  1. The English word spirit (from Latin spiritus"breath") has many differing meanings and connotations, all of them relating to a non-corporeal substance contrasted with the material body. The spirit of a human being is thus the animating, sensitive or vital principle in that individual, similar to the soul taken to be the seat of the mental, intellectual and emotional powers. The notions of a person's "spirit" and "soul" often also overlap, as both contrast with body and both are imagined as surviving the bodily death in religion and occultism,and "spirit" can also have the sense of "ghost", i.e. manifestations of the spirit of a deceased person.

    The spirit, in many religions, spiritual traditions, and philosophies, is the eternal part of a living being, commonly held to be separable in existence from the body; distinct from the physical part. It is typically thought to consist of ones consciousness and personality, and can be synonymous with the soul, mind or self. The soul is believed to live on after the person’s physical death.

    The terms soul and spirit are often used interchangeably, although the latter may be viewed as a more worldly and less transcendent aspect of a person than the former. The term may also refer to any being imagined as incorporeal or immaterial, such as Beings, demons or deities.

    Essence endures within a being beyond the accidental. In philosophy, essence is the attribute or set of attributes that make an object or substance what it fundamentally is, and which it has by necessity, and without which it loses its identity. Essence is contrasted with accident: a property that the object or substance has contingently, without which the substance can still retain its identity. The concept originates with Aristotle, who used the Greek expression to tiêneinai, literally 'the what it was to be', or sometimes the shorter phrase to tiesti, literally 'the what it is,' for the same idea. This phrase presented such difficulties for his Latin translators that they coined the word essential (English "essence") to represent the whole expression. For Aristotle and his scholastic followers the notion of essence is closely linked to that of definition (horismos). Dead people are usually believed to go to a specific plane of existence after death (other than eternal oblivion), typically believed to be determined by a god, based on their actions during physical life. In contrast, the term afterlife refers to another life in which only the "essence" of the being is preserved, and "reincarnation" is another life on Earth or possibly within the same universe.
