I’m having one of my “deep” moments here. It’s a personal theory that has turned over in my mind for years. I’m telling you, what I suggest is quite possible. I just don’t think anyone has ever considered it.
Many believe a person in a comatose-like state are either screaming inside to be set free or completely blank of mind. I have another theory that might be happening. It’s actually more likely than the “locked in” scenario, but probably not so with the blank one.
What if they are experiencing euphoria?
Now, before you call me crazy (for this, anyhow) please hear me out. It’s my theory, yes… but based on scientific principle. Some might think of this as a religious experience, and not scientific. No matter.
Before I get into this, let me just tell you that I’ve never heard of anyone who was in a coma being miserable. Quite the contrary, actually. So then, I have trouble understanding when people proclaim — and some tell me this about Ryan — that they would never want a life like that!
Based on what? I ask again, based on what?
It is abundantly proven that those who are brought back from death (and even the brink of death) experience remarkable peace, clarity, joy, and completeness. They experience grand visions. For many, this is a religious experience. Personally, I believe our brains go into something akin to a shutdown mode. An ancient human process that is protective and makes dying a pleasurable experience. After all, death is a process. Think about it, our heart and breathing could stop for minutes (and sometimes for hours, like when someone falls through the ice), but our cells (to include our brain’s) are still alive for some time. Doctor’s use clinical evaluation to mark death, but does anyone really know when we’re truly dead?
Are we ever?
Like everything else, from a stone to animals, we are energy and really nothing more. Energy can never be gained nor lost… only transferred. That is, unless the laws of our universe are entirely wrong. I suppose that’s a topic for another day, but it doesn’t change our existence (i.e., energy) in this one.
Anyhow, I must get back to where I left off about death being a process. That’s not to say it doesn’t hurt like unholy hell when one’s head is kicked in, but the closer to death we become, the more our brain protects us.
Here’s something worth considering and is the premise of my theory. What if Ryan is in a perpetual or intermittent state of bliss? Who really cares if it is religiously or scientifically caused? The truth is, this is far more likely than him yearning to be set free of his body.
He might already be set free!
So, perhaps he’s not a prisoner in his own body after all. Maybe his body is a prisoner to him… and he’ll let it go when he damned-well pleases! Think about that.
It sickens me that people like Ryan might be given up on because of the presumption that they are suffering or miserable, when there is no proof that this is what’s happening. No one really knows, except those who experienced it. Those who were dead, nearly dead, or in a comatose-like state and return tell us it was a wonderful experience. Well, that, or they remember nothing… which is just fine by them too.
Is it possible that Ryan is experiencing something we all would want? The end-all, feel-good existence that no drug could match? Yes, of course it is. More than that, I bet he is. Maybe not all the time, as his awareness pulsates, but some of the time for sure. It is entirely possible that he never wants to come back. For all we know his mind is with some insanely sexy angel holding a puppy or kitten who just can’t seem to stop pleasing him. I use that example because that’s what I would want (and you all know by now that my wife, Sue, is a living angel… that’s got it going on, big time. Is it possible that I have the best of both worlds)? Why then would he have any wish to return to worldly emotional pain and suffering when “heaven” is there for the taking?
Who in their right mind would ever want to toss away…
