    you is what you call you. so what is you?

  2. Positive Anion

    I like that idea. I am more of a constantly changing pattern than any solid object. the human body is completely dynamic, and you can only really look at it as so. so, our identities are dynamic, as well.

    Nothing is static, any ways. We don’t care about characters as static ideas, but as ideas that change. It is the change that characters go through that we care about.

    Everything comes down to soul(consciousness) which nobody has been able to figure out yet. You can say that we are programmed and that we don’t have free will. Your soul knows the difference between your brain and everything else that is not your brain. And it never makes a mistake in that regard. That means your soul has structure and rules, like a machine.

    Can’t you be like software?
    Consciousness might be better understood as an operating system or a program.
    It doesn’t exist physically, it’s just data installed in the computer.
    And some of the same logic can be applied here.
    Computer parts can work on their own, but software can’t exist without a computer.
    It exists as a concept, as a conglomerate of inner workings and electrical powered functions, but we can call it a thing.

    Obviously I’m simplifying too much… But when I ask myself what am I? I usually answer with “a survival program installed in the brain, with different functions and tools, sensors and information.” I’m too tired to think of a better way of putting this idea, but… It makes sense to me.

    Thats really an interesting question. As far as I understand. We are not our cells. we may be in all in our cells. When a cell die we do not. This has to do something with conciousness. We are our conciousness that may reside in our brain and other cells. But is does not die when brain dies. How people recalls their past lives even when all of their cells die.

    You as you is just a label our brains give you in order to identify you as something. The reason it has to identify you as something is because that’s how it works the most efficiently, hence langauges.. so it’s a social construct and not something that actually exist in universe. How much of you makes you depends on our consensus, which don’t exist yet. General rule with labeling is that as long as you are a fairly similar thing from moment to moment, you remain you. You would stop being you if you underwent so drastic and rapid transformation you’d be unrecognizable and therefore unpredictable. How fast transformation has to be is, again, down to consesus.

  172. Arth Shukla

    I see identity as more of a psychological matter. In my eyes, my body doesn’t make me, my body holds me. Say, for example, we figured out how to transfer my consciousness onto a computer, but I would no longer in my body. In that case, I’m not dead, as I’m in the computer. The body holding me, however, is dead. It’s sort of the way people think of cells, but rather than being another form of matter or some supernatural object that we cannot comprehend, but, rather, it is the set of reactions that generate my thoughts. which creates my consciousness. (All of this, by the way, is assuming a consciousness can be made through reactions, and souls do not exist.) So, even if all of organs are switched with all of another person’s organs, I am still in the body where my consciousness resides.

  173. sense

    while listening to this i thought of this you were talking about a pattern well guess what is prob bc all ure cells have mutated so much that they are not you anymore they are diff so basicly the pattern is diff so you the pattern can not exist is this what you are trying to say jk know ure not so yeah thought of this while watching great vid btw

  174. lolzomgz1337

    Isn’t “You” sort of the precise way in which your neurons are connected? So, it doesn’t matter whether you swap cells with someone else, the question is, what configuration is each brain in after the swap?

  184. Annu Ranjan

    Hindus believe that you are your SOUL and you keep on changing bodies after each cycle of birth and death. So, after all, Kurgesagth seems to suggest we and nothing but the consciousness which Hinduism advocates.

    1. Hm Grraarrpffrzz

      It’s nice that it reminded it on something you value. Still, it seems to me that you interpret the video too much, trying to read it into something you want to find there, even if that’s not the case.

      With “we” I referred to mankind in general. I might be wrong, but in my entire life I’ve heard of no single rational reason supporting the supposed existence of a soul. The concept of a soul seems to me to be the result of wishful thinking, of wanting to be immortal, of not accepting that, when we die, we cease to exist.

      I think that “we” in as our consciousness and conception of self are merely the result of a complex brain, and that anything with a similarly complex neural network can reach this state.

      “We can’t rule out the possibility” can be said about basically anything. From the existence of a soul to that of a Yeti to the core of the Moon being populated by intelligent jellyfish. The question is not what we can or can not rule out, but rather what the information we have suggests to be objectively true.

