There is a distinction between life and death. I define life and death in the following way: death is the biggest restriction, in which a rational being can be placed. Life is the greatest freedom, in which the human mind can be placed. Therefore, humans are between these two poles. So, death is defined as the greatest restriction. This restriction is necessary for the humans-animals and the humans-beasts. Humans-animals and humans-beasts will pass through death, through the thinnest tube that exists in living Nature. It is planting. Therefore, when Nature wants to get rid of such types of people, it passes them through the thinnest tube, where even evil does not stop. When evil reaches up to there, it also stops. Evil cannot get to the other side of that tube, i.e. on the other side of death, because on the other side of death, it is already life there, the life of immortality.
The only immortal thing in you is your mind. In death, human feelings are terminated and he does not feel anymore. He does not feel things as a living person, but only some impressions of his desires, certain intensity remains in him. That person is externally passive, but he can awake. He is like an embryo outside; he is passive. However, if you put that dead person in a body and if he comes into contact with that living person, certain instincts will immediately occur in him. When a sinner dies, he remains the same. Death does not change him at all. He changes when he goes to the other side of death, and namely in life. While he is in death, he is the same. Therefore, until the mind comes in a person and he starts thinking, he cannot change. The only thing that can change human nature is his mind.
