The soul isn't specifically a religious concept but non-religious people fear the word. Some people take it to simply be your uniqueness, your consciousness and your individuality and sense of self or the feeling of existence. I think therefore I am.

If the sense of self has a scientific "body" and is made of something I don't think we've discovered it. I have a hard time believing the increasingly popular view that our brains create the illusion of a consciousness and it's really nothing outside of electrical impulses. That doesn't make sense to me and I don't see how something like this could exist but be an illusion of sorts.
