each belief system offers an afterlife and judgement concept against the cruel and unfair world. this virtual world of bleiefs and karma makes our earthly existence tolerable; faith increases our resilience to endyre what we see and go through. reality, though, is just opposite; even when we die, our bodies decay and bones disintegrate at different rates, depending on how, whereand with what method we were buried. such is the manifestation of this world, the same caste system present in life continues in death, as is evident even in the forms we die.
