At what moment are you dead? [Ted Ed video by Randall Hayes]

at what moment are you deadFor as far back as we can trace our existence, humans have been fascinated with death and resurrection. But is resurrection really possible? And what is the actual difference between a living creature and a dead body anyway?

Randall Hayes delves into the scientific theories that seek to answer these age-old questions…

“If we think of life not as some magical spark but a state of incredibly complex state of self-perpetuating organization, death is just the process of increasing entropy that destroys this fragile balance. And the point at which someone is completely dead turns out not to be a fixed constant but simply a matter of how much of this entropy we are currently capable of reversing.”
