    I believe that is illogical because the body already existed before it became a soul.

    Not really because the word that is translated as "soul" can also be animal or beast or even body. The Bible says Adam became a "living soul". Before that he was still a soul but had not been brought to life.

    excellent title post

    and sharing your thoughts and dreams with another
    reduces the differences between you

    eventually your spirits are as one

    no difference

    I believe if that is the case then "soul" is an absolutely useless word when describing what lives on after the death of the body. It is also a useless word for describing a living soul unless one uses the adjective "living" before it.

    I believe the Kabbalah is not the Word of God.

    I believe that is fiction. I do believe in mind communication through the spirit and some would call that mind reading. It probably is also possible for a spirit to manipulate a mind that is not its own as well. However the complete dominance of someone else's mind is rare and we often call that possession.

    Star Trek IS fiction....however....

    coupling your mind to another and sharing your thoughts
    breaks down the differences between us

    a perspective shared .....intimately ....
    is far more detailed
    and for all intent (literally).....the same

    reading someone's thought at distance
    as if a book
    is not unusual

    we do it everyday.....right here
