Seems to me you are all searching for the truth, when it is right under your nose.
Who knows our frame, our makeup, except the One who created us, who reveals it through His Word.
Do you want to know about soul, life, death, the past, the present, and the future? Then study the Scriptures.
Adam (and all humans) each are a living soul.
A separate "soul" was not joined to a prepared body. "God breathed the spirit of the breath of life into the formed body and he became a living soul." Gen.2:7.
Study all the verses regarding soul, and you
will gain a clearer understanding.
You will find soul is the consciousness, the feelings, the desires produced by the breath
of life vitalizing the body.
Animals are soul creatures because they can move independently and have blood. See Gen. 1:20,21,24,30; 2:19; 9:3,4,8-10, and 12, etc.
Many times man is called a "soul" in the scriptures. Even today we hear the expression, "Oh, that poor soul."
Gen.12:5...Abram took his wife...and the souls they had gotten in Haran.
Acts 2:41...and the same day there were added unto them, about three thousand souls.
Acts 2:43...And fear came upon every soul..
Is the soul said to die or be killed?
Of course. Here are a few verses:
Num.23:10.."Let my soul die the death of the righteous."
Josh.11:11.."They smite all the souls that were therein with the edge of the sword, utterly destroying them."
Judges 16:30.."And Sampson said, let my soul die with the Philistines."
Often the translators use "life" for "soul".
The RSV, and perhaps other translations, use
"being" instead of "soul", thus, "man became a living being."
