The Body is the Soul

The soul ain’t some random gaseous substance which can exist independently of your body. No. Your body is your soul, and your soul is your body.

Which means: when your body dies, your soul dies too.

The Body is the Soul


Why do we believe in an immortal soul?

Mostly a Judeo-Christian notion. Also extends to the ancient greeks (who believed in Hades … the under-world). Interestingly enough, the ancient greeks didn’t believe in a ‘heaven’ — that was reserved for the gods (not humans).
