"Too easy", a really interesting phrase. Evidently contradictory at first glance, but not really so difficult to understand if you really want to.
The reason that most people are going to miss what you're saying, crow, is that many of us are not used to considering the difference between self and perception. Superstitious-religious people believe in a soul or self that is totally intangible and occupies some indeterminate spiritual space that is not affected causally or physically. These kind of people are not going to understand because they don't know that their soul is actually very tangible and very much open to the pressures and hazards of life and death in our world of suns and planets.
Other people are still superstitious but irreligious, and they are going to shut down any possibility of a soul, because to admit that they have one would mean acknowledging the very immediate danger that their soul is in. I could be wrong about this, but considering what most atheists I've talked to have had to say, this seems to be the case. Knowledge of the state of their soul would be overwhelming and fearsome. They are their own perceptions, in their own mind, they have withdrawn their connections with everything that is not their own mind. I am that way, and it is sad. But I'm also fearless compared to them, and I acknowledge my soul, along with the damage I've done to it.
