How does the idea of a unified soul make any sense in the face of this data?

Easy - the soul does not identify exclusively with the body

Indeed this David Weisman displays all the usual arrogance of medical science. In this case he manages a talk down tone in which he displays his own ignorance on how the brain functions, that is he talks old ideas, meanwhile surpassed but i guess keeping up with the latest is a bit much to ask of doctors who are too busy making money and going to pharmaceutical congresses. In short the man is a run of the mill selfabsorbed quak, i wonder why Jameske offers us his tripe.

Dick Cheney scares me more than the New World Order, but i think the real conspiracy lies with McDonald's and other fast food chains and the fattening of the world's population. it's a good way to off a few million stupid people who consider a quarter pounder something they should eat every day. this is the epidemic people: stupidity!!!

...I forgot how I got here but everyone seems to be heading off in that direction. I hope someone brought food. I have a feeling this is going to be a long journey................

One of the most sophisticated malware ever is what many are calling Stuxnet. Computer security experts around the world are amazed by it. They believe that Stuxnet developers created the worm as a search and destroy weapon for sabotage.

Here is the proof: Experts Stuxnet is a military - grade cyber weapon aimed at Iran. Only a nation-state would have enough time, money and talent to ever create something as complex since the Stuxnet rather than rogue hackers, states cybersecurity experts. Stuxnet looks for specific software programs, for instance factories, power plants and water systems, through thumb drives and printer spoolers instead of spreading on the Internet. The Stuxnet is expected to be targeting the Bushehr nuclear power plant. This is because it has been showing up in Iran one of the most often.
