I remember sitting on the stern of Crystal Symphony an evening during an 9 day long Pacific Ocean crossing from LA to New Zealand (without stop).... it was dark, there were stars and the time was a few minutes past 4 in the morning.
To create a mystery nobody would ever have known the answers too, all I had to do was to climb over the stern railing and jump.
How horrific it must be to do so, feel the fall, feel the impact into the water and then see the fully lit ship quickly disappear never to be seen again. Truly a scary scenario.
The commonly held belief is that the drowning person goes down three times and supposedly sees their past life flash before their eyes.
As a young boy, my lifelong friend was on a family holiday and was playing in the sea off Britain. A large wave swept him off his feet and he was dashed against a sea breakwater. This injured a rib, and even to this day he has a protruding rib. He was in the process of drowning, struggling and repeatedly submerging. He assures me he DID see his albeit short life flash before his eyes, before some bloke grabbed him and hauled him from the water.
So, there you are. Is YOUR past life worth getting into difficulties in the water over just so you can see a mental appraisal?
