[Annsge] Does the 7th Internal Monad always mean physical death?
[M Entity] No, but only rarely. Those who transit a Soul Age within one lifetime will go through a psychological “death” of sorts, and during the process, despite being alive, the 7th Internal Monad would apply. By extension, a new “Birth” would also result. However, in these rare cases of Soul Age transition within a lifetime, there is also an overall “arc” of the 7 Internal Monads that remain within the context of physical aging.

[Mike_Val] Can you tell us about what happens within the first 72 hours of death?
[M_Entity] Physically, or metaphysically, Mike?
[Mike_Val] Metaphysically, or both if you wish to elaborate.
[M_Entity] The first “72 hours” after death become quite meaningless in terms of hours. To the individuals still extant around the fragment who has died, this passage of time is more literal. In other words, what happens in the 72 hours after a fragment’s death may not be experienced by the fragment, itself, until much “later.”
