The brain can stay alive on tick-over for at least ten minutes after "brain death." that means you will feel your organs being cut out of your body.

In March, doctors at a Canadian intensive care unit discovered that one person had persistent brain activity for up to 10 minutes after they turned off their life support machine, but three others did not.

For more than 10 minutes after the medics declared the person clinically dead, brain waves, like those we experience in our sleep, continued to occur.
Man is a tool created by the Universe to mark time.
