The intense 'urge for spiritual seeking!
It should be assumed, that every human person experiences many times during his life- time,a burning urge to seek the truth about who is he? This urge shud be treated as the most distinct sign that marks him different from animals !
This 'urge', those who have experienced must be knowing, at times turn so compelling and persistent, that it becomes unbearable ! This suffocating spiritual urge must have pushed many 'sages' and rishis of the past to head for mountains to meditate, seeking knowledge, and deliverance from the pain of knowing the truth. It is very real an urge, many a time, more unbearable than the most intense body urge, that for having sex !
Both the above referred SPIRITS deserve eligibility to be treated as real and distinct ENTITIES, as they are found capable of bringing forth real time changes in their respective HABITATS - - the world for EGO, and the domain of existence beyond the world, for the SOUL. These two spirits, or entities, have the real role in the act of EXPERIENCE - -experience as units of knowledge differs according to who among the above two, that experiences ! This who factor completely alter the very concept of human experience, as it is a new factor that determines the quality, and the genus of experience.
It seems existence has this plan, as Her ploy to achieve the inevitable ‘duality’, for the act of BEING.
This principle necessity of a 'perceiver' for spiritual entities is very evident from the example of human ego.Ego gains its entity by transposing the external world around him as the perceiving 'other'. Ego places itself as an 'object', or an entity before such a third party 'other'. It is similar to the necessity of a canvas for a picture to exist. German philosopher Fichte also had hinted on this phenomenon of Ego making. His concept of inter-subjectivity says one's self-consciousness emerges when he see other individuals around him.

When God becomes man's 'other',replacing the role of 'world', spirituality turns real!
By this logic,the soul also might be needing God as its perceiving,entity giver, in real terms! When ego gains its synthetic entity by transposing external world and its members as the 'other', SOUL is gaining its entity when the source of life,GOD, perceive such spiritual entity in real time.
