Being a nurse, I get to see people die or find them dead almost on a weekly basis. It's amazing how their body loses it's spirit. They die and whatever power that made them move just goes out. I can't describe it to you. It makes you wonder what just happened? I mean did the life force just go back to the one that gave it. Or is the life force out there ready to inhabit some newborn? I just don't know.
I'm getting burned out. I've called in several times this month. I'm sure that I'll be in the bosses office next week.
My question is where does that life force go? I had a physics teacher explain it in a way that was understandable, but I sure as hell can't repeat it in a way that you'd understand it.
There's a theological explanation and there's a scientific one. I think you should look up the scientific explanation of how a molecule can be used in the atmosphere. She said something like nothing ever really dies, that it gets used by something else. You know like how decayed stuff can help a tree grow...
I don't know if this helps, but I know where you're coming from.
