Some translations translate “pneuma” in Rev. 13:15 “spirit”.
Revelation 13:15 (YLT)
15 and there was given to it to give a spirit to the image of the beast, that also the image of the beast may speak, and that it may cause as many as shall not bow before the image of the beast, that they may be killed.
I believe that this image being given a spirit indicates that it is given true life. It may be a clone or a transhuman creation. At present there is many attempts to create clones and transhuman creatures.
