    Why do we feel death's presence ?

    Have you ever been to a persons house that is terminal and noticed you can feel the presence of death? or at places like the World trade center site.  This is not intended to be callus in any way. Just wondering why do we feel it and what is your take on it?

    Our instincts pick up on a lot of things. Some of these things can be visual, verbal, or simply a feeling as you describe. Sometimes we just cannot explain why we can feel death's presence until well after these feelings hit us, if we are ever able to explain them. Many people are afraid of death and keen to pick up on it when visiting people or places that are linked to it and our bodies are designed to fight for life and they are keen to the presence of death.

    This is linked to psychologically priming yourself and your senses to what you feel is or should be present - ie projecting into the blank canvas.

    To feel death present when you do not know of any associations too death in that location is a different thing.

    Beyond this remember too that it is part of our human make-up to be aware of our own mortality and this may well be the underlying concern that shrouds you/others who are in these locations where death is happening or has happened.

    I wasn't feeling death's presence until I saw that picture on your question, bmcoll3273.  Now I think I will have nightmares about it.

    What I believe is that a person's brain is wired to believe that he or she has felt death. It's a suggestive fact that was made subconsciously or by other people, making that person believe something that wasn't suppose to there. I've recently made a hub that may be related to this topic. Try reading it, it could be an eye opener. http://joniah2884.hubpages.com/hub/Fictional-Reality
