What is the Scriptural evidence that there exists an immaterial soul / spirit "component" to the human person that has the specific property of carrying, bearing, or otherwise containing the attribute of consciousness? I do not believe there is any such evidence. And it is important to not simply appeal to some vague "definition" that is not demonstrably rooted in Scripture. It is indeed conceptually possible that a soul / spirit exists that does not bear consciousness, and that consciousness is an emergent property that arises when such a soul / spirit is integrated with a body. So please, if you have arguments (that do not illicitly assume the very conclusion you are trying to justify), please provide them.
