  When observing a dead body, it is obvious that something is missing. The glow, warmth and movement that characterizes a living human being are obviously lacking. “The thing”, which is lacking is the formless energy that makes a person alive. The entire physical body including the brain and the heart and the genes are left back, they are no longer self-propelled as they seemed to be when the body was fully alive. In a metaphor the notes and the instruments that contributed to the orchestra of the body are still there, but the conductor and the sound has left the orchestra. It all happens in a breath, one moment alive the next moment dead.
