I'm not sure where to post this..I don't think it is an religious experience.
or is it.lol. I know most people have heard of spontanious combustion, like I have, but I've never heard anyone really explain why it happens.
How can someone busrt into flames..I just don't get it.
While the cause of Spontaneous Human Combustion remained a complete mystery for many years, it is generally accepted that an external source of ignition leading to a wick-effect fire, is the cause of the phenomena.
It would be generally accepted that the most probable reason for the appearance of SHC seems to be a non-spontaneous wick effect fire.
The wick effect theory essentially says that a person is burned through his/her own fats after being ignited, accidentally or otherwise. The clothed human body acts like an 'inside-out' candle: the human fat (the fuel source) is inside and the clothing of the victim (the wick) is outside. Hence there is a continuous supply of fuel, in the form of fat that melts and drips to the victim' s clothing. Fat contains a large amount of energy due to the presence of long hydrophobic chains.
I am not driven by people’ s praise and I am not slowed down by people’ s criticism.

thats really interesting, i was always curious about it ever since my buddy told me this story about some grandma who fell asleep in a rocking chair and died from burning to death due to SHC. the story was actually kinda funny (i feel terrible for saying that)

its not true... ive hered a bunch of stuff but the real deal is someone fell asleep on top of some fire retardent stuff and he fell asleep smoking a cigarette and manages to catch himself on fire and he didnt move cuz he was drunk...ltheres my therey and it sound more logical than altering dimentions
on a more serious note... i've seen this documentary about SHC in the discovery channel. they showed some pictures where the only remnants of such an event were mere limbs. another thing was the fire never seem to have spread elsewhere. it was weird because the flesh and bones were completely reduced to ashes, the furniture being uccupied by the victim was charred and nothing else.
My boyfriend heard some weirded out, like wicked science fiction type theory.
some people believe in alternate dimensions or universes. They say they are exactly the same thing as ours except somewhere else. the planes cross paths, and we cant see the people in the other dimension, and they cant see us. we go on with our lives without ever knowing that we could be eating breakfast at a diner next to ourselves in another dimension.
Anyways, like if thats not creepy enough to think about.
The SHC theory is that a person combusts when the two dimension planes cross, they walk through themself... like the version of them in another dimension.
it's a stretch but its cool to think about when youre trashed lol
