Introducing the brain (Introduction)

DAVID: Why can't you accept the soul functions differently in life and death in its thought mechanisms? […]

dhw: I have accepted it over and over again, and have asked you over and over again what different “thought mechanisms” you are referring to, other than those of observation and communication. Why don’t you answer?

I've answered over and over. What are you missing? The soul has a brain-use mode of thought in life and can think on its own in death because it has that ability to change its functional self. In death it rejoins the universal consciousness from whence it came.

DAVID: I'm simply saying the soul is malleable in its ability to think.

dhw: Of course it’s malleable. If it wasn’t, there would be no development in our personality from the moment we were born! And you still haven’t answered my question.

DAVID: It uses brain networks in life, so we are then realistically connected to our immaterial soul and in death the immaterial soul can think without the brain as shown by the NDE evidence.

dhw: I keep trying to pin down your “uses”. Yes, the thinking soul uses the brain to gather the information it thinks about and to express/implement its thoughts materially. You keep agreeing and then trying to gloss over the implications. And yes, NDEs show that the same soul can think without the brain, so why do you keep insisting that in life it depends on the brain to THINK?

Because it is interlocked with the brain in life and we know where thought takes place and where and how we reach ourselves. I can only work with my soul/ consciousness by using my brain.

DAVID: It must have the ability to use two forms of action. You demand a rigid fixed mechanism for the soul. For you it can only work one way! How do you know that?

dhw: I demand no such thing. Yet again, I keep agreeing that it has to have two different ways of observing and communicating (= two different forms of action), and I keep asking you what other “forms of action” or “thought mechanisms” you are referring to, and you keeping dodging the question. So once more, please tell us what different forms of action you are referring to, if not observation and communication.

Thought! The soul must think in life and also in death. It has two mechanisms of doing so because it is changeable, using the brain in life and rejoining the universal consciousness in death.
