NOBODY really knows what happens to your body after you physically exhale your last breath, apart from the fact it starts to decay. We know that there is still some brain activity for a short period of time after the heart stops beating, but that's about it.

Some relatively new research has revealed that up to 1000 genes continue to be active up to 4 days after the body has died. Some of these genes are only seen in the developmental embryonic stage and come back to life after you die.

Watch the full video below.
