There are at least four of us here. Yes

Does it reside in the brain? How about people in persistent vegetative states? Alive, but no spirits?

Does it reside in the heart? How about people with heart transplants? Spirits in the wrong bodies?

And don't get me started on souls.

Why do you ask, when the answer you want is a scientific article in the Nature magazine?
Your questions are technical and I can easily answer them, but I don't know if you really care about the answers. Are you willing to suffer imperfect or incomplete answers, to acquaint yourself with present state of evidence whatever it is? Are you willing to study the subject out of curiosity and make up your own mind? Or do you just want an assurance that somebody, somewhere has a solid evidence in which you can trust without really knowing it? More so, do you just want to shut up those who are dangerously irrational, that is, going ahead without tangible evidence?

Read The Soul and its Mechanism by Alice A. Bailey. It's a coherent theory that sensibly answers your questions. If you mean your questions seriously, that is.

It's complete and utter bullshit. I've seen enough PET scans, and MRIs to know there ain't no woo there. You have not a shred of evidence, and neither does anyone else.
It's total crap. Present your evidence IN TOTAL, (which you *claim* you can "easily do"), or STFU.

I thought this was a thread on the Patriots.

Luminon, help me out. Please quote from the source you provided, answering the questions I posed. When I looked through the link, I saw no answers.

'EvolutionKills' - sorry, your REALLY late in this thread - see page 1 Drinking Beverage

We have already had the first most complete authoritative, empirically based and rational definition of Spirit. The discussion didn't last long - except some people argued why I left vodka out. Vodka are unbelievers whilst the Jinns are believers.

(In Islamic theology jinn are said to be creatures with free will, made from smokeless fire by Allah) - obviously !

A wise man proportions his belief to the evidence -
