    Default Would you flatline?



    The movie Flatliners is about a group of medical students that attempt to see what lies beyond death by producing near death experiments. They “die” and then have themselves resuscitated. If you had the chance to participate in an experiment like this in a controlled environment, would you take it?

    I dunno. It sounds a lot like one of those "trust" things where everybody is supposed to catch you when you fall backwards?

    I'd be scared that someone said "Yes! Bout time we got rid of her!" and not revive me...

    I ate 2 doses of psychedelic truffles straight from Amsterdam (when they were legal), by myself, at midnight, and forgot my name and what dimension I was in. Was wild, terrifying, amazing and I'll never do it again. I think it actually made me less afraid of actual point of death (dying, on the other hand.....).

    I'm not sure. I would be intrigued, but also afraid of possible complications like brain damage. Also, even if I did have an NDE I wouldn't know whether it truly had a spiritual/supernatural element or if it was only neurology/biology and nothing more.

    Nope. I'm in no rush to see what's on the other side of things. It'll come in due time.. I may have been in a rush to grow up as a teenager.. but I'm certainly in no rush to grow older and be at peace with the end. It'll come when it comes, and I'm fine with that pace.

    Meh if it was a particularly slow day maybe, but only after I'd planned my funeral, I want them to resurrect Madonna and have her to be buried with me. Sistahs till' the grave, she swore.

    Then I'd come back all scary, like shove her body off me and stick my hands out of the ground first all while making the moaning noises(not the sexy kind though).

    Of course I'd do it. I'm all for most any mind-altering experience. Ever.

    Even upon reading the plot synopsis of the movie. It turns out that

    No. Too much risk of complications for something I will experience someday anyway.

    Same here. That and I'd be afraid that something would go wrong with the experiment and I actually would die.

    In a hearbeat.

    (Get it? Hearbeat? Flatline? Anyone?)

    Anyway...yes, I would.
    Hell, I've done this in not so controlled environments...
    I was a little too curious about death...and I've done stupid stupid things as a result of that..
