Tactics have been used against the person. Manipulation of ego and persona. Fear and injustice against the body and the identity. This is all just an extension of one limited body-mind impressing upon the limited body-mind of another on the same level. None of these actions can actually affect the spirit but can only claw and attempt to degrade the outer shell.
The spirit is always above-all on this level of physicality. The spirit always prevails and is undying.
The body and ego can be insulted but the spirit is eternal.
