Metaphysics.... (Posted on 2003-07-22) Difficulty: 3 of 5
I cannot be felt, seen or touched;
Yet I can be found in everybody;
My existence is always in debate;
Yet I have my own style of music.

What Am I?

The first line suggests that the answer is either an inanimate object or an abstract concept.

Line 3 together with the title suggests that this is an abstract concept related to metaphysics.

Line one suggests that the said metaphysical concept is present in every person.

Now we know that: 

 " The soul, according to many religious and philosophical traditions, is the self-aware essence unique to a particular living being. In these traditions the soul is thought to incorporate the inner essence  of each living being, and to be the true basis for sapience, rather than the brain or any other material or natural part of the biological  organism. Some religions and philosophies on the other hand believe in the soul having a material component, and some have even tried to establish the weight of the soul. Souls are usually considered to be immortal and to exist prior to incarnation."

It may be observed that "soul" is also an unique style of music in conformity with the tenets inclusive of line four.
Accordingly, "soul" satisfies all the criteria corresponding to lines 1 to 4 including the problem title, and consequently, the required answer to the given riddle is "soul".
