I sat on my bike, in front of the car that was about to run me over for what felt like hours, having a little conversation with myself. I was commenting on things like what a nice hood the car had. I was also talking about this is what that angel was talking about, that I saw years before. Then the car ran me over. I went right under. I was told people lifted the tail end of the car off me, I don't know. But as for the other side, well, let me just say that I was eternal is the best way to describe it. As for light and darkness, it was irrelevant. I drifted back into my body on the road and I started to yell, 'Don't let them cut me open, don't let them cut me open.' I guess I knew I was on my way to a hospital. There was a crippled man that placed a pillow under my head as I lay on the road. There was an ambulance ride. The side of my head that was hanging off was stitched back on. Family doctor had to punch me in the head to knock me out.
