[quote=LonerWolf]I'm not sure if this is the right section to post this topic in, but in a way it relates to death and the afterlife.
More in the sense that I'm curious as to what happens to the person after the body finally gives in and ceases to function.
I expect no one to give me a straight-forward answer, but thanks for your opinion, it means a lot to me.

Read up online - lots of info is available - are you really interested, though? Why other than as an academic exercise?

The physical person may be. Their animating spirit -their 'real' self - is not....

It's likely to be permanent in the physical body.

You may as well ask about opinion on ANY disease.
