The "spiritual you" cannot suffer a biological death. However, the "biological you" has to disintegrate and re-assimilate into the physical environment. The physical components that make up the Human Being are acquired from the immediate physical environment. The Human body is made up of the following elements with the following percentile ratio:
1. Oxygen (65%)
2. Carbon (18%)
3. Hydrogen (10%)
4. Nitrogen (3%)
5. Calcium (1.5%)
6. Phosphorus (1.0%)
7. Potassium (0.35%)
8. Sulfur (0.25%)
9. Sodium (0.15%)
10. Magnesium (0.05%)
11. Copper, Zinc, Selenium, Molybdenum, Fluorine, Chlorine, Iodine, Manganese, Cobalt, Iron (0.70%)
12. There are also trace amounts of Lithium, Strontium, Aluminum, Silicon, Lead, Vanadium, Arsenic and Bromine
Now let us examine the elements that are found in the Earths Crust (varies based on geographical locations and type of soil):
- Oxygen (46%)
- Carbon, Nitrogen (humus) (5%)
- Hydrogen (0.140%)
- Calcium (4.150%)
- Aluminum (8.230%)
- Iron (5.630%)
- Sodium (2.360%)
- Magnesium (2.330%)
- Potassium (2.090%)
- Titanium (0.565%)
- Hydrogen (0.140%)
- Other Minerals combined (.365%)
- Water and Air (23%)
It is obvious that the same components that make up the human body also makes up the soil of the earths crust. We are all familiar with the term "dust to dust, ashes to ashes". One has to return from whence thus came. The revolving cycle of nature. The true sense of the word reincarnation refers to the cycling of the physical elements of the human body within the physical realm. reincarnation cannot affect the "spiritual you". The carbon atom that was in the human body would enter the soil after the person dies. Then a plant would then assimilate that carbon atom. Then another human would eat that plant and assimilate that same carbon atom. The carbon atom is exhaled out into the atmosphere from process of respiration. The plants would inhale the carbon atom through the process of photosynthesis. The carbon atom would then keep cycling through nature.
If one of the basic functions fail, this would result in immediate death. If one of the advance functions fail. This will lead to the gene pool of the person becoming extinct and discontinued. There are some other functions that are not mentioned because they are not vital for life.
The only way that the "biological you" can continue living after death is through their offspring's. If you were to take an extreme pragmatic view towards life. Everyone's creator would be their own parents. Our mothers and fathers united in order to bring us into existence. In order to ensure that their lineage does not become extinct.
The idealism of the biological process is to reproduce and further adapt to environmental conditions. Evolution guarantees strong offspring s that will be able to successfully feed themselves and secure an ideal mate for reproduction. After every generation the offsprings become better adapted for survival. They will become more resilient against diseases as they will inherit the necessary antibiotics at birth from both parents. Offsprings will also inherit genetical historical data. This is what we refer to as instincts. For example, if a child see's a snake for the first time. They will normally run away. How would they know that the snake is dangerous animal if they were never bitten before or educated beforehand.
One of the main functions of intelligence is to avoid death. Survival is deeply embedded into our genetical data. The only mystery that baffled every generation is what happens after death. This is the power and sting of all religions. Deep down inside, everyone knows that there is more to life than just eating and drinking.
What is the spiritual function of the human body ?
The human body is a vessel for the "spiritual you". The biological body is a form of machinery that is controlled by whoever is inside the body. The human body validates the integrity of the "spiritual you". If a persons spirit is under the bondage of carnal pleasures and needs. That person would have failed to achieve the spiritual objective of life. The "spiritual you" is permanent and the "biological you" is temporary. However, based on the deception cast over the world. Most people are willing to give up permanence for temporary gains. Jesus the Christ warned about losing one's soul in exchange for wealth. When the CHRIST descended from heaven and became flesh in the form of Jesus the Christ. Jesus the Christ was tempted by the devil. However, Jesus the Christ did not do anything wrong at any point, so therefore had no fear of biological death. Remember, the wages of sin is death.
What happens when someone dies ?
This is probable the most heavily debated topic known to man. Does the spirit continue to live on after biological death ? or does the spirit suffer the same fate of discontinuity? After Jesus the Christ was killed on the cross. Jesus the Christ was able to return to his indestructible and eternal CHRIST state. Constantly throughout our lives, we are bound to the earth by gravity. Then finally gravity wins by capturing our bodies down into the dirt of the earth. We must do good and seek eternal life. Atheist may argue that there is no proof of a spirit or hope of eternal life. Atheist also argue that all life stops at death. Based on bio-logical reasoning, there is no evident introductory point of human life. No one knows of a biological explanation for the start of Human Beings or life. However, it must have started somewhere. Else we would not be here arguing this point. Based on mathematical algorithms and common sense. If there is a biological birth there is a biological death. If we do not know where life starts how can we blindly assume it ends with biological death. If there is no starting point, there can never be an ending point.
Praises to the ALPHA and OMEGA who hides these mysteries from the haughty and reveals them to little children.
