What if when you die your brain turns on your "dream mode".. and you dream thoughts the rest of eternity and this is what people call heaven. Ive been thinking about this for a few years, it seems possible.

You almost have it spot on bro, our brain makes a Chemical called dimethlytriptamine (DMT) that is only produced in two very specific times; when we are in deep REM sleep, and literally moments before we "die"....so essentially we are in a very deep dream state when we die.

Crazzzzy shit man

So you are telling me when you are dust and bone and the DMT juice is all dried up and your brain is none existent, rotted away you will be in a dream state how??? Have you ever been drunk or on some really fucked up drugs and blacked out completely? Or gotten in a bad accident that knocked you a couple a days forward? it doesn't sound like you have. Because if you had you'd know the darkness and peace and quiet of that beyond. You were there before you born, in the nothingness. So imagine if you get knocked out cold and just never wake again. That's what it is wether you like it or not. And no study or drug or anything is ever EVER going to change that. Live your life to the fullest cuz it sucks.

but why does that point towards that brain's conscious dying with it? could it be, that experience from the huge amount of dmt releasing can last an eternity? a matter of perception, m aybe clam

Tue, 05/06/2014 - 1:05pm

It doesn't last for eternity...? You die nigga, your body functions stop. The last trip of dmt is like a mechanism of the mind so that death isn't so bad. Unless you lived a regrettable life; in that case, that last trip is remorseful.I think heaven and hell exist within the mind. It all depends on your last thoughts, and your final reflections on yourself

Twitler Says:

Well yeah, of course it doesn't last for eternity but anyone who has taken psychedelics can tell you time dilation is very real. Perhaps the DMT trip will *feel* like eternity, when in reality it's only a minute or so.

mr_niceguy Says:

thanks for that input twitler.
burrito, this is all just belief and theory. I don't actually know what experiences a person on the cusp of dying undergoes. Do you? For someone to say from a subjective view that it does not last an eternity would stand proper within everyone's perspective, except the only perspective that experiences the truth.
I find it really difficult to convey my thoughts ever since I stumbled upon the statement that language is limited. Misinterpretation is unavoidable.

Shit Twitler dude you just blew my mind.

Our body releases it just like every other thing it releases when we die. But I think dmt is just so strong that's why our body only releases it during sleep. Otherwise we'd all be unconscious living dream worlds. Just imagine all the tweakers you see talking to themselves and shit, not making any sense, but the whole world. lol

Wed, 05/07/2014 - 10:57pm

my turtle once tripped on dmt and said "i took too much and awoke (probaly prematurely) and said you cant collect your thoughts to talk, you dont know your bod, a pon waking from it. It was like i left my bod and now im becoming familiar with it. his voice sounded diff to himself. perception on sizes of things, feet, walls, people were very altered and baselined in 15-20min. maybe just bad dmt? felt bad for that little turtle =o

Fri, 05/09/2014 - 6:15pm

I got in a car accident 4 years ago and sometimes I think that I died in that accident and my heaven is just to keep living.

I think you might be right but I've always seen it as the other way round, that when you sleep you go closer to some sort of etherial afterlife realm

If your brain stops working as you are unable to perceive time--from the DMT--then it could plausibly seem to you like you're in the dream forever. You guys are being all scientific, but I'm gonna get philosophical. And semantic. Time is defined as the interval between two events, and only our observation of these events can demonstrate time. If reality is so warped in our brains we cease to perceive the phenomenon of time in our last moments, then the final time of our lives will be a time of which we cannot perceive. A forever. A forever in which the perception of time will never return. So if reality is defined by what your brain can sense and observe, then the feeling of this forever dream in this altered state of brain activity that before death you experience rarely and remember none of will by definition become your afterlife. To you, it can seem like an afterlife. Maybe not to the people still living who arrogantly assume that their perception of the universe reflects its very truths.

Or hell, if one does not master ones own conscious mind,

Sat, 05/10/2014 - 11:41pm

Yeah man i know its like us weed smokers are the only ones that think about those things!

Sun, 05/11/2014 - 2:28am

DMT my friend, exactly what your talking about happens, and it is more real than anything in this reality can provide

Mon, 05/12/2014 - 1:17am

it would be fun... but i'd prefer an afterlife made of real things to play with.

Tue, 05/13/2014 - 11:16pm

Well for any of you who have DMT and broke through and know that feeling of the infinite, of melting into the universe and becoming one with it and everything, think how infinite that little 20 minute trip feels. Now i dont know if this is scientifically proven or not but if this giant release of DMT at death is true, if it release a much greater amount than we can smoke than that may just be an eternity at possibly the afterlife, just a feeling of complete ego-loss and becoming the universe and everything it encases. sort of runs somewhat parallel with the over soul idea.

Wed, 05/14/2014 - 12:18am

I imagine some of us don't want to get stuck in our 'dreams'.

Wed, 05/14/2014 - 12:28pm

So in your death you enter a perpetual dream state that plays in a loop the experiences of your life.
You dream your own life experience.
That is fucking beautiful

Thu, 05/15/2014 - 6:32pm

Though this is true in most part, after death the brain dies as well. The "dream mode" you speak of does take place, but has only been reported to last 6 to 8 minutes after death. The good news is that dreams, while happening in an imagined space, have a time altering effect that can alter the perception of time enough to give the illusion of hours, day, years, even a full lifetime passing by in the matter of a few minutes. Find fuck was right, science can do that to you.

Sat, 05/17/2014 - 8:12am

I've thought this before too. I like to think of the whole Matrix thing sometimes too

Sat, 05/17/2014 - 2:52pm

this is ALL a DREAM. We are spiritual beings having a human experience. Not human beings trying to have a spiritual experience. metaphysical research can tell us some freaky truth of nature of reality as a complete illusion. Research physics and eastern philosophy. Good thinking friend! It's time to wake up

xspekt Says:

There's no such thing as the "rest of eternity." Just eternity because time doesn't exist in eternity. Just thought I'd share that

Tue, 06/03/2014 - 12:58am

What if, instead if going into dream mode for eternity, the part of your brain that perceives time dies. So to you, it's like eternity because there is no time. But to everyone else, its a matter of minutes.

Wed, 06/11/2014 - 1:27pm

interesting theory with the connection of dmt dreams, birth and death. this is insightful. at one point there was a time when I thought we could be living a life in our dreams in another dimension. when we wake from sleep and continue living this life. its the same idea when you fall asleep. just hope there is a level of consciousness that is complete and clear understanding. even if just for a moment!

Fri, 07/04/2014 - 3:10am

so what if you got in a plane/car/motorcycle crash and your brain was destroyed
many people have had this happen to them, do they not get the afterlife dreams?

Wed, 05/23/2018 - 12:05pm

Consciousness seems to be currently irreducible in scientific terms except for strong evidence of correlates of consciousness where damage to one part of the brain results in faculties being lost. I think the lesson death teaches us is not to waste time, to be at peace with the moment and not worry it away. Everything and everyone dies at some point, the law of entropy can be a bummer. Extinction seems to await us and whether the end result is a DMT trip on your way out of this life is up for speculation. But subjectivity can never be destroyed. Subjectivity exists in the conscious mind of every individual and if I destroyed enough of your brain you would be a different person. You would be dead. But the subjectivity would remain. You would have died but still be conscious. future generations will be conscious, as if a brain died with its body and another subjectivity exists. Maybe a void exists between one subjectivity and another, the continuity of which cannot be destroyed.
