After you die, they say that your brain is still active for the following seven minutes. In those seven minutes, many believe you experience and relive your life over again in some form of an illusion, a kind of dream. People end their lives because the don’t wanna be alive anymore, but maybe it also is because they don’t feel alive. Maybe they do it for that one moment of feeling, relief from the numbness. Maybe it is for those special seven minutes, that for a short time, they have the opportunity to experience those memories once again before they are forever gone.
Yesterday I was outside looking at stars and I hadn’t done it in months. When I laid there under the sky filled with stars, it felt like I was dreaming. For once, I was living in the moment. And I actually felt alive that moment. I started thinking about death somehow. If it is as peaceful as being under a sky filled with stars. I don’t know, yet.