      Well, yes, we can cheat death. It’s just a matter of technology, the definition of death and the cause of death whether it’s possible to revive a person or not. And yes, if we keep the body working and in good condition then we are in that case immortal. There are animals on this planet that never die of age.

    2. Annu Ranjan

      Thank you for assuming that I am a religious person though I count me as an agnostic-atheist person. Did I bring in a religion in the comment section – YES, I did. More than a religious concept, I would say this is a spiritual concept.

      “According to all “we know,” souls do not exist.” – What do you mean by “we” here? The all of the humanity, or the people of the country/faith you belong to? If the soul does not exist, what are “we” then? An aggregate mass of individually “alive” cells? We are nothing more than our bodies? Well, I tend to disagree that souls do not exist. We just can’t rule out this possibility. If the soul doesn’t exist then it is possible to cheat death by keeping our bodies on life support system. But as it has been observed “every single time” that once the “soul” leaves our body, it is not possible to bring a person back from death even putting the body to the life support system, pumping the heart etc. What has changed – the cells are still there and alive – even the brain at the time of death. IF WE ARE JUST BODIES, THEN, KEEPING THE BODY IN CONDITION AND WORKING can lead to immortality. This is the video just about that. Isn’t it?

      What you know is what has been taught to you by your surroundings, and not necessarily the truth. If you believe in flat Earth, that doesn’t mean the Earth will change its shape according to your wish. The content of the video just reminded me of the teaching of the Hinduism, which I commented it here. Whether you accept it or not, doesn’t matter much to anyone!

    3. Hm Grraarrpffrzz

      Why do religious people always attempt to twist other peoples words to match their own believes… Kurzgesagt is a channel explaining (mostly) scientific concepts. According to all we know, souls do not exist. They neither supported your nor any other religion, but, quite the opposite, mentioned most often that there are no deities.

    If you exchange your cells with another person one by one, maybe you become both persons at some point, and gradually you become ‘more you’ when approaching the end of the cycle?

    We are an organized cluster of living beings they are not, they are clusters of abiotic mechanisms and we are not, but what makes them look alike is consciousness (if they have artificial intelligence).

    Hey so are Cells living beings or not? Because in the video about “What is life” you said thy’re not, here you say thery are

  213. Iron Overheat

    Saying the mind doesn’t exist, and that we’re all just meaningless pieces of flesh is as unscientific as claiming life begins by spontaneous generation. The simple fact we can ponder if we’re nothing but mere specks of randomly generated cell combinations proves we’re much, much more than that. Inanimate combinations of cells don’t create societies, emotional bonds, philosophies, personalities, achievements, humanity. We’re beyond matter. Call it mind, spirit, soul, whatever you want: but we’re not simple organized cells, and you’d be lying to yourself if you believed that.

If only our brain and body didn’t need oxygen… Otherwise i theorically couldn’t live without my brain, the source of my contiousness, actions and else. My heart though just is, there’s no life, conciousness, or will.

    Transhumanism is: taking away all that makes you human and trading it for the body of an inanimate object. an inanimate object like your toaster car radio or lamp..So maybe the inanimate object allows you to live longer or maybe your computerized brain catches a computer virus and you live forever stuck in the inanimate object waiting for the day a future robot finds you and administers an antivirus then makes you his pet and puts you in a cage behind glass.

    everything is made up of smaller, tiny things…and those things are made of smaller, tiny things…what if…what if the destiny of humanity is to become, essentially, cells for the next stage of life?
    think about it. first there werer single celled organisms. then over millenia they evolved and multiplied in to us. now we are our own, singular organisms. once cells were all that was, but now we are . so what if, like cells, we’re going to…combine, somehow? maybe not in a literal sense. it’ll probably be us creating AI that that vastly outclass us in every single way. circuits and code are just manmade organs and DNA really. hell I wouldn’t be surprised if all living things were just incredibly advanced machinery created by some unbelievably ascended race that we’re too small minded to comprehend, so we call it nature.
    what if cancer cells are cells that have somehow gained self awareness, a conciousness? i mean, think about it. all we are is a group of cells that doesnt want to die. thats just what a cancerous tumor is.

      that just compounds the problem of life, then. What is god? What is a soul? Where is the soul? What made god? Does god have a soul?

