Actually my comment was facetious in that without the use of a sole aquifer no one would have any soul because we cannot survive without water for more than a few days. I don't think innanimate objects have souls.

It is a purely human concept which some of us, at times, transfer onto other animals or even inanimate objects -- or physical properties such as space. That said, I assume you are inferring something with a soul is denying you potable water from the aquifer. This begins to infer morality, and my sense is that the US Army is a pretty secular institution when it comes to morality; the flag and the 50s clause in the Pledge of Allegiance notwithstanding. Of course, this begins to get into the discussion of the old and new testament gods....but outside of pretty much everyone agreeing that it is the same thing that made us and the water and the soil and rocks that the water goes through and as such we are molecularly linked...well I guess an extrapolation would be that an injury to one is an injury to all....But I still don't think that aquifers have souls. Though I am, in fact, beginning to think that water is pissed off at us. We have had maybe five days with sunshine this year thus far. We do not live in Seattle, this is DC for criminey sakes. It's mid-June and we are still having the Maine mud season. I have a fifty foot steel trawler on the Chesapeake that has rust to be sanded, the metal primed and painted (imagine what its like down at the James River Reserve Fleet -- those vessels aren't even painted -- bottom or hull). But till it stops raining I can't. So I think maybe the rain is mad at us, but I'm not sure that infers soul. Maybe somebody else in the listserve can answer that. 38 PM 6/18/03 -0500, Steven wrote: >Polly, > >After three days without potable water what is the difference between sole >and soul? > >Steven Pollack > >-----Original Message----- >From: email@example.com [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org] >Sent: Wednesday, June 18, 2003 10:23 AM >To: cpeo-military >Subject: [CPEO-MEF] Lessons of MMR > > >I realize the residents of Cape Cod treasure their aquifer, but it is a sole >source (drinking?) water aquifer, not soul source. > >cheers, > >Polly Parks > >~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ >You can find archived listserve messages on the CPEO website at > >http://www.cpeo.org/newsgrp.html > >If this email has been forwarded to you and you'd like to subscribe, please >send a blank message with no subject to: > >email@example.com > > > > > > Polly Parks ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
