These are the only hearts available, and the brain is aware of this, for the brain knows hearts. If the rail man lives, he too will in fact be on the brain. If the ten hearts will die and their kidneys will grow up to cure cancer, there are other kidneys available; however the brain does not know kidneys, and this is not a factor.
