    I used to always wonder where the soul was found in a person. Have you? If I would have to guess. I would say that it resides in the brain. Your thoughts? Blessings..

    Ok this is probably a really bad analogy but here's my own crazy thoughts on the subject:

    Where does a song like "Jingle Bells" exist? It exists in my head, it exists in yours, in the past and in the future. My soul is my song, your soul is your song, yet nobody owns that song, it exists within you, but it exists elsewhere too.

    Look on a map, it lives 47 miles North of Neverland and 15 west of Oz in a thatched cottage next door to Santa Claus and World Peace.

    I always assumed the soul resided in the heart, but that is in the sense that that is where love and emotions reside also, so I guess my assumption is quite pointless(I am quite aware that such things reside in the brain btw, but it can be a bit hard to break from such simplistic childhood teachings sometimes).

    I actually wonder more if the soul even exists, as there is no physical evidence of it, and (if I am correct) it is a religious concept. Seeing as our brain contains everything that makes us human, I see no need for one. Perhaps someone could enlighten me?

    There is no soul in my opinion,but having said that the word soul is a very broad term and it would be hard to find agreement as to a definition of what a soul is within any group of people so I'm sure u'll get many different answers to ur question as u have people on this board...but to answer ur question i would say there is no place where the soul resides as there is no such thing as a soul...

    When I still believed (wish I still did) in the concept of a soul I assumed it was sort of a mirror image of yourself occupying your entire body. That is the way people existing in the afterlife look in movies and how people describe ghosts they have seen haunting a building.

    If the soul is in the mind, does it remain after a person's mind is incapacitated by trauma or disease and is no longer distinguishing that person from soulless animals like lower primates?

    I believe it is in the brain because the brain is what makes everything work. Also the way science explains what happens when we think also proves it to me as well. In my faith, when we die we go to sleep. Everything shuts off until the return of the Messiah Yahshua for the saints and after for the rest of humanity. I am aware others do not share my belief but this is what I do. This is another reason why I believe. Also the heart is explained in my faith to be where all the fleshly wicked desires come from. So I do not believe it is in there, but to each their own. Blessings..

    Did you know that ancient physicians believed it resided under the tongue? Yes, these old medics would look in the mouth of one who just died and look under the tongue to see if it was still there or if it had flown to the heavens.

    Me, I believe my sole is beneath my feet.

    I think the soul resides in brussel sprouts. When you eat them at christmas determines who dies for the whole of next year.

    Damn those evil sprouts

    The soul is part of our astral bodies like the whole chakra system, which is why there is no scientific proof of it. They still exist though. :smile:

    I don't have a soul anymore. I once sneezed and no one was there to say god bless you. So my soul was lost forever. :(
