what is your talisman?

According to Wikipedia David Livingstone was a Scottish physician, Congregationalist, and pioneer Christian missionary with the London Missionary Society, an explorer in Africa, and one of the most popular British heroes of the late 19th-century era.


As he landed on the shores of Africa, he was confronted with a unanimous question on the talisman the whites uses against death to raise their dead. he made them know that death is not sickness and can not be avoided.


Then I can boldly tell us that we are creatures of eternity trapped into the envelope of time on earth who can only go back on the expiration of the time given or on the sudden
destruction of the time given.


What is Death?

is the permanent, irreversible cessation of all biological functions that sustain a living organism. Brain death is sometimes used as a legal definition of death.

The remains of a previously living organism normally begin to decompose shortly after death. Death is an inevitable, universal process that eventually occurs in all living organisms.

The biological problems

Whether one considers the death of individual cells, the death of small multicellular organisms, or the death of a human being, certain problems are repeatedly met.

The physicist may encounter difficulties in trying to define death in terms of entropy change and the second law of thermodynamics. So may the histologist looking at the ultrastructure of dying tissue through an electron microscope.

Pope Pius XII, speaking to an International Congress of Anesthesiologists in 1957, raised the question of when, in the intensive care unit, the soul left the body. More secularly inclined philosophers have meanwhile pondered what it was that was so essential to the nature of man that its loss should be called death.

The questions of what may or may not be legitimately demanded of a “beating-heart cadaver” (in terms of supplying donor organs for transplants or of serving as a subject for physiological experimentation) has given new poignancy to the quip made by the English author Sir Thomas Browne in 1643: “With what strife and pains we come into the world we know not, but ’tis commonly no easy matter to get out of it.”


Death: process or event

The American physician and writer Oliver Wendell Holmes said “to live is to function” and “that is all there is in living.” But who or what is the subject who lives because it functions?

Is death the irreversible loss of function of the whole organism (or cell)—that is, of every one of its parts? Or is it the irreversible loss of function of the organism (or cell) as a whole—

The “point of no return”

To claim that death is a process does not imply that this process unfurls at an even rate, or that within it there are no “points of no return.” The challenge is to identify such points with greater precision for various biological systems.

At the clinical level, the irreversible cessation of circulation has for centuries been considered a point of no return.


Fears of being buried alive

this fear has long haunted humankind. During the 19th century, for example, accounts of “live sepulture” appeared in medical writing and led to repeated demands that putrefaction—the only sure sign of the death of the whole organism—be considered an essential prerequisite to a diagnosis of death, yet, who can tell how many Africans that have been buried alive without the essential final diagnosis of death.


a pastor friend in Nigeria narrated a story about a burial service where the dead rose and lasted for seconds and finally dropped again and was buried for the next 20 minutes.

What can I say, if not to cry for the many living but buried to really die?

This is beautiful and well written. Thank you for sharing. I also conclude that the end of circulation is the end of life, terminating in death.. Death is ceasing to live. End of story. Death need not be a fearful thing. Through hope by faith, death is the end of our life-long struggle. Through faith, the restoration of life when the struggles are past is beautiful timing on the part of our Maker!
