soul: [see also: grace, life's meaning, and sin]
A soul is probably created out of core non-dimensional substance of Universe [i.e. all
universes; see Synergetics by R. Buckminster FULLER] and so indirectly
[or directly?] probably out of thread [or based upon said thread] of
God Himself [and thus eternal -- only God is eternal].
Soul is the operative element of all things 'living' and its eternal
existence includes free-willed mind [as distinct from brain -- used by
mind as one of its instruments].
The soul's core non-dimensional substance of Universe with its linkage
to body also provides distinction from, and supremacy over, all merely
material elements and fabrications, such as robots -- and likely provides
inter-dimensional mental/brain-function thought promptings/harmonics
that is communication additional to that from Holy Spirit.
Paired with the body at conception, they share experience &
knowledge & the results of all decisions [grace facets, or
rejection of grace facets], but only the soul controls 'mind' and
endures after bodily death.
The soul accumulates/chooses own 'surface'
characteristics/identity/tendencies/biases [as distinct from
substantive Godly identity of life/grace facets], and so likely also
has memory of one intensity or another.
As it is likely that the soul is based upon some thread of God Himself,
it is only logical that said soul have natural fulfillment only from
heavenly substance/grace, but is free-willed to choose other options including
If the soul's choices, while within body and growing/defining itself,
included graces/substance, then it has attached itself to heaven or at
least to heavenly affiliates.
If choices did not include substance/graces, then after bodily linkage
is attached to separation-from-God/hell. Lacking
grace/substance/power, the soul's continued existance is only with
consciousness of self and with ability to communicate where made
possible [example: not into heaven], but without ability to alter
anything -- in itself or elsewhere. Such a condition will
probably continue for the duration of the existance of the particular
universe from which it originated, and likely beyond that into
eternity; but as God is such of both heaven and hell, He could choose
[may from beginning have already done so] to alter that scenario in
