This is a question that's been circling my head ever since I heard one of the theories why Ash from Pokemon doesn't age being that he was actually heavily injured at the beginning of his adventure and is stuck in a coma dreaming of his journey.

So I started wondering: Would someone choose to be in a coma if it let them live in their perfect fantasy world?

You'd always have the risk of waking up to reality. You risk your body dying before you wake up. You don't know you're in a coma.

My question: Would you choose to be in a coma if it let you live in your perfect fantasy world?

Does it really matter in the first place though? I mean we could all just be hallucinating or dreaming right now.

What happens if I am really just a butterfly dreaming to be a man?

Anyhow I'd rather not be in a coma living out a "perfect" dream world. I want genuine feelings with others.

The only way I would choose this option is if the coma was medically necessary. (For me, that means full body paralysis with no hope of recovery.) But without that situation? No. My life is quiet, sure, but I'm not so desperate for a fantasy that I would abandon my real life and family for a fake one.

But your actual body would suffer. How long would you last in coma before they pull the plug anyway?

Shit.

No :/

No. It would seem by your own words that I have a choice of this when my coma begins. I choose no. I don't want a fake paradise that I'll just wake up from.

yes. :C
