...that is not the end of it...
...yes. It is.

Can you imagine not existing?
...yep, sure can.
...yes I can. Haven't you ever been under general anesthesia ??
Same effect. No consiousness. No brain response to stimuli
and no awareness of tiem.
Yep, four times in surgery, they give you the drugs and bam! time ends,
nothing at all there. You remember getting the drug, fade out ...
... fade in. Nothing in the middle, you didn’t exist. Each case I was
non-existent for three to four hours. Biggest shock was when I was put into
my room (with windows), I knew where the sun was when I was wheeled into
surgery, and now only a few minutes later the sun had moved forty five to
sixty degrees across the sky. Time Travel!
According to Diane when I first came out of surgery in the two cases where
she was there, I responded (with nonsense) when she tried to talk to me right
after I was wheeled into recovery, I don’t remember that, all I do know is
that I can remember existing again, my brain was sort of working again, but
“I” was not the one there but whatever it was was related to me in some
manner. Nothing in reality other than time passing existed. Within a few
minutes I came back and existed again as a person.
My “view”: drug started, count down from one hundred to one “one
hundred, ninety nine, ninety eight, ninetyyyyy....
Oh, hi, Diane, is it over yet.
“Yes, Harry, just like the last three times you asked that."
Same as when I was electrocuted as a teen, one moment working, loud
bang/everything went white to black.
Found myself on the floor hurting all over wondering what happened.
It was close to ten minutes later, I never lived those minutes. Again, Time
If anything had gone wrong I never would have woken up and I would never have
noticed anything. Which is why death does not scare me, nothing there, no
time, no space, no wants, no pain, no nothing.
Now dying can be very bad, but dead? No big deal.