  413. Elijah Morrison

    I have a realy good idea for one of your videos what if every ten seconds you died but a different soul or whatever took over with the exact same memory and body and everything

  414. Yaro Ki Vines

    I know who am I, I am the Memory and this body ( including brain ) is a tool for me. The Memory cells never regenerate. if I remove your memory cells. So there is no-one to whom you called ‘I’. Think about it

  415. M7 Eduardo

    we are mega exo skeletons with autonomy, with the sole purpouse of copying our DNA
    our DNA is our god, our creator; and we exist to preserve him/them/whatever

  416. NBS

    I just died inside …. literally

  417. Rushika Prasad

    I think that a persons self consists of only your memories, character, and self consciousness. If someone were to take only your brain/personality and put it in a completely different body, then that body and brain is now you or your self. The old body is no longer you. The moment that the brain connected to your personality/memories can no longer transmit information any organ you may be donating is when that organ is no longer you.

    If your conscience controls soemthign it becomes YOU because it works with and for YOU, You as in your expiernce of life, and your reactiosn toward it, if you lose a conscience and are no longer aware of anything, then that partof you is gone, and your conscience ‘existence’ is gone, and all that remains is the PHYSICAL You, if you replace all of that with robot stuff, then it doesnt matter where your parts are, a PART OF YOU, joins with something else, and the rest of you is just you, we live on earth, but we arent 100 percent part of it, and just because we are a part of it doesnt mean we are earth, we arent earth because there are other parts that make up it, we are just a PART, PARTS make up you, together or not, separated or apart, you can be anywhere with anything, you are still you, you dont change, PHYSICALLY SPEAKING. If you modify consciencness, YOU are still there, the only difference is youve been MODIFIED, a part ADDED to you. Therefore, that means DNA is NOT you then, if you add something to your dna, it becomes a PART of you, but it isnt from you, it works with you, and therefore being A part of you, or “you”, because there is no you, you are just parts, and those parts can be mixed around, YOU ARE PARTS, YOU ARENT A SINGLE THING, seaparated or not, the PHYSICAL you is there, the conscience you CAN END once you end, simple as that, because conscienceness is not tangable, and there arent parts to it, because nonphysical things dont use PHYSICAL parts.

  436. Aidan Taylor

  437. Existential Dread

    *deep inhale* MITOCHONDRIA IS *NOT* THE POWERHOUSE OF THE CELL D;. It converts energy. The first law of thermodynamics states that energy can be transformed and transferred, but not created or destroyed. “Powerhouse” implies that the mitochondria is creating energy, but it is just converting energy to something the cell can use.

    the donated organ becomes part of the other, despite it being your cells. Also, th other person have becomed you when above 60% is changed

  452. GD C491TRK

    Today’s the day were gonna learn about the cell
    If I teach it okay, you’ll know it very well
    So listen up 6th graders-
    -no room left for haters-
    lets talk about the building blocks of life- cells that make us.

    Cells, cells they’re made of organelles
    Try to pull a fast one, the cytoplasm gels
    The nucleus takes over controllin’ everything
    The party don’t stop ’till the membrane blocks the scene
    Inside the vacuole we can float around for hours
    Running round with chloroplasts, lovin’ sunlight showers
    Cells, cells, they’re made of organelles

    First things first, there’s two different types-
    animal and plant cells that make up all life.
    The little things that make up microscopic cells,
    The main structures- yeah, we call them organelles.
    Now let’s break it down and get some information-
    How do cells work? It’s a crazy combination!

    Cells, cells they’re made of organelles
    Try to pull a fast one, the cytoplasm gels
    The nucleus takes over controllin’ everything
    The party don’t stop ’till the membrane blocks the scene
    Inside the vacuole we can float around for hours
    Running round with chloroplasts, lovin’ sunlight showers
    Cells, cells, they’re made of organelle

    The cell membrane is the border patrol,
    Who can cross over? The membrane lets ’em know
    The gooey stuff inside, is called the cytoplasm
    It holds the organelles- don’t …. i forgot the rest

  499. Mathew Farry

    All this becomes clear when do LSD (hear me out) my friends have had the same experience. It does something to your brain that causes you to lose your sense of self, the ‘you’ that controls what you think and do. It’s called ego disillusion and when it happens the line that seperates you and rest of world disappears, and you realise that the universe is one thing, that you are it and it is you just like you are your cells and your cells are you… Anyway it’s the most fucked up feeling ever and really difficult to explain.

