    The Law of Conservation of Mass states that matter can be changed from one form into another, mixtures can be separated or made, and pure substances can be decomposed, but the total amount of mass remains constant.

    Similarly, the Law of Conservation of Energy states that energy cannot be created or destroyed, just transformed from one form to another.

    We can categories everything in this world under matter, energy and conscious/mind/soul.

    We already came to the conclusion that matter or energy cannot be destroyed. Then why is it so hard to assume that conscious/mind/soul can also not be destroyed?

    Well, how can it be demonstrated or proven?
    Unless it can be demonstrated, it's only a guess.

    Pretty easy to prove. Just look at any Green's member or voter.

    Where's the definable energy of a mind, soul, conscious?

    And unless proven to be false, it stays a possibility ;)

    Someone need to define it. A long time ago someone defined energy, so someone need to define the next. Maybe the supposed 2grams that missing from body when you die. Mass = energy
    Or who knows, maybe the conscious mind is just a program that run the the body.
