Is there any evidence for #5 in Short Circuit gaining a soul? As far as i can recall, he gains a functional AI. There's no mention of souls in the movie, at all.

I wonder how would a body act if it had no soul? Would it only act to fulfill biological needs? Would it even talk or show any form of emotion? Or would it just go into a coma? Or...something else?

"The trope name is entirely self-explanatory. What? What are you laughing at?" Could somebody explain this one to me?

"In Nerh�n, as stated in the preface, 'Soul' is treated like a form of energy like heat or light, that can be transferred and controlled, and that is the basis for the series' magic system. "

The accent mark in "Nerh?n" is irretrievably broken, and I can't find any likely candidates by searching with any unaccented vowel in its place and stuff like 'soul energy'. Anyone know what it is?

"Now we know that what we call thinking goes on in our brains, which is something that dies and decomposes along with the rest of the body when it reaches the end of the life that was given to it, but this idea seems difficult to comprehend - not to mention unattractive - to us who are the ones in the pilot seat, so the loss of our mind is an event comparable to the end of the entire universe from a "

We know nothing of the kind. What we know is that there are electric impulses in the brain at roughly the same time as we happen to be thinking. No test could possibly find out if any outside source claimed to be immaterial caused said impulses because such tests by definition only test the material. The only thing we can possibly know is that we don't know. Which we already knew thousands of years ago.

Except science apparently has messed around with the brains of humans to cause thoughts. Sure we don't KNOW, but we bloody well can guess.

Can we just say it's an open question that's probably impossible to fully answer and leave it at that?

What about a cosmology with a mortal soul that's not separated (essentially, NOT a swirly ghosty thingie) from the body, like the Seventh-Day Adventists, Jenovah's Witnesses and some Jews?

How it affects classic soul tropes?