    1. Anuj Chitale

      Mathew Farry There are 2 kinds of ppl in this world-

      We don’t what part of the brain it comes from

    2. Uncle Boobs

      Estrelinha Hang in there. You are very brave. It’ll be all fine one day and yes defining ourselves is a very difficult thing. Consciousness which is nothing but our perception towards the world plus our thoughts and emotions which keeps changing all the time so consciousness is definitely not you. So yes I agree with you.

    3. Harsh Patel

      Estrelinha I guess you are right! This is deeper than what I thought.

    4. Estrelinha

      Harsh Patel And what is your consciousness? There are thousands of diseases that change your humor, the way you feel and think. Some of them you could have for the rest of your life. And don’t even need to be a disease, take hormones for example. Woman in their period can change humor, pregnancy too.

      This is actually something that I discuss a lot with myself. I have clinical depression since I was a little kid, but only get treatment last year. I spend more than 12 years of my development phase struggling with a disease. So what is “me”? What choices I made because I want and not the disease? How much of what I believe I was is actually me? I have suicidal thoughts too, even attempt one. My development is in part because of depression, its a part of me now.

      So how can you tell your consciousness is you?

What if our only purpose is to let our cells continue living, while they give us the illusion to be in controll, when we realy arent? But how do we know if we are in controll or not? What defines us as us? How can we be sure of anything right now????

    1. Shaugn Dangle

      Suicide is usually brought on by an imbalance of chemicals in the brain and also many environmental factors influence the likelihood of someone having suicidal tendencies as well. Why wouldn’t we be suicidal though? We’re very aware of how terrible this place is. How difficult life can get. How pointless it all seems sometimes. How pain and misery can seem to persist while happiness and pleasure become fleeting. Just because we’re made of a bunch of cells doesn’t mean we can’t be suicidal. Our big brains (made out of billions of neurons (brain cells (communicative nano-bots))) are the reason some become suicidal. We’re too aware and increasingly sensitive for our own good, thanks to the internet of course. You could blame a few more societal issues on evils such as “every government ever” and umm..actually they really are the only problem we all face other than natural disaster. Suicide will get exponentially worse as society continues to fester due to the systematic oppression of the human race by the League of Puppet Masters via a plethora of manipulative and malicious schemes. You can’t beat them. You can only join them, or simply suffer. The world was won only a century ago, and those who grasp it have never been so powerful and insidious as they are today. Quite a sad reality really. “When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace.” – Jimi Hendrix

      Animals are driven. We’re more than animals, we have higher intellectual capabilities.

  544. Help me reach 10,000 subs without any videos

    So when I say I’m dying inside it’s true.

  545. Aarow Thomas

    This is true, I guess, the fact that basic ideals such as “you” “alive” or “dead” are so fluent, which proposes that everything can be interpreted, nothing is static, that everything that we experience every day is just an illusionary construct of our own brains. So, the only way you can be “wrong” about anything is in the context of a illusionary structure created by someone else, so no one can be considered wrong about anything, in this new context, can insanity be measured? I think not. Every insane person views themselves as sane, and the world as insane. So every person on this earth is sane, to themselves, or insane to others. If this is true, then society itself was just created to satisfy the illusionary construct of someone else, their experiences, long ago. So that is why society is fluid, no one is incorrect. I guess, this is far too deep for the YouTube comments section.

  567. AuraIsMyLife

    I have a simple answer to this question. You can trade as much as you want because ‘you’ is really just your brain.
    But if you see it that way, then the rest of your body is just a slave to your brain, so if you change your brain and use it in another body, you’re still just in another body.
    So you’re still you.

  576. thewiseturtle

    Cells do have consciousness! If we define consciousness as being aware of one’s environment and/or one’s self in some way, then cells definitely can sense their own states and environment and act on that information. Combine multiple cells together, and the level of consciousness goes up.

    Also, entropy is what MAKES life. Fighting entropy would mean going backwards in time, to when the universe is simple and non-living.

