"A friend is a single soul dwelling in two bodies." Aristotle

What happens when this "single soul" decides to leave?  Do we then have two souls dwelling in two bodies?  Or is the one soul split forever between the same two bodies?  Maybe Aristotle knows the answer.  Heaven knows, I sure don't!  When I lost a really special friend, I believe this person took part of our single soul with them as mine does not feel the same as it once did when they were in my life.  Just wondering about this one - have you got any answers?  I feel like you are a tremendously deep person with a mind to match.  Have you ever given any true thought to this quote from Aristotle or am I just too curious for my own good? Just sitting here in front of my computer thinking . . . . . . Rain.

Rain, you bring up a point that confounds both the scientific and the religious worlds.  Apart from my empathy at your loss, let me say that most agree the soul exists on a non-physical plane and is not subject to our physical rules.  Therefore, a spirit or soul can exist many places at many times, yet we'll never comprehend it until we're rid of our physical limitations.  I'm so thrilled you took the time to examine this so closely - keep exercising that curious brain!  Cathy

Loved all the quotes. Especially the one about the Atheist being someone who probably believes in God but doesn't like him. I've had my own days of shouting protest toward a being I considered cruel for leaving me deaf after all I've been dealt in life. Yet I wonder.......I discovered the beauty of my own spirit through my deafness and all the pain I survived left me a better human being....(Hugs) Indigo
