    I kind of had the thought that we might be symbiant beings, with the body being one animal and the soul another. Could this explain alot? Is it a nonstarter.

      The soul is the soul. The body is merely a vessel; and a pesky one at that.

      When I first read the question, I thought you meant something along the lines of whether we all have 'alter-egos' within us...to which I'd have been obliged to reply, yes!

      But as far as the body being different from the soul, like many people, I believe the soul is infinite while the body is temporary.

        That's really interesting...I hadn't thought about the question the way you did, but now that I do, I agree. I often like to say that the best conversations I have are among Me, myself, and I. I know they are separate entities. There may be more, too *scratching head*.

      Yes there is a Celestial Spirit inside of us,with power and intelligence.It is supernatural and cannot be destroyed. Scientist know about the flesh......BUT not the SPIRIT. So they go away with only half the knowledge.

              E=Mc2 Energy = mass and Light as well as Vibrations we all come from One sources which Is define either GOD or the Universe with death comes deterioration  in which you are recycled or return to source either a Material source or a spiritual force we Understand Material source but we have yet to define the undefinable Spiritual Force who is as well a Material force which the combination creates GOD All in All the First and the Last  it is very simple when you study It and Yet It does seem to Be BS doesn't It?

                Sorry, anything spiritual is based solely on mysticism. Mysticism was debunked decades ago, as an individual being intellectually dishonest.

                Using Einstein's theory is distortion, considering even his theory was incomplete. wink

                  Facts are what they are what ever you are calling It. IT Is and IT has always been and Will always be for If It ends So do We.  Be not Afraid IT is with you always.

                  For you do not exist with out It. I prefer To Call It Father Creator GOD you prefer ? What not to mention IT and Maybe It will Fade away? All life is incomplete for it is ever expanding growing outward and inward and in every direction.

                  It is eternal It can't be Caught or stopped or contained It is the First and It will be the Last.

                  Simple I think God explains Himself very well in my opinion. I am a spirit covered in Dust and within that smallest participial of that dust It is and It has traversed every expanse of that particle and every other particle before every other particle that is.

                When you know what you know,there is no room for theories. I speak from experience and confidence of knowing. I have both been allow by God to see and experience His reality of spiritual existence. What anyone else say is a well without water.

      When I first read this questions, I thought that it might be psychology based. looking at personality. if this were so I would have to say yes.

      However, looking at it from a body and soul perspective, it's very hard to quantify. The body is made of physical matter, out thoughts and feeling are not. This does give us two separate entities, one being largely dependant on the other to exist. What happens after death is a different subject, so I'll stick to the point lol.

      Actually, I've made my point lol. Thank you for posting, it's motivated me to think aout it wink.

      In order for the soul to experience third dimensional density it needs a vehicle.  We use these bodies for the sole purpose of expressing our own individuality that is separate from the Source.  Separateness is another trait of third dimensional reality. 

      Once we transcend the third layer and move into fourth and fifth dimension density we no longer have a need (or desire for the matter) for the physical body and we can exist in the consciousness of all. 

      We are multidimensional beings experiencing many scenarios simultaneously.   Our true forms are not "made of" flesh and water, but of light and vibrational frequencies.

      We do seem to be both chemical and electrical entities. The chemical aspect does seem to indicate that the mind and body are one. And that when one dies, so does the other.

      Scotch would be the most common for me...got a chuckle out of your reply.

      But every time I have a thought about a grandmother long passed or about a friend nearby, I feel they are inside me, a part of me, and for as long as I am here, their essences will live in me.

        Your experience can be explained by your emotional connection to those individuals. It doesn't mean that their essence lives inside you. wink

          Oh for Pete's sake, read paradigmsearch's post here. We are chemical and electrical entities as well as entities that haven't been explained yet, because we don't know all the physical things we are made of nor our relationship to physical things we don't even understand yet. Emotions are chemically and electrically related. As far as I'm concerned, my emotions are intertwined with energy in some form originating from someone else living or dead. wink back atcha.

    Curious theory. At what point do you think the soul steps into the body? Do you think a soul is necessary to animate the human form? I assume you probably think the soul survives without the body; but do you see it possible the other way around? Do you think the body is dependent upon a soul for survival?

    I ask this, because years ago I couldn't come to terms with the actions of some people. Serial killers, pedophiles; things of that nature. I met a guy who was without moral fiber and his eyes were so flat, like there was no spark of life in him. I spent a few years wondering if some were born without a soul.

      to be honest i had a struggle spelling symbiant, but, and, what could make more sense the power that is inside us why not symbiant. I am really sorry beacuase a simple thing that has run in my head has now started me on a theologic discusion outside of this forum. Back soon!!!!

        But, it couldn't be obligatory symbiosis. If you think the soul lives on. Which is why I wondered if the body could survive without a soul too. I guess it all comes down to what you consider the soul to be.

    Not such a stupid question - something triggered a change in humans (about 80,000 years ago) to give us such a relatively large amount of brain. It may be possible that the original animal was infected with a virus that changed the DNA, mitochondrial DNA, and so we are really half the original human animal and half something else.  The fact that mitochondrial DNA moves to the next generation through the sperm is a good trick.

    Marymootoo, very interesting question.

    Here's my current take on it. Our true self is spirit (soul) and this is immortal or, more accurately, timeless. The body frequently knows nothing of this true self because it is too fixated on ego (the pseudo-self, master of this world which feels entitled to be important and right).

    The Heavenly Father wants His children back safely and undoubtedly would give them every opportunity to return to Him. This would include reincarnation -- as you said, the soul in another shell.

    The object of it all is the re-awakening of the spirit. Once consciousness is transferred to the true self, then "everlasting life" is possible. When the body dies, consciousness continues in the timeless being -- the true self, child of God.

    1. Cagsil profile image81
      Cagsilposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      By your description, then there's no logical reason one would have to believe in a god, considering life(including spirit) would be recycled anyways. Again, intellectually dishonest.

      Yes, ego does get in the way for many, and don't think that this post is about ego, because it's not. However, with that said, if life was truly eternal through spirit, then regardless of believe in a god or not, it would continue on regardless.
