The brain is physical, it is objective, it is us. When the brain dies, we die.
The brain is the point of RECEPTION on the physical plane for the mental body. The mental body has the thoughts regardless of whether we are in physicality or not. Injure the brain and you remove the reception of consciousness on the physical plane. The consciousness is still there, it is always there, but not received in the physical.
