From the afterword of photobook "demain".
They say that the passing of time changes when we go through an accident. They also say that your whole life flashes in front of your eyes in that last split second before death.
A psychologist friend taught me that it is the mind’s attempt to find the best possible solution to ensure
survival. Within this very short duration, it analyzes its memory and attempts to find this answer from within a person’s life experience. Time passes relatively slow when the mind is turning at full speed.
I hear about other people’s near-death experience, they say that memories do not flash back in sequential order but swarm collectively and are inconclusive. They all say that they felt like there was no end and it would last forever.
I think what I will recall at the brink of my death will be the mundane events in my life. I may recall the time and place of what I had seen or heard, or even the memories of my parents or of others that are buried deep inside me like going through an old photo album.
