The soul is a basic concept in Christianity. It is a something that survives after death, so the body is not a part of the Christian soul. It is something that is permanent and goes on forever, for all eternity. Christians regard it as something real.
Buddhism, on the other hand, regards the soul as an illusion. I tend toward the Buddhist position, but am interested in the Christian position.
In any case, I see it as an interesting question to explore. I see two ways to explore it. The first is abstractly, impersonally. The second is very personal and individual. Then the question becomes "What is my soul?"
I plan to try to explore the question both ways, to go into the specifics and details of either question. Let the exploration begin!
