If you want to look at the brain as the computer that runs the body then you could look at the soul as the programing the runs the computer. Your brain is the biological 'wiring' and the chemical impulses are the 'electrical currents' then the soul is the 'code that responses to the input, calculates the reactions needed and sends back the needed answers and reactions.The brain is a biological computer that houses eletrical synapsis that retain electrical charges. This "electrical" charge is unique to each individual. I concider this to be the physical embodiment of the soul.
As for transplanting the brain, It would be like taking your hard drive from one computer and putting it in another computer that has different wiring and schematics. The programs and 'memory' would be the same but reacting to the new types of input would ultimately change the way the programing worked.
Surgery on the brain is much the same as having your computer hard-drive repaired (the brain) you often times lose the stored information (the memory) to repair the problem and that changes the reactions of the computer to the programing (the soul) I mean how often have you heard someone complain that they had to get their computer fixed and that now it doesn't act the "same"?

I like how everyone is letting loose and saying what they believe, let's keep having fun with this tread.
Which is the real me? Soul or brain, huh. Well, it's really hard for me to say since I have no clue whether my brain is attached to my soul. When I expire, I know my brain will rot in the ground like the rest of my body. Although my spirit, it's still a bit sketchy for me to believe one way or the other. After my soul departs from my body, who is to say it will find another host to reside in? Will I still be me when I go into another body? Is my spirit even real or maybe it's just game over for me when I die? I was raised Catholic so there's strong belief in my family that the soul continues to live on even after my body no longer remains. Although I have no way of knowing whether that's true, I guess it's more of a positive way at looking at death. Maybe there will be an afterlife and maybe there won't be. Even if my soul wander for all eternity or finds another vessel, I still not certain whether to say if it's still going to be me. So unfortunately, I am undecided about whether my soul or brain is the true me. But if I were to choose, hopefully I would think that my soul is the real me since it's probably less vulnerable to being damaged compared to my brain.
well i got my own theory... what i think is that the brain is actualy the soul's phisical container... for example... if you get shot and bleed to death... you're brain will run out of oxigen and well...... you know what happenes next..you're soul leaves your body and stuff.
and theres more... if your brain.. by any chance, gots another body.... i think you whould become EMO.. lol sry for the expression.. don't know how to explain it better... never been a person of many words.... EMO as in.. you start asking you'r self questions like.."an i really the same person" and such...
so basicaly i think
Brain = Souls container
Braindead(as in medical therms) = soul leaves body
i have seen cases in witch people had like almost half of they're brains removed and well lived on... they had memmory losses for a time but they eventualy came back.. witch leads me to beleave that part of the persons soul left and ,well, came back when the container regained it's full function again..
Thx allot AO 4 makeing me resize this....i'm being sarcastic......

Well the way I see it is like this. Your Brain is your Physical Imprint on reality where as your soul is the Immaterial Imprint on reality. Both are needed to maintain each other.
A body with just a brain is little more than a robot, able to do things, but with no real passion or form of creativity (Much like shop assistants).
A soul that isn't connected to a Brain however, is like energy for want of a better expression. It has the potential for feelings, but without a Brain to convey and process situations, it cannot absorb, express or understand differances in emotional states.

Even thou that body is a shell, when you try to attach your body to another body there are many cases where your body won't state attached.
The body can still live on even when brain dead, the heart continues to beat. I believe that once the brain dies, the soul goes with it. Thats why when you faint you wake up with a huge headache.
But it's just a opinion. I don't think you should go transfering peoples lives into anothers mind. It'd be trouble.
no, in my beilefs your soul is most important even though you forget this life when you travel on. The soul takes all the instintics, feeling, and emotions when you connect to another body.
The body is just the shell that protects it. Even though you can survive basically as a vegetable because your brian is alive, its just on vacation or broken. It depends on the situation. While when you die your soul just goes to where it needs to be
