I've often wondered similarly, OP. Just because our chemical design doesn't allow for space being a feasible habitat doesn't necessarily mean
something else isn't a good fit for it. Growing up on all thing Star Trek, the show itself prodded me to think about that when space dwelling
creatures were depicted. Hey, for all we know, there might be a real-life answer to the Farpoint space jelly fish out there.
As for after death, well, we do have a measurable electrical current. It doesn't just go poof when we do. I personally think that when it dissipates
from our corpses after death that it's merely reabsorbed into the electrical fields on the planet, and potentially the universe. I think we're kind
of like organic low-capacity batteries in that sense, and ones that discharge after death.
I'm not a proponent of life after death in the spirits and demons religious sense (fables are nice, but often dopey) HOWEVER. I'm willing to
consider that death is like a molting stage, and we shed this current shell for something else. Now, if you're going to consider that, I have to put
forth that all living creatures with a measurable electrical current do the same thing. What do we & them turn in to after that? The things that make
you go "hmm..."
And again, while I'm also no believer in ghosts from the beyond, I'd also put forth that perhaps we do exist in a multi-verse, and what we see & dub
as ghosts and/or demons might actually be some visual bleed-over from a different branch of the multi-verse tree. The "walls" between us could be a
little thin or broken in some places for all we know. Who's to say every example of existence is identical in all ways? Some probably vary greatly
from ours, and thus look startlingly different in terms of what it looks like and what inhabits them.
