For those who know a bit about physics: there is 4 forces that make the universe possible: electromagnetism, gravity, strong and weak force. However, before these qualities were really "discovered" or defined, it was suspected that something like a soul existed. In modern terms this would be called an "Animating Principle" a quality that makes life possible. However, there is evidence out there that such a thing as an animating principle is not something to rule out. If one day something like the animating principle is discovered and defined it would radically change our perspective on reality. I for suspect it will create a new wave of illumationist thinking and ideas (lol what a high brow joke).
