I’m curious...

Is it possible to die of too much knowledge? Does knowing too much make your brain unstable? Is there a maximum amount of stuff your brain can know before it either has to get rid of some stuff or just not learn anything new?

Right but doctors and emergency crews do give pure oxygen to more critical patience who need them. Often times through ER. And it is or was such a problem the military, our military specifically has a name for that. Forced Hydration... it's a very real thing. On that note let your mind wonder how many times this happens in our armed services.... youd probably be surprised actually.... I know of about 3 people who died when I was in basic training long ago. And this happens all the time. But also true, probably equally the same amount are effected by dehydration. One of those three I mentioned knowing about, would have brain damage the rest of his life. Let that swirl in your mind a bit. The kid was 18-19 mabe. Crazy world...

Does that mean if a person from La Rinconada in peru at 5,100m above sea level, goes to visit the lowest point Dead Sea in Israel 418ish below sea level, they could possibly die from too much oxygen?

Ok, so as long as I drink just the right amount of water if I am thirsty from time to time and eat healthy and breathe normal amounts of oxygen every day I should be good and not have to worry about a thing, right?

You have to be a special kind of bell-end to die from water intoxication, a proud recipient of the lifetime achievement Darwin award for total lack of self-preservation sense and all around general stupidity...
