Scientists now believe in MWI(Many worlds theory) and they always wonder which path conciousness takes. I say it takes all of them so we live forever and have lived forever living out every concious probability that is causally created or retrocaused.
Even better conciousness could be represented by an infinite sphere that goes inwards and ouwards for eternity in 0 dimensions. Only conciousness exists and precedes any primordial soup. "I am before the primordial soup."
But in a classical world view I'm happy to follow newtonian physics and try and verify the bible as it makes more sense to my human mind. Jesus was the Son of God(The all that is) just like everybody reading this is also a Son, Daughter of the all that is. We are all that is.
Don't let the sub atomic particles precede you. But don't be deceived either because the whole is greater then the sum of its parts. God is great!
Edit - 9 The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world. 10 He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. 11 He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. 12 Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God ó 13 children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husbandís will, but born of God.

New International Version (©1984)
For whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother."
So Jesus existed with the father before time began which means we did too. If we accept Jesus is God in the flesh he is saying he is one with us by the above statement. The reason I believe we need to do the will of the father in heaven is because that is the greater view of creation that we need to keep in line with. The whole has a better view then its parts. If the parts go in all different directions it is not doing the will of the whole.
So it is fair to say your soul which is part of the whole preceded the primordial soup because the whole knew all its parts before they were born in the flesh. The spirit in the flesh comes from the whole. I think 99 percent of people have missed the meaning of what Jesus said unless I am the 1 percent lost sheep which would not surprise me if that is true!
Everything we call real is made of things that cannot be regarded as real.
