Naturally, this is the theory that you have put forth, as you have not experienced this.

There are numerous Near Death Experience (NDE) stories from people that have died and been recessitated and have told of a existance after death. As they have had the opportunity to die and come back, and as you have not, I must take their word as being much more valid then yours.

: Suppose you were to strap a pound of C-4 plastic explosive : to your neck. When it detonates, all of your senses are : destroyed instantly (preventing further stimulous), all of : your memory is destroyed, and your ability to think is : destroyed. What's left? Nothing. Time ends for you right : then and there. However, suppose your head was magically : repaired 10 minutes later. Once you were back together, no : time would have passed from the time your head exploded to : the time you were repaired. The last thing you would remember : is the flash of the explosion, and a sudden "jump" from that : instant to the instant you were repaired. Keep in mind it doesn't matter : whether it was 10 minutes, or 10 billion years. Time has : ended for you, and this is what death is: the end of time for : you. If you want to know what its like to be dead, try : remembering before you were born. Before you were born is the exact : same thing as after you die. Both times were/are when your body : was/is not functional. Better yet, a deep, deep, sleep : is somewhat close to what it is like to be dead. You know- : one of those nights when 8 hours seems to pass like 30 minutes.
