also regarding this, if you don't like the "power of love" explanation, I kinda thought of it as the avatar death not equating to person death. We know that due to the 10-second-rez item existing, that the actual player's death happens sometime after their avatar, so you can assume that the system then has to take care of the checks for "avatar's been dead long enough, kill their player". However, if the system has killed itself in a haphazard way, it may never actually trigger that in time, inconsequentially deleting their avatars prior to the killing, along with whatever code would have done the killing. Unless that check was being done by the NervGear along with the other reasons of death, in which case you'd be kinda boned.
but, in the context of the show, yeah they pretty much just say "power of love".

it's actually a pretty fair length for 2 years, also considering malnutrition. And if they're only keeping them oh-so-slightly alive (which I think is alluded to somewhere?) I doubt they'd go through with anti-atrophy procedures either.
