You want a physicist to speak at your funeral. You want the physicist to talk to your grieving  family about the conservation of energy, so they will understand that your energy has not died. You  want the physicist to remind your sobbing mother about the first law of thermodynamics; that no  energy gets created in the universe, and none is destroyed. You want your mother to know that all  your energy, every vibration, every Btu of heat, every wave of every particle that was her beloved  child remains with her in this world. You want the physicist to tell your weeping father that amid  energies of the cosmos, you gave as good as you got. And at one point you'd hope that the physicist would step down from the pulpit and walk to your  brokenhearted spouse there in the pew and tell him that all the photons that ever bounced off your  face, all the particles whose paths were interrupted by your smile, by the touch of your hair,  hundreds of trillions of particles, have raced off like children, their ways forever changed by you. And as your widow rocks in the arms of a loving family, may the physicist let her know that all the  photons that bounced from you were gathered in the particle detectors that are her eyes, that those  photons created within her constellations of electromagnetically charged neurons whose energy will  go on forever. And the physicist will remind the congregation of how much of all our energy is given off as heat.  There may be a few fanning themselves with their programs as he says it. And he will tell them that  the warmth that flowed through you in life is still here, still part of all that we are, even as we who  mourn continue the heat of our own lives. And you'll want the physicist to explain to those who loved you that they need not have faith; indeed,  they should not have faith. Let them know that they can measure, that scientists have measured  precisely the conservation of energy and found it accurate, verifiable and consistent across space  and time. You can hope your family will examine the evidence and satisfy themselves that the  science is sound and that they'll be comforted to know your energy's still around. According to the  law of the conservation of energy, not a bit of you is gone; you're just less orderly. Amen. ­Aaron Freeman.
