thank you for your message. I am trying to suss out how this forum works (so far I'm getting lost here!), so I will be doing things a bit more manually..!
"it is going to be interesting to find out if souls identify into male/female"
I pondered on the thought, my hope would be that on a soul level all is more unified, male, female, human, animal , plant or any other form of consciousness. That is my phantasy :)
I love your thought about gendered language, I come from Greece and we have female, male AND neutral! One of the traits of our earliest religions was animism, were all was alive, I am wondering (in a totally uneducated, uninformed and unempirical way) whether that informed how language expressed our relationship to the world around us. Or whether older languages tend to be more animistic than later ones. If there is an expert here on linguistics and knows anything about it I would be very curious too.
Thank you for reading the book.
