So /x/ I always hear people saying having a brush with death will change you, and make you get a glimpse of the afterlife and Yada Yada, and over the summer I busted my head open lost 3 teeth from the impact and was blacked out for 4 hours but saw nothing but blackness, no hallucinations, no light, no god, no satan, no heaven, no hell. Just complete uninterrupted blackness. I'm not a religious man, honestly I despise the idea of a religion, i just dont get it, but I digress, is there a reason why I saw nothing, is there anything beyond this world, what are your expirences? Did I not see anything because deep down I just don't care about the afterlife?
I almost fell off a cliff once and had the "life flashes before your eyes" experience. In a split second I thought about my parents, siblings, friends, school, my bedroom etc etc
I think it's the brain looking for a solution to whats about to happen. It does a quick scan to try and find a similar scenario to the one you're in, in an attempt to save you from doom.
Meh, everything effects everyone differently. I've had many brushes with death and one NDE, guess what happened. Nothing, nothing happened, because that shit doesn't matter. Live life, enjoy what you can and then die, you'll be better for it.
The blackness, if your injury was NDE quality or were in fact dead, means your fate is in a state of limbo. You have not been evil yet you have not earned the graces of the light.
Donate a can of food now and then
I had a seizure once from a bad mix of wine and synthetic marijuana (never touched the stuff again after that.) I, too, experienced a lonely black void of nothingness. A friend of mine reported similar things. It honestly kind of scared me to know that all there is after death is a void.
>People ITT are comparing blacking out after a head injury, OD'ing on drugs for a brief period etc to actual near-death experiences in which the person having the NDE was actually dead for several minutes
Yall some fucking retards.
I'll try to describe it as best as I can. Friends saw me fall forward and go stiff as a board. I was cold and clamy to the touch. Before I fell forward, I seemed to experience a loop of conversations around me, which I think is a symptom of a seizure.
From my perspective, I could not see or feel anything. It was completely black and I heard nothing except my own voice. I remember the idea crossing my mind that this was hell: absolutely nothing, for eternity, and I started yelling. I wanted to escape. But in what I now call the void, all perception of time is lost, because there is nothing to measure it by. But with no sense of taste, touch, sight, and only hearing your own thoughts, I found to be terrifying. I ended up coming out of it on the way to the hospital.
For some background, I am an extrovert with Major Depressive Disorder, so I don't do well with loneliness. But to me, it was the most terrifying thing in my life.
OP i had a dream that i died, and i heard Jesus quote christian bible scripture to me, and then being dead, the only thing i can do is pray
i do not think that death is the end by any means. i feel that God has even told me although i will die i will live
one time when i was dreaming, i had a dream of total peacefulness, and i saw a man on a mountain i believed to be Jesus telling me that i was on the beginning of my journey after death to the "kingdom of heaven"
I think it would be preferable to burning and in agonizing pain for all of eternity. Lonely but a lot better than that. Some would not think so.
It's always nice to think of a pleasant afterlife, by no means stop. I don't know anymore than you do about this.
