I would be interested to know if a brain were frozen solid, each atom was seperated, put in a jar, then placed back together again, how that would feel. Who knows, there may be some methods of disassembly that do not lose the 'person.' Such a claim is an assumption.

Who knows? Maybe there is some neural-logic gates at the subatomic levels that allows a self-referencing recursive self-awareness proccess to occur where the atoms choose to spin. I don't. To say that consciouness exists only at our macro/micro size in the universe is equivalent to saying that Jesus is a savior, IMHO. I haven't seen it, but patterns tend to repeat in fractal nature.
