You are more than a physical body with a marvelous physical brain!
Some people believe that’s all there is—just a physical body—while many more believe, at the least, in something they call a “soul.” Some think of the soul as a kind of balloon-like attachment to the physical body, while others think of the body as a kind of “vehicle” for the soul.
Neither mainstream religion nor physical sciences offer any really satisfactory answers. Religion may speak of the soul as a “matter of faith,” but after the physical body dies some say the soul is judged and sent to heaven or hell, forever. Science says of the soul: if you can’t see it, weigh it, or measure it, then it doesn’t exist; that the body dies and decays, and that’s it!
