There are some interesting cases about humans that all but assure that there are non-physical attributes in humans. This is the “brain” of a civil servant who had a low IQ but was still fully functional, conscious, and lived a normal life with a wife and family.
Consciousness is clearly not an entity that is intrinsic to certain structures of the brain.
Going by what the Scriptures discuss regarding the soul, I’d say it’s likely that our consciousness and sense of being are merely two aspects of what we would call our ‘eternal soul.’ Although they are housed in our physical body and need our physical bodies to operate, they are not limited by the physical structures of the body.
A very interesting reminder that there are things beyond materialism or the physical. One could even say meta-physical.
