    AH, okay. I thought the blood itself caused the event to happen. Thanks for clearing that up for meh!

    Okay, but! The brain is the vessel in which the mind is held. If the brain is destroyed, your mind would be gone.

    Unless you're hinting that the soul is actually the mind. Which I've heard of before.

    I think you're wrong that shock had to be caused by the blood I see no other reason.

    I don't believe in souls...

    ...now Thetans on the other hand. <____<

    Nah I joke. Honestly, I agree that it's connection between mind and body. That's what makes the most sense. I always fell into the category of people that figured that your soul would represent your self image, so if it could be seen, it would be seen as how you see your self.
    Dear cousin choppitychop89, you were a good relative, though I hardly knew ye.

    What I'm saying, though, is that because Al has his soul in the real world, it binds him to his body and mind which are on the other side of the gate. His body holds his brain, which holds his mind, which holds his memories...

    Mind, soul and body... Let me divide the answer into two parts.

    1) The Real World (where i am now): to my mind soul is just the part of a brain, subcortex, i guess. In some institute (don't remember where) they made an expiriment: 10 men were gathered and scientists made them work for a week (only hard work for muscles) without changing the clothes. Can you imagine the kind of smell that was coming from that clothes? After that they made 10 women smell that clothes. And they found out that every woman has at least one thing that smells attractive to her. That was taken as a proof that the coice of a love (read "sexual") partner depends on smell. Love is souls thing right? You can belive in it or not but such experiment took place.

    2) The FMA World (where they are now): soul is a unmatherial thing that connects body and mind. Looks like it is in charge of memmories as well.

    the soul is not in charge of memories, it is linked to the mind which has the memories........the armor al's experiences cannot be stored in his armor body, yet he has a memory and he is able to learn......which is why ed said that al's real body is still living somewhere and al's soul is linking him to his mind....................that is how he has a memory..........ed explains this in chapter #44

    (I'm blaming this repetative banter on the Thetans)

    Then I'll rephrase Tayuya for him(er... her?) (for the 3rd time.)

    Al's mind, body and soul were taken by the gate as equivalent exchange. However, Ed exchanged his arm for Al's soul. This means that the mind and the body of Al are in the gate. When Al's soul experiences anything, the memories he gains, etc. gets stored in his mind, which is in the gate with his body. Hence, the soul links the mind and body.

    Is this all for my sake!? Oh, thank you! (tears of happiness)
    Remember what Ranma always screamed: "I'm a guy!" That don't change anything in this case though.

    P.S. Oh, i almost forgot (2 more times): Thank you, Thank you!
