The Metaphysics of Second Life

Do Avatars have a soul of their own, your soul divided between you and them, or are just temporary constructs. If they have a soul that is part of yours, does that explain why events in Second Life cause joy and pain as much as they can in Real Life? And when we go offline, does the avatar go into a limbo state, still living, still existing, slouching away from Jerusalem, waiting to be born.

We are not dead, we who in cyber lie, and with electronic dreams, even death will die.
