I was recently reading some stuff about the brain and how it is our consciousness (which I disagree with), how without the brain we are no more. I see things a totally different way where the brain is actually a filter for infinite consciousness.
Anyhow, I was wondering what would happen if somebody could not see, hear, taste, smell or feel anything. Would their brain still work? Would they still be conscious?
It seems as though there wouldn't be any signals being sent to the brain so it would just sit there doing nothing. Perhaps it would be an inner Hell for the years that they do exist. They would obviously not be able to take care of themselves so they would just be a blob of biological matter. Could the body even function without its senses or would the internal organs just shut down?
I really don't know what to make of something like this but I do know that it boggles my mind.
