    River seems to be living evidence that consciousness can exist without a brain.

    From original post

    So reality goes against what we think????

    Probably because non existent except as 'tall tales'

    But no mention of which other pathways

    In the first 3 replace "virtually" with small problem in the thread question

    Is the brain necessary for consciousness?

    vanishes

    At the same time show me a conscious person with no brain and again question answered

    It would also answer

    Consciousness will make use of the brain, or even won’t use a brain in case of its virtual absence, but will then express itself through other pathways

    I await

    True, some seem determined not to.

    Speaking of which, you never answered the question. Did you learn what DHMO is, that evil stuff that you've demanded to be removed from vaccines? Do you now understand it better?

    Consciousness is probably just biological electricity and biochemistry.

    I think that neuropeptides probably have some role in consciousness.

    Without biological electricity and biochemistry there is no life.

    I think that consciousness is probably just electricity and probably along with neuropeptide chemistry as well.

    There also some theories about electromagnetism playing a role in consciousness in case if someone is interested:
