Near death experience when DOA at the hospital. Can this be explained by science or is it paranormal?

NDE Story

I woke up in the hospital. I had no idea what was going on. I was later told (after a week of amnesia) that I had been in a near fatal car accident. I had actually died on the table when they brought me in to the emergency room. They revived me. In the aftermath, the memories of the wreck came to me in violent dreams. This film is the visualization of those dreams.

P.S. The car in the video is what was left of my MR2 after the wreck.

NDE Investigations

Investigation of several sources of Near Death Experiences, including the weirdly fascinating drawings that young kids did after they had experienced near-death experiences. There is a haunting and eerie familiarity about them, and yet in some ways they avoid the stereotypes NDEs often contain.

The Human Brain (DMT) and NDE

Does DMT play a role in near death experiences? Clip from an episode of the magical Egypt series featuring Rick Strassman.

Endogenous DMT, produced in the human brain, is involved in certain psychological and neurological states. As DMT is naturally produced in small amounts in the brains and other tissues of humans, and other mammals, some believe it plays a role in promoting the visual effects of natural dreaming, and also near-death experiences and other mystical states.

Western and Eastern mystical traditions are replete with descriptions of a blinding bright white light accompanying deep spiritual realization. This "enlightenment" usually is the result of a progression of consciousness through various levels of spiritual, psychological, and ethical development. All mystical traditions describe the process and its stages.

Near Death Experiences (NDE)

What is a Near Death Experience?
Is it real?

Is there a scientific explanation or is it really paranormal?

NDE - A Near Death Experience or NDE is defined as the following:

  • The experience of being close to death but surviving.
  • A sensation of detachment from one's body, the presence of a tunnel of light, the apparent viewing of one's own body from on high, and similar manifestations, experienced by people whose heart and brain have temporarily ceased to function.
  • An experience that is reported by people who clinically die, or come close to actual death and are revived.
  • A phenomenon (paranormal) in which a person clinically dies or comes very close to death only to be revived and then can recall in great detail stories of spiritual worlds and other supernatural events.
  • An experience claimed by many who came close to death or were declared dead medically before being brought back to life.

It is estimated that 18% of people who have been resuscitated after having cardiac arrest have reported a near death experience.

Near Death Experiences

Can Science Explain Them?

Can Science Explain NDE's?

Near Death Experiences - Some Scientists believe that NDE's are a form of 'rapid eye movement (REM) intrusion' which is a sleep disorder. In this disorder a persons mind can actually wake up before their body does which creates a feeling of detachment, a sense of being out of ones body and even hallucinations.

Some scientists believe this REM intrusion is triggered by some form of trauma the person receives such as a cardiac arrest, which then triggers this action.
Can science explain a NDE? Of course, but it will take many years of research and what we now think of NDE's as paranormal they may actually have an obvious explanation.

Paranormal or Reality?

The Truth

NDE & the Human Brain - The truth of the matter is that scientists really don't understand much of the human brain at all. The human brain is a highly complex organ which will takes years and years to understand and chances are we will never fully understand all the functions of the human brain.

Many view the NDE as the precursor to an afterlife experience, claiming that the NDE cannot be adequately explained by physiological or psychological causes, and that the phenomenon conclusively demonstrates that human consciousness can function independently of brain activity.

Many NDE-accounts seem to include elements which, according to several theorists, can only be explained by an out-of-body consciousness.

For example, Michael Sabom states that one of his contacts accurately described a surgical instrument she had not seen previously, as well as a conversation that occurred while she was under general anesthesia.

In another account, from a prospective Dutch NDE study, a nurse removed the dentures of an unconscious heart attack victim, and was identified after his recovery as the one who removed them. This surprised her, as he had been in a deep coma and undergoing cardio-pulmonary resuscitation at the time.

Scientists still don't fully understand why the human body needs sleep for example, therefore it is up to you to decide on what really is a NDE.
