Testing If the Eyes Are the Window to the Soul

I don't want to mock, because this really was an interesting experiment:
[Researchers] designed their experiment after a conversation in which they discussed intuitively feeling as if their consciousnesses were "located" near their eyes, and that objects seemed closest to them when near their eyes. "We set out to test whether this was a universally shared intuition,"

But... 2 things.

1) The eyes are the only sense organs that both move and have a small, specific location, so there may be some bias here.

2) Nobody bothered asking blind people where they thought the soul was located.
