Using this spell, you determine whether a creature is alive or dead. A creature in a coma, trance, suspended animation, or even masked by a false death spell can be detected by this spell. This spell does not work on undead or creatures that were never alive (such as constructs).

The spell can penetrate barriers, but 1 foot of stone, 1 inch of common metal, a thin sheet of lead, or 3 feet of wood or dirt blocks it.
