Ok. What is the Soul?. I'm sorry to say this, but there is no SOUL.
There is no........ethereal property in man. Proof of this comes from the bible. Since there is no immediate ascention to heaven or Fall to hell upon death, (that belief is completely contrary to what the Bible teaches) there can be no soul. What i like to think of the "Soul" is just "The Breath of God". The same Breath He breathed into Adam. When we die, that leaves us.

What has the immediacy of ascension/descension got to do with the existence of the soul?

The whole idea of a Soul came about from incorrect interpretation of the Bible and other.....manuscripts.Twas my point. Was using that as an example.

This means, when this breath leaves, life leaves man. Yet the soul is a recurring word and theme, and requires allocation. That man 'becomes' a living soul, infers an emulation of another, precedent and pre-existing phenomenon, which now man is also bestwed in this physical realm, and the residue which he takes with him when he ceases breathing and is not alive anymore.

The Soul, if you look closely, COULD have been used in the way you are suggesting. But upon research,I've come to realize that the "Soul" is just a referance to a person. "Living soul"="Living Person"=Living Being"

My understanding is, the breath is one of five components of a human soul, the other components being spirit, animal soul [instinct], elevated human soul ingredient, and the mind. Obviously, there has to be a form of recording all imprints of each living being, which prevails after life, and this factor most probably refers to what is commonly referred to as the soul.

Correct, Paul talks about this in Corinthians, these separate parts of man. the Spirit is a referance to the Spirit of God, and, since it is the Spirit of God, it is not yours. The same Spirit that He breathed into Adam. So, if the Spirit is not yours, and the spirit is a component of a Soul, how can there be an ethereal Soul? Components of man: Dirt & Spirit. :D the mind is just part of the dirt.
