If it helps, comparing the soul to a diamond is a good way of thinking of it. It is a simple and very hard rock that is indivisible, just like a soul. however, still very complex with many different sides and aspects.
Ah, so you agree with Plato then? That a soul is identified by reason, spirit, and desire.
Yes, one of my favorite philosophers! He argued that learning is actually a matter of recalling what our souls perceived in the world of the form.
What does he mean by form?
Well, see this dog? When we see it for the first time how do we know its a dog? it may not bear any resemblance to a dog we`ve seen before, yet we instinctively know that it`s still a dog.
Wow. defiantly an interesting way to prove souls are real. Thanks Dave!
