I wish to add some clarification to my previous statement.
When I said that nothing that is conscious can die - that is relevant to nly that, that is conscious that it is conscious. Only to Self - conscious beings.
Everyhting has some level of Consciousness in it, as Consciousness is what makes everything tick. Or, what in bible is referred to as I am all, I am alpha and omega. Everything is of god and, such, is god.

But everything that is not Self conscious, is only conscious as its function.

Now, those can be destroyed or die. Rocks, or trees, or ameba, or bird or a dolphen.. anything that shows even very high signs of intelligence, but is not Self conscious - can, and will die and continue on the eternal path of progression.
Now, some non Self conscious entities may possess high level of consciousness, resulting in high functionality. Elementals are that way. Most likely, jinn.

I am getting suspicious that "angels" may be of the same nature. Very advanced, non Self conscious beings, created for a specific purpose.

ukrkoz,
Everything and every being was created for a specific purpose.
Humans and jinn are self-conscious and have freewill but also are subject to accountability. They will be judged after their death and resurrection.
