On the question of "soul":

Carefuluniverse wrote:

"but the questions were whether the soul can enter
another body....whether you are your soul...and if not, who are you and who is your soul?

If you don't know the answer to this, you should just shut up when trying to tell some woman what to do with what's inside her."

There is a false asumption here. "Some woman" is assumed to be more real and relevant than "some unborn infant".

The being "inside her" is demonstrably NOT a part of the woman's body. It is not legitimate to kill a 1 yr old infant, regardless of its dependence on the mother. Dependence, or even a parasitic relationship, does not alter the biological facts of a situation where there are two creatures present, e.g. when a woman is with child: 1. woman, 2. child.

Want to discover your soul?
Try this:
Stand on a high object or fence, say 6ft or 2 meters, and attempt to jump off on to a soft surface (like soft playground surfaces).

Can't "bring yourself" to jump?

Or: try to run then jump over an athletics high jump set at a difficult level. Can't carry yourself over the bar?

What is going on here?

There seems to be an ethereal, transparant version of "you" that sometimes has coordination difficulty in "dragging the bodily-you out of bed early in the morning", or in "carrying bodily-you over the high-jump bar", or in "going with bodily-you" when fearful of jumping from an uncomfortable height.

Ever fallen suddenly, on a rollercoaster say, and "your heart was in your mouth"? It appears that what happens there is that your brain has an internal model of your body's spatial orientation, balance, and inertial position. When you dropped suddenly, your actual location of your mouth dropped down to the brain-modelled location of your heart so quickly as to create an overlap (like an after-image occurs with eyesight sometimes).

But this does not mean that "soul" is merely a projection by the brain. People who deliberately trigger so-called out-of-body-experiences have written how to do this. It's interesting to note that they deliberately confuse themselves re: spatial co-ordination.

There is a real, transparant soul that apprantly accompanies your body-perception; the instances of the breaking down of coordination that occur with the high jump, or the jump off a fence etc. seem to involve a heightened consciousness of one's soul dimension. Soul seems characterised by intention.

But human adults, however athletic they are, still apparantly are not coordinated spiritually. They drag their bodies around, operating them like a puppet on a string. Newborn and just born infants however, have instantaneous body - intention coordination; they are much more alive.

Humans appear to be three-in-one beings; body, spirit, and soul. In the natural state, all 3 are as 1. In the unnatural state, there is a lack of coordination. A feature of this non-coordination appears to be distraction by beliefs about the future. It is as if humans are not living fully in the present, their souls entangled in an imagined future.
