Is there any scientific evidence that shows souls might exist, how are we alive. What sets us apart from any other object with a similar chemical makeup? Is it really all just chemical reactions what truly makes us different and "alive"?

Previous thread: >>11534971
Alexander Rhodes who was suffering from porn addiction started a movement called No-Fap. People from all over the world joined the challenge as they try to overcome porn addiction by abstaining from masturbation. But is it beneficial to do so? Or is it harmful?
Here are some studies I found about >the dangers of pornography:
1. Neuroscience of pornography addiction
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4600144/
2. Watching porn causes sexual dysfunction like erectile dysfunction.
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5039517/
3. Porn cause lowering of acetylcholine levels, which causes brain fog
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4600144/
4. Porn can affect your sexual tastes especially in your younger age
https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jamapsychiatry/fullarticle/1874574

And here are some other studies about >the dangers of jerking off and benefits of No-Fap
1. Masturbation can cause hair loss
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/135817/
2.No-fap raises levels of testosterone
https://healthfully.com/effects-of-masturbation-on-testosterone-5625804.html
3. Masturbation harms functionality of brain regions connected with dopaminergic system. It can cause decrease of one’s motivation
https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/23707935/
4.Ejaculation reduces oxytocin levels. Oxitocin is a hormone responsible for bonding with other human beings.

Has anyone looked into this new Geometric Unity theory from Mr. Weinstein? He was on Rogan explaining it... what I understood is, he wants to go back to Einstein and pave a new way by 'geometrizing' it all in a different way, via a 14-dimensional construct and some self-reference loop? Is it woo woo?

Pic. related. Mr. Weinstein with another decorated Scholar.
