In the Jack London short story, To Build a Fire, there are several stages that a person goes through when they begin to freeze to death. They are disorientation and a state of uncertainty, folowed by exhaustion. Then, even though he is quite clearly freezing, he feels very warm. He begins to think about death and how nice it might be to sleep. Finally, there is the acceptance of the inevitable.
