" what is the basic difference between the dead and alive, where apparently a dead being have all those organs which a live person have ?

The above question is based on theorotical assumptions that the dead person has no injury, wound of any kind, no desease, no loss of blood and no suffocation or murder of any kind. He is dead because the heart is not pumping - that man had his physical check up the same day and it was found that his heart is as strong as a horse.

Death is the cessation of neurological activity in the brain. Any part of the body can stop working (liver, kidney, heart etc) and the patient will live if they receive fast enough medical attention, except for the brain. If the brain stops, everything stops.

When the brain stops, the bio-electrical network in the brain collapses, and that's it, game over. It is currently impossible to reboot the brain network and it will remain impossible for many years to come. But maybe, one day, science will work out how to restart the brain's network of neurons. Then, literally, we will be able to bring people back from the after-life.

A fascinating idea, huh? Let's see if they come back with stories of a land of milk and honey and 72 virgins... or... not.
