Jagad Guru Chris Butler quotes – Are You Just a Collection of Atoms and Molecules?

What is your essence? Is it matter—a mere collection of material atoms and molecules? Or is it something else?

The physical body is made up of countless numbers of tiny material particles called molecules and atoms. These material particles are constantly being replaced by material particles from the outside environment (in the form of food, water, air, and so on). Over a period of five to seven years, this process of metabolism brings about a complete change of the matter that makes up your body.

Those who claim that the self can continue to exist only if the body continues to exist must explain how come they and other selves exist despite the fact that their “baby,” “child,” and “adolescent” bodies no longer exist.

Jagad Guru Chris Butler – Science of Identity Foundation

==========

In the same way that the passing of the “childhood” body does not bring about the cessation of your (the self’s) existence, so the passing away of the “old” body will not bring about the cessation of your existence.
