The ancient greeks would study a dead human body (that died of 'natural causes') and did not see anything different from the connections in the dead body (all bones, veins, organs) and a living body - everything was in tact. No bumps or bruises or parts missing. So what was the difference between the dead an living? That's what they call the soul. What happened to the soul, that which makes the dead body live, after death was up to debate. But the existence of the soul was simply obvious. Simply because it exists doesn't necessarily mean that it exists beyond your body.
A soul is immortal and survives past the death of an individual host. It has a memory of all the sins and virtues ever acted upon. It is undetectable as it doesn't reside on our plane of existence (matter and force). It resides above the plane of thought.
Could this other plane of existence or parallel Universe be our "Heaven" if our soul passes specifications?
