Some years ago I read a paperback called, 'The Soulless Ones Among Us' and since then the title has stuck with me. Is there such a thing as soulless people among us?
Yes, but there are many complexities around this issue, so I'll do my best to clarify. It delves deeply into alien intervention with Earth life that has gone on for millions of years.
There are two different factions of aliens interfering with human affairs: those who want to help us evolve (let's call them group A) and those who want to exterminate humanity (group B). Group A is not purely altruistic in their motivation; their own survival and their way of life, depend on our survival. Group B is in a trade dispute with group A, and wishes to remove humanity in order to destroy the stronghold of the races in group A.
Both the species in these groups, especially group A, are at least a million years ahead of humanity in advanced technology. The biggest threatening ability of all of these races, however, lies in their capability to assume any lifeform's shape. They could appear as a beautiful movie star or sports hero or even a favorite pet.
The most dominant race in group A, is masterful at genetically engineering any race that is needed for a specific purpose. The only specie on Earth that has not been created by them, is the race of godbeings — the Original Ones.✶

Here's a disclaimer. Every answer conjures further questions, and doubtless these new revelations will do the same. Especially in terms of how this information fits with previous material?† Realize that just because something isn't fully explained, doesn't mean it can't (or won't eventually) be. And this path, after all, requires a comfort with not knowing. (We also don't forward questions anymore that are about pacifying surface mind, and accounting for perceived contradictions.) That said, my guess is that with humanity's surprising new future, its past is now also rewritten.‡
