The first time I held a human brain in Anatomy Lab I was completely speechless. I looked at my classmates expecting a similar reaction and they looked back at me confused like…”dude let’s start identifying the structures.” I had to take a step back and let it process…in my hands was someone’s entire life. From start to finish, every memory, every emotion, every bodily control…was right there in my hands.
I disagree. This is just a non-functioning brain. Thoughts, feelings, etc. are processes that arise from a living, properly functioning brain. This one is dead and thus represents nothing more than a lump of human tissue. It’s like if you hold my amputated arm in your hands, and you exclaim that you hold my entire sex life.
