Some of the themes I noticed: Falling or leaping, sun and sun beams, a guide to greet you upon death, calmness when realizing you are going to (or just have) died, parents and children and/or friends and pets, both on the living side and as seen from the other side, the OBE, a continuation after the event, reincarnation/rebirth, outer space, hell and paradise, darkness or not being able to see, doors, elevators, clouds, cliffs or mountain tops, a beach, deathbed in the ICU (I see you?), birds, life review, the cosmic joke, inner monologue, living death, literal birth after death, righting wrongs from previous lives, remembering past lives, making a choice.


Now match those up with the author.

LOL. Some of them overlap. Across writers and non-writers alike. I think there are bots created to do things like that. Deep data ya know. It is the future!

Nice subject, btw! Seems like you really sparked the imagination on this one!

The CIA told me what to submit, I think it's some sort of personality test they're running.

Phew! I was expecting it was one of those "voices in your head" type things.

Nothing scary about the CIA running us lab rats around every once in a while. Judging by my expanding waist line I need the exercise!

How the hell do you think the CIA talks to me, on the phone?

At your Masonic meetings silly! Then they slip you a piece of paper at the repast. Nothing as hi-tech as cell phone. My word!
