1. Can you have an arch in nature?
Sure, happens all the time. Not through biology/evolution/etc, though. Lots of geologic arches happen through geology.
2. Can people turn into pure energy?
Well, what is "pure energy"? I guess e= mc2 means you could, but there wouldn't be anything of people left, it would just be "pure energy".
The question should be more like can the information system/sequence/algorythm making up a person be translated into another form independent of matter. This is a broader question and impinges on theology, but still has scientific roots. Right now the answer is who knows?
