    Do you think the knowledge of the person is saved in his brain or in his spirit?

    Science claims the brain is the depository of all human knowledge. The scripture recorded "what things soever a man so knoweth save the spirit of man that is in him and of God, the spirit of God".

    nice question really, I think that it depends on person itself.

    You don't get an easy answer, because you aren't looking for one.  The easy answer is "knowledge is stored in the brain," but you don't like that answer.

    Why not write a hub about your ideas?

    It is saved in his spirit. This is from firsthand experience that I have when GOD on August 1, 1982 A.D. a Sunday morning shown me in a vision the other side of death. A spirit does not have a brain and it is imprinted on your spirit and will lead you to everything on the other side of death. The knowledge that you have learned on the earth will be ingrain in your spirit forever and you will continue on the other side of death to grow in truth and grace over there on the other side of death.

    All knowledge, experiences before your birth, past lives, during your life and those beyond your death is be stored within your soul or spirit.

    Your brain is just a processing unit within your body.
    Every night when your soul temporarily leaves the body, the brain is totally confused and lives in an illusionary world called dreams.

    Scientists have noted that those who had near death experience, can recall what was happening around them during that period when the brain was out of commission.

    I would say the brain. Memories are stored in the brain. For knowledge you must have it in the memories. Though I am a psychologist, this might not be the responce you want.

    It is saved in the spirit where all supernatural ability is congregated.The brain have cells,neurons,and DNA and cannot produce knowledge.Only by spiritual definition can knowledge be define,which is without material function .

    Is your question about the spirit of god or.......I'm confused?!?!?  In regards to the knowledge of a person.  Of course it is saved in his/her brain.  Wht purpose does ones brain serve.  As you live you learn, dont you?

    Wait a minute I just read Apostle Jacks comment how do you know it is saved by spiritual definition?

    The knowledge of a person is saved in the brain. The brain is the storage chest for people's existence. The spirit is a universal entity that is imparted into our being when we are born. It knows all but our brain determines how much from the spirit will be released into the brain as knowledge...I'm impressed with that(smile).

    I'm  of the belief (though it's not carved in stone) that the brain is more of a 'switchboard' which operates the incoming and outgoing signals between the soul and the our physicality.   I'm of the opinion that the 'mind,' i.e. our personal mind, is contained within the interpenitrating auras which surrounds us when we are alive (Kirlian Photography appears to support this) along with the emotional content contained in those thoughts (mind and memory)

    But we're also a part of Universal Mind, which extends beyond the aura.   My belief is that when we die our personal memories, talents, qualities, gifts all continue, and that all that is actually shed are the vibrations (energy patterns) which make up our physical bodies.   They go back as per 'ashes to ashes just to dust.'   We are immortal.

    Our physical body dies but not our spirit. So, what will remain of us when we depart from this earth is our spirit. It remains till we are reborn.

    We are our consciousness.

    Our brain extends down our spine and vagus nerve. There are 12 pairs of cranial nerves that extend throughout the body..

    The spinal cord works independently from the brain and extends it's own nerves. So the brain surrounds us, and is how we know who we are.

    Without all this we couldn't ask anything of God.

    Everything we know or have experienced, first enters our brain where it is accepted or rejected. If the mind sees it as fact, it files down toward the abdominal area (notice where you feel it when you discover a new fact. It sorta leaps in your belly)
    Once something is accepted, it is imprinted on our spirit.

    My personal soul is the sum of me.  It is me.

    Everything else is a distinct part..........those parts make up my soul.

    Even the wounded, maimed, and crippled have a soul, those without a soul, have no thing.

    Knowledge, and memories are stored in our memory cells that are located throughout our bodies.

    All experience reflects from the 5 senses the 5 senses also memorize the effects in memory, which is stored in the brain. The Soul not to confuse  with the Spirit, is a persons Character, Personality. The spirit is the life giving force that controls the life of all things in the body and they are Soul and Body.
    Man is three thing yet one. Spirit Soul and Body, just like God Father Son and Holy Spirit yet One.

    I believe that knowledge of this world is so engraved in our brain and then disappear, but our memories and feelings are entrenched in our souls. If you were a good man or bad, right or wrong decisions and the way the world believe contributed qwue remain forever engraved in his soul.

    I think the brain is a physical medium for our thoughts, just like our body is the physical medium for our being. In the physical world, knowledge is stored in our brain. In the spiritual world, knowledge is stored in our soul. I've heard numerous testimonies of people who lived through clinical death, and they could remember everything even though they were outside of their bodies.

    Nothing is right or wrong. Your answer largely reflects what kind of person are you, whether carnal or spiritual. A carnal persons choses brain and he is correct. To him that is righteousness. A spiritual man choses his spirit. And to him that is righteousness. No one choses the other way around for if you do, to you that is a sin. Both answers have enough backups to justify. However, the type of reward you engaged into largely depend on what you do and what you believe. If God is to be true, he will not persecute a man for what he truly believes but honors it. And it does not follow that you will be saved simply because you are there all day all night trolling God but not gaining any spiritual value. That would be loathsome. When God casted knowledge, he sees to it that everyone must have enough. Simply because you fail to distinguish and correlate to others what you have and what you do not have doesnt change the fact that all are equally created. What is richness? What is poverty? What is great talent? What is incapability? What is success? What is failure? 2000 years ago, someone came and showed the world that worldly success does not guarantee salvation, and that serving is not inferior over the one being served. And that he who is the greatest, let him be your slave, and that the rich will hardly enter the kingdom of God. Let's not see the context literally and argue over this one. All activities, if you look beyond the horizon have to converge to a common point. That point can be evolution or God or God evolving things or evolution creating God, or the monster spaghetti etc. Etc... who knows what is? And who pretends to know what is? Or who assumes to know what is? Obviously, it is lifes objective to have us interact, agree, disagree and perform all sorts of activities, experience human dilemmas and find cure to it, experience pain and seek comfort. Experience evil and find the light. But honestly, if life has to convey meaning, brain is not enough to handle human knowledge. For brain perishes but the spirit does not. And it is hard not to notice God's declaration that humans have spirit where all we know consists. Just as He does. And this of course will be redirected to the validity of God. The facts has already been laid down to us and the time does not let us thirst. Simply because He would not show up doesn't dismiss all these facts. Perhaps the safest answer is to, listen to what your heart says for in the end you won't have regrets. G00dluck!
