To learn, read. To know, write. To master, teach.
I wrote this essay today just for this thread:
1. What did people think of it in ancient times? Admittedly, there can be no a single understanding as many people have different ideas. Therefore, your soul essay can provide ideas of such prominent philosophers as Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, Aquinas or Kant. Many custom essays and custom term papers consider different philosophical issues concerning the concept.
2.Your soul essay can also focus on religious interpretation. You can choose a particular religion or compare the interpretations of the concept in different religions in your soul essay. What is accepted in Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, Taoism, etc.? You can try to explain why these religions developed such concepts.
3.Your soul essay can deal with scientific approach. What about Duncan MacDougall’s experiments? Try to prove he was right. Your
soul essay can also discuss works of such scientists as Francis Crick, E.O. Wilson or Daniel Dennett. What arguments did they provide?
4.It is possible to consider the way soul is depicted in art: literature, visual arts, cinematography. Your soul essay can provide an analysis of such works. What philosophical, religious or scientific motives can be found in this or that depiction? For example, the film 21 Grams is based on scientific approach. It can be interesting to analyze another famous work The Wizard of Oz in your soul essay.Thus, Baum created a character who wished to have a heart. Can it be regarded as a kind of searching for one’s soul?
Your question is about as meaningful as asking...
"What information element is onsetvoinfovia?"
If you use an ill-defined concept, you'll receive mumbo-jumbo as answers.
Various definitions of "soul":
1. The animating and vital principle in humans, credited with the faculties of thought, action, and emotion and often conceived as an immaterial entity.
2. The spiritual nature of humans, regarded as immortal, separable from the body at death, and susceptible to happiness or misery in a future state.
3. The disembodied spirit of a dead human.
4. A human: "the homes of some nine hundred souls" (Garrison Keillor).
5. The central or integral part; the vital core: "It saddens me that this network ... may lose its soul, which is after all the quest for news" (Marvin Kalb).
6. A person considered as the perfect embodiment of an intangible quality; a personification: I am the very soul of discretion.
7. A person's emotional or moral nature: "An actor is ... often a soul which wishes to reveal itself to the world but dare not" (Alec Guinness).
8. A sense of ethnic pride among Black people and especially African Americans, expressed in areas such as language, social customs, religion, and music.
9. A strong, deeply felt emotion conveyed by a speaker, a performer, or an artist.
10. Soul music.

Oh, I like Northern Soul as well.
I see souls as entities that the universe respects as having indestructable fundamental identity. You might call them "persistent, closed awareness potentials". While souls can only have consciousness with a body, and can only have one body at a time, souls can be reincarnated.
Perhaps more to the point, "why am I not you?" While consciousness is a property of the brain, and doesn't exist without it, distinct awareness is something different. Why is awareness "closed"? What "medium" is the soul made of?

that's silly. lol.
"If you can find out little melodies for yourself on the piano it is all very well. But if they come of themselves when you are not at the piano, then you have still greater reason to rejoice; for then the inner sense of music is astir in you. The fingers must make what the head wills, not vice versa."- Robert Schumann
If we look at the IM chain, you have gamma Ni (instruction) is base for beta Ni (action) which influences beta Fe (emotion) is base for alpha Fe (ethic) which influences alpha Si (qualia), is base for delta Si (function), which influences delts Te (role).
Experience is the processing of qualia and the feedback (sensation) from the processing. Technically both belong under the banner of alpha Si (that thing ISFPs specialize in and ISFP EMs engorge themselves in and with). But I would treat the element as what goes into the function (qualia, in the case of alpha Si) as opposed to the product of the function's processing (sensation). The element is the type of the atom, not the association between atoms of the type.

Nothing in this thread is to be repeated. Keep it quiet. We are on the edge of a major breakthrough. I swear to God, don't pass this around.
Yeah, Tcaud....it's a stupid question honestly...
Nothing else seems to exist outside my pure instinct to survive. Rank, personal history and birth, race, sex, a name given to you. Its all meaningless, this is the only thing that's real, to fight on behalf of own life and nothing else.

I did not know that. That's interesting.
