    holistic dualism (Death and the Afterlife, 129). This viewpoint attempts to blend modern scientific and traditional theological beliefs into one comprehensive view of the human soul. In this view, he defines the soul as “the subject of personal consciousness (or personal identity),” the home of one’s mind and will (Death and the Afterlife, 129).

    The mode of consciousness is one’s set of attitudes towards the different aspects of life, which in turn affects how one interacts with his/her internal and external environment. The mode of consciousness is a malleable part of one’s being, due to the many external forces and stressors in the world that act upon one’s life. Behavior is the way one acts or conducts oneself in response to a situation, whether it is biological or not. The relationship between these two attributes of one’s being are
