Soul, that cryptical description of the essence of what we are that can mean different things to different people.

For example:
Soul:
1) the spiritual or immaterial part of a human being or animal, regarded as immortal.
2) emotional or intellectual energy or intensity revealed in a work of art or an artistic performance.
3) an individual person.

The religious connotation seems to be that the soul is a tangible quantity in that it somehow transfers somewhere or to something when the physical host becomes extinct.

Normal folk will use the word to describe the "X-factor" of an inspiring piece of art or performance, for example.

So, is the "soul" no more than a metaphor?

There is something which individuates a being, and this could be called a soul.

I agree, which would be consistent with the 3rd definition above.
But do you think that the soul is transferable as per the 1st definition?

I don't know if it can exist beyond physical being. I doubt it.

The soul is the core of the person, the one observing the mind, emotions and material body. It can be labeled in many ways but it's the same reality which is consciousness away from the physical body senses and don't say that's not possible when it's been show time and time again throughout every civilization and endless experiences. Being an atheist, and accepting a material ideology and worldview you are trapped by your own perceptions. You will never expand from that until you are willing to cross this bridge son. Your pick.

You haven't made it clear what this bridge happens to be except that it starts at material ideology and indeed your description of the soul transcends no more than the metaphorical which I have no argument with anyway.

That's not even remotely true or even reasonable as there is no evidence of such things, it's all just notions in your head.

Being an atheist, and accepting a material ideology and worldview you are trapped by your own perceptions.

You are trapped in your own delusions.

You will never expand from that until you are willing to cross this bridge son. Your pick.

The bridge is the one back to reality, walk over it some day.

Nothing personal about you, Mad, but robo-user 'tigrin' is mucking everything up by reviving old threads.
