I think you're on the right track. However, I don't suppose Wolfe is
proposing any
specific answer to the question of what a soul is, let alone whether it can be
copied or not. Rather, I suggest that he's asking questions: "What if
_this_ were
possible; then where would the soul be?" and some of his novels are, among
other things, attempts to explore those questions, though not necessarily to
_answer_ them as such.

The best fiction raises questions but doesn't necessarily answer them.
