Life is Holistic

January 4, 2014

Resurrection is impossible for the same reason that it’s impossible to re-create a medeival blacksmithy. Life is holistic, and does not stop at our skin, but includes the entire world in which we exist.

We can create a model, or immitation of a medeival blacksmithy. But in order to actually re-create one, we’d have to re-create castles and peasants and feudal lords and mounted knights and cobblestone streets, and all the other elements of its world that it interacted with. Similarly, to re-create a person we would have to re-create the world they lived in and all of their relationships. If we created a duplicate of a person who once existed, that person would be living in a different world and would thus be a different person.
