If you have ever been in a near-death experience, you may have seen your life “flash” before your eyes. I’ve asked several people about this. They said that it was like they went through their whole life in a second. That’s not too far fetched. Your brain likes to avoid stress, so that it does not have to deal with facing death. So if your brain was to think you were going to die, it would go to the easiest way to escape: memory. So when it comes close to the end, your brain turns on every memory you ever had.
The brain will also stay alive for about 7 minutes after you die, provided your brain is intact. So if you have 7 minutes and you can experience your whole life in one second, that’s 60 lives per minute. 420 lives in 7 minutes. That’s a lot of time and a lot of experiences with death.

I’m sorry, I don’t understand. Does it imply that the reader may be living through a memory at the moment?
I think it means that your current life might actually be one of those ‘lifetime’ memories and that would mean that you are currently in the process of dying. I think it’s a cool thing to think about especially because there is at least some truth in it.
Why is this so low rated? This is a really good pasta.
I like the idea
It’s got a solid concept. It could maybe be improved by clarifying the intent a bit.
I agree with danatblair and Nick; I like the idea but perhaps some clarification as to why you’re telling us this, or maybe even adding in a character who is going through it may spice it up a little. *Shrug* But as aforementioned, it’s quite lovely. I’d never thought of that. :3
hi i like your creepypasta. I come from Germany and am just starting so, creepypastas English to translate into German, since there are quite back in Germany the terms. May I creepypasta might translate into German and then upload?
This is a pretty good pasta. Wish you could write more to make it legit 😀
Is this meant to be creepy? It sounds like something out of a science book 😛
Wow. .-. what is life.
This pasta brings up some interesting thoughts.
What if déjà vu is actually just our mind messing up the playback?
I think what he is saying is that perhaps 1 person has multiple lives therefore seven minutes of seperate live in different times
Is it killing us, and thinking about the beauty of it?
It used to be cats had more lives than humans,but now humans have more lives than cats? Awesome! Cats, step aside 9 lives ain’t going to get you anywhere anymore, us people have 420!
Okay……so does this mean that I am reincarnated off of other people or something
this i what i like in a good pasta the pasta gets you to think and to even question of the fabric of humanity
I love pastas like this. They really chill my bones and cause me to question the very makeup of the universe. This one especially is very well written and well executed. 9.7/10. Great pasta!
This kind of made me think about stuff and wow thats a lot of lives to see
this honestly made no sense
interesting fact good pasta for a short one
That is 50%/100% accurate. How is this supposed to creep me out? No offence because the information such as – Grammar, Capitals and etc, were quite good. The only problem was the story-line. It may revolve around death, and the information was very questionable. In my personal opinion, I just feel that it was too short and didn’t give me enough time to get”pastied” lol
I had to scroll for hours to get to the “leave a comment” thing and now I’m finally here :O. Anyways, I think this is a really great pasta I love it 😀
wow………..so we die 420 times……….damn.
Informative but not creepy.
420… blaze it?
If you “experience” a new life every second, even if in your supposed “present” life you experience 420 other lives, you have to die at some point in those other lives as well, and so on. So it’s a neverending life loop, and that basically means that you’re immortal. But at the same time, your brain will stop functioning after about seven minutes. This pasta pretty much states that we are forever living, but only until your “original” life ends. But there is also no way to know whether or not your “original” life is really the original, because it could just be the product of an earlier dying mind. The more you think about it, the more confusing it gets. Brilliant paradox, I would put it right up there with “This statement is false”.
This I have to say is bad because it’s not creepy……but good science 😉
Really makes you think.
420 lives what happens when you die in one of those 420 lives? Are there 420 lives in each of those deaths?
By this theory are we not somewhat immortal?
I’ve seen a story similar to this. It’s interesting how if this whole thing. Me commenting right now is just a memory. And you reading this comment is also just a memory and you might be laying in the middle of the street from being it by a car, or even have been stabbed and on the verge of death and the only thing you can cling to it your memory of reading this.
Good story btw 10/10
I have two theories to base off this:
1. Maybe we are actually going through our lives 420 times, but we don’t perceive it as so.
2. We see our lives over the course of seven minutes, but it feels like a second due to the fact that under certain conditions, our brains perceive time differently. Like when you close your eyes to sleep, but when you wake up it feels like a couple of minutes passed.
