Sorry, I guess I could have worded that better.
I just think souls are like a body in the sense that it's a energy-construct that the mind inhabits. It's something used to interact with the
environment we happen to be in, whether it's some kind of afterlife environment or the normal world during an OBE, similar to the way we inhabit our
physical bodies and use it to interact with this world.
I have no idea whether Kev's entirely right in the sense that we create them for other minds to inhabit or not, but if it's true then I think we must
shape something like a tulpa with a similar function as needed, generally in the form we're most comfortable with, as it seems most people look like
themselves while experiencing other states of being.
I'm only familiar with lucid dreaming, but I think sometimes we have OBE's without being conscious of it. One time my wife woke up and saw me walkng
out of the bedroom, then rolled over and bumped into my body and freaked herself out a bit, so the dividing line between states of being must be
pretty thin regardless.
Also, while lucid dreaming I know it's possible to reshape the form you wear into something else or shed it entirely and become a conscious point of
awareness, whatever that's worth. Perhaps that just means that the "soul" is more malleable than most people might believe, though.
