What exactly makes up a soul?

Do we have souls at all ? If not then what ? <_<
Im interested in all opinions . With the many ways we see things comes the joy of learning from one another.

Well, I'm not sure we have a "soul", but then, not knowing what a soul is made of makes it hard to answer this question.
Could it be a part of our consciousness?

I work in a nursing home and I've seen quite a few of our residents soon after they've died. I agree with Moonchild: The soul is that essence of life that resides in our physical bodies until we die. It animates us.
I certainly believe that the soul passes to another plane of existence after death. Scientific or not, it offers hope that life, indeed, goes on after we die.
Glad to be part of the website!

what if the new souls (if at all) are part of the energy that gets seperated from a unified source? That which also explains the GOD as the Supreme Power. Just like the sun has it's energy getting dissipated as flares and things, what if the soul is actually part of this great source of energy? That also can explain all the religious belief's and doctrines. Which also explains and justifies the law of Karma. Because when this part-energy gets unbalanced with Karmic cycle, it cannot join back onto the original source untill the balance is restored.
If energy can neither be created nor destroyed, where do the new souls come from?

Its absoutly an interesting question . I think alot of answers are based upon belief and social upbringing .
It must be some sort of energy.
It was Albert who said energy cant not be destroyed . It can only change form .

Of course, I don't have the answer...just an idea. Maybe a lot of those souls who had passed (many ages ago) have held back in reincarnating until now. Who knows how many souls have been in storage (so to speak) for eons. Maybe now is the time, the right time, to come back and complete their destiny. Just a thought!
I believe that our souls are simply energy. Unfortunately though, that raises another question. If energy can neither be created nor destroyed, where do the new souls come from? Our population is ever growing. If you believe in reincarnation, that would explain some of the souls, but what about all of the rest?
Also, as our original soul manifested from somewhere...someplace...new souls are being created. Maybe there is a Soul-Factory out there. The whole concept is mind-boggling.

There is also the possibility that these energies are not only bound to the everexpanding universe of this realm but can come from other realms also.
Good point MoonChild. I guess I was just looking at the energy on Earth must remain on Earth. I wasn't looking broad enough at the point that the whole universe has energy which travels from point to point.

It's outlined here http://www.snopes.co.../soulweight.asp
Further interesting trivia....this is where the recent film "21 Grams" starring Benicio Del Toro, Sean Penn and Naomi Watts got it's title from.
