    Why do we have such love of the dead bodies of our friends/relations? After all it's just a shell, in the animal kingdom most animals eat their dead. What do you make of it all?

    Its a psycological taboo. We do it out of reverence for the person and to get a ease of suffering in a persons mind/ heart.

    Its because unlike animals, we have complex emotions and memories.
