Have we conclusively found the answer to our 'after death' experience?

A brand new scientific study has recommended that dying rats experience an abnormal course of extreme neural activity throughout their final moments of existence. This enlarged brain operation may be in keeping with (and thusly explain) Human accounts of near or after death experiences, as reported by many people around the world.

Approximately a 5th of all individuals who have survived a cardiac arrest have reported having an 'After Death Experience' or ADE. This is sort of an alarming stat, principally as the ADE tends to have a profound effect on the existence of that survivor. Having an ADE is seen by many as certain proof of an spirit world or even a continuation of that person's soul after passing away.

In the same way, a 'Near Death Experience' (or NDE) is considered being parallel to the ADE, but obviously occurs while the patient is still technically alive. Many individuals who experience NDE's report a floating sensation or 'Out of Body Experience' (OBE), as well as encounters with angels, dead family and loved ones. Both NDE and ADE survivors often portray traversing a long tunnel towards an extreme light.

Negotiations of life after death seems in early scriptures, archaeological sites and many following works of philosophy and have fascinated (and frightened) Persons, no matter of creed, ethnic group or culture, since time immemorial.

After convalescing from a surgical procedure in 1979, Jazmyne Cidavia-DeRepentigny of Hull, Georgia, USA, reported a typical NDE tale which was ultimately published in the book 'Beyond The Light' by P.M.H Atwater in 1994. Like many people, Jazmyne recounts particulars of her surgery that may be very complicated to obtain were she lying.

Jazmyne claims that "I was perched over my body. I could see and listen to all which was being said and done. I left the area for a short while and then returned to where my body lay. I knew why I died. It is because I could not breathe. There was a tube down my throat and the medical staff did not have an oxygen mask on my nose. I had also been given too much sedative".

She went on to illustrate her attempts to remove the tube from her throat from a relatively disturbing account.

Prior to that aforementioned study, it was established undeniable fact that brain activity ceases once the heart stops. This has now been demonstrated as being untrue, at least so far as rats are concerned. It's also the strongest presumption to date regarding the reasons of ADEs, OBEs and NDEs.

One of those scientists responsible for these results, Dr. George Mashour of the University of Ann Arbour, Michigan, USA said the team was "amazed with the high levels of activity" in the rodents. "In reality, at near-death lots of recognized electrical signatures of consciousness exceeded levels found in the waking condition, suggesting that the brain is capable of well-organized electric activity in the course of the initial stage of clinical death." He said.

The team's lead scientist, Dr. Jimo Borjigin added that "This report tells us that drop of oxygen or equally oxygen and glucose during cardiac arrest can stimulate neural activity that's characteristic of conscious processing,"

However, Dr. Martin Coath in the University of Plymouth, UK was a little critical of the team's findings.

Dr. Coath said, because the rats were anaesthetized, the findings better demonstrated the unconscious brain's reaction to the dangerous deficit of blood flow and oxygen. He also said that the study hadn't essentially showed that any 'heightened conscious processing' had actually taken place, signifying the wording of the conclusion was "a bit of a stretch". He commented that, while the results were "genuinely interesting" they were as well "hardly amazing".

The effects of the study will little doubt be of great notice to numerous within the scientific kinship, also as religious groups, those interested in the paranormal and individuals who have experienced an ADE or NDE.
