Can we see the soul with eyes? or, Is it only understood by knowledge?

Ans.) Veda says that the soul should be seen (Drashtavyah). In Gita it is said that ordinary people cannot see the soul but Scholars with knowledge can see the soul (Pasyanti Jnana Chakshushah). All this means that you can see the soul with the help of the analysis. In the olden days there were no scientific instruments and therefore it means that the soul is imaginable but invisible. By this you should not say that the soul is God because God is both invisible and unimaginable. But today through electronic instruments you can see the soul as basic inert energy. Exactly the soul is a special form of work done by the inert energy in the nervous system. Work is invisible. If you take the soul as work it is invisible but imaginable. If you take the soul as inert energy you can even see it through instrumets. In any case the soul is not God because God is both invisible and unimaginable.
