It might mean the death of the human spirit, becoming lifeless, or it might mean the human spirit being 'dead to' something, like we are "dead to sin" in Romans 6:2 & 1 Peter 2:24.

I used to believe that the human spirit literally died when a man became accountable for his sin before God, but now I'm not so sure...

Romans 7:9 For I was alive without the law once: but when the commandment came, sin revived, and I died.

Ephesians 2:1 And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins;

As Bro. George pointed out in another thread, the human spirit looks like it is our life-force, so if it literally died then our body would die too.
