There is a fundamental flaw in this t-shirt from fuzzy ink. Or at least I think there is.
Surely the brain, and so the self, exists within the head, not the body. Now – there is the elongated knob that the lego head fixes onto. I’ve always seen that as an extension of the spinal column though – it shoves INTO the brain. Maybe the brain is actually housed within this ‘spinal knob’ and the head is simply the face, ears, somewhere to stick the hair.
Put yourself in the position of the lego man. I think you’ll know which is preferable. Almost all of your senses are driven from your head. The important ones anyway. Sight – Sound – Smell – Taste – Some touch. If your brain is in your head at least you keep those senses when some 8 year old decapitates you and you roll under the couch.
Imagine the consequences if your brain is in the spinal knob. Sure, you could crawl away using your arms and legs (assuming they haven’t been pulled off too) but where are you crawling to?
No – I’m pretty sure the brain is in the head. In which case, this t-shirt is insane. Just insane.
