The reality is likely to be that none of us knows either! But by knocking the subject about we may be able to creep up a little closer to an answer that looks a real possibility once all the least likely suggestions have been eliminated.

The other reality is that it doesn't much matter if we do know but extrapolating that argument it doesn't much matter if we know about many other spiritual aspects either. But humankind is an enquiring and curious beast and without that attribute it wouldn't be where it is right now, be that good, bad or indifferent! So we continue to try to fathom the many mysteries of life, of death and then what follows.

I Agree,I've taxed my mind too much,I'm going to make a cup of tea take care bye.

Oh I've just had my morning cuppa! And nowadays this 'stuff' what my mind thrives on.... I've come to terms with most of the less-demanding stuff.

All the biology stuff is pretty much understood to some degree but what I'm asking is a question that on a larger scale we already have a modicum of spiritual guidance about - what makes us alive?

It's that similar question about sperm - what keeps 'em alive rather than just functioning chemically/biologically?

Until this thread I'd not thought about this question. So I'm just throwing out ideas atm

Wonder how long the sperm can last without any fluid around it.

Any ideas on the frozen sperm question anyone?

Consciousness keeps us alive,our soul.Once the sperm has done its job,all the thousands of others die.Could you say sperm has consciousness? I don't know.

The fluid is there to make the sperms job easier,something to
swim in and probably norish it on it's way,I don't think it'd survive otherwise.Like you I hadn't thought of this before.It certainly isn't human as frozen sperm can be thawed to fertilise an egg,but you try freezing a human then trying to bring him/her back to life.

Yes, so maybe the "magic" is in the fluid

That's a good point about the frozen human issue
