Why is Simons dead body carried out to the sea in lord of the flies?

The white light is also a symbol of him rising up into heaven. (this is what my English teacher told me, anyway)

Why is Simons dead body carried out to sea in terms of glorification?

Simon is spiritual and a Christ figure. His death is an allusion to Jesus being sacrificed. It also shows how much Simon was connected to the spiritual world, and that he was meant to be a sacrifice to nature. The sea, a part of nature, is taking his body because he was meant to be a part of nature. Acting as a halo, "the strange attendant creatures, with their fiery eyes and trailing vapors, busied themselves round his head." (Golding 154)

What happened to the parachutist in Lord of the Flies?

After Simon had freed the tangled parachute lines from the rocks the body of the parachutist was eventually moved by the strong wind during the storm and was carried over the jungle, across the beach and the lagoon and finally out to sea. Simon's body was lifted from the beach by the incoming tide and it too eventually drifted out towards the open sea, accompanied by 'inquisitive bright creatures.'
