A few days ago I heard the statement, ” Some believe that the body is merely the tangible transmitter for the soul.” Never thought of that but the concept is intriguing. Our bodies are fairly useless in the grand scheme of the Cosmos, as we all know. Yet, we are told by theologians that our soul ‘lives on’ after the death of our body.
I’m not too sure of that; I believe it is one of those ‘mysteries’ that the good nuns told us about. Like the Trinity and the Immaculate Conception.
Yet this body/soul concept intrigues me. One of my first thoughts was, What if your body gets a corrupt soul? Is that the cause of corrupt people? Could a defendant pleas “corrupt soul” to a jury? The next question, which should have been my first: Where does the soul come from in the first place? Are they used? Many times before? Or brand new?
A walking, talking soul is a curious thought indeed!
