if you close your eyes right before the train hits, your brain will think that you have died. some people find calmness in this.
I always reblog this I just love it so much
okay listen. A train is coming towards you. You close your eyes. The train stops coming towards you. You haven’t died. Your brain is really freaking relieved that the train is not coming towards you anymore. That’s why you feel calm. Brains aren’t so stupid that they think you’ve died just because everything is black. It might have felt a bit stressed by seeing that there is a large vehicle travelling towards you, because sometimes it can have problems with understanding things outside of you and telling what’s real and what isn’t. But your brain perfectly aware that your heart is still beating and your lungs are still breathing and blood is still travelling around your body. That’s it’s job. You don’t feel calm because you “died”, you feel calm because you’re ALIVE.
Can we stop glorifying suicidal thoughts now please?
No matter what happens, you will always have an ancient part right in the middle of your human brain, somewhere that you have no access to, that wants nothing more than for you to stay alive.
