It has been a question that has bothered me for a long time now and I would like to discuss my thoughts and feelings on the subject. I want to know, do we know or feel anything when we die? Here are my thoughts on the subject…
” Death— the last sleep? No the final awakening.” Wrote Walter Scott.
Death is seen as the end, and i think that it is- but only in this life. We die to begin another life in my view, so the above quote by Walter Scott is inspiring for me, and reduces that fear i have about dying- and i am hoping it will for others as well.

When we drift into death in our sleep do we realize that we are truly dying? Or do we just think that it just another sleep? I have always been told, rightly or wrongly, that we do not feel anything and we are unaware of dying, but as i get older and see death more in my life, it really has started to bother me whether in fact we do know what is happening and if we feel anything.
Now, i may be barking up the wrong tree on this matter so if i am, i won’t take offence in you pointing it out.
From a medical point of view when we die and are officially declared as dead, it means that our heart has stopped beating and thus results in us becoming brain dead. So how long really does it take from being deprived of oxygen when our heart stops and our brain becoming dead? Seconds, minutes or even hours?
How come that some people on rare occasions have actually woken up in the mortuary? Is it because the cold has brought them back to life or another reason? Would they have felt anything if they weren’t truly dead?
I’m asking these questions because like i said it worries me, and i am interested in the subject, plus it is one that i do not understand. Some people really don’t think about what will happen because they believe that once you are dead, you are dead, which may of course be true.
I suppose you only really know for sure when death chooses you, don’t you think?
If you have any comments on the issue, it would be great to hear what you think about it, after all i am not sure many of us know what really happens.
