A question from a 12 year old child.

If God is everywhere, does it mean that even non-living things have souls and life?

From the word non-living things, you know that they dont have life. A living thing will have the ability to get energy, change energy and use energy. A bacteria, plant, animal and human are all living beings because we can get energy like food, then break it down (digestion) and then use that energy for doing an action.

Non-living cannot get, change or use energy.

Does Non-living things have souls
Yes non-living thing has soul.
1. If soul means to "Exist (being in present)", then non-living beings do exist in time and space.
2. If soul means "Something that can give life", then non-living materials like water, minerals, air can give life and that is how all living beings are made of. Then yes non-living has soul.
3. If soul means "Something of the essence of a reality like Consciousness or God", then yes non-living things like living things has soul which is the that same essence of God or Consciousness.

Conclusion: A soul means something that exist and if cannot get, change and use Energy, then will be a non-living soul. If a soul can change energy, then it is a living soul.

What about things like chair, table etc. how will you call these living things? According to science, these are non-living things because they do not eat, breathe or move.

Does things like chair, table etc. have feelings?
Will they feel pain when we sit on them
?

A living tree's wood when made as a furniture, becomes dead and will not have feeling of pain or pleasure. What makes pain and pleasure or feelings to be felt?. That aspect is what we call as Self-Awareness, the "I" identity. When the tree was living it had the "I": feeling. A wood does not have the "I" Self -Awareness and so it does not feel anything. It is the "I" that experience pain and pleasure and all other feelings.
