenous peoples, Asians, and Africans who have pondered such a perplexing question and I believe they’ve gotten pretty close

  7. We are both, and so much more than this, the question itself is wrong, question the question, who is asking this? We are everything, but your mind can not "understand " it, because there is nothing to understand. I AM that I AM

  8. Your sense of self when it comes to your body is an illusion. Your subconcious mind TELLS you that your body is you, and because he's the boss of your mind you are literally unable to not belive him.
    Your conscious mind is almost like a different person.

  9. You are mind with a body. Am mind which is from spirit. You are a spirit with a mind with a body. But without no distortion we can all say you simply are

  10. we have both mind and body as separate , but i think body dominates over the mind and the actions, only in sleep is our mind truly free ..

  11. We see a hand get stroked with a brush, ours gets stroked with a brush. We see the other hand get stabbed, so we think we're facing a similar fate.
    Exactly HOW is that your senses tricking you? That sounds like an oversimplification to prove a point more than an actual logical argument.

  12. Our body is a meat machine to keep our brain alive. Our brain holds the most important part, us. Something scientists still can't figure out yet, like gravity. We know a lot more about gravity, but still not why.

  13. The video raised the question but it didn't have enough material to draw a conclusion. Kinda disappointed.

  14. We are a soul. The brain is simply the "mouse and keyboard" to the body and the only organ in the body that can be used by the soul. The sensitive nature and extreme flexibility of the brain works perfectly to receive communication from the spirit world, thus making it the perfect means of control by the soul.

  15. Like!! I blog quite often and I genuinely thank you for your information. The article has truly peaked my interest.
