The spirit is the electricity that makes our brain and body function. Whether it retrains consciousness once the body dies, we'll all just have to wait and see lol

Was that really neccessary? If you are not religious fine but done make dumb statements like that because some people think differently than you do



It's kinda like "You". Your essence, I guess.

Well, OP asked...I replied. Just because you don't agree doesn't make it a dumb statement. It's the way I see it.

The fear of death is the most primal, pure kind of fear. Humans, as a general rule, don't like what they don't understand, and death itself is a concept that we're not able to fully grasp, let alone comprehend. We like to think there's something after our life, some trascendental purpose that gives death a more gentle, sweet scent, rather than put it as the abrup, dark end that (I think) it is. There's where the spirit comes into; our belief that some kind of soul of us carries on after we're gone.

I see that belief as a fabrication created out of fear of death. I think that once you die, that's it. That's the end. Your consciousness simply fades away, and you cease to exist. There's no soul or spirit that goes on. There's nothing.

 

You can disagree all you want, but it's not a dumb statement, sir. It's my opinion.



People have difference definitions of a spirit so it is quite hard to get a coherent definition.

My guess is that it is what differentiates us from being merely a complex system of atoms. What exactly that something is, we have yet to comprehend.

Conciousness itself is just a human construct, meant to seperate "living" matter from "non-living" matter, but there isn't any conclusive evidence to prove any kind of difference.

I don't understand.



As I understand it the spirit in literal religious terms is a non physical manifestation of a being that can transport itself to another dimension called the "after life" made up of three planes; paradise, purgatory, and the inferno.

I cannot speak to it beyond theological terms as never witnessed nor felt anything spiritual in my existence.
