Well it depends on what your believes are of what a soul/life is. I believe life is like a test, teast what? Me I guess. And as where it the soul might exists ( dead or alive) who knows. But the way I see it is you are the soul not the body which you are using now, you are the questions you ask and the answers you provide. this body is just to help you experiance things around you from the tiniest to the monumental happinings that is life. Sorry if this doesnt make sense.
