A soul can belong only to one person; not to two people. One can take poetic license to say that two people reside in one soul, but it is utter rubbish, on a realistic level. When it comes to the spiritual realm, it is better to permit the experts to deal with it, than attempt at silly statements which make one look foolish in the public eye.Shame on you

moniquester:

She has clearly said the substance of their souls are made of the same stuff, not that they have the same soul. Her statement might also be interpreted to be a claim of female equality.

As far as "leaving it to the experts", I want no part of that. The "experts" have given us the Spanish inquisition, witch burnings, the crusades, and all manner of other truely evil acts trumped up as excuses to achieve personal and political goals.

Is that maybe the root of this strange sole soul mate obsession in many countries?

Emily Bronte was trying to succeed in a 'man's world.' Her book, Wuthering Heights, shows that she manifestly achieved that. I agree with Mythman's post. .. but I also think that Moni had a temporary blind spot which in no way reflects on his/her intelligence.

The stuff from which our soul and soul of our soulmate made of may be the same, but that don't mean that we have one. And though it's tragic - even be together...

It leaves those defenseless who are different. They are the same, no need to separate.

Same body, but not the same soul.

Is it scientifically proven or just myth?

From: "Wuthering Heights" - Emily Bronte
Chapter IX
Chaterine To Nelly

'If I were in heaven, Nelly, I should be extremely miserable.'

'Because you are not fit to go there,' I answered. 'All sinners would be miserable in heaven.'

'But it is not for that. I dreamt once that I was there.'

'I tell you I won't hearken to your dreams, Miss Catherine! I'll go to bed,' I interrupted again.

She laughed, and held me down; for I made a motion to leave my chair.

'This is nothing,' cried she: 'I was only going to say that heaven did not seem to be my home; and I broke my heart with weeping to come back to earth; and the angels were so angry that they flung me out into the middle of the heath on the top of Wuthering Heights; where I woke sobbing for joy. That will do to explain my secret, as well as the other. I've no more business to marry Edgar Linton than I have to be in heaven; and if the wicked man in there had not brought Heathcliff so low, I shouldn't have thought of it. It would degrade me to marry Heathcliff now; so he shall never know how I love him: and that, not because he's handsome, Nelly, but because he's more myself than I am. Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same; and Linton's is as different as a moonbeam from lightning, or frost from fire.'

So, in fact, love is a kind of friendship. One makes a best friend. Perfection doesn't exist.

All the souls belong to 'the one'. For the same reason, all the souls are same, though they appeared to be different.

The soul is a non material...thing, of unknown substance, no less real than things we can see.
