Near-Death Experience


http://www.dreamsemantics.com/2009/07/near-death-experience/

There is no proven scientific basis for NDE or near-death experience; in fact, the term was even included in most skeptic dictionaries in and out of the internet but still many people swear by it, insisting that NDE is true and they did experience it first-hand.

People who claim to have experienced this phenomenon vary widely in recollection. Some may even recall seeing a bright light that’s very far from where they stood while some saw their whole life being replayed before them–right from the day they were born up to the last scene they saw prior to NDE. Almost half of those who experienced NDE also went through OBE or out-of-body experience wherein they saw their own bodies being operated on or surrounded by doctors in attempt to revive their consciousness. These experiences were reported by those who have nearly died or actually stopped breathing for some time only to come back to life afterwards.

Even now, there have been debates on the possibilities of near-death experience and why this event occurs to these people. Skeptic firmly stood beside the only existing scientific explanation for NDE and that is the fact that when the brain is being denied of oxygen during those precious seconds when the body wasn’t breathing, it causes hallucination to the person in question. Of course, this conclusion is denied by experts who support NDE and those who believe in life after death and souls living way beyond our physical beings. While it happens to most people who unexpectedly experienced near-death events, NDE cannot be induced or triggered if it’s done intentionally as documented by experts.
