Well, I cannot provide evidence to any of this, but I have my beliefs on it.
I think that the electromagnetic signature of living organisms is what we recognize as the mind...well, part of it anyway. It is the part of our mind
that extends beyond our nervous system. I believe the mind to be a connection between the body and the soul. It interacts via the entire nervous
system (not just the brain) and is essentially the software on the human (or dog, cat, earthworm) computer.
The soul is a bit more ethereal (pun intended). It would be the user sitting at the computer manipulating things. Through various events, the user
can leave the computer, leaving the software running, but performing in a very scripted, somewhat predictable manner.
The body is the hardware of the computer. It does the work and interacts with it's environment. It is useless without a mind, although it can
"run" to some extent without one. It can also be directly affected by the soul, although to a minimal effect.
