UPDATE (9/27/12): Hey guys, I keep noticing DAILY, that people have been using search engines trying to find “What does death feel like?” and you keep landing right here, on my blog. I never expected that. What you will notice is that I am just a normal guy, I don’t really have the answers because I have never gone through it or anything, this is just speculation. I also wrote this a while ago, so I apologize if it sounds corny and written by a juvenile. Happy reading and feel free to leave a comment!
I was wondering this when I was in the bathroom this evening. What does death feel like? No one really knows. I am not talking about getting shot, or stabbed, or anything like that. I’m not even referring to natural death. I mean what does death feel like, after you’ve already passed? If you could feel, what would it be like?
Would it be painful? Would it be peaceful? It’s a mind boggling question, you have to admit. One has to wonder, if the heart has stopped, then there would be no body heat whatsoever, so does that mean you’d feel freezing? One thing I know is that whenever I have a fever, I tend to feel pretty cold, and always get under the covers. If your body temperature lowers quite a bit, is it so hard to wonder if your body gets warmer? Would you feel cold or hot, or quite possibly, nice and warm?
What if you were unconfortable? There’s nothing much you can do about that. You are paralyzed when you die, so that is out of the question. If it was peaceful, would you be worried if it was too peaceful? One has to thing that if you’re dead, every organ in your body is still. You can’t hear, see or breath. You can’t even feel your own heartbeat, or the faint rush of blood through your veins, because you sir, are dead. Would that bother you? In that much of tranquility?
I think it would be a lot like a state of awareness. At peace with the world and your life, much like I think it would be on your deathbed. I’ve always heard of old people who are at peace with their lives, willing to pass on. Never have I heard of an elder in their death bed trying to cheat death, continue living. They all want to die. Before they get to that age though, old people are mean. Just plain mean. Since they know their time is almost near, they think they can do whatever they want, cause they know they won’t get any crap for it. Anyways that is my rant, peace out.
