Overload

Being anaesthetised

Category: Events

Type

Involuntary

Introduction and description

Many people when they are anaesthetised are unaware of the type of anesthetic given - volatile or gas,  or an injection, thus I have used this general phrase to mean anaesthetic of some sort.  The anaesthetic could have been used within a hospital or dental surgery setting.  Anaesthetics can be:

  • Injected substances such as - Ketamine,  Etomidate, Metomidate, Rolicyclidine, Tiletamine [normally only used for animals], Sodium Thiopental, and Propofol

A remarkable number of observations were once achieved from the use in medicine of nitrous oxide  - 'laughing gas' - and I have provided a separate section for this gas, the observations however will appear under both this and the nitrous oxide.

How it works

Physically

According to a Pubmed paper from which I quote, the hallucinations, out of body experiences and near death experiences are caused by "an overdose of anaesthetic drugs or an alteration in pharmacokinetics, altered hydratation, electrolyte or acid-base state, hypoglycaemia, hypoxia, hypercapnia, hypocapnia, hyperthermia, hypothermia, hormonal disorders, neurological damage resulting from surgery, embolism, haemorrhage or trauma".

Functionally

You need to have the Model of the Mind open and have read How spiritual experence works.

If we look at this from a logical point of view, what we see is that the Will is being assaulted by a Threat of extraordinary proportions. 

The 5 senses along possibly with the nervous system are telling it that it is in danger, that the threat is both real and enormous.  Thus the Will is being told DO SOMETHING. 

But it can do nothing.  It has searched the Memory for a learnt function to deal with it and finds nothing and the Threat is there now, it has no time to learn.  Since you cannot avoid the threat, the messages get louder and louder – THREAT, THREAT, THREAT – 'we are about to die captain we don’t want to go with you, your little cells and organs want to live'!

There is little input from the Reasoning function – after all what can it do?  And the intensity of the messages being sent it from Perceptions is overwhelming – DO SOMETHING, DO SOMETHING!!!  The Will may first tell the Autonomic system [via Endorphins] that it can do nothing and to cease complaining, but there comes a point where the Will gives up, exhausted, and lets the Composer take over. The ego has been squashed.

And we get our spiritual experience.
