Body and Soul

What, if any, is the connection between the body and the soul? Does the soul “dress” within the body? And where does the soul go when the body dies?

To this day, science in particular and humanity in general fail to understand how a spiritual, abstract force can “dress” within a corporeal substance. In the original texts of Kabbalah, the term, “body,” does not relate to the biological body, and the term, “soul,” does not stand for the spirit of life in the physical body. A “body,” in Kabbalah, is the reality that appears before a person through the five physical senses, and the “soul” is the reality that appears to a person through the sixth sense.
