Soul of the Essence

Would someone be so inclined to assist me in interpreting this? In a way its almost contradictory.

Essence is defined as "the attribute (or set of attributes) that make an object or substance what it fundamentally is."

While Soul is defined as "the ethereal substance — spirit (Hebrew:rooah or nefesh) — particular to a unique living being. Such traditions often consider the soul both immortal and innately aware of its immortal nature, as well as the true basis for sentience in each living being."

But what really throws things for a loop is this definition for Soul... "The Soul is the Essence of self, the part of self that exist after death, and during after life separate from the physical vessel, also the soul exists with the spirit and body in a trinity during life."

Part of what? Can you give us the full context or a link?
"When Cutter is discovered by the natives of the planet, he is mistakenly hailed as a returning god called the Ulukai, Soul of the Essence."

[Soul / Innermost Core / Embodiment / Spirit] of the [Essence / The Most Essential / Sine Qua Non ]

It's almost a nonsense combination of words to evoke the feeling of deep mystery and other-worldliness. It suggests not just Soul or Essence or Most Important Part, but the Soul of the Soul or the Essence of the Essence or the Most Important Part of the Most Important Part, i.e., that which is even more inner than what is innermost. Paradox is important in such pseudo-religious contexts. It's supposed to short-circuit the brain and leave the reader in awe of the mystery. Emotion: smile

If this is THEIR title, it's just a play meant to attract attention.
It's just a made-up quasi-religious title in a computer game; these are often quite strange. They don't really have to make sense in the real world.

Also, I don't know where the developers were based but it might be a fair assumption that it may have been a Japanese game originally. Maybe this is a direct translation of something that makes more sense in Japanese, or maybe it is an example of 'Engrish'.
