"I imagine soul as kinesis, process, creation, interplay, and continuous motion. Soul is generally synonymous with psyche, but it suggests particular and individualized conditions.....The souless state is one of dessication, when "the currents no longer run." "An artist finds deep satisfaction through creative kinesis with it's accompanying feelings of vitality and potentiality.

For Lawrence [D. H.] this is the divinity, something he called 'vital energy.' ....He preferred continuous and spontaneous movement...For Lawrence, soul was lost when 'pure relations' did not exist between himself and ...the dough I knead for bread.'"
