So I'm reading a book called Zodiac and it had me wondering, what does death feel like? Is a quick death as painful as a slow death? When you die in your sleep, do you feel it at all? If you get shot in the temple do you feel the bullet pierce your body? What are your thoughts on the subject?
"Death would not be "peaceful." It would simply just be."
I totally agree with that.
I have come extremely close to dying, and I don't remember a damn thing. However I do not remember anything about my situation. But long story short I hit my head REALLY hard, my brain began to swell, my body started to shut down, and I started loose consciousness and die, I wasn't lucid, I was just dying, if i wasn't found in time I would have died. No life flashing before my eyes, just death. The end.
It reminds how you can't remember the second before you fall asleep? Theres nothing. Just death.
Well yesterday when I was having my blood drawn, I slowly began to lose my senses, sense of touch, hearing.. it was like I was slowly falling into oblivion but I was conscious of what was happening.. that's what I think it would feel like.
Death is death, when you die, you die, you wont even know it, no one ever does. As for slow death, you may or may not know you're going to die, but when you do, you don't even realize it. And where you go, no one knows that either, and there is no proof of where you actually go.
This is kind of my own idea of death. If you're dying slowly is the worst. Not only physical pain, but your soul is getting out of your body, switching to another dimension [in between of life and death].
Dying fast; You physically don't feel anything.. But it is awful for your soul cause it shockingly switches to another dimension and I'm sure it feels horrible.
In the Tibetan Book of the Dead, it's described as an orgasmic feeling, which I find interesting and I think is truthful.
I think if you've ever passed out/fallen unconscious for any reason or fallen asleep, you can kind of imagine how it happens. It's just like that- A transformation from one state to another.
Sometimes it's agonizing and slow, and miserably painful and sickening, Your body feels like crap and your mind keeps running nonsense until you wake up groggy and feeling like crap with a headache the next morning.
Other times, it's like a beautiful feeling of lifting out of the body and reaching that ultimate, formless freedom where you can fly and you're unbound by arms, and legs.
And sometimes, it's just like nothing at all, and when you wakeup you don't remember falling asleep and you're really confused about what the fuck happened and why you're on the back porch with coffee all over your ass, pencil-shavings in your eye, and a half-drawn portrait under your face.
I've had a couple of NDE's and they were different every time. Once, I saw a big light and some silouhettes that looked bluish like a 'sea of souls' marching toward something- very Alex grey-esque.
Another time, i just saw nothing and was really shocked and confused by my eyes popping open, heart leaping in my chest and gasping for breath.
So who's to say exactly what death feels like, except for the one experiencing it?
Well i'm recovering from Double Pneumonia that nearly killed me,and i;ll give you an experience i had while I was at my worst with it.
The night before I went to the hospital I dreamt I was in this dark space and this voice said you have your choice you can pass on,leave this body and this illness behind,or you can stay and go through suffering while you are dealing with it and get better,it's your choice.
I chose to stay,and this voice said well then yuo are going to wake up,and experience what death is like and die but be totally aware of everything at the same time.
With that I woke up,i was lying on my side,i could see the wall,but i could move nothing,not even my eyes,then suddenly i started taking rapid short breaths and the thought "I'm going to die entered my mind" it wasn't long after that I suddenly stopped breathing,there wasn't a thought going through my mind and yet I was still aware of things. I don't know how long I was like that then I started breathing again in short rapid breathes and was able to move.
I believe in away I felt what it was like to die because I believe i did expire,and for me it was totally peaceful.
It depends how you die. My close to death was druring the birthof my youngest child. It was blackness with no pain, no emotion and no stress. I didnt want to leave. I forgot about everthing didnt care about anything. Then I was reminded of my children. I came back for them.
I was nearly strangled to death as a kid other than being chocked I felt nothing until I woke up on the floor. I struggled and then passed out. My older brother thought his friend had killed me he was freaking out. I would say you just slip out of consciousness. I cut myself badly and lost enough blood that I felt a bit odd but not as bad as when I gave blood. After giving blood I was very light headed and had to lay there awhile.
Im just saying that after being strangled I didn't feel anything therefore if you were strangled to death I think you would just be dead there wouldn't be much to feel. After losing blood awhile I felt a bit sick and dizzy. I have heard bleeding out is not a good feeling at all. I don't think death has a feeling really or at least as someone said I don't think it's much different than falling asleep. My friend flat lined several times during an operation he doesn't remember it. I have watched 2 relatives die my grandfather was on drugs because he was in a lot of pain the other was just old. They just looked as though they fell asleep I think it would be different had it been a heart attack or something painful.
- Crap of the street for quite sometime if you've got problems in your personal-impersonal cupid nature (TAO) at the time of the passing. It's heavy buried rage and ambivalence that disrupts your natural general well-being as if a rhythmic programming were deep within, in fact that's the case and you do not have to have any particular reasons, it's your soul-rhythm.
- I Know this because I know the technicalities that makes beings be beings in the after-life.
* The spiritualists give you nothing concerning what makes beings technically solid, and the most active energy within and about all beings that survives dead. Inventive consciousness people need my gathered info as to what you're left with anywhere. Spiritualists give me milky-gay-crap in the face which is disgusting to me sometimes.
- All I have to do is if it could be possible to send you a snap-shot as an example to pick up some solid soil off the ground in the far-side of life and ask you, 'so why isn't it possible to have mechanical technology in the far-side of life?'.
Why do I say that it's always a hello despite of anything or any conditions when animals pass into spirit in their forms later to recover? Because they are not concerned with on the table facts concerning time and place as humans do. Figure out how it could have been for humans after passing thousands of years ago, punky doodles everywhere, only a small percentage were able to reason and make any sense of time and place - Pushed around to reincarnate?
