If Your Life Really Does Flash Before Your Eyes, What Will You See Before You Die?
According to a new study from Haddasah University in Jerusalem via the Telegraph your life really does flash before your eyes when you die. They say the part of the brain that holds your memories is the last to go. The people they used for the study had near death experiences. They do clarify that it's not like the movies. The memories are not in chronological order.
That is a lot to think about. I mean I am sure we would like to select the memories that flash before our eyes when we die. You wanna see the birth of your children, maybe your wedding or a major accomplishment. What you don't want to see is the time you drank a twelve pack of Schlitz and fell off a rock in the woods.
I guess it makes sense though. The memories my brain hangs onto now, while alive are not cherry picked by me as far as I can tell. I don't know why I can remember every smell, sound and sight from certain moments in life but cannot remember my phone number some days. Even worse there are what I consider monumental scenes in my life that I cannot remember one detail.
So what will you see? I'll probably see a montage of the worst public bathrooms I have ever been in. That's a S%%# deal if you know what I am talking about.
