An interesting question asked in another thread...I thought I'd extend it a little......

Why do we have a soul?
Why do we have a body?
Do animals have souls?
Are there different types of souls?
Does a soul grow in any way?
Does a soul have an age?
How is the soul connected to the body?
Do souls have feelings?
Do you believe in soulmates?
Does the soul exist before conception?
What does a lost soul mean?
Is it possible to sell your soul?
What is the origin of the soul?

Do souls really exist or is it only a human invention created out of their insecurity over the fact that maybe nothing happens when you die?

i have a pink soul. Does this sound familiar to anyone here?
Here's my 2 pence:

What is the Soul? - The real person, without many of the phsyical constraints.
Why do we have a soul? - We have a body, we ARE a soul.
Why do we have a body? - To learn at this level.
Do animals have souls? - Don't know, hope so.
Are there different types of souls? - Older and younger (not good/evil)
Does a soul grow in any way? - Yes, over time (lots of it, many lifetimes)
Does a soul have an age? - Yes
How is the soul connected to the body? - Probably using simple "physics" we don't really understand yet.
Do souls have feelings? - Yes.
Do you believe in soulmates? - Not in the way most people do.
Does the soul exist before conception? - Of course!
What does a lost soul mean? - Some term used to describe a person who's not achieving their best (nothing to do with any of the above)
Is it possible to sell your soul? - No
What is the origin of the soul? - Take a wild guess, it's as good as mine.
Can a soul die? - Not sure, wouldn't think so, we could probably take 'steps back' though.

Do souls really exist or is it only a human invention created out of their insecurity over the fact that maybe nothing happens when you die? - I very much doubt itEmotion: smile

Nice Answer
Hitchhiker,
how does the soul leave the body when dying? First does the body die and for that the soul goes or does death come when soul leaves the body or...?

The questions are serious but , besides, I'll say to you that if you are able to understand that my English sure you can asnwer whatever thing in life.
What do you think about this topic Elena?
What are your views on the questions I mentioned at the beginning?
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
The problem is that I have no answers for that, I can't say what is soul, so, the next questions are impossible to me. The only one I can answer is about soulmates, yes, I believe in the existence of soulmates.
Let me think, I don't want to give up so soon, mm, soul, mm, a mix between brain and heart become in some spiritual thing? I'll continue thinking....
Elena, your English is fine; I'd say that the soul (coincidentally like nearly all religions stipulate) takes some time to completely let go of the body after death; probably 3 days! I would say physical death occurs when the brain dies (but that's a question for doctors)

My guess is the body is a tool, and is disposable (dust to dust and all that)
Can souls virtually fuse?
