A thought occurred to me as I reflected on your analogy. Electricity cannot be breathed. The electricity is your spirit. the shell of the bulb is your body, and the air within the bulb is your soul. When the death of the bulb occurs, the bulb is broken. As you may know, elecricity is energy and energy cannot be destroyed. It can only alter it's form. So the bulb is in a lamp that was energized, that someone knocked over. Animals are not spiritual, and therefore they do not possess a spirit. The lamp that they represent was not energized at the time of the mishap.
