If you don’t tolerate topics related to death or human corpses, I advise you to stop reading this article already at the beginning. However, if you are – maybe not a lover of this subject – but a man curious about the world (because this is precisely what this blog is aimed at!), I invite you to a nice and extremely interesting reading related to the process, which concerns each of us!
What happens to the human body after death?
Let’s start from the very beginning. Okay, maybe let’s not go as far into the past, let’s skip the stage of birth, youth and old age. You are dying. And what next?
Well, the first stage of decomposition of the human body is its autolysis, i.e. loneliness. With the help of enzymes, our friendly cells try to break down the molecules into the smallest possible compounds, which they will be able to use. Of course, during our lifetime this process is conducted under strict control, because in spite of everything our cells like us and do not want to hurt us. Therefore, when the level of these enzymes is controlled during life, so after death it escapes from the chains of enslavement and the enzymes flood our whole body. At this stage, the fluid penetrates between the layers of skin and simply relaxes them, making our hands similar to the rubber pads on our fingers. After some time, the skin begins to descend, which in a funeral environment is referred to as the “slide”. With time, the skin no longer descends only from fingers and hands, but the stage of tearing whole patches of skin off the human body begins.
So let’s move on to the less pleasant part of these initial processes. Yes, yes, it was the most pleasant part above, so you still have time to stop reading. But if you stay with me, the next step is LARVES. Oooo so that they feed in every opening of the human body, and especially in those from which they can easily get inside. So their favourite habitats are eyes, lips, open wounds and genitals. And the mouth is probably their favourite place, because it allows them to get into the brain – the greatest treat of any larvae.
Do bacteria eat us after death?
However, returning to the liquid that skillfully stratified our skin. What happens to it next? He begins his journey through our body. Of course, he does not travel alone, because he is accompanied by cohorts of bacteria for which the feast begins…. a really great feast. It is worth emphasizing that these are the same bacteria that in our lifetime were stuck in the intestinal tract, lungs, which were our polite friends, and now they draw from our death. The end of sentiments, what happens next?
Bacterial strains experience an incredible idyll, feed on the benefits of a disarmed immune system, remnants of auto-digested membranes and everything that floods them from all over the world. And, as we know, in such favorable conditions, every population wants to grow. And this is what is happening. Bacteria are already found everywhere in really countless numbers.
So the first stage is autolysis, crowds of bacteria and larvae getting into our centre. It’s getting nicer and nicer, and that’s not the end yet.
The next step is a great bloating! And, of course, all this thanks to our friends – the bacteria that eat, digest and excrete. They can no longer eat what we eat, so they eat us. And this is a clever creature. However, they still produce intestinal gas, which is the final effect of bacterial metabolism. And the next sad information is that after death a person is not able to expel this gas, so he lies in his abdominal cavity (because the intestines can hardly be mentioned anymore) and the belly grows. And here a curiosity appears, because it may (but not necessarily) happen that the Dead HUMANS SHOULD BEARS. After all, every gas must escape somewhere. It is also worth mentioning at this stage that every part of the body that can only come out on top – language, mouth, genitals. Eyes don’t, the eyes have long since surfaced.
The flatulence stage usually lasts about a week and ends with a triumphant rupture. And then the third stage begins – already the last one – i.e. the stage of decay and decomposition. Probably the least pleasant, because this is the moment when we disappear forever.
Did you get out of the dust and turn around in the dust?
The intensive activity of bacteria leads to the fact that our tissues go into a liquid phase. Yes, at the very end we simply dissolve, dematerialize and soak into the ground. The least persistent are the lungs and parts of the gastrointestinal tract (because this is where most bacteria are found during life), and the brain quickly surrenders, which is poured out through the ears and leaves the skull through the mouth in the form of bubbles.
And when it comes to human muscles and muscles, which many men do so much in the gym, they are eaten by beetles. Of course, carnivorous beetles. When it comes to skin, it happens differently. Sometimes it is eaten, sometimes not, sometimes it dries and mummifies, a real lottery.
After conservation, it runs much slower and perhaps less drastic, but in spite of all that this is the end that awaits us – we will penetrate the ground, so we will never actually disappear from here. 🙂 And with this positive accent I am finishing today’s entry.
