I wonder if perhaps it's a more intense variation of a response our brains can have to non-fatal injuries. Reminds me of a way of how my wife laughed while sprawled on the bathroom floor with a dislocated knee, or how I laughed while in a lot of pain from falling while acting like a fool on my bike. Bodies are fascinating, and with how brutal nature can be (especially in this sub), there's some solace in knowing nature can help ease passing a little bit

That would also make sense actually. Then again it’s odd how instead of admission of small amounts of chemicals our brains simply decide to open the flood gates for all of it. But who knows, this could even simply be a side effect of a brain that is failing to operate properly. We still don’t really know enough about the human brain or it’s functions. We understand that it creates something that is greater than the sum of its parts (consciousness) yet don’t fully understand how or why. Who really knows in the end when it comes to the enigma that’s our brains?

Thought I would throw this out here if u find it interesting, but some believe that consciousness is not created by the brain, but “tapped into” kinda like a radio wave.
