Humans are fascinated by death — and I suspect that a lot of that fascination stems from the fact that most of us just can’t comprehend death in its entirety. Indeed, the answer to the question “What does it feel like to die?” is largely, we don’t really know — mostly because (for what are perhaps obvious reasons) there aren’t a lot of ways we can gather this information. We do have some guesses, though, so we’re not totally in the dark — and we’re still searching whenever and however we can, whether that’s through scientific research or through listening to people recount their first-hand experiences with what death feels like.

Death is the permanent, irreversible cessation of all biological functions that sustain a living organism. Brain death is sometimes used as a legal definition of death. The remains of a previously living organism normally begin to decompose shortly after death. The top global causes of death, in order of total number of lives lost, are associated with three broad topics: cardiovascular (ischaemic heart disease, stroke), respiratory (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, lower respiratory infections) and neonatal conditions – which include birth asphyxia and birth trauma, neonatal sepsis and infections, and preterm birth complications.

We do know what happens to the body when you die: Your oxygen depletes, which slows your circulation, making your skin mottle and your extremities turn cold; it gets harder to breathe, and what breathing you are able to do becomes noisy (although for what it’s worth, the “death rattle,” as it’s called, isn’t thought to be painful); and when your heartbeat, breathing, and circulation stop, clinical death occurs. Biological death follows a few minutes later as your brain cells die from the lack of oxygen.

But as for how it feels? Well, a lot of it depends on exactly how you die — which also affects the knowability of the whole thing. People who die from illness, for example, aren’t typically able to describe what they’re feeling; as Margaret Campbell, a decades-long palliative caregiver and nursing professor at Wayne State University told The Atlantic in 2016, “Roughly from the last two weeks until the last breath, somewhere in that interval, people become too sick, or too drowsy, or too unconscious to tell us what they’re experiencing.” As a result, much of the talk around death in these situations centers around what those observing it see, rather than what those experiencing it feel.

We can, however, sketch out a few things that people might feel as they die, based both on the research that’s been conductedand what people who have technically died, but who have subsequently been resuscitated can tell us about what they remember. Ultimately, death — like so many other things — is an extremely personal event; you might experience some of these things, all of them, or none at all.

An AskReddit thread called for people who have been clinically dead to describe what they felt during their experience — and, indeed, this lines up with some of the research on the matter. A study published in 2014 examined the dreams of people in hospice who were near death, and the overwhelming majority — about 88 percent — reported having extremely vivid dreams that sometimes even carried over into their waking hours. Furthermore, a lot of these dreams and visions featured loved ones who had already died. In many cases, they were comforting, rather than frightening.

This is where the manner of death comes into play: If you experience something like a traumatic physical injury or an allergic reaction, it might be painful, as this Redditor noted in that same AskReddit thread. I can think of fewer ways to die that are more frightening to me than suffocating, largely because of the pain factor that’s likely involved.

I also think this piece from San Francisco writer and activist Cris Gutierrez is worth reading, although fair warning that it’s quite harrowing. Gutierrez died of pancreatic cancer on Aug. 4, 2013 — and she wrote about it as it happened. This piece is the result. She wrote of the pain that has resulted from areas of her body shutting down from the cancer, or from complications from it; she wrote of the mental frustration of not being able to do all of the things she wanted to do; but she also wrote, “But for myself, tragedy, anguish — these have no room, in my heart. I just want to die in not too much pain, surrounded by the ones I love. I want to help them find what peace they can in the time remaining. And if you want to give me a special going away present, spread the word about the BCRA gene. Save some lives.” Food for thought.
