Death is death. Once your dead, that's it, it's over

How often have you wondered what lies beyond life? What exactly happens after you breathe yur last? Is there actually a heaven and hell as written in many books? Does your soul leave your body? Do you meet you loved ones who’ve already died? While there are millions of books narrating what afterlife is all about, here is a man who claims to have died twice for two minutes each time and shared his experience on Reddit.

In an ‘Ask Me Anything’ session on the website, he fielded questions on his experience. The first time he ‘died’ was in a motorcycle accident. He said, “immediately after the accident my body shut down from the pain and physical damages on my body. No pulse, no breathing and no consciousness”

The second time he claimed he experienced death was after a surgery when his respiratory system shut down. “I was in agonizing pain after surgery so I received loads of pain killers. The pain, coupled with an immense amount of pain killers, caused my pulse to drop to around 10bpm and my respiratory system shut down,” he wrote.

He answered hundreds of questions that people threw at him and his post went viral in 2015 but recently a user shared it again and it’s been doing the rounds on social media. Here are the questions he answered.

How’s the sensation of death?

“I had no idea, it was just black emptiness. No thoughts, no consciousness, nothing.

“Both times I was just “not there”. It was just all black. I would describe it as when you take a nap. A short nap with no dream, you wake up and it feels like you’ve been sleeping a long time, when in reality it’s only been about 15 minutes.

“The only reason I know is because the doctors were obligated to share the information with me. “So yeah, you were dead for a couple of minutes, just FYI” hahaha.

“So if the doctors wouldn’t have said anything I would’ve just thought that I took a dreamless nap.”

Do you feel you ‘experienced’ this time of black emptiness or it’s the memory of the ‘blank’ space?

“It was definitely not just a gap. Much like a dreamless nap, you don’t just wake up and feel like time just jumped ahead. You know that you’ve been asleep for a while. At the same time, you can’t really remember experiencing anything at all, unless you had a dream.

“So yes and no. I experienced something, and that something was nothing.”

Were the two experiences different from each other?

The two experiences were exactly the same. The only difference is that the accident one, I remember the seconds before a lot more clear. The second time, I was in so much pain that I wasn’t really fully aware of my surroundings if you understand what I mean.

Reaction when you were told you were dead?

“Well my first reaction was ‘Omfg, that’s fucking cool! Now I can tell my friends that I’ve been dead and come back to life etc’ but most of those thoughts were the morhpine talking.

“Then reality sets in, and I realized that ‘wow, I could’ve been dead right now.’ That’s when I started to understand how serious my situation really was.

“I definitely fear it less. I know now that death is nothing worse than sleeping. When you die, you just stop existing, nothing to worry about!”

Is there a heaven and hell?

“I have always been an atheist, but I have always had a part of me that hoped there was a God or Heaven or something greater than us. I mean, who wouldn’t want there to be a Heaven?

“I am still an atheist, and now I know that there is no such thing as God or Heaven. At least not for me. My reasoning behind that is no God would ever put a person and family through such a experience.

“I am an Atheist, and always will be. But I believe that your belief is your belief. The only thing we can share is our own experiences and let people make up their own mind. People need to stop forcing their own beliefs onto others.”

“Death is death. Once your dead, that’s it, it’s over,” he concluded.
