I would like to know how anesthesia swallows time. I mean you go under and immediately wake up. Why?
Sure feels that way, doesn't it? Drug induced relativity? Amnestic/hypnotic effects of drugs. The rest of us in the OR are aware of every second though nice to meet you.
Because you don't dream. It is certainly a very, very strange feeling. When I had surgery, I had to see my scar before I would believe that the surgery had taken place! But in reality I knew that it had because I woke up in a different room, and lying on my side (I was lying on my back when I was put out).
I think that that is the reason though, because you are as unconscious as its possible to be - you're not just asleep in the usual sense of the word. Fifty years could pass in this state, and you would still think that less than a minute had passed.
