Life After Death Study Shows NDEs Are Not Hallucinations

(ORDO NEWS) — New research has come to one important conclusion: “Near-death experiences” are a real thing, even if we can’t explain them.

Countless people have claimed that their life “flashed before their eyes” or that they actually left their body and went somewhere else at the time of death.

Critics call these experiences hallucinations or fantasies, but researchers at New York University’s Grossman School of Medicine say something else is actually happening.

A team of researchers from several medical disciplines – including neuroscience, critical care, psychiatry, psychology, social sciences and humanities – have tried to figure out what exactly constitutes a near-death experience…

The main conclusion is that these events do not have much in common with what people experience when they hallucinate or use psychedelic drugs. Instead, NDEs typically report five distinct events:

– Separation from the body with a heightened, expansive sense of consciousness and the knowledge that they are dying.
– Or they “travel” to another place.
– Some say that they are having a meaningful and focused review of their lives, including a critical analysis of all their past actions – in fact, their life flashed before their eyes.
– Some say they feel like they’re going to a place that feels like “home” to them.
– And the feeling of coming back to life.

The researchers note that near-death experiences usually cause a person to have a positive and long-term psychological transformation. The team notes that people who had negative and anxious experiences during a near-death experience did not experience similar changes.

The team found – it turns out scientists can actually see the physical changes that occur in the brain when a person is close to death.

Researchers have found the presence of gamma-ray activity and electrical spikes when people actually die. This is usually a sign of a heightened state of consciousness when scientists measure it using electroencephalography (EEG).

The findings further support the claims of people who say they “left their body” at the time of death.

The authors of the study note that advances in medicine over the past century have brought countless people back from the brink of death.

Lead study author Sam Parnia said, “The advent of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) has shown us that death is not an absolute condition, rather, it is a process that can potentially be reversed in some people even after it has begun.”

Parina continued… “What has made it possible to study death scientifically is that brain cells do not become irreversibly damaged within minutes of oxygen starvation in cardiac arrest. Instead, they ‘die’ within hours. This allows scientists to objectively study physiological and mental events that occur in connection with death.

The authors of the study concluded that neither physiological nor cognitive processes end completely at the time of death.
