Forgiveness in the Hatred Zone

It took a lot of time to actually think about and decide whether publishing the following post is a good idea or not. There is something special about it, something that I could not decipher. It belongs to an old era that vanished a while ago. In all cases, here it is for the world to see.

Forgiveness in the Hatred Zone

I hope my pain turn into smiles upon the lips that gave me pain…

I hope my tears turn into sweet dreams in the imagination that made me cry…

I wish my depression turn into hope in the heart that molted me in depression…

I wish my hell turns into the rain of heavens and quenches the thirst of the deserts that gave fire to my hell…

I hope my loneliness turn into freedom upon the wings that set me in prison…

I wish a rose bloom upon the hands that buried me.

I hope he finds his shore, he who left me shipwrecked and lost…

“Death, love, and art are respectively the soul, the body, and the intellect of life.”

What Does It Feel Like To Die? -TestTube

One of the most intriguing questions that everyone might have asked at some point in his/her life, is what happens at the moment of death and after? If you would have asked me this question two years ago, I would have replied that, as a believer, we will go into afterlife to be judged, and you know the whole story… However, after I became a secular person, I started reasoning with scientific explanations.

Few days ago, I came across this video from TestTube that shows what happens at the moment of death biologically. So the presenter starts explaining that biologically and legally, death is when the brain is dies and starts taking everything in the body with it.

Interestingly, at the moment of death there is a massive burst of energy in the brain (near death experiences?). Following that, the brain sends a damaging signal to the heart, causing it to disfunction. Later, a wide range of neurochemicals are released in the body.

Watch the video below, and let me know what you think about death, near death experiences, and afterlife 🙂

A Gene that Determines Likely Time of Death

Physical characteristic and appearances, such as hair color, skin color, and blood type, are all determined by specific DNA sequences called genes. Interestingly, researchers believe they found the gene that will determine the time when a person is more likely to die.

In a study published in November 2012 in Annals of Neurology Journal, scientists interested in studying the circadian rhythm (a.k.a the biological clock) reported that they identified a gene, with unsettled accuracy, that does not only determine whether you are a morning person or not, but also the likely time of your death.

In particular, the gene allows for three possible combinations of the DNA nucleotides, A-A, A-G, and G-G. Dr. Clifford Saper, chief of neurology at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, clarified that the genotype affects the sleep-wake pattern of each person. Furthermore, he stated that people with the A-A genotype tend to wake one hour before the G-G people, while the A-G people wake up in between.

Most importantly, these genotypes were accurate predictors of the time of death. Studies on several deceased people showed that people with A-A and A-G genotypes die before 11:00 am, whereas people with G-G genotype die after 6:00 pm. Thus, this gene will determine the time of the day most likely you will die, but not the day.
