We must now consider the knowledge of the separated soul. Under this head there are eight points of inquiry:

A[1] Whether the soul separated from the body can understand?

A[2] Whether it understands separate substances?

A[3] Whether it understands all natural things?

A[4] Whether it understands individuals and singulars?

A[5] Whether the habits of knowledge acquired in this life remain?

A[6] Whether the soul can use the habit of knowledge here acquired?

A[7] Whether local distance impedes the separated soul's knowledge?

A[8] Whether souls separated from the body know what happens here?
