Defined, the soul is a codimensional multidimensional energy field within which is placed our personality. It is an actual piece of the Creator Father and is attached to that portion of the brain we call the subconscious. As Father is the beginning and end of all truth, as He is incapable of an untruth and what He IS is reflected in the very substance of his being, it follows that the soul lacks the capacity to indulge in deception. It is a matter of freewill and conscious choice that permits the individual such poor behaviors yet, when analyzed using Mr. Oates' technique, the truth becomes obvious in as much as the soul lacks the capacity for untruth.
I have personally reviewed Mr. Oates' work and performed my own testings on the subject. It is valid and it does work.
