Do not stand at my grave and weep 
I am not there. I do not sleep. 
I am a thousand winds that blow. 
I am the diamond glints on snow. 
I am the sunlight on ripened grain. 
I am the gentle autumn rain. 
When you awaken in the morning’s hush 
I am the swift uplifting rush 
Of quiet birds in circled flight. 
I am the soft stars that shine at night. 
Do not stand at my grave and cry; 
I am not there. I did not die. 

– Mary Elizabeth Frye

    Most Near Death Experiences (NDEs) that I’ve heard about talk about an immense peace that they feel. Some say they’ve seen their own body from above and knew what was going on around them even though they were supposed to be ‘dead’.

    I had a NDE two years ago, I was struck by a car I felt no pain in that very moment I floated above my body and watched everyone surrounding me. It was the best feeling in the world time had felt like it stopped I was in a different realm the spirit world absolutely mind blowing experience that I will never forget. I now have no fear of death what so ever.

    NDE are the last chemical releases of the brain before or nearing death. It’s all just part of the process. It’s a means to an end; not an end in itself. “Nothingness” is the end in itself. I can’t possibly imagine any sensations/awareness would be possible once the chemical/electrical grid in the brain stops. I hope I’m wrong. ok, ok ok ,you become one with the universe. Better?

      Yeah NDE is like the brain saying. “Ok, we are about to die, so lets give it our all!” And it makes dying all happy and peaceful ’til the end.

      One could argue that although that is true – the brain takes about 10 minutes to die – that also means that time can feel expanded for the individual undergoing death.

      In the real world you base your “time” on the movement and distance of mass. If, for example, it takes you 10 minutes to walk somewhere, it would only take the brain a split second to simply imagine that distance and construct an image that depicts the journey, it doesn’t have to actually “wait” for mass to move through space/time and have the information relayed to the brain through the senses – it makes all of that up on its own.

      10 minutes of brain activity could theoretically produce an imagined existence for billions of imagined years before the consciousness would click off too.

      No hippy new age stuff, its just a theory.

    Nice job stealing all of these quotes from a Reddit thread without any of the original posters’ consent, adding some stupid graphic, and then putting them on a website with a crap load of ads.
