Couldn't be more wrong, my friend. The brain can even make decisions without your control. When you cut yourself, do you feel it? Of course you do,
and you feel it because the brain sends a message to the cut telling it to hurt as a means of alerting you to the damage. When you stub your toe,
that's the brain telling it to hurt. Everything that your body feels must come from the brain, else you wouldn't feel anything.
I think you misunderstood what I was saying... IF you break down the components of the brain it is nothing more then meat with electrical signals and
chemicals running though it... by themselves
these chemicals/electrical components/fleshy components can not do anything... and they also can
not do anything in any other combination except what happens within the body of a living creature.
Science can not explain how this combination works exactly... they only know that the brain is meat, chemicals, and electrical signals.
Lets try a different approach though... You seem to believe YOU are your body... Or at least YOU are your brain...
interesting that YOU made this statement though...
the brain sends a message to the cut telling it to hurt as a means of alerting YOU to the damage.
Anyways... IF you are your body.... Why is it that you have little to no control over it?
IT is all you.... correct?
Can you halt YOUR internal processes?
Can you stop your intestinal tract?
Perhaps stop your hair growth?
IF you are your body... Why can't YOU control it?
