In his letters, Paul sometimes seems to use the two terms interchangeably. Is there a theological distinction?

Sometimes "spirit" is used to refer to the higher faculties of "soul." Unless it's the other way around.

Rational thought. Control of the will by the intellect. Stuff that mere animals can't do.

I recently found out that there is meaning of the hand gestures used in icons: https://aleteia.org/2016/06/12/what-do- ... cons-mean/

Nowadays they say the traditional hand signal for "excellent" (thumb touching index finger) really means "White Power" and you can't use it anymore.
