The negative experiences have long since been relegated to the painless portions of the memory. The victim is apparently unable to coexist with this painful memory. Intolerable situations often lead to other solutions such as a personal, religious conversion, a situation sometimes difficult to detect unless the patient volunteers the information. Thus, hell cases are not reported. Hell cases remain unreported due to personal ego and/ or embarrassment. Patients don't want to discuss a matter that confirms ultimate failure in life, an overwhelming defeat, or a slap in the face. Since the experience destroys self-esteem, pride conceals the error. Nothing more than human nature.

Maybe those that experience hell are not allowed to return? Anyone would 'repent' immediately to change their destination , there by 'cheating' the devil out of a catch--wouldn't you think he'd try to hold on, once he had them?

I remember an NDE variation of sorts myself some time ago but it isn't like the classical type often described in the literature I've seen. I was trying to cross a busy street in a foreign country. Time kind of got warped at the moment of crossing. There was an oncoming taxi that was going too fast to be able to stop if I had crossed at that moment. For a split second I felt hands (or more like some kind of energy that was metaphorically like hands) hold me back & at the same moment, time seemed to have slowed down or warped. It was a very distinctive, hard to describe feeling. There was no one around me.
