- Australian scientists found that bodies were in motion for 17 months after being declared dead.
- Researchers used the photography capture technology at 30-minute intervals daily to capture the movement.
- This study could help to better determine the time of death.
Every day we learn more about death. Much has been said and theorized about the great gap between life and the Great Afterlife. While each and every culture has its own philosophies and unique ideas on the subject, we are learning a lot of new scientific facts about the deceased physical form.
An Australian scientist has found that human bodies move for more than a second expressed year after death. These results could affect areas as diverse as pathology and criminology.
Implications of the Study
Researchers believe that understanding these movements and the post-mortem rate of death could help predict the timing of death. For example, the police could benefit because it could give missing persons a timeline and associate them with an unidentified body. According to the team:
"Understanding the rate of degradation for a human donor in the Australian environment is important to the police, forensic anthropologists and pathologists, so the PMI is helpful in identifying unknown victims as well as in investigating accidents involving criminal activities.
While scientists have found no evidence of necromancy. , , The discovery remains a curious new understanding of what happens to the body after we die.
