Death — an integral part of life.
Before fans of the TV series "the Walking dead" will start in the rush to pack prepared in case of occurrence of a zombie Apocalypse, specify: there is nothing to fear. However, the news is really terrible. As the study itself. Scientists from the Australian centre for taphonomically (posthumous) experimental studies (AFTER) photographed the body of a deceased person for 17 months. The results were truly staggering — it turned out that the human body is moving throughout the year. Thus, creepy stories about spirits that turned over in his grave finally received a scientific justification.
In our society to discuss as it is not accepted. Meanwhile, knowledge about what is happening with the human body immediately after death, can help to look at the world from a different angle. In the end, the cure for immortality is not yet invented, and that means that the life of each of us will end sooner or later. This will happen regardless of whether we want it or not, whether we believe in an afterlife or reincarnation or do not believe in anything. It is the awareness that we are on this planet for a short while, the spice of life special value. Some even believe that this is the meaning of life. Let's try to discuss it with the participants .
Now, immediately after death enter into the work of irreversible natural processes. Death marks the cessation of brain activity and fall in body temperature of 1.6 degrees, until it reaches the room. Then due to lack of oxygen the body cells will start to die and subsequently be cleaved, thus starting the process of decay. Within a few hours after his death in relaxing the muscles will begin to accumulate calcium, causing them to shrink. Is — rigor Mortis. It lasts about 36 hours.
In our world nothing is eternal. Even the planet Earth sooner or later will die
When the muscles finally relax, there will be a release of residual fluid and feces. The skin will shrivel, because of what it seems that nails and hair are longer. Then, with the help of bacterial enzymes in the internal organs will start to recycle themselves. This will give the skin a characteristic greenish tint. Then there will inevitably be an unpleasant smell — this is due to the fact that a decomposing body produces chemical substances, such as putrescine and cadaverine.
Then the picture becomes even bleaker. Already within a week the larvae can take up to 60% of the body. And because of the further destruction of bacteria, color of the skin becomes purple and then black. At a temperature of +10 degree of the soft tissues will take only 4 months to complete the expansion. Anyway, if not to resort to cremation, all that remains from us .
It is believed that after death the bodies can move. However, nobody thought that it could last for years and even more. Scientists from the Australian centre AFTER conducting research in the field of activity of human body after death. An employee of the center named Alison Wilson conducted an experiment, photographing the corpse of the man who donated his body to science every half hour for 17 months. A study published in the journal Forensic Science International: Synergy.
But skeletons sure do not move
According to Dr. Wilson, in the course of the study she and her colleagues found that the hands of the dead changed their location. Being in close proximity to body, hands of the dead was gradually drawn away from the sides. Experts believe that such movements are caused by the process of decomposition. In connection with the received data, the researchers came to the conclusion that many of the bodies are buried continue to move throughout the year.
Dr. Wilson also hopes that its discovery will help to improve our understanding of death. It is no secret that the lapse of the decomposition processes is common practice among scientists from different fields of science, but understanding exactly how to behave after his death, obtained for the first time.
