I was completely conscious and terrorized by what was happening and without ceasing to have physical convulsions caused by the electricity. I began having at the same time - what was clearly and with total awareness - a life review. I don't remember if this went back in time or began with my childhood, but it was as if living the actual life of other people and feeling the consequences of my actions on them. Everything I had done in my life had consequences. These consequences were felt and lived by me. I felt profound sadness, repentance and pain, which I will never forget. It was a fearful and unpleasant experience.
