C.S. Lewis would respond to people who talked about having a soul this way:
“You don’t have a soul.”
Which I imagine would cause them to be taken aback somewhat. Then he would finish his thought this way:
“You do not have a soul……..you ARE a soul.”
Pause for impact….
“What you have is a body.”
Einstein the great scientist had an interesting way to describe human beings. He knew that matter and energy was really the same thing, just in different forms and locations. The concept of a solid object is a human one, not reality. Within our bodies are molecules, billions of them, and within them are atoms and within atoms are protons, neutrons and electrons orbiting the center. There is a great amount of space within atoms. The concept of something being really solid is false.And since matter is just another form of energy, this is why Einstein called the human body “congealed energy.” We are just energy stuck together really tight.
Somehow I see a connection between what C.S. Lewis said and what Einstein said.
Just something to think about.
