  1. All living things have a soul, as we understand and perceive it. Otherwise, why do we need the term animate or non-animate object?

    Without going into the depths of philosophy, politics, or medicine, I believe in the existence of the soul.

  2. Probably not. The same question was asked by biologist Duncan McDougall in 1907. I won't go into more details, but in short, he conducted an experiment in which 6 terminally ill people took part. He put the unfortunate on the scales and measured how much the body weight changes after death.(don't ask how he did it)

    The results of the experiment showed that a person decreases in weight “exactly” by 21 grams immediately after cardiac arrest, which supposedly proves that the existence of the soul is real. At the same time, he measured the weight of 15 test dogs, but the weight after their death did not change, which, according to the scientist, denied the fact of the existence of souls in dogs and other small animals. But things are not as rosy as we think. After digging through the documented results, it was found that only one in six subjects had changes in weight, which breaks his theory, as well as the dreams of all believers. Why did the test subject have such a sharp jump in weight? The answer is quite simple: from the fact that the lungs no longer cool the blood, there is a sharp jump in body temperature, because of which Trupetsky “drops” a few grams. What about dogs: their cooling occurs mainly through the mouth, so after death, moisture does not leave the body, and, therefore, its weight does not decrease.

    Science is not yet able to prove the existence of the soul or other astral body that sits in each of us, and it is unlikely that it will be possible to find out in the near future. We should have already come to terms with the fact that we are just atoms connected together by complex reactions and which consist of the same material as stars and other cosmic rubbish.Consciousness is born in the brain , and it dies with the brain. There was no soul, is not and will not be. The only reason we consider ourselves spiritual beings and think about such questions is because we have a memory. We are completely dependent on it. As one famous philosopher said:”It is not we who have memory, but it has us.” If it didn't exist, our consciousness wouldn't exist either. So, most likely after death, your memory is instantly erased, and … that's it, the end))))))))

  3. Man is the soul (as one Athenian said, as one Hindu hinted, as explained in the chronicles of Inner Mongolia and the storehouses of world (especially Northern Irish, Indian-Chinese-Japanese and a little German) philosophy). There are no bodies-on-their-own. Forget about the mind-and-body-problem. There is only a collection of souls (or spirits, or monads, or living subjects, or “pure consciousnesses” or “selves” – in general, transcendent subjects in relation to space and time, which” cannot be pointed at”) that pass through the flow of experiences (or sensations, or perceptions-thoughts and volitional acts are some of their forms, because thought-in-itself and volitional act-in-itself are unthinkable outside the act of experiencing, and therefore they are something experienced). And to be convinced of the truth of this radical spiritualist idea, no arguments are needed – only an intuitive grasp is necessary and sufficient (or “turning the eyes of the soul” or “awakening the mind” – because to realize this truth, we must see what cannot be pointed with the finger).

    Similarly, the players of a certain computer network game are not pixel characters on monitors, but those who control them by means of information input, looking at the screens of their computers (namely “in”, and not” on ” – and not because of grammar, but because of semantics, because the player's attention is directed not at the surface of the screen, but at its space-time moment). The world of this computer network game does not exist by itself-there are only visible pixel images that continuously change in accordance with the combination of code and commands entered by players.

    Let us conclude this haiku of thought with the words of one great passionary: “Looking at the horse faces and faces of people, at the boundless living stream raised by my will and rushing to nowhere until the crimson sunset steppe, I often think: where am I in this stream?”
