Life Is Immortal—Now!

Recently a popular magazine featured a colorful full-page photograph of a human heart held in the gloved hand of a surgeon. It was about to be transplanted to the chest cavity of a patient in an attempt to save or prolong his life.

Considering this picture, I observed that there was no life in the heart itself. It was but a red and mindless mass of inanimate matter. How then, I thought, could this handful of flesh give or add something it did not have? The answer had to be that life is something independent of matter, that real life is spiritually mental, not contained in the organs of a mortal body.
