The meaning of death is simply the absence of life or the absence of the intellectual consciousness that provided the potential energy required to keep the organism in motion.

There is no tangible scientific or religious evidence that can be used to factually conclude that the consciousness (soul) of a person has a subsequent ethereal existence outside of the body.
