Good answer.

Personally I think the "original" mind stays with the "original" body. Just replacing half the material really doesn't mean anything because the new material is identical to the old. And while the material making up the original is being replaced it is only bit by bit so the body remains a functional unit as a whole. The "problem" only arises when you try to think of the problem in materialistic terms. The "material" may give rise to the mind but after that it has achieved a measure of independence from it. However until the complete dissolution of the body it will still have an association with it. Since the body in the problem is only in suspended animation that dissolution has not occurred thus the original association remains intact.

What do you think of my solution?

I agree. Although IMO the material doesn't so much give rise to the mind as the complexity viewed in the material brain corresponds to the complexity of the non-material mind.

In other words the body needs the mind as much as the mind needs body.

Yes. As I understand it, the physical Brain is necessary-but-not-sufficient to produce a self-reflecting Mind. Likewise with Body & Soul. The extra ingredient, beyond the physical substrate is a tipping-point of complexity (self-referencing feedback loops) which causes a natural "phase transition" from automatic information processing to autonomous thinker.

The tie-in to Deism is that all of these phenomena and functions are ultimately various forms of generic information generated by the Universal Mind.
