Life, aka the soul or the life force or whatever else you wish to call it, is a form of energy that we do not understand which is held in a materal container ( like water in a cup). Death is the release of that energy ( like pouring out the water in the cup) the container usually remains ( for a time) But the energy that it held is gone. like a cup of water if the container is damaged the contents escape and go elsewhere and even if the cup is Not damaged the water will eventually evaporate leaving the container empty.

Death is the cessation of your Ka/Ba/Ankh/consciousness/soul/id or whatever. The questions and arguments occur around whether your consciousness continues to exist in some form after your body is dead. I'm not going to stray into that region, but I think it reasonable to say that when your core being has gone, then that is death. Hmm, perhaps as there is brain death and clinical death, perhaps there could be body death and soul death, I don't no.
