Information technology may offer a useful metaphor in examining the question of life after death. If your mind and body is a "computer," perhaps your soul could be a "website" that is stored in a "cloud" outside your physical being.

Conceivably, some people have souls in the "cloud" but in other people, the soul stays in the body and perishes at death. It would be the difference between being "saved" and not being "saved." Or perhaps everyone starts with the soul in the body, but the soul only goes to the "cloud" if the person has some kind of transcendental experience. Thus, if you are preoccupied with the material world and physical pleasures, you will never reach the "cloud."
