    erm, it have nothing to do with satanic.
    in science, souls is just a form of energy.
    and human is just a case that contain energy

    hime>> not if you see things in a religious point of view, i suppose especially in a christian sense.


    faust>> i'd hate for anything to happen to my boys. ToT apart from the fact that they cost a shit-ton of money, i really love them, and it'd likely break my heart to have them hurt/destroyed/ZOMGWTFBARBEQUED!!! um...yeah. XDDD

    i'd prioritize during an emergency but if i can help it, my boys (as many as i can grab, anyway, along with lappy, passports and my wallet--assuming the family is able and functional) are coming with me.

    I totally agree. When I was young, my grandma use to tell us about ghost, hell, god, ancestor, her personal experience & etc.. To make thing worst we got an aunt who is sensitive and will say thing out of the blue <-- really freak us out

    Just last week my Grandma was telling me about the "Good brothers". <-- I was mummuring to myself " oh great timing~"

    *eerie* That why I keep a distance from reading/watch ghost stories

    And in regard to the question to this thread. My answer is no. Though i really wish he can talks to me... but not in the sense of spiritual stuff but artifical intelligence like George from science centre or Yumel doll from Japan.

    [QUOTE=FaustVIII;2403453]i don't think they have souls on their own. :/ that would make them rather satanic, wouldn't it? i believe that they are what they are - material objects - and that it is the owner's photography and the backstories/personalities invested into the dolls that make the dolls look and feel alive, that is, that they "have a soul". in some cases, i do believe that it's the owner's personality itself that is being reflected through the doll... so perhaps then it can be argued that the doll 'has a soul', albeit that of the owner living vicariously through their doll.

    nonetheless, i still maintain that however 'alive' they may look - it is all a human construct, imposed onto the doll by the owner. so considering that a 'soul' is something metaphysical and perhaps even mystical - no, the dolls don't have souls.
    QUOTE]

    i totally agree with this.

    To me i feel that a doll is "pretty alive" if alot of backstories, personality has been put into them. Even sometimes our speeches sounds quite silly like for eg. "Oh he doesn't want to stand cause he hates me. " or like " he seems quite angry today. maybe because he's in a dress" though in truth we do know that, it's just our minds thats saying that.

    A doll is a doll. however i do love my dolls so to me they'll be "alive" in my eyes.

    Somehow i can tell the difference between a Dollfie Collector and a dollfie lover. I find that, Dollfie Collectors Dolls are just dolls. Ornaments, decoration..that sort of thing..so rather dead. While compared to owners who love to photograph them, do photostories and somehow input personalities and such , have a little more life and presence..not in a paranormal way though.

    X_X i hope i don't confuse anyone.

    The Japanese have a belief that anything that is humanoid-shaped (Dolls, kigurumis, the dreaded biology lab's Human Anatomy model... etc) will develop their own soul as we interact with them in our daily lives, treating them as though they were real human beings. That is why the Japanese actually do ritual services for the kigurumi costumes used for stage shows when they're gonna be disposed of, to send any potential souls formed on a proper passage to the afterlife.

    lol. i think kyoru has the most detailed points.
    and actually answered the questions in my mind.

    YC Tan, i also thinks that anithing thats humanoid-shaped/shaped with eyes, ears, nose, mouth, face, body and limbs have a soul in them.
    according to my research of supernatural, all of them have mentioned the same thing, especially the eye part,
    "once the pupil/iris/eye is drawn, it will have a soul"

    well yes dolls are love. but to collectors they are display items. and this is reality. A collecter's mindset is much different.

    Question is, (referring to all) How obsess are you to actually think that your doll have souls?

    because of the love we put in to our dolls we often think of them more than just a doll.

    Thats what i think~

    Anyway i heard from my grandma that if you play too much with your doll and treat it like your own kid or something, (treat it like a real human) it'll have a soul. Either that or it'll take your soul away...haha tho i don't actually take her advice on that.. XD *likes to play with her doll alot*