The whole theory behind the 420 lives is in 1 second you will remember 60 memories so in turn if you die and your brain stays intact for 7 extra minutes you would practically relieve 420 memories.
This is so F*cking scary
Though I like the concept of this CreepyPasta, I feel this is more an introductory paragraph than a story in and of itself.
Makes you think about life and what you’ve done with your life
the guy is already dead. How come he got information that only dead people posses
I do not get this, most of this is facts and how is this even a creepy-pasta? I do not see the mindfuck fuck i see the reality
Did not find this creepy or paranormal at all. Simply a statement of what happens in your mind at the point of death.
This is really good! Very creative and creepy.
5/5, short and creppy
Fact not creepy.
i like this pasta makes you think a little bit / very creepy just the thought that u may just be in a memory and actually your dead
420 blaze it m8
this really makes you think good going jester of sorts i love this pasta that makes rethink our entire existences
omg just died from trying to think about this. My brain has exploded. This is really good if you want to think about something.
Well that was very informational, but not really interesting, sorry. I give it a 2/10.
This isn’t even a pasta…. its just facts……
i see why this is labeled mindfuck
This is pretty good.
Looks like im not getting sleep.. .-. well i rarely do as it is but still. also by the way guys, for those who don’t get to put it simply pretty sure its saying right now is one of those moments (or possibly soon) when your dead and your brain is just going through the memory’s quickly to reduce stress.
i dont get it but it is kinda sorta cool i guess
its not scary at all
So, does this mean i should be very afraid should memories suddenly flood my thoughts?
Philosophical, yeah, but not creepy.
really make you think
interesting facts but not really creepy in my opinion; well written though! short, sweet, and clean is always good!
This makes me think. You did a great job!
This was interesting because it was very factual
Maybe I’m missing something, but I didn’t find this creepy at all. It’s an interesting thought, but not the scariness I’ve come to know and love on this site.
Ooooooooooooooooooooooo this made my head hurttttttttttttt. 9.9/10
Please don’t mind but it was bad pasta but I have to give u less marks
420 blaze it, m8.
Definitely needed to re-read it to make any sense of it, but I liked it anyway.
Good pasta. Makes u think in a different way.
Sweet! I die….. 420 times? WOW
I die 420 times…. WOW
It took me a little bit of time to understand, but once I finally got it, it was awesome!!! 😀
That was auctly sick! I never saw it like that!
Good to know
Is it implying that if i gone to a near death experience. It means that all memories from the moment i have written this comment and the moment i readed this story is a memory that i am remembering from the moment that i am dying XD. This story should be rated high!
not creepy at all but interesting and really short
This one really did give me a mindfuck sort of feel towards the end.
I wasn’t sure if I was keeping pace throughout the pasta, But the ending, In my opinion atleast was definitely worth the little read.
It really doesn’t feel like the story is leading up to that one moment, but at the same time it kind of does.
This story does something to your mind that I love copypastas doing that just leave you in a state of mindfuck statue-still reconsideration and this copypasta definitely did justice.
A great read.
I don’t know why, but I always love the small ones more! This proves my point 🙂
Wait, wait.. 420? as in 420 blaze it?
This pasta makes sense that it’s tagged “science”, but definitely could have had an interesting twist, such as the facts that he had just stated being what the reader will witness, or something more interesting like that.
Is this an education article??
THIS A PASTA?
This is crap, I asked for a creepypasta not a factfile about death.
Mysterious and confusing… I love it.
Amazing and very thought provoking!
It is so weird… it kind of proves a theory I have where your energy transfers into another one’s soul. a soul is just the energy that keeps the body moving. very interesting.
Oh. Ummm… Jeff!!! I need you to kill me!!!
this remind s me of a theory me and my brother thought about, our life flashes before our eyes when we die, but who says we are currently experiencing that flash, deja vu when you realize all this happened before. I recently moved into a new house, but i remember being in the place long before.
I like it
HOLY CRAP THIS IS TRIPPY definitely a 11/10
more of a weird, fun fact than a story…
although it mayfeel like a second, its like a dream. for you the second is true, but for everyone else, it would be like you were asleep for maybe 3-4 mins. so really, that 7 mins could just be one life time. 10/10 pasta, would definitely recomend to all readers.
REEEEEEALLY GOOD 10/10
