      It is believed that people can have visions or hallucinations that will match whatever they believe in when they are dying. For some it is Jesus, for others it is nothing or memories. It is interesting to think about that when dying or being close to it, your brain will just make up whatever makes it feels the most reassured. The real question is why?

      • The real question is why?

        good question

        maybe the brain still try to “get a grip” to reality it was once familiar, while the body still in “alive state” before

        that is until it can no longer maintain its own “state of living”, as is running off life fuel

        Maybe our perception of this as positive is cultural? Ancient people might have survived near death experiences, and it shaped our society to the point that we believe being reassured while dying is good. We aren’t angered or frightened by our brains lying to us in this particular situation.

          Well it is not necessarily always a positive experience. There have been instances where it scared them so bad that they changed they way they lived. Like they believe they had been sent to hell.

      Well, you were not unconciouss. I heard often that a near death experience was more like a DMT trip or smth. Maybe its also fake.

      I don’t really care if there’s a higher being, an afterlife, or otherwise.

      I’m still scared of the idea of nihilism, but eventually I’ll have to prepare myself and at least do something that makes my existence worthwhile.
