I like to think there is much more to us, but it seems that if you turn off the brain all human functions cease. Like walking. Once a pathway is closed, by coma for example, we have unlearnt what once travelled that pathway and must develop a new route in the brain, learn again what we once knew.

We are not just routers of information but also add meaning to it, thought. Have you ever looked up theories on the development of our most fundamental ability, eyesight? In early humans millions of years ago eyes were a very basic organ that perceived light, then shapes, and ultimately our inventions, all objects. Oh brain, please let me walk normally again.
