The existence of all sentient beings is a struggle between the finite nature of spatial form and the seemingly infinite nature of time. And time always trumps space. For long after the spatial form decays, dies, and decomposes, there will still be time. Decomposition of course actually transforms the elements of the spatial form to another state of existence; hence there remains a space time continuum between the carnal and the temporal. As for the cognitive nature of the sentient being, the fate of such remains a point of debate and conjecture.
Your guess is as good as mine.
