The Brain and the Mind

To well understand the difference between brain and mind I have this simple experiment.

Imagine is possible to construct an object that work exactly as a neuron . Now replace the neuron with this object in a person . After this operation is theĀ  person the same? Remember the object work exatly as the neuron replaced.

Ok, if you answer yes we can proceed .

Now do the same with another neuron , replacing it with another object working exaclty like the neuron . Is the person the same ?

It is clear proceeding in this way we can replace all the neuron in the Brain …

But I suggest a different experiment now . Instead of replacing the 2 neurons with 2 objects now we replace the 2 neurons with 1 object that work exactly as the 2 neurons . Is the person the same ?

If you answer yes to the first question the answer will be yes also in this case .

The brain is only a container…
