This came across me in my readings and I have (among other obsessions) a desire to find proof of a soul. This boy Noah Wall was basically born without a brain and the brain controls EVERYTHING about us. Yet he lacks one? Is a brain not necessary to survive. Are you more than just grey matter?

Wait. It apparently grew a few months later but he was STILL born without it.

this has all the hallmarks of poor reporting. Hydrocephalus is water on the brain. It'd be really hard to have the condition without a brain.

 

it also states that his life functions were maintained via his brain stem which would account for way more than 2% of the brain. but even then it's often referred to as a reptile brain, because in very primative animals that's a larger part of all the brain that develops.

 

past that point I can only offer speculation about brain development and self being a function of emergent patterns of thought within a fractal matrix which any percentage of a brain stem would contain the seed for.
