I think the animals simply rise out the material and dissolve back into it, but humans transcend to the light, so to speak, and Man is the apex life-form of the highest order.

Excellent Videos. I like the point Dr. Bruce Greyson makes about a small percentage of known Dementia cases, were the patient's brain is damaged
and how around the time of dying they become fully lucid again and cognitively functional as in days gone by.

I came across this Video which has something to say about the topic. I like the point which begins at 1 hour 24.15, speaking of GDP and mental well being
and stats and how they can be manipulated etc. Interesting stuff. With respect you can see how Prof. Pinker is educated rightly and wrongly to rely on stats,
its a good example, it's probably a good example of how scientific thinking, in this case mathematics, often excludes the reality of Social nuances.

        Happiness is the result of an enlightened mind whereas suffering is caused by a distorted mind.
