I can see how people may interpret this as coming from outside of their body. In my view, that's just a delusion. I think it's a common delusion, and exists because people can't rationally explain it...

The "soul" is our word for the output of the electrochemical chain reaction that happens in our body from the moment of conception to the moment we die. If we use cars as an analogy, the "soul" of a car is the running engine. When the car runs out of fuel, the engine stops. The car's "soul" appears to have left the car, but all the components of the car are still there, it's just out of gas.
The soul is a religious concept born out of ignorance of physiology.
