In: Biology Pvalensa commented May 2, 2021 Pain is your bodies way of telling your brain that what’s happening to your body is bad and needs to stop.

Pain is a trait that is as ancient as traits come to feel pain is essentially a prerequisite for being in the kingdom Animalia. Because pain isn’t really a specific thing its a reaction to essentially abnormal conditions that can vary from species to species and individual to individual. Although it’s probably impossible to know for certain the perception of pain I believe is related to severity and recovery time so if your wounds are inevitably fatal but slow to kill, yes, your body most likely will forego pain unlike if you’d recover from a similar injury. I believe, your brain most certainly knows you are gonna die before your consciousness realizes. 0 Answers ActiveVotedNewestOldest Register or Login Other Questions You Might Be Interested In: Object of a contract/legal relationship (law)Why does something like the gambler's fallacy hold true in an instance like the monte carlo roulette...Why would we still produce feces and let them out every 40 days or so if we stopped eating for a lon...Eli5: why does audio have such a big impact on our mood?When there are multiple gas stations in close proximity, what causes the difference in price?Why the electricity in our bodies can't power devices in our bodies (like a pacemaker).
