An individual's death is as unique as the life that preceded it,
but when the body shuts down it is always the same process.
Once the brain has determined that there is something fatally wrong,
the brain then shuts down all except for the body's most life giving functions
and then focuses on repairing the damage proving life threatening.
Once the brain has determined that there isn't anything it can do
to save the life that very soon will be through,
the brain then performs its final important function.
It kicks into overdrive manufacturing dopamine flooding your system.
Feelings of pain, fear or of any negative emotion
are all completely and totally alien.
Everyone experiences just prior to when they die
the highest state of euphoria ever experienced in their lives.
