Do you ever wonder how scary death is? Think about it; it’s the one thing that we truly know absolutely nothing about. Some people may cite religious beliefs of an afterlife and others might claim they just focus on life, but it’s really something that is totally and utterly foreign to us. And what if the religious people are wrong? What if death really is nonexistence… that it’s simply over once the brain dies? Terrifying, huh? Of course, the reasoning goes that you won’t notice it, since you won’t exist.

But… Let’s say a certain someone could expose you to nonexistence. Let’s say this person could actually let you experience the state of not existing and more importantly, let you remember it. He’d probably be able to get you to agree to anything in order to avoid that fate. Tangentially, for certain people near death, their brain activity sometimes ceases completely for about three seconds and then returns, only to shortly die in a more conventional fashion.

As another aside, many hospital orderlies have noticed a man wearing a suit that they have never seen in any catalog or on any person before. Interestingly enough, when you ask them about the suit they will struggle for a moment, then reply that it’s hard to describe, but they are sure they haven’t seen it before. Ask them about the man however, and they will freeze up, spasm violently and reply, “What man?”

    I usually think it’s stupid when people write “I don’t get it”.

    But this one I truly don’t get.
    Were those two first paragrafs just foreplay or something? I can’t tie together the entire text.

    Oh, and one more thing…

    It is possible that there is an afterlife, it is only played out in your head however, like a dream.
    Before you die, your brain activity shoots through the roof.
    Basically, during that time you could be living inside your head for eternity.

    I find it very fascinating how the brain can displace time so extremely.

      Possibly, but people have died while their brain is being monitored and has never been any sort of spike in activity.

    Painkiller, that totally pwns that man.
    “NOW YOU WILL NOT EXIST”
    “ENGAGE REALITY WARP BRAIN”
    “FUCK”
    It’s like how dreams only take a small amount of time yet last you all night.

    I remember reading this on ED.

    Bricks weren’t shat, but this story still creeps me out, especially since death is one of my greatest fears.

    Wonder what the suit looks like. Then again, I suppose I’d rather not know, haha.

    OMG I LOVE ED!

    But seriously, paradox:
    If you don’t exist, how can you remember not existing? There’s nothing to remember!

    I just think it’s interesting that nobody really knows what happens after death, but when referring to dead people, we imply that the soul is separate from the body. That YOU are separate from your body. Nobody says, “We found John on the roadside.” Generally they don’t even say, “We found John’s body.” They say, “We found THE body.” So if your body and soul are separate, and your body rots after death, what happens to your sould?

    cool theory @ comment 3
    but ye, humans fear what they don’t understand, and death is something that no one understands…the fear of the unknown.
    i’m more afraid of the time and place of my death, rather than worry about what happens after that.
    your mind is apparently alive a bit after you die, like 6 minutes is it? [i dunno, i heard it somewhere] i wonder what kind of things it thinks…yesh, brains are somethin’ else.

    The fallacy here is that there is in fact an afterlife.

    @ Dammerung:

    ED is actually how I found this site.

    I have a love/hate relationship with ED. Most of the pictures have almost turned me asexual and the articles can really cross the line at times, but I still think that site is fucking hilarious.

    *Ahem* Sorry, carry on >.>

    @ shortys roc my sox

    i never claimed ALL people were afraid of death…people do fear what they don’t properly understand
    and even when they believe there is an afterlife [heaven or hell]
    doesn’t mean that if their plane was crashing they wouldn’t be scared to die.
    realise i never said that people feared the afterlife, just the idea of dying…
    sorry if i seemed a bit misleading love. <3

    Couple theories o’ mine:

    Death is like being in a stasis chamber. You just kinda float around in darkness and feel infinite happiness.
    (By the way, I do, in fact, realize that stasis is a fictional concept invented for sci-fi stories. I still think death would be like that.)

    Next theory:

    The reason dead bodies rot is because the soul is gone. Your soul is the only thing keeping your body from rotting right now. Gangrene is caused by the soul avoiding a severely injured body part, thus causing said body part to rot.

    And now I must leave creepypasta.com for the day. It’s getting dark out and my mind generally is more prone to actually believe the stories if there’s darkness right outside my door. And believing the stories leads to fear, which leads to lack of sleep, which leads to lack of concentration the next day, which leads to failed classes, which leads to the banning of the computer, which is not the least bit pleasant.

  • BUT WHO WAS X?

    ‘many hospital orderlies have noticed a man wearing a suit that they have never seen in any catalog or on any person before’ Seriously the writer really didnt think about this, how the fuck (and more importantly) WHY would they know or care about suits in catalogs???

    I’m disappointed the author did not return to say anything about what people do to prevent non-existence. It says they go blank, possibly the glimpse, and then come back and die… are they given a ‘soul’ to be some kind of slave after death just so they won’t exist perhaps?

    Also are those people merely attempting to follow some directive from the suited man not to speak of him to you?

    Also people talking about X’s body, X’s brain theory should see dianetics, at the risk of falling for other Scientology garbage, it is pretty interesting though complete crap when read in to.

    I don’t see how the third paragraph fits with the first two. It’s like somebody played creepypasta mashup.
