So the earthly body once again becomes container and content. The shape varies from a genotype based on variants of: age, date of birth, date of death, male or female, location. The size and its weight varies depending on the subject; The water represents the 60-65% of the weight of a human.

On average, a corpse produces about 2.4 kg of ash, with a slightly higher weight in the masculine gender.
