Imagine you're falling off a cliff. Theres no turning back now, you're going to die. As you fall headfirst towards the red desert floor, you notice the tumbleweed rustling in the wind, the lava red rocks below you jutting out in every direction. You turn to see the sunset in the horizon, burning blood red in the desert sky. You look back towards the spot from which you fell, wanting more than anything to be back there, as you were before. As you look back into the eyes of those still on the cliff, you remember how it happened, the reactions of people, their faces not hiding what they felt. As you turn slowly back to the floor you realize what was important in your life. You want to go back, you wish you could change it all but you can't, you just accept it, its over. You ask yourself "What's next?" All the different theories on what happens after death rush through your mind. You question whether what you believed your whole life was true. You don't know, but you have faith. It has to be true, you know it is. You spread your arms wide, ready embrace the desert floor, and death itself. Knowing you're right, knowing everything is going to be ok.

Whoa.

It's sad that this is going to go more or less totally unnoticed when stacked up against some stiff competition ala some stupid ass Mountain Dew Highdea some dumbass 7th grader thought up.

I'm genuinely sorry dude. This deserved to be seen. It's way fucking deeper than most stuff I've read on here. Fuck people.

It all depends on how long the height of what your falling off of is man, if you fell off the Grand Canyon you'd have quite a bit of time to think.

They say that when a person knows they are about die chemicals are released in your brain (dmt) which actually distorts your sense of time, a few seconds may feel like a minute. In that mindset. About to splat. You could not only think of all that. But most likely be finished with spare time.

that was very detailed, I enjoyed that. I got to admit that I was waiting for it to end with "...and then you wake up." Like when your just about to pass out and then you feel like you are falling, but wake up before you hit the ground.

Nah man, it was meant for you to try to imagine what it would be like to know you're gonna die. Jus somethin to get you thinkin.

And you are met with an overwhelming and calming sensation of instant nothingness as your face hits the ground.

I realize
"well, in a second none of this shit will matter anyways. and any regrets that I had in life will die with me as well."
and I will be at peace.
