Whether there is life after death is a question which has plagued humanity since the dawn of man. However, one person now believes he has the answer. After suffering a cardiac arrest, a man named Dave M believes he saw the afterlife.
Dave was only clinically dead for a matter of minutes but said that his experience felt like a lifetime.
He said the afterlife was a surreal place where he had a higher level of consciousness.
Dave wrote on the Near Death Experience Research Foundation: “I felt myself fall out of my body. It felt like I was peeled out of my body.
“What seemed like a couple seconds more, I woke up. But I wasn’t where I thought I had fallen. I was in some other realm.
“At first, I didn’t know I had died because I was totally conscious. I was in total awe and amazement at my surroundings. I was surrounded by a green mist.
“There was a low level of light coming from one side. It seemed to be coming from behind the mist, like I was in some sort of void.
“It only took me a couple seconds to realise that I had died. I found myself in a sitting position and I didn’t feel any pain.
“I felt like I was surrounded and wrapped in a warm blanket of fog.
They found a huge surge in brain activity in the final 30 seconds of the rodents’ lives.
Jimo Borjigin, PhD, associate professor of molecular and integrative physiology and associate professor of neurology, said: “This study, performed in animals, is the first dealing with what happens to the neurophysiological state of the dying brain.
“We reasoned that if near-death experience stems from brain activity, neural correlates of consciousness should be identifiable in humans or animals even after the cessation of cerebral blood flow.”
Essentially, if the brain is more active, one might have vivid visions, leading them to believe they had seen the afterlife.
Dr Borjigin added: “The prediction that we would find some signs of conscious activity in the brain during cardiac arrest was confirmed with the data.”. Credit: amaznews