    Henrietta Lacks, the first human to produce immortal cells, cancer or otherwise. Sadly they were removed from her without her concent (which may has hastened her death) and used for over half a century since to fight cancer, polio, tumors etc. Her family has never been compensated for this unwilling contribution to science. Ironically the doctor who performed the biopsy contracted cancer himself, and before he could even be treated it spread to is lymphatic system leaving him terminal. R.I.P. Ms. Lacks ? or maybe just good on ya.

    Hold on, so death by age is caused by the slow deterioration in your cells’ quality with each new batch of cells, and a cancer cell is an immortal cell provided it keeps getting nutrients. So with this logic, provided you don’t get a disease, wouldn’t a human made entirely of cancer cells be immortal?

    1. Fandom guy

      I suppose, thought without programmed cell death, we would grow as the cells no longer replace each other, but still keep reproducing.

  655. Jave Lester Odvina

    Who are you?
    Does your brain controlling you? Or
    Does you controlling your brain? Which one?

    We can’t control our heart beat, metabolism, cell kinesis, etc.. why can’t we control every thing in our body commanding all the cells in it?

    1. Fandom guy

      It’s a bit of both interestingly, you controlling conscious things such as movement, while your brain does the automatic stuff, it sometimes steals control from you, such as when you flinch or scream in fear or react to heat.  

       We can’t control those things because they are instinctual, our self-aware minds evolved recently in evolutionary history, life was mostly automatic for a long time, our control is something new, though still emergent from instincts such as curiosity that come with intelligent brains like ours.

       It is an adaptation, that gives an edge compared to more mindless creatures like plants, most animals have some amount of “control” over their actions, we just have the most, though creatures such as elephants or dolphins and some of our primate cousins are pretty close.

  656. Jave Lester Odvina

    Explain me the detailed process on how we came from single celled organism into multicellular organism then into complex-multicelled organism to prove that Evolution is true…

    If there are those cells that refuse to die, then, couldn’t we use those always existing cells, couldn’t we find a way to make people not age?

    1. Hunter Da Beast

      True I guess

    2. Fandom guy

      Easier said then done.

    3. Hunter Da Beast

      Or maybe, if they can’t find the way, what they could do is make some kind of poison to the other cells to die faster, so there wouldn’t be so much cells

    4. Fandom guy

      @Hunter Da Beast.  Maybe? There’s a reason we don’t have it yet.

    5. Hunter Da Beast

      But, couldn’t we find a way to use the cell never dying to our advantage?

      Indeed, curse Human’s complex emotion systems.  He baited us with the use of 1. cute design which stimulates pre-evolved baby sympathy emotions, 2. sad face self explanatory.  3.  change in tone of voice to a more sympathetic one.  We’re very sensitive to tones of sound, since we’re one of millions of organisms that have evolved to communicate with sound and since we’re 1 of 2 groups of organism (primates and cetaceans (whale family) that have evolved really complicated vocalization systems.   It’s why we make/are sensitive to things like music.   Well played.

    You are the pathways in your brain. Your brain fires in specific patterns giving me my personality and likes and dislikes and makes me behave like i do. Different firing patterns makes someone else. Even though my cells change the shape of my brain is kept roughly the same, the pathways are kept roughly the same. This is why i am different than i was when i was a kid because i have many new pathways now than before and have learned many new things, so i behave differently and have a different personality than when i was 7 and probably will be different when im 70. However a lot of the brain patterns are the same and memories are there so i can remember what it was like when i was 7. Its all just to do with the neural networks, they are what make us different. You’re ego is an illusion, it is all just brain networks firing and this firing is being controlled by the laws of physics.

    1. Fandom guy

      So, you are *data*.  As a computer’s behavior is governed by circuit pathways.

    The reality/answer is we are all the same person. You believe you are unique because you dont know any better/different but just about any experience or person if you try hard enough you can understand just how they feel, put yourself in their shoes. You are who you are partly because of dna but mostly because of your life experiences but there are only so many? Nomatter what you have experienced someone else has also or will also. There are only a set number of emotions any human can have but we all experience them. There also seems to be a set number of personalities? In every town in every school there are bullies, nerds, loners, leaders, every kind. Like when you meet someone that reminds you so much of someone else you know. Ever read that story “the egg”?
