|death is a point in time when your brain stop work.|
your body will become cold, they will put you in a grave, you will melt with soil
your soul: is not there when your brain dies. NOT THERE means NOT EXISTANT

|death of individual of lifeform|
gives a chance for transformation, regrouping of material
that can be used by new individuals
for life to go to exsist, while death thee has to be new birth
this give a chance to new combinations of genes
that give new chances to survive
if physical environment should change
so death of individuals in a periodical cycle
gives spieces a means of adopting better to environmental changes
envinronment here including the changes in other lifeforms in surrounding
rebirth = better chance for life and for single spieces to survive on a planet
and not to die out
It is a lot of Darwin in it
when it comes down to th core
mattafort - the deep and realistic thinker

|Death is when you get to stop paying taxes.||-|

|No true. In some countries with the inheretance tax, you could say that you're a tax payer even in death.|
The meaning of death is to give back that which you have borrowed so that nature puts them to another use.

|Death is the point at which you cease to exist as a functional biological entity. When your brain no longer functions you are defacto Dead. Even If your body still lives. You are dead. Your brain is the essence of you.||-|

|JMNitsua: I diagree with you. It's not correct saying that you will die just as your brain stops. That's too materialist. That's - I'd say - unbeautiful! You are everything you have or do, not only a part of it. Your body may even be death but you'll still be alive. When in every place you've been people forget you, then you'll be death. Brain is not the essence of you - it's a part only. Thought, memory and identity are the essence of everything!|

Se vão da Lei da Morte libertando:

Se a tanto me ajudar o engenho e a arte!"

Are getting of the law of death rid:
Singing I'll spread everywhere
If so helps me engine and art!"

|no i don't believe in anything but science aspects of it and so death for me really is when your brain stops to work. |
there is also another aspect of it that i always wanted to ask: what do you think happens if you "fall to sleep forever" meaning you lie down in bed go to sleep and your wife/husband finds you are dead the next morning, kind of the death everyone wishes to have, the death people think is the one where you don't feel anything. nothing scary. but what happens. the heart stops. they say you're dead. no you aren't. your brain still works. for 3 minutes minimum, till you dont have enough oxygen anymore in your brain cells. but isn't that rather painful? i mean there's no real difference between suffocating/drowning and a heart attack where your blood stops pumping right? your brain will still die off of the lack of oxygen just the same. am i right? or do i not know something that you guys do. let me know.
I'm only 17 so gimme a chance ;)

|What is the meaning of death ???|
I think the answer is simple, death is not even
anything to fear, it is to enter a sleep sleep
sleep never to wake up'

|I read an article recently about people who were medically classified as braindead, or in a Persistent Vegetative State being revived after being given a certain type of sleeping pill.|
Perhaps death will turn out to be not so permanent after all.
|19 JMNitsua||2006-09-27 16:16:43|
|Viriol Your Idea of Death is nonsense. You have substituted others memory of your life as being you or the essence of you. when your brain function stops you are in fact dead.Lets not over complicate the process. Dead is dead.However unbeautiful it might be.||-|
|20 JMNitsua||2006-09-28 16:37:56|
|Ishmael I think that if you come back from the dead You were never really Dead to begin with.Perhaps almost dead would be a better term or at deaths door.||-|

|The question asked was "What is the meaning of death?", not "What is death?" It seems to me that URTV666 is asking for a purpose behind it, not a definition, but everyone besides mattafort has simply been defining it, while apparently assuming that it has no meaning. This is a foolish and naive viewpoint, even if one does not believe in the hereafter.|
So, based solely on a materialistic view, death may be defined as the ceasing of an organism's direct action and influence upon the physical universe.
And as to the purpose thereof? In many cases, (those of most animals and plants, as well as some people) the purpose of death is simply as Mattafort described it. However, humans, as rational and emotional creatures can also give each death a purpose and meaning all its own.
Also, death is checkmate.

|The purpose of death is to make room for new carbon units. hahahah||-|

|What is the meaning of death? To me, it is the reason we live (as humans). I am not certain that we were created with intentions (from God) to live forever. If this were so, then, also, is states in the bible that he is the beginning and the end. Therefore, we were at one time Godly, ourselves. Then, once the being Adam came to Earth, the temptation was too strong. The other Godly beings that has not come yet said that he must die and erase the sin. That's the only way death logically makes sense (again, in my humble opinion).||-|
