So God created man to be able to "touch" these three realms ...[text shortened]... ation free from [b]"the bondage of corruption".[/b]
Edit: "The body of man interacts with the physical universe."
Methinks BodyMind in unison interacts with the physical universe: you see a track speeding up and coming towards you, you evaluate the conditions and you act accordingly.
Edit: "The soul of man interacts with the psychological world of other minds."
Perception and awareness, and thus our interaction with the physical world that surrounds us and with our inner world, is an occurrence that is happening on the basis of the brain and the nervous system. Our inner world is evaluated by the mind. What exactly is the “psychological world of other minds” other than the inner world of the individuals with whom we interact? And what epistemic instruments did you use which eased you to conclude that soul is an epistemic object and, furthermore, real?
Edit: "The spirit of man substantiates the spiritual world."
The world of the ideas occurs out of the interaction of our BodyMind with both the physical world and our inner world. When we see, hear, think, taste, touch, smell something we can describe the occurrence biochemically or electrochemically, and also we can describe it subjectively. During perception and emotionally feeling something, we have an experience from moment to moment. And this experience has contents. A content of the mind is the world of the ideas too. It’s needless to be obsessed with the contents of our experience, however the experiential side of the experience is essential. So what exactly is spirit?
