Unplug your computer. It stops working, there is no more energy being inputted into the system for it to keep functioning. Some people seem to think
that the energy system of the human body works in such a way that after the system dies the energy can keep going without any further input that it
required during life.
Obviously this is wrong just through common sense alone. Energy isn't a separate physical 'thing' different from matter. It's not like there are
these two physical things in the universe called energy and matter. All energy is manifested through matter, every single form. Don't believe me,
look it up. You can't have something called energy without matter.
When we are alive, we take in food which our body breaks down into usable chemicals and along with the air we breath, both of these things get used by
the body in order to keep the system functioning. When one system fails it can no longer sustain a working system, ultimately leading to the death of
that system. When you die, other living things use what your body is made of in the same way that you use other things to keep yourself alive.
So when you say energy never ends, your right. What's missing is the affirmation that energy doesn't exist as a separate entity from matter and
it's not something that just detaches from the body and skips on it's merrily little way.
