The thought of the imminent cessation of existence frightens any person. The frightening processes associated with the gradual decomposition of body tissues of a still very recently living organism cannot but cause the natural desire of mankind to find the very panacea that would be able to save us from such a terrible fate. However, what will happen if you try to consider the dying of a living being not from the point of view of biology, but from the point of view of physics?
Where does the energy of a living organism go after death?
As you know, the human body consists of matter and different types of energies. So, energy can be both chemical, existing in the form of certain reactions inside the human body, and electrical, being, in essence, various impulses and signals. In fact, the reactions taking place inside any living creature bring them closer to plants that generate energy through photosynthesis.
Be that as it may, the process of generating energy in humans is much more complicated. According to an article published on the futurism.com portal, the energy produced in the human body every second may well be enough to light a small 20-watt light bulb. Basically, this energy is obtained from food consumption, and, at its core, is a chemical form of energy. This type of energy is then converted into its kinetic form, which feeds the muscles and allows the living being to fully breathe, feed, move and reproduce.
Every second, the human body generates enough energy to light a 20-watt light bulb.
As we know from the school thermodynamics course, energy cannot be created or destroyed. She just changes her state. It is common knowledge that the total amount of energy in an isolated system does not change, and Einstein's experiments also prove that matter and energy are two rungs of the same ladder. If we consider the Universe as a kind of closed system, then we can conclude that absolutely all the atoms and particles that filled our universe at the time of the Big Bang are currently present next to us. Even though all living things on Earth are open systems capable of exchanging energy with the outside world, after death, the entire set of atoms of which we are composed is re-profiled, allowing the energy of a living being to continue to echo in space until the end of time.
The famous physicist Aaron Freeman confirms such an unusual theory. The scientist believes that the first law of thermodynamics refutes our concept of death in the form in which we are used to seeing it. Every vibration of the body of a living organism, every particle of heat and waves coming from all these smallest particles cannot be destroyed or destroyed in any way. According to the law of conservation of energy, you and I will not die. We will just one day become less orderly than we are now.
