    A light went out, true. But life and death are just transformation. the soul can never be cut to pieces by any weapon nor burned by fire no moistened by water nor withered by the wind. Individual soul is unbreakable insoluble. Soul is everlasting present everywhere n unchangeable immovable and eternally the same.
