there's really not much literature on the subject except this old article in french from 1975 persee.fr/doc/arch_0044-8613_1
but ultimately, in my culture we believe that:
- the spirit and the body are two separate entities that form a single one
- sleep is the domain of spirits and allows you to talk with people you love
- (CW Death) this is why Malagasy have a second burial called famadihana, which is meant to recall the ambiroa, the spirit of the deceased, to never forget your ancestors

did you know? Madagascar literally means "Land of the ancestors". Never forget those who came before you. For the good they've done. But mostly for the bad they've done.
