A TikToker is going viral for sharing a bizarre theory about the afterlife and what he thinks could happen to us after death.

The TikToker Brandon Monhollen was responding to a question regarding conspiracy theories asked by another TikToker.

According to Monhollen, he read about the theory recently.

The theory about death explains the reason why dying people or people who already died see "a light at the end of the tunnel."

The light at the end of the tunnel is actually a light to a new life such as a hospital light. As the person dies, they are reborn on the other side and come out crying.

Perhaps babies cry because they subconsciously remember everything from their past life but as they grow up, they forget everything about their past life and focus on their current life.

Occasionally patches of memory from their previous life may stay behind causing the feeling of déja vu that some people experience.

Monhollen's theory seemed to resonate with many people who said that it all made sense. However, for others, it was more like an episode of the show Black Mirror.

The exact explanation for déjà vu is still not fully understood, and there are several theories that attempt to explain this phenomenon.

One of the most widely accepted theories suggests that déjà vu occurs when there is a delay or glitch in the brain's processing of sensory information. In other words, the brain receives and processes information from the environment, but there is a delay in the way that the information is stored and retrieved. As a result, when the brain receives similar information again, it may interpret it as a familiar experience, leading to the feeling of déjà vu.

Another theory suggests that déjà vu may be related to memory. According to this theory, déjà vu occurs when a current experience triggers a memory from the past, but the person is not consciously aware of the memory. As a result, the person may feel like they have experienced the current situation before, even though they cannot recall the previous experience.

Other possible explanations for déjà vu include neurological factors, such as epilepsy or brain damage, or psychological factors, such as anxiety or stress. However, further research is needed to better understand the underlying causes of déjà vu.
