Mysticism mumble jumbo,

Mysticism mumble jumbo, babbletalk.

It is a massive step to "assume" that consciousness consists of an energy that can be divorced from the body's functions. that belief is based on zero proof.

The prefrontal cortex in the human brain is massive, and this brain region has been implicated in planning complex cognitive behavior, personality expression, decision making, and moderating social behavior. We recognize that there was a yesterday, a present, and a future. We are self aware, and with our capacity to think, we realize the implications of being self aware and alive.

My definition of "consciousness" does not include the word "soul". Yours obviously drags in mysticism, magic, and religion because you have issues with your death. You are inventing crap just because you have not come to terms that once your body ceases functioning, all you are, is gone.
