Brain, Cells, Mind, and Soul
We have each 60 trillion cells in our body.
But a cell dies in a few days or several days or so. (However, brain cells never die all through our lives.) If on average a cell dies in six days, 10 trillion cells are dying everyday in our body. In a week, we are totally different persons with totally different cells composing our bodies.
(Of course, the same amount of new cells are being created in six days to keep integrity of your individual bodies.)
But, continuation of self-consciousness is assured. We are still the same persons after six days. Our mind is a phenomenon supported by our body consisting of 60 trillion cells or specifically by our brain consisting of 150 billion cells.
But our mind also supports our spirit that comes down from Heaven or the spiritual space. Our spirit is neither a phenomenon that works in brain cells nor electric signals generated in brain cells. It is something coming down from the outer world into our mind on the brain cells.
There must be a kind of electric-magnetic waves flying around between the outer world and our brains. Our minds receive the spirit to be subject to it. God is spirit and man is also spirit, though in a lower grade.
Now you may die physically. Your brains losing oxygen and nutrition would also stop functioning. A phenomenon in your brain called the mind also disappears. But your soul can be lifted up to Heaven with spirit having come into your mind from Heaven. And your soul has to stand before God.
Anyway we have to turn off a television and read the Bible, since God might terminate this world for you at any time as if you switched off a TV.
This morning after big rainfalls yesterday and the day before I found a morning glory blooming. The spirit of the flower should belong to a different spiritual world than man's. But it must be first observed by a man. Then, he may keep the figure and impression in his mind to carry it or take it into a picture to enjoy it later. A human being is more precious than a morning glory to the eye of God. He must preserve our souls surely somewhere.

Luk 9:12 And when the day began to wear away, then came the twelve, and said unto him, Send the multitude away, that they may go into the towns and country round about, and lodge, and get victuals: for we are here in a desert place.
Luk 9:13 But he said unto them, Give ye them to eat. And they said, We have no more but five loaves and two fishes; except we should go and buy meat for all this people.
