Answer: No, the physical body is a fiction we exist in. The body was only given to us to begin to give shape to our soul. The body, as well as the world, is completely imaginary. The soul is an eternal state that you can attain today. Everything depends on you. Divinity or any other source will not help a person with this.
Question: Is it possible to say that our body is only a means of communication at the lowest level?
Answer: Yes. On the material level we connect with each other through the bodies.
