💬 Comments on the video

Thanks for watching! Early on, I unearthed a soviet-era film that appears to show dogs who are brought ‘back to life’ with a revolutionary machine called the autojektor. At the time, the scientists who conducted these experiments believed that they had truly defeated death! While this wasn’t the case, it’s fascinating to me how rapidly modern science has changed our relationship with something so ancient and permanent. How do you think death will change in the future?

Another note for clarity: We refer to Defibrillators as devices that restart a normal heartbeat via electric pulse or shock to the heart. They can’t restart a failed heart 💔.

my grandmas last words before she died “i’m walking up the porch steps” my family has a porch in our backyard that she loved, when she said that it lead me to believe she’s walking up the steps to the light :)

I'm not afraid of dying, I'm just afraid of losing my memories with the people whom I truly treasure, whom I spend my time with. I wish there's this thing called reborn, if I could be reborn and reincarnated to the next life without losing my memories and still related with the people whom I treasured, I'd be the happiest person.😊

I’m not afraid of dying, just afraid of the sensation of losing breath when the moment comes, or the pain etc

People are scared of dying because they think it’ll be eternally dark and lonely, but this isn’t true because death isn’t an experience to be had. Death is the absence of life.

I’m not particularly scared of being dead, I’m just scared of the process of dying knowing that my life is coming to an end and not being able to do anything about it.
