Explaining Life Reviews

If you've heard the phrase "my life flashed before my eyes", it's pretty self-explanatory what life review means.

For over a century, life reviews were well reported but there aren't much studies about it. There are two theories as to why this happens:

  • The first theory is that life events may exist as a continuum in our minds, and may come to the forefront in extreme conditions of psychological and physiological stress;
  • The second is that our memories "unload" themselves when we're on the brink of death like cortical disinhibition, but usually serene and ordered, not chaotic.

Spatial Time Thinking

Ever since Albert Einstein and his theory of relativity, may people now argue that we live in a "static block universe" wherein time is spread out like a panorama where the past, the present, and the future all co-exist simultaneously.

Other proficient people such as Carlo Rovelli, a modern physicist, also holds the view that time is not linear. This is somewhat like a reflection of Immanuel Kant's perception of time as well; that it is simply a product of our minds.
