    But . . . it worked for Neo in the Matrix. Blow up the universe - save the girl.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    When people use the word "soul," they usually mean self-awareness. Obviously I believe in self-awareness, although I don't necessarily attach the same qualities to it that a Christian does. Where a Christian would say that a soul transcends the physical, I say that a soul is itself physical, since a soul (or self-conception) can and must be taken as an object of awareness before it exists. Prior to this moment, a conscious being is either without a self or has a self only in the loose sense of being conscious (which is to say being distinct from the environment; having subject-object relations, and among these, a primordial one that acts as the precondition to awareness).

    who does this? because I always thought if they meant self awareness they would say self awareness.

    I think everyone does. I can't imagine someone referring to their soul without their soul being something they identify with on some level.

    I don't. I just don't believe that's true, honestly.

    If you say you have a soul, you're already identifying it with yourself, if only as your possession. Really, though, I can't see someone placing their soul on the same level as a sandwich or something. When I use the word, at least, it's meant to encapsulate something deep down and essential about me. My soul is my self in a nutshell, and this is my impression of what other people mean when they talk about their soul. If that isn't how you use the word, I'd be interested to hear your version.

    I don't believe I have a soul, and I do believe that self is an illusion.
