That's like in english.

When your father (or your captain) has just died, and his dead body is lying
in front of you, what would you say?
"There he is." or "There it is."?
  First would be referring to his mind, his person (vavwI'), and second is
his body, his corps (vavwIj).
  To me, that's about the same distinguishing as -wIj and -wI'.
