Alright, this might sound a bit crazy, but it's just an idea.

It has been said that when you're about to die, you see this "light" at the end of the tunnel.
Well what if that "light" is the birth canal to your next life? and THAT is why all the endorphins and other chemicals are released.. so it turns into a hallucination to force you to forget your past life...

Whoa. Trippy.

who knows where science is going. noetic sciences are making a lot of progress. i don't think "scientifically" and "impossible" should go together when describing something that we may very well learn about centuries from now. who knows where our race is going... sorry. stoned.

Maybe Babys hold the answer because they have just experianced it. Yet they cannot communicate it because there "physical" form has not developed yet(their brain) capable of using English. Or they are on such a trip they cant find the words to describe it. I know i have been so high i cant seem to talk to anyone, My mind is just all over the place, thinking to quickly to put it into words... idk man im just another average stoner speaking my mind. Although you could sort of say that certain religions are based around this. Like hindu and reincarnation. We are all just wandering souls looking for a vessel, a physical form

This is very true, It would be exciting to be alive during the time in which sciences uncovers the mysteries surrounding life and death. Certainly it wouldn't be possible today, but some day... some day... :)

woah! maybe along with forgetting your past life you forget literally everything including functioning so that's why you have to re-learn it again, like eating and walking in the baby stage of life.

maybe in a near death experience a baby is born from a fragment of your soul. then whe you actually die another is born, making 2 babies... oh and what if soul fraction babies are the evil humans, like Hitler, because they dont have a full soul.

Read up on DMT it's the chemically released when you are born, when you die, and in deep stages of sleep.....That's your explanation.....it's a hell of a psychedelic!

This doesn't make much sense... what about people who see the light, but don't die?

Generazio Says:

That is exactly what I was thinking. Like, what happens to the suicides? The murders? What happens when you don't see the light and still die?

 
 
Sat, 06/11/2011 - 3:02pm

then when God returns, if you haven't already died, you come back to life in the beginning of the apocalypse we're in right now. but recognizes sacrifice, but he doesn't recognize senseless death. whatever senseless death means to you.

What if in like 150 years when we're all 'rebirthed' we happen to come across these comments from our past life and read them and say "Wow, I wonder what genius typed this!", and you'd never know it was you from your past life.

I don't get it. Why are there are bunch of accounts all with names like "jndgsdlj" all created about 22 hours ago all have only upvoted only your highdeas within the space of a few minutes. None have writted comments or posted a highdea. I smell something fishy.

Thing is some of them are all right (the highdeas).

 
 
Sat, 06/11/2011 - 7:42pm

Dude, I really hope she didnt create a bunch of accounts and upvoted her highdea...

When people have near death experiences and they come back to life, that means the baby is a stillborn.. Or retarded.
