The animating principal of the individual, the astral body  That part of the individual which survives death and lives on into the afterworld. Not to be confused with "Spirit"

The soul contains all memories, feelings, programs, associations, emotional associations, etc. The soul survives death and continues its existence in the astral world.

Mormon prophet Joseph Smith Jr. was speaking of the soul when he said, "There is no such thing as immaterial matter. All spirit is matter, but it is more fine or pure, and can only be discerned by purer eyes."
