An individual's death is as unique as the life which preceded it,
but the way the body shuts down is always the same process.
When your brain has determined that there is something fatally wrong,
your brain then shuts down all but your body's most important life giving functions
and focuses on repairing the damage proving life threatening.
Once your brain has determined that there isn't anything more that it can do
to save the life which is very rapidly going to be through,
your brain then performs its final and most important of life giving functions.
It kicks into overdrive manufacturing and re manufacturing
excess quantities of dopamine.
Within seconds dopamine is completely, totally flooding your system.
Any sensation of pain, fear or any other negative emotion
are all completely and totally alien.
You have reached the highest state of euphoria that you have ever experienced.
You have attained your after life. You have entered your heaven,
and then you die, bringing to an end your life's total existence.
What follows is a place of complete nothingness.
This is the place where Nothing truly exists.
No time, no matter, no consciousness,
except that perhaps your final moment of eternal bliss
is now the only entity in existence in this abyss of nothingness,
and nothing is forever,
and so forever in your heaven forever will be this.
