    Do you refer to when you temporarily shut down your account of what?

    No, I refer to when you pretend to be a new user and then delete your own account to create one where you admit who you are the next minute.

    (No, I am referring to withdrawal symptoms when I literally don't debate anyone at all for a while even IRL and elsewhere, it's like a deep desire in me to discuss thoughts on a deep level and explore conflicting ideas).

    What is your soul?.....Is it anything other than a figure of speech?

    Are you not, simply referring to brain processes in relation to other brain processes....Stored and remembered data.

    No, that data isn't the conscious experience that involves using said data.

    How do you actually know?

    I would suggest that spirituality, which is what you are probably inferring, is merely a physiological response to a stimulus, in this case the stimulus is a conscious thought, which itself is a physiological function....All normal internal processes which you  label "soul"....Soul is an simply an utterance which has taken on an emotive quality, that assumes something more than what it actually represents.....Internal data processing with unnecessary bells attached.

    No. You see you have it backwards. What is the entity enabling AND experiencing the sentience that itself enables and experiences the conscious thought?

    That's the soul.

    So the soul is an entity.....How can you actually prove this, and thus elevate your opinion from say so to known fact.

    I would suggest that you generate your soul in the same way that you generate your opinions.

    Notice how you dodged my question to ask your own?

    The answer to your question is god but you first need to answer mine.
