... well what is a soul my dear friend? What if something doesn't have feelings or is not a living being? Do not our emotion sometimes give objects human-like traits or even, for example in a children's game, in or mind become living beings with souls? Aren't the characters we and other people create sometimes more alive then ourselves even trough they are nothing but pixels arranged in abstract symbols on our monitors?
(I could be a politician or at least write speeches with my skills don't you think?)
