That depends. Do you think there is a distinction between those two things?

And just for clarification, I'm not talking about simply severing the corpus callosum, and it is given that both hemispheres of the brain tend to specialize in different aspects of intelligence.

We're strictly talking about consciousness.

i think the simplest good answer to give to your simple question is that the left hand is part of a whole body, which is part of a whole way of being. the left hand is different from the privileged right hand (basically everywhere except china), etc.

if you're really asking the question of "which side of the brain (left or right) are you-- the conscious you-- on like if you're cut in half" as if this is something which could be answered either by any of us or by science, then i think you're thinking wrongly about consciousness itself (let me educate you). think of the activity of consciousness as symbolic assemblages, and think of consciousness as imaginative apprehension. it's not as if there's a conscious you separate from your body, even if you perceive of yourself as "embodied". if the body/brain is split in half, you as you were are split in half. then the question of whether you are (on) the right or left half is made absurd-- it's a linguistic trick really-- since you're dead.

As a physicalist, I'm already of the opinion that consciousness is an emergent phenomenon, and not particularly special in that regard.

I think the question might be more interesting or it might bring out some subtleties to consider on your other question if we stipulate the body gets split in half horizontally rather than vertically (leaving top and bottom halves) and also that both halves survive.
