Exactly, zero brain = zero life. What he had was a malformed brain. Misleading story is misleading.

Its not though if you guys read it. It states he was born with a brain stem which includes all of the parts necessary for basic living (motor capabilities and the autonomous actions that keep your body alive).

Motor functions, breathing, heart rate, reflexes, and some miscellaneous functions are controlled by the brain stem.... He could live, move to some degree (though likely with no coordination or.... "intent," for lack of a better word) It's definitely possible for him to live... I, personally, just discount the idea that he could show emotion and be reactive in any more than an instinctual way.... I think sometimes people, especially parents, see what they want to see... Which is why they say he could do x, y, and z when his brain stem is simply incapable of doing so.

Thanks for the response!
