One of my favourite YouTubers just posted a gorgeous video illustrating the split-brain phenomena, one of the most powerful arguments against the existence of a soul. Once upon a time, severing the connection between the left brain and the right brain was used as a treatment for epilepsy, and resulted in patients suffering in a unique way. The separation of the two halves created what seems to be two separate consciousnesses, each completely detached and entirely different from the other.
The whole idea certainly makes believing in a soul that much more difficult, you know… unless you believe we each have two.
