I see the soul or spirit as energy that gives animation to people.
Cells in our body make the energy They have evolved to do this over billions of years and are still doing this in every generation since our homo sapiens-sapiens or whatever one wants to call it, human species became a part of life. If you do not believe this, why is that? Why do you need to add some mystical aspect to it? Are you dissatisfied with life? All of us have areas which we would like to have been better, but all the experiences we have had have formed our character from the basic nature and DNA etc we were born with. We have one life only and then die. I don't know when mine is going to end, but bovine tissue replacement aortic valves have an average of 8-10 years, and I've had 6 already. So I do my best to enjoy every day.

Without it we are just dead material.
But there isn't an 'it' as such, is there. Every part of us needs the whole system. We can live with a variety of parts being removed, but when the brain dies, the person is dead.

Accidents, disease, and old age damage or wear out the body so that it can no longer function appropriately leaving the soul with no ability to animate people so we die. Part of who we are goes with it as the brain contains certain elements of personality.
What happens to a body when it is dead has been well known always. People can imagine that some *spirit* somehow leaves the body, but that is because we have good imaginations, not because it actually happens. That is delusion.
