More profound historical underpinnings of the Germanic word is indistinct. The first idea driving the Germanic root is thought to signify “originating from or having a place with the ocean (or lake)”, in view of the Germanic and pre-Celtic confidence in spirits rising up out of and coming back to sacrosanct lakes, Old Saxon sêola (soul) contrasted with Old Saxon sêo (ocean). The Koine Greek Septuagint utilizes ψυχή (mind) to decipher Hebrew נפש (nephesh), signifying “life, imperative breath”, and explicitly alludes to a human, genuine life, however in English it is differently interpreted as “soul, self, life, animal, individual, craving, mind, living being, want, feeling, passion”; a model can be found in Genesis.
