Jennifer, thank you for that lovely poem- it so well describes the journey!
Such interesting questions you ask! As I see it, the indwelling entity as you call it gives life/existence to everything and soul is a name for that spark of life which has apparently separated itself from everything, becoming something other. So- does AI have soul too?? It would require AI to be conscious entities, for soul is self-awareness. Even inanimate objects have soul, but it is dormant, with minimum self-awareness. Are AI there too already or is their mimicking of human awareness leading to actual self-awareness of Existence in AI form?
Fun question to ponder! 🙂
