The human soul was found six months ago, and scientists now say they are only scratching the surface with all the information that they have discovered.
Researchers at John Hopkins University took a wildly different approach to medicine, theorizing that a patient’s ‘spiritual’ condition could adversely affect their physical health. Dr. Sung Holl, the lead research on this project said that since their last televised report more has been discovered, and even more questions have been raised.
At that time, Dr. Holl and her team described the human soul as an “organism, like a heart or a lung”, but not fixed in the body. Holl called it “an ever moving entity” that in one case entered an attending physician “forcibly, boil[ing] his insides and then cause[d] him to vomit violently.”
Since then, Holl has made some remarkable discovers.
“We have found a way to measure and detect the soul within a person without having to surgically remove it from an individual. This new method utilizes different forms of lasers and light spectrometers, as well as some very high tech sound wave generators and microphones.”
“Recent leaps in technology have really aided us in our research. And because these ways are less invasive, and do no damage to the ‘soul’, we also have the backing of most religious communities. Not that we need it, but it is nice to have people excited about our work rather than fighting us.”
“What we have discovered is that we can get the ‘soul’ to move within the body, from the stomach, into the head or the leg, with directive lighting and sound. By doing this, we can see different properties of the soul as they effect different parts of the body.”
Referring to what happened to her colleague that was assaulted by the ‘soul’, Holl replied with great sorrow.
“Yes, one of our attending physicians was attacked by the ‘soul’ in our early stages of research. Unfortunately, he did do well after the ‘soul’ left him. It seemed to have done unearthly damage to his internal organs. And that doesn’t answer the questions about, what happens when someone has two souls in their body?”
When asked about her family and friends, even colleges, and their reaction to her research, Holl said this.
“We have run up against some opposition in the sciences. Some think that we are starting from an incorrect or false thesis. They say that whatever ‘spiritual’ condition a patient may have may actually be a mental disorder or a belief that has wired the brain to work in a particular way. In that way, there is nothing to search for or discover. They claim that we have walked past the edge of the neurosciences into a dark hole of theistic blabbering. And yes, that has come from my family and friends as well.”
Even though much as been learned so far, there are many dark roads ahead for Dr. Holl and her team.
“The unknowns, in this case, are so vast and numerous. We don’t even know what we don’t know. It will be years, maybe decades, before we will be done our preliminary research on the human soul.”
