When you think that you’re about to die

When you’re faced with death, people say that your life flashes right before your eyes.  But, that’s not true.  You are consumed by nothingness.  Everything and nothing happens at the same time.  Your body is aware of what’s happening around you, while your brain shuts down.  Your vision is gone and all you see is black nothingness.  You start to wonder if this is what your life has lead up to.  All the images and thoughts bounce around in your head, but you can’t process them.  You are temporarily brain dead.  It’s like a flashback, only that it went forward and you feel that you’ve skipped a part of your life.  The pain from the burn in your left arm triggers some sort of switch as you remember the instant that you lost control.  After that, it’s just black.  Nothing makes sense.  Physics seems to be the only thing that holds any truth.  For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.  Some of you might argue that that is called karma.

  1. It’s a perfect combination of beauty and mind-bending; of actions and ideas; of brain-candy and feeling-tone. I loved it.
