Based on your logic there are chemical compounds which make a soul or spirit.
.but let's not be ignorant here.

I think pictures of our aura and soul have been imaged using something called Kirlian imaging.

We are multidensional beings trapped in a body of flesh. The body is the interface we use to experience this dimension. The interface can break down such as in neurons not firing correctly and cause us to loose control. Likewise, there are many cases of people in state of no brain activity at all and yet had experiences in another realm.

I have experienced it with my own eyes.
A person's personality can dissolve as they get dementia.
I just watched a documentary on it.
Having been lively people previously - after dementia sets in, some of these people wander around aimlessly, walking out of the house, getting lost, and sometimes becoming bedridden, losing the ability for conversation. Sometimes they will forget their name or where they come from.
So I was thinking, here was a person with a particular personality and character, and after getting dementia became very different from the person he was previously. His entire personality, along with his memories was determined by the structure of his brain.
So if personality is determined by the physical structure of the brain, what is left for the soul to determine?

The body with it's neural connections is requiered to function in 4D space-time - it's the vessel. I believe we all lose our earthly abilities some amount of time before we die. Sometimes it's just tragically prolonged. What's left? Who knows, people have been born with memories from another lifetime for example. Computers can transfer data between machines. What says information couldn't be transferred from gray matter to another cosmic storage? Non local phenomena..

That's an interesting concept.
I had this same discussion with a friend and he mentioned something similar.
He said the spirit is non-local and exists in another dimension.
It interfaces with the body and influences, or takes control of it. He said when the body breaks down with old age, it cannot interface with it any longer.
So where did this idea originate for you?
So some questions I had were:
Do all beings require a spirit to animate it?
What happens when millions of bee's or ants are born? Likewise millions of people? Does each one require a spirit to animate it? Where do all those millions and billions of spirits come from? What were they doing prior to dwelling in a being?
Your reply reminds me of the 'scientists' and 'physicians' of the dark ages. They thought germs were hokum because they couldn't see the actual germ. Even though the effects were right in front of them, they said germs didn't exist. It wasn't until much later that we had the technology to be able to see germs. But the germs were there the whole time, seen or not.
