“Eureka!” Frank screamed. “I’ve projected a soul, proving that there is more to us than flesh and blood!”
Hearing Frank’s cry, others ran to where he was standing to find out what he was so excited about.
“Look!” Frank shouted, pointing to the white, ghost-like projection next to the wall. “That is the human soul.”
“Actually, Frank,” the chief scientist at the research lab said, “that is a projection, but it’s a spooky owl that was created for the Halloween party. Don’t be disheartened, though,” the chief said. “Someday, the esteemed Dr. Frank N. Stein will make history.”
