I'll have few questions about passing out and dreaming. English is not my native language, and my biology knowledge is very limited. So bear with me.
- What exactly is blackout? (in a really simple way)
- Are there different types of blackout? (see below)
- Do fainting, passing out, and blacking out mean the same thing?
- Can someone have a dream/vision after loosing consciousness? (during blackout?)
I'm asking these because I had a similar experience and I'm trying to make sense of it.
We were goofing around and a friend of mine had me in an arm triangle. I suspect he choked me, because I lost consciousness for a few seconds, max 3. While in that state, I kind of had a dream or vision, whatever it is called. It felt like hours. This was a long time ago and I still remember the dream, but can't make sense of it. What I've seen was really interesting and I couldn't just let it go.
I'm not asking for dream analysis or anything, but the biological/neurological aspect of what happened, so don't get me wrong.
I'm also new in here, though not to stackexchange, so the tags might need a modification.
