one or the other is ok. It is absolutely not important what you do with a dead body.
Once the body in which you live dies, you return yourself as an information, a state of pure energy to where you came from.
You can't destroy energy and the consciousness that makes it exist in it's state of being. That is the so called immortality of your soul.
You are all matter and matter is a state of being, a visual aspect it takes and driven by a basic thought that makes it look the way we see it.
Energy is something you can not create, nor destroy. All you can do is transform it in it's way it radiates and thus appears or reacts.
Electricity we use is a transformation of state of energy. We tap an energy source to create another one and so is your body. When the motoring force
quits it, the source that makes is appear the way it is, it enters in another way of consciousness and this is at base the state of soil or ash in a
case of cremation. Our body is nothing more then a form of energy transformation, food to live.
We humans have the ability on a greater scale, animals and plants on a lower scale to modify the consciousness of matter. We can make out of a tree a
plank, out of a plank a bench and order this piece of wood to remain in that state of consciousness until someone else has another idea.
So, do not think about the piece of dead meet that remains once you die.
Best would be to recycle it as food for animals, at least it was not lost for all of this planet. On the end, sh.t becomes soil too, it is another way
to reach the same goal, just someone had used the energy we waste when we burn it. If you dig it in the soil, some animals will be happy.
Now make up your choice and, please, don't be selfish, help animals to live as well.
