Re: Life, and Death as an Experience for the Soul

The jellyfish I referred to in my above post is the Torritopsis dohrnii also Known as the immortal jellyfish. It turns out that once the adult form of the 4.5 mm-wide species Turritopsis dohrnii have reproduced, they don’t die but transform themselves back into their juvenile polyp state. Their tentacles retract, their bodies shrink, and they sink to the ocean floor and start the cycle all over again. Among laboratory samples, all the adult Turritopsis observed regularly undergo this change. And not just once: they can do it over and over again. Of course with the human {animal} soul would lose its physical body and only the soul energy would survive.

It’s not just the immortal jellyfish that can rise from its own ashes. In 2011, a marine biology student in China kept a moon jellyfish (aurelia aurita) in a tank. When it died, he kept the body in another tank. Three months later, a new tiny polyp was growing out the top of the moon jellyfish. This regeneration process has now been found in around five species of jellyfish.

Of course for human {animals} it is the soul that survives and the body dies permanently. I use the jellyfish to illustrate that nature does support immortal energy sources and that the 'soul' energy survives despite the demise of the physical properties of a living thing. The energy is immortal, the physical properties of the body is not.
