Sure! I'll try.Waverider: Can anyone prove that consciousness is not the function/feature of the brain?
Lets assume that consciousness is a function of the brain. Although science struggles to explain consciousness (e.g., you can google the 'Hard Problem of Consciousness').
But what is the brain? atoms? molecules? sub-atomic nano particles? quantum particles? What does the body and brain resolve to ultimately? We've reached quantum particles---but more are being discovered. Higgs Boson? Ultimately, we can only say that the body/brain resolves to the fundamental 'existence'. And if you understand that existence and consciousness are not separate (see my post above), then you have to say that the brain resolves to consciousness.
That is, 'you' resolve to the fundamental existence/consciousness. So you can adopt your identity as the body/mind or the pure existence/consciousness you resolve to. It's just a paradigm shift for your primary identity that takes place in your intellect.
Hope this makes sense. I'm trying to condense all of Vedanta into a paragraph so it might appear cryptic to say the least .
