    Re: differences

    Your soul is the eternal part of your being. Spirit is a vaguer term- it can mean soul, or the will and drive people have, ghost and, in Christianity, the Holy Spirit if one of the three aspects of God. A sprite is an elf or pixie-like mythical creature. Spook is a colloquial term for ghost, or a spy. Phantom is basically a ghost, but sometimes used for a specific ghost. -)
