Before I get shouted down, hear me please.
Assuming the dead exist, they certainly don't have the same bodies as us.
So for us to "other" them as "dead" is racist.
If anything, I'd refer to them as the "mortally challenged".
For example: "If the existing non-mortally challenged spoke more to the previously existing mortally challenged via EVP, the world would be a better place!"
Why this apartheid based on mortality?
Why can't we all be spiritually non-binary?

a reply to: halfoldman After your body and brain ceases to function it is legally dead.
In my belief system the soul continues to live. Free of the encumberence of the body and brain that housed it here on earth.
Therefore, IMO, as a a soul and or spirit I am not dead and will care not if refered to as dead.
