It's called the soul; it's a very disturbed group energy field that we keep feeding.
Your ideas are interesting but a bit full of fear and fear mongering IMO.
connecting to the 'source' or the ' life force' as I call it .. connects you to all things, to the tapestry of all life.
I have no idea about the mechanics of it all - none of us really do.
I practice compassion. When there is no thought of self there is no one to become and no one to run away from and no 'self' to seek or find.
Meditation in fact is a trap designed by 'the field'.
If compassion is too advanced at this time practice grokking (a few pages back).

We need to love the little monster we created unconditionally; just not listen to it.
But the direction of the causation is two-way not one.

Spirituality and religion are solidified fear. The lonely human 'soul field' created them to keep us locked into reincarnating to service it.
So long as you are deluded into thinking you need a soul; you will reincarnate endlessly to keep toiling away. But as it is a Chinese finger trap, the more you toil over it, the more trapped you become.
What we really are is splendid and requires no construction toil or rebirth.
What I describe is the way to eradicate fear. There is no fear in human maturity.
Teaches that detachment from the things aforementioned is insufficient if we are not detached from our own selves and that this virtue and humility go together. Once we have detached ourselves from the world, and from our kinsfolk, and are cloistered here, in the conditions already described, it must look as if we have done everything and there is nothing left with which we have to contend. But, oh, my sisters, do not feel secure and fall asleep, or you will be like a man who goes to bed quite peacefully, after bolting all his doors for fear of thieves, when the thieves are already in the house. And you know there is no worse thief than one who lives in the house.
We ourselves are always the same; unless we take great care and each of us looks well to it that she renounces her self-will, which is the most important business of all, there will be many things to deprive us of the holy freedom of spirit which our souls seek in order to soar to their Maker unburdened by the leaden weight of the earth.
