What Are 'Souls'?

What is a 'soul'? For as long as I can remember I have wondered what a soul is.

Google defines a soul as: "The spiritual or immaterial part of a human being or animal, regarded as immortal."
This is something along the lines of what most people think, and what I think. There is nothing wrong with this definition. But what IS the spiritual or immaterial part of a human being or animal? Is it electricity? Electromagnetic waves? Heat? So-called 'Energy' of whatever form?

So, What is a Soul?
Google defines information as: "What is conveyed or represented by a particular arrangement or sequence of things." So, a rock, for instance, could have information in the form of 'what-elements-are-where-and-what-are-their-charges-and-bonds' for example.

Souls (I think) are places with a high concentration of changing information. Things like brains, computers, plants, ocean waves, cell phones are some examples of things with changing information.
Souls have 'consciousness'.

When you are unconscious or in a coma, less information is changing in your brain, so your soul becomes more diffused around you instead of concentrated in your brain as it usually is. This is why you are Unconscious when you are in a coma. This is also the case when you are asleep, but less so.

Why  it is cool
I think that this is cool because it means that you aren't really "You", in a manner of speaking, "You" is just a high density of information in your brain. When you die, the information spreads out and goes into other people and objects.

This also means that when you are close to people (and animals, computers, etc.) and sharing information with them you share souls in a way.

Like a lot of other things on this blog, this might not actually be true, seeing as I just thought of it when I was bored today. I am not an expert on any of this stuff, especially not souls!
