Whats wrong with the word "psyche". That is a scientific word you do know that? Psychology is scientific observation of the psyche.<quoted text>
.. Trifecta, read Dr. Parnia's statement carefully:
"What we do know is the the "Self", consciousness, psyche or soul- which included the mind-does exist and is clearly linked with very specific regions in the brain that are wired and linked together through electrical impulses generated by the movement of certain chemicals in and out of cells"
.. eliminate the synonyms for consciousness (self, psyche, soul) and mainstream science completely agrees with him ..
.. HFY's claim that all consciousness is emergent (all brain) has not been proven. Dr. Parnia's position that consciousness includes a soul located in the brain is also incorrect. If there is a soul, it may be located in the pineal gland or tummy. For me, neither position is tenable ..
You don't believe or agree with Dr Parnia and his research. That is OK. You can choose to believe, or not believe, whatsoever you please :)
