You know how people say that when you're about to die, that life flashes before your eyes ? Well what if our very existance right now is that flashback. Everything in your life has already happened and at this very moment you're just tenths of a second away from death, but your frozen just visualizing this. That tenth of a second feels like 80 years.

This just mind-fucked me.

If there is highdeas similar to this, no intention on stealing that. This thought just randomly hit me today

It's cool bro. I didn't even think you stole it, I just get tired of seeing the same highdeas over and over again. Very few thoughts are original.

Trout Says:

But what is "originality"? Now I'm not saying I support the people who blatantly copy and paste, but for those who subconsciously share the same thoughts. It seems that everything thought, somehow connects to things I have experienced and taken in one way or another, whether I realize which exact experience is another thing. There are those thoughts that we cannot place, but know that originate elsewhere. Also I find thoughts which I think are original and I get excited, and later find that in fact it was from something else, subconsciously taken in and processed as my own. I think this is a human property, and not just me, but I can never be sure.

yeah agreed, but also how can something be original really? because im sure other people elsewhere has done or seen etc.. many of the things we call "original", so pretty much alot of things are copies of what we dont know existed.

What happens when your life flashing before your eyes flashes before your eyes then? Thats right - eventually it flashes again.

Think about this: What if you learned how you were going to die? Let's say, you were going to get in a plane crash. Well of course after you heard that, you'd avoid airplanes all your life... but then, that prediction would be wrong, wouldn't it?

 
 
Sun, 09/18/2011 - 12:53pm

Then a plane would probably plow into your house. That's why I hated that damn show "Thats So Raven". If the future seen is truth, its gonna happen, all your actions to prevent it have been accounted for and are futile. Hell they'll probably end up causing the future you were trying to prevent.

 
 
Sat, 09/17/2011 - 1:14pm

That plane can always crash into you.

interesting idea man, i think that we experience life in the present but we exist in both the past and future because there is no past or future it is simply existence. to me thats the reason vivid memories of something bad can haunt us as if they have just occured and happy memories can bring us joy even years after we believe they have happened, because when we remember it it has just occured again in our minds which are the only true recordings we have of our lives. i think the future has already happened as well and we experience it in a form that doesnt allow us to see it just yet. but i also think there are some cracks in the unconscious mind that allows us to experience things like deja vu which i have very often. im very high i hope this all made sense, stay toasted my friends

You dream at night, it's release into your brain the moment after your born and the moment before you die. I've actually smoked it multiple times, and i couldn't even begin to explain what happens. Let's just say you get a BADASS body high, and it's a total spiritual experience. Just be careful if yu want to buy it, yu can get charged with man slaughter simply because they can't explain It. But itll be the best 15 minutes of your life. And all it takes is one hit.

Ive thought of something similar, only I thought, You know how at the speed of light it would take light a year to go a light year, and these stars hundreds of light years away really arent there, its just the light from long long ago. well when we see a star burn out it flashes. So what if our entire existance, humanity, everyhing is in that flash right now from the sun, we just dont know it yet, and probably wont in our lifetime.

i swear like everyone thinks, it, i have seen that idea the most on here, but i really don't think people steal the idea, but everyone just has the thought , because we all hear how life flashes before your eyes, and death is the one thing that everyone is interested about and is talked about

ok so if this is just a memory, what if i suddenly decide to move to finland and change the memory alternating the path that leads to my death?

what if finland was the place you died at?

Then you suddenly deciding to move to Finland would all be part of it. No matter what you do, it'd all have already been predetermined to happen. So, in reality, fate has total control - we control nothing.
