Death is the termination of all biological functions that sustain an organism. Phenomena which commonly bring about death include biological aging (senescence), predation, malnutrition, disease, suicide, homicide, starvation, dehydration, and accidents or trauma resulting in terminal injury.
There is no man who has not wondered at least once what it feels like and what is really happening to us and our mind in the moment of death. Now thanks to chemists experts we know exactly what we can feel- and why some people can see the big light when they experience clinical death.
If you love horror movies, then you know the feeling of fear that you have while watching how the killer, carrying an ax in his hand, chasing his victim. Well, according to scientists from the American Society of Chemists, and if you find yourself in such a situation, your brain would react much the same.
This society has made a video in which he explained in detail exactly how we felt when we, for example, chase a crazy killer with an ax.
Everything starts with a fear, which has a purpose- to prepare you to react when you are in danger. This affects the part of the brain called the thalamus, which is very sensitive to stress. With further chemical reaction in the brain we come to a state of “fight or flight” for what we would like to thank the hypothalamus.
In order to prepare your body ready for action, the hypothalamus stimulates the adrenal gland to secrete adrenalin, and adrenalin then goes to the liver and stimulates the secretion of sugar in the blood. Altogether, this gives your body strength you never even dreamed to have.
However, if all of those powers are not enough to escape from the killer with an ax, your next reaction would be screaming. Just like in horror movies, screaming is inevitable when we are in such a dangerous situation. It is interesting that people do not perceive the screams with the same part of the brain and speech. When you hear someone screaming, goes from your ears directly to the part of the brain called amigdula.
“Like, the one who screams in some way wants to to share a terrible situation in their brain, but with you” according to a video.
However, even the screaming did not help; the killer got you, the next thing you feel is pain. And If your read the book 1000 Questions and 1000 Answers, then you know that pain is not the same as the touch, and has a completely different purpose. The pain sends a message to your brain that what had happened should not happen again. Meaning: something bad had happened.
And really happened. The axe ends up in your neck. What is next?
At first appear clinical death- the heart stops working and you stop breathing. In this moment the brain is still working- and then the real magic happens. In fact, recent studies have shown that the brain decline in hyper condition of perceptual neuro-activity. Meaning- it works like crazy. That’s why scientists say that some people who have survived clinical death described that they had saw the light, or some other things.
However, if the in the area there is no emergency help to keep you back to life, the brain stops working and come up with biological death. So if you see the light, and no one helps you this is a clear sign that it is time that the lights go out forever.
