I'm not going to say yes and won't say no either. But I will say this, for myself, if I look into your eyes and don't like what I see, that person will know right off the bat that I have no intentions of carrying on a conversation with them. Yes, those eyes do tell a story....

Believe what you want and I'll believe whatever I want...it's an open field, and
everyone is given a chance at making a home run...

.........So, when people look into my eyes and tell me they see an endless abyss, or that they see death when they look into my eyes, or that I have no soul, or that they can't look me in the eye because it instils in them a seance of dread, terror, fear and gives them the chills. (Visibly shudder after looking into my eyes)

That "You must be an unhappy person."

"When I first met you, you looked like death warmed over."

"I was afraid to talk to you for years, because I thought you where a serial killer."

"I've served in the armed forces and received thousand yard stairs with more life in them than you."

"Your eyes are creepy"

"Even after knowing you all these years, you always make me feel like you want to kill me when I look at your eyes."

"Stay away from me! Anyone with eyes like yours is trouble!"

"Mommy! That man has devil eyes!" (Followed by a crowd of people that all calling out heathen and devil worshiper, etc.)(Even had a priest throw holy water on me and try to preform an exorcism.)

The only members of my family that will look me in the eye for any length of time are and where, my great grand mother and father from my mothers side of the family, and my grand mother and grandfather from my fathers side of the family, my uncle from my mothers side, father, half brother and only one of my three sisters.

I work hard, pay my taxes, open the door for ladies, say yes sir/mam, no sir/mam, please, thank you, don't curs or swear, don't drink, smoke, commit debauchery or other lewd acts,

Mind my own business, for the most part, save for when people are doing something stupid that will get me killed along with them. (Opening a pure hydrogen fuel cell in an Oxygen rich environment, FYI for you non-science folks, that equals an explosion, that could take out half the building and needs to be stopped before that happens, or lifting a two tone cooling unit off a fellow employee, My uncles car off him....several times. (DON"T USE CINDER BLOCKS TO HOLD UP A CAR PEOPLE.) But short of that I mind my own business.

So, am I a soulless person? A serial killer? A solder? Emotionally distressed person? Unhealthy?..........Just because of my eyes?!?!?!?

What the heck!?!

Doesn't sound fair to me.
Please explain this phenomenon.......IN DETAIL.

So if I read the article right, it's perception that is analagous  to the Soul and not the eyes per say...seems an exercise in semantics more than anything...

I be Ra...The river of life, the ebb and flow of summer tides...
Make not an image of me, nor offer unto me the limitations of form...
For I be Soul....and I will not be limited...

From the article:

"It is also worth noting that the part of the brain in which self-awareness is thought to arise, called the ventromedial prefrontal cortex, happens to be located behind the eyes. It is possible, Burton said, that we may "feel" as if we are physically located near our eyes because our identity emerges in the neurons there."

I'd agree with that, I intuitively feel that's where my awareness rises as well.

So it isn't really "in the eyes" as the thread title says, it's behind the eyes, in the "ventromedial prefrontal cortex" in the brain.

If one's eyes are surgically removed, there is still self awareness, but if one's ventromedial prefrontal cortex is removed, that's likely when self awareness would end.

Or would it? I wonder what kind of experiments have been done over the years with regards to surgery on this area and others in an attempt to find out.

Its maybe one of the reasons that poker players where those shades to hide there eyes :tsu:

Our means of receiving impressions are absurdly few, and our notions of surrounding objects infinitely narrow. We see things only as we are constructed to see them, and can gain no idea of their absolute nature. With five feeble senses we pretend to comprehend the boundlessly complex cosmos - H.P. Lovecraft

I would be hesitant to agree with this,there are people that are naturally nervous and their eye movements may look like they are lying or being deceptive.I would concede that emotions may be expressed through the eyes to some extent,although ,personally I find the face a theater of expression.Depending on the situation when I am angry,I may have an odd smile of anticipation,or you might see my eyes change color as the muscles in my jaw knot up,or just a cold heat being emitted and the tone of my voice.For the most part I am usually smiling and easy going so for many people I don't really appear to be an emotional person.

  I am more inclined to make judgments about others by their mannerisms,if they express themselves in certain ways I become wary of them and watch and listen closely without letting my caution show,allow them to reveal themselves.I come from a small city and the first time that I went to a large city 1mil. pop. when I was 17 I could smell the fear in people as I walked down the street and I came from a rough and tumble place.But none of those things reveal anything about the soul,they are relative to the character of the person.

It's not just about the physical appearance of ones eyes-- :cry:--it's more like what's beneath, beyond--or more less a reflection of what lays within an individual--a sort of knowing, feeling and being able to recognize that which lurks much deeper than just what one is physically seeing when looking into another's eyes. It is the covering, the lenses-- :w00t: And as for those who cannot see, their hearing is elevated and much more pronounced than you or I--a gift
in a sense that not all will come to understand...

Mine eyes have seen the Glory of the coming of the Lord ,
I look into your eyes and what do I see, they look all bloodshot with little veins due to too much smoking and drinking .

(2) try your second best, ........if that dont work
(3) give up you aint gonna win
