If life is materially based, then why don't we see it springing from matter in the natural world? And why can't we create life from matter in our laboratories?
We may think we are attracted to the beautiful body of a woman, but actually it is the spark of life which attracts us.
When we are attracted to a person, what we are really attracted to is the particle of life, i.e., atma. Without the presence of this atma, without life, you see a body for what it really is: just a hunk of blood, guts, flesh, bones, teeth, stool, mucus, hair, urine, bile, and so on - a bag of chemicals. The monetary value of this bag of chemicals called the material body is about $9.
