The Ensouling of Community and the Emergent Spirit of Society, Joe Corbett

The Ensouling of Community and the Emergent Spirit of Society, Joe Corbett | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

In my article on The Post-metaphysical Meaning of Soul and Spirit, I claim that soul, following a literal interpretation of the AQAL model as a map of the Great Chain of Being, is not an ethereal ghost or subtle body of the individual, like some personal immortal self assigned to each and every person relative to their unique conscious perspective and karmic footprint, something like the spiritual equivalent of Einsteinian relativity. Instead, soul is a nonlocal collective entity of cultural entanglement and shared inter-subjectivity, more like the participative consciousness of quantum theory. What many believe to be their soul is actually their mind, creatively imagined and experienced in altered states of consciousness, whereas the soul is strictly a collective phenomenon of empathic bonding between people and whatever lasting traces come from that, with love and compassion being among its highest expressions, in the lower-left quadrant.
