I heard JP Moreland address this issue recently. He described us as a soul attached to a brain, with inherent limitations as long as we are connected that way. He gave an analogy of a driver strapped and locked to a car seat, being limited in many ways by the function of the car/engine. Say the fuel injectors were clogged. It would affect our ability to move.----------I would bet a skilled experimenter could tease out things that the driver could do that would be unaffected by damaging the car. Yelling words, for example. No matter what you did to the car the driver could still yell words, demonstrating a capability that the driver alone possesses. (Apparently even I, a very poor experimenter, can come up with one. :) )You're not taking the analogy far enough. Your voice is connected to the car's radio. You are integrated into it such that while connected to it, you can't move or communicate except through it. But when it completely breaks down, you can be released from it.Of course if the car goes over a cliff and burst into flames, you're screwed :)
