And that's what makes this such a powerful episode. There is no right answer.
Me, I'm sticking with the view that the very fact that Tuvok and Neelix were able to be separated at all, proves that they were never dead. Death is, by definition, permanent. All instances where a character is supposedly brought back from the dead - I don't view that as true death. So that colors my thinking here.
