One Soul or Many?

Perzephone got me thinking about this in another thread, talking about where the soul resides and mentioned souls in cells.

So my question is, if our bodies are made of millions of cells and each cell has a soul, is my soul made up of many souls or is my soul separate from all those little souls? And if we follow that line upward, does a community have a soul? The whole population?

I know answers will vary depending on definition of soul, of course.

Along this same line, ants fascinate me. The ant colony is really the organism, not the individual ants--they're more like cells. So again, it's the one and the many. Do individual ants have souls or the colony?
