sodhi... it's a good thing u survived. i dunno u personally, but u make this place a lil more interesting with ur completely incomprehensible messages. i had to read what u wrote about 5 times before i understood what u had said. but that could also be due to the fact that i just got home from a really long day at uni.

newho... i have no answer to why things seem to slow down in moments of utter terror. i'll think about it and i'll let u know if i figure anything out.

take care u crazy kid...

There is no defnitive explanation from psychologists and neurologists yet on the cause of time perception slowing during a crash. Generally it is still believed dopamine (neurotransmitter) effects the function of the ganglia brain structure which slows time percpetion, particularly in response to a whole barrage of sensory information coupled with fight or flight response (shutting down other body systems through the CNS and ANS systems).

Similar effects have been found with those using psychotropic drugs such as LSD (again which affects dopamine levels); that initial flooding can seriously distort perception of time. However, this is not a definitive explanation.
