Right.. this isn't going anywhere. I see, a lot of discussions here on SF.. sometimes I participate, others times not.. and people don't just disagree but nitpick, and straw man over and over again. I honestly think most of this wouldn't be there at all if we all talked about it in person, when facial cues tell us more, and we all share a drink. This form of communication isn't ingrained into our being, it's just words on a page.. but words can be interpreted in many ways..

It depends on what we see as 'spiritual'. I'd say our subtle/astral body isn't the 'spirit', as it's a 'form' and therefore changing, so strictly speaking, I could view it as not spiritual. Alternatively we could state everything is 'ensouled' which would make everything already spiritual. It's a question of perception, and of dualism/pantheism/panentheism..
