If it wasn't for our bodies then yes, we could live on pure energy.
We could take out your brain and hook it up to a super computer so it could "see" and "communicate" with the rest of the world. We could supply a
steady stream of electricity to the base of your brain, to simulate the flow of energy that currently travels up your spin to the base of your
In reality, the main reason that we even have a body is to keep the brain alive. The body moves around and somehow through hard work or a job and
money, we find food to eat and a safe shelter to lay down and rest. The brain is all that really matters. You could loose all kinds of limbs and
mobility and still be very much alive. Of course, when the brain goes, it's over, because nothing really exists expect what our brain perceives to
As for the energy thing, we stuff food into our body where our body breaks it down and feeds our organs nutrient. The organs do their thing and
create and pump blood through the body, and waist, out the body. The lungs give us oxygen that then mixes our blood. The whole heart-beating
blood-pumping machine called our body then produces a steady current of electricity that powers the brain and "is" the "life" that we know.
There is already technology in use where people's brains have been hooked up to computers that interact with our "thoughts" and perform actions. For
instance, computers interacting with human brains have allowed completely blind people (blind from birth) to be
able to see
. Also people without mobility can move the cursor and
navigate with their minds.
So, I believe that with the right technology and the use of robots for menial chores, we could get rid of our bodies altogether and just exist for
eternity in ever changing virtual paradise.
