Take the example of a television camera focused on Oprah. Studio lights shine on her, the camera is pointed at her, and some electrons leave the camera and go into equipment in the studio. From there they get jumbled around eventually some radio waves get involved, more electronics, a cable wire and into your television. The light from the television finds its way into your eyes, does stuff to the back of your eye, impulses fly through your optic nerve to your brain, and voila! You see Oprah.
Where is the image of Oprah? In your eyes? Do you see images in dreams when your eyes are closed? Is the image in your brain? On the television screen?
You’re walking down the street, minding your own business, and all of the sudden you fall into a large vat of super cooled nitrogen and every cell in your body freezes solid, instantly. No one notices you are missing for, oh, a couple of dozen years. Your frozen body is discovered and using technology of the day, you are instantly thawed. Do you continue with the same thought you were having when you fell in so many years ago?
Genesis 2:7 says “And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.” So creation says we are just a mess of physical stuff, with a soul thrown in the mix.
I am in the midst of applying for disability benefits and supplemental security income for Pearlsky. Some of it is automated on the web, some had to be done during a scheduled phone call, and now there is the “Function Report – Adult.” One of the instructions is, in bold and all caps, “DO NOT LEAVE ANSWERS BLANK.” They already know she is legally blind, I sent them the state’s certificate of blindness. They know all her medications, diagnosis, doctor’s names, etc., but it looks like I have another form to complete.
This one was tough. I was going to post it, then decided not to, but will. I have told you that Pearlsky has no communication at all, no apparent fine or gross motor skills (but she does get her fingers into her mouth), and more. She has a major effect on people, a personality, and a soul. But reading this report, you see none of that.
Where is her personality? Her soul? Here is her report.
