and no, I'm not trying to start a thread hi-jack. but how many of us believe in a sense of soul, or "id"?
is everything that makes up the way you think, your emotions just a chemical reaction?
if it's just a chemical reaction, then are we really on the path to "immortality" through some of our bio-engineering efforts, or even brain transplants into donor/clone bodies?
I understand chemicals have a huge role in my emotions, but I have a tougher time accepting that they are the sole reason I'm feeling something, than I do of accepting that each of us has a soul.
