Do you think it's possible to re-activate consciousness after death?

I haven’t really looked into this but if the cells that control/create consciousness are inside the brain and are activated by electric pulses, do you think it would be possible to re-activate consciousness (if the brain and cells controlling consciousness are still in tact) by putting the brain into a new body and giving the cells electric pulses?
I don’t know, it’s just a wild theory 🙂

  1. it could be possible in 20 yrs you never know the things they do these days a amazing so yeah I think maybe it might just happen scary thought tho

  2. Death is the permanent termination of the biological functions that define a living organism. It refers to both a particular event and to the condition that results thereby. The true nature of the latter has for millennia been a central concern of the world’s religious traditions and of philosophical enquiry. Religions, almost without exception, maintain faith in either some kind of afterlife or reincarnation. The effect of physical death on any possible mind or soul remains an open question. Contemporary science regards organismic death as final by definition.So I think it’s a no.

  3. depends on how long the person has been dead. more than a few minutes at room temp. without oxygen to the brain means the brain is permanently damaged.

  4. When a cell dies, it never revives. If some day it becomes possible to transplant a healthy brain into a healthy body that is somehow kept alive without its brain, there’s a miniscule chance that the brain would eventually re-form neural connections to that body. The one least likely to work is the optic nerve, which is really high bandwidth. The thoughts and operation of that brain could, in theory, be preserved. The mental aspects of that composite person would be those of the original owner of the brain. Meanwhile, all of the brain’s pain processing is open-loop, with no input. I doubt that would be tolerable.
    If you replace all of the parts of a car, is it the same car? And if you replace all those parts of your Ford with Chevy parts, is it a Ford or a Chevy?
