    im asking cause my daughter was in a car wreck (shes fine a little bruised) last night and said she saw her life pass before her eyes.

    it happened to me in 1981 when i had to jump off a huffy into a catwalk to avoid being killed by an incoming plane that was heading straight for me.

    it happened so fast but i remember seeing my house, my parents and my car



    just curious to see if this has happened to others here

    Never.

    I've never really been in a situation where I thought I was about to die either, might have something to do with it.

    yea that seems to be the only time it happens...and i dont think it happens when your life is threatened by lets say a hostage or shooting incedent

    it has to be a sudden and unexpected

    Perhaps our brains are searching our memories like a catalog looking for solutions to a life threatening problem we have never encountered and our conscience is just going along as an observer, as ancient alien theorists believe.

    My life didn't flash before my eyes but I did have very strange thoughts and emotions before I lost consciousness.

    well, the memory sections of our brains are basically organic computers, so if the computer thinks it's getting turned off, it could seek to protect the information in a memory dump, say into a new container (that in this case might not be quite ready) :dontknow:

    Yep, massive internal blood loss. I went blind and deaf before I lost consciousness.
