re: Elijah Rosa-Laurich Not the soul dissolves upon death but the brain dissolves upon death. It should read: "though the brain is essential in terms of bodily functions, it dissolves upon death like the rest of the body." The parantetical phrase "and for the soul to migrate in this world" is not part of what dissolves upon death.

The soul is eternal. Part of the world of emanation, not created.

Shalom. Reply

RE. Your 'Pete WA' teachinig-preaching the SOUL dissolves upon DEATH like the rest of the body Where in Torah do you get that given you herein in subject line from? Reply

Amazing brain Thanks for this speech. I have been currently reading about the motor cortex (cingulate motor area- CMA) is very related. The cerebellum is also activated while control movements, for balance and equilibrium. Rosh Hashanah is also related to balance and to control movements for the coming success year. Shaná Tová.

Actually the primary motor cortex does not control all voluntary movement.
The brain is not the first part to develop. It develops along with the whole nervous system. Reply

The heart God's home is in the heart. It is this seat of love that controls every moral choice we ever make. And though the brain is essential in terms of bodily functions, and for the soul to migrate in this world, it dissolves upon death like the rest of the body.

The heart is the intelligence of the soul, and the house of God. Reply
