Early in my Air Force career I was part of a group that was detailed to clean about 180 M-16s.

This involved stripping the weapon, cleaning each part, reassembly and function check. We had enough people and stations to break it up into very specific tasks for each part. The foregrip and stock were not disassembled.

The rifles assembled by the first guy kept failing the function check, so I was selected.

I was responsible for the entire final assembly, both bolt and receivers. There were always parts waiting, so I was kept very busy.

After we were done, we took a break. As we were standing around, one of the guys asked, almost to himself "How many parts are inside?"

I hadn't counted as I worked, but I blurted "Six!" without thinking.

Not counting the plunger and spring, the bolt assembly and charging handle add up to six parts.

I worked at the same machine making the part of a car wheel where the lug nuts attach. One day in 1978, I was starled when the realization hit me that I had been doing this exact same job for over 5 years. The reason I was originally put on this machine was that I was the only guy who could run it without breaking the punches.

Not to try to take this in a Raaaid-esque direction but this just further confirms my theories on the nature of consciousness and the soul. I believe that the consciousness is not in the body itself, and that the brain and other organs are merely a tool, a transceiver if you will. This will explain what appears to be higher functions under some circumstances even if the brain is damaged. This also explains certain aspects of awareness that is not based on input from the brain and the senses (i.e. sixth sense, intuition, etc.). More and more research is beginning to show that the brain may indeed work on the quantum level and this may be the mechanism the consciousness uses to communicate from wherever it resides to where the brain and the body reside.

Nah, this only shows that brain is complex and has replicated systems and backup features to avoid failure, just like an A-10.

No soul exists without a sentient brain.

Learned unconscient automated reactions to repeated external stimula just relates us to non-sentient beings like roaches and flies.

Unless you think roaches have a 'soul'.

Well maybe they do! Just little itty bitty ones that are like wisps!

I wish I could turn my inner zoombie on at will and go back to bed some time. He seems to do things much better then I do. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
