7 Minutes


If you have ever been in a near-death experience, you may have seen your life “flash” before your eyes. I’ve asked several people about this. They said that it was like they went through their whole life in a second. That’s not too far fetched. Your brain likes to avoid stress, so that it does not have to deal with facing death. So if your brain was to think you were going to die, it would go to the easiest way to escape: memory. So when it comes close to the end, your brain turns on every memory you ever had.

The brain will also stay alive for about 7 minutes after you die, provided your brain is intact. So if you have 7 minutes and you can experience your whole life in one second, that’s 60 lives per minute. 420 lives in 7 minutes. That’s a lot of time and a lot of experiences with death.

although it mayfeel like a second, its like a dream. for you the second is true, but for everyone else, it would be like you were asleep for maybe 3-4 mins. so really, that 7 mins could just be one life time. 10/10 pasta, would definitely recomend to all readers.

this remind s me of a theory me and my brother thought about, our life flashes before our eyes when we die, but who says we are currently experiencing that flash, deja vu when you realize all this happened before. I recently moved into a new house, but i remember being in the place long before.

It is so weird… it kind of proves a theory I have where your energy transfers into another one’s soul. a soul is just the energy that keeps the body moving. very interesting.
