A person is considered to living when the essential air exists in the human body and death is the ultimate outcome when the air that we breathe goes out of it. A living person, while he is alive with this critical air running through the body is able to act and think as a living human being. The brain remains active as long as there is life in the body and as soon as he is dead, the brain becomes inactive.

The person while living is conscious during the time of his life, but loses consciousness immediately after dying.
