“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Death Bardo

I have experienced near death over 600 times because of sleep apnea. On many of these occasions I have had dreams that have informed me I am dead.

So. In case you are wondering:

Your brain goes into shock.

You zip through a gigantic roaring chrysanthemum form.

You are with your teacher if you have one and you are doing bardo retreat and it is awesome.

That's it.

Not so scared of death any more.
