Can heart transplant change personality?
Soul and emotion
I read a news article today that a man became the first recipient of pig heart in the history. It made me wonder whether the recipient of pig heart shows different personality. How does his body and mind respond to the transplant with pig heart in his daily life?
It is not secrete any longer that each organ in the body is home to a soul and a mind of the owner. The body is the home of the person, the host and the original owner, but it is never the home of the soul or the mind.
Some articles show that personality of the recipient has changed with similarity to the donor’s since transplant. It seems apparent that the recipient experiences change in souls and emotions after transplant.
Organs contain souls
In east Asian medicine, each organ contains its soul and emotion in it. Lung contains po (corporeal soul) and grief. Liver contains hun (ethereal soul) and anger. Kidney contains zhi (will) and fear. Spleen contains yi (intent) and pensiveness. Heart contains shen (spirit) and joy.
People in ancient China assigned five animals to five organs. They assigned a dog to liver, horse to heart, cow to spleen, lung to chicken and pig to kidney.
In Korean folk medicine, people used pigs for detoxification. Someone becomes bitten by a poisonous snake and loses consciousness with swelling. Town people open a pig’s abdomen, remove all organs from a pig and place the person into the pig. The person would go to hospital nowadays.
It is also interesting to know how pork reacts in our body after you eat it. It tonifies kidney and liver, and sedates spleen. You may want to feel your pulses after eating pork.
