Man's soul is God breathed, "ruah" meaning a gentle breath or a wind. What a great image for what God puts within us in our souls!
What makes us special, human, is not our bodies. If that were the case then the presence or absence of cells and organs could redefine us as humans. Not it's the soul, not our development or "falling apart."

You are made in the image of the King to spread His glory, His name, over the entire kingdom.
God puts Adam in a garden He planted Himself and there is barren land all around it and essentially tells Adam to follow the examples around him and spread this beauty throughout the earth.
In what context has God placed you? What have you been given to spread? What beasts are you to name and tame? What thorn bush are you to rescue your fellow man out of?
