Life-death cycle

Sun birth death model
Overview of the 3500BC Egyptian life-death rebirth cycle of the sun (Ra) born out of the chaos waters of beginning (Nun).
In cycles, the life-death cycle posits that entities are “born”, at a certain initial point in time, then travel through a passage of existence, during a certain window of time, then “die” at a certain final point in time, a process that can be either take place once, reoccur a second time, or reoccur continually.

The life-death cycle was a theory conceived in circa 3500BC in the ancient Egyptian city of Heliopolis, “the city of the sun”, wherein it was postulated that each day the sun, called Ra, was “born”, out of a mound called Nun, then carried though the sky by a bird (or solar boat), then died each night as it went below the horizon.

Ra theology
This model formed the basis for what would become Ra theology, and the later derivative "resurrection" (coming back to "life" of the "dead" in the same body) religions: Ab-ra-ham-ic faiths (53 percent) and "reincarnation" (coming back to "life" of the "dead" in a new body) religions B-ra-hma-ic faiths (20 percent). [1] In Hinduism, this eternal cycle came to be called Samsara; in Christianity, the one type rebirth cycle came to be called judgment day. [2] These views dominated the mindsets of over 72 percent of the world, and is typically the version existence told to children at a young age.

Carnot cycle
In 1824, the Carnot cycle was introduced by French engineer Sadi Carnot as the basic heat cycle for all working bodies of the universe. This cycle model formed the basis for what would latter become the laws of thermodynamics, as penned in 1865 by German physicist Rudolf Clausius. Into the 1930s, following the publication of Gilbert Lewis' Thermodynamics and the Free Energy of Chemical Substances (1923) and Edward Guggenheim's Modern Thermodynamics and the Methods of Willard Gibbs (1933), the subject of chemical thermodynamics had solidified.

Defunct theory of life
With the development of chemical thermodynamics and the concept of irreversible reaction cycles, it soon thereafter became apparent that there were inconsistencies between the Egyptian-based life-death cycle model of human existence and the chemical thermodynamics irreversible cycles model of human existence. This resulted in the 2009 defunct theory of life, initiated by American electrochemical engineer Libb Thims, i.e. that humans are reactive "molecules", created by cyclical heat driven chemical synthesis (not by evolution), and that molecules cannot be defined as being "alive", any more than a hydrogen atom can be considered alive.
