Where are you.

No I don't mean your location, what I mean is exactly where are you ? to enlarge further if you lose one or more limbs or have some organ removed you are still you so we can say with some certainty that you reside in your brain, taking this further we know which part of the brain does what and we know this from injuries to peoples brains combined with scans which pin point the exact part where injury has occurred.
It has now been claimed that a small area of the human brain has been identified that has not been found in any animals considered closest to man despite genetic code having much in common with us.

Re: Where are you.

There is a link in that article to a video of a freshly removed human brain and watching it is strange considering all that that person was is contained in that brain.......strange feeling.
