At the heart of Russian cosmism are the ideas of the relationship between cosmic and earthly processes, the search for a person's place in space and the concept of human immortality.
The return of Lenin's body to life is the conceptual outcome of Russian cosmism, which has never been achieved, as are many of the desired results of space exploration programs.
According to Boris Groys, Lenin's body in the mausoleum is a symbolic body. It is social: ‘He is exactly the same simple ordinary man, Lenin, who in some bodily sense is equal to us, to everyone else.’ If he's some space junk, then so we are. His body acts as a means of communication between the artifacts of the era and modern society.
