a 'soul' is nothing material or spiritual... any more than One's own 'conscience' is...
that inner dialogue, we sometimes manifest to see just which moral or ethical direction we will take in the problematic situation before us.
the soul or conscience, is the mentally constructed 'envelope' which
surrounds the impulses we get from our reptilian part of out brain structure, [the LIMBIC REGION]
where our baser drives, instinctual actions, emotions like 'Passion' are generated.
the soul-conscience is our self's governor to help regulate our social interactions so that we do not become a parriah or an outcast from the larger
thence a 'soul' was deemed an abstract/ & spiritual thing
by the religious overlords
soul is illusion, an abstract concept, describing the inate self-regulation we have as individuals in the social group... unless one suffers the curse
of being a sociopath, then their 'soul is evil'
