Hello all. Since my mother passed in November '08, I've found myself becoming more and more interested in what could possibly be after this current
life. I was raised with the common belief that Jesus was the son of god, etc. I even did a little time in a catholic school.
Entering into my teen years though, I discovered atheism, and never really looked back. Granted, I obtained some more "earth" based beliefs, and
still agreed that the teachings of biblical beings were still good lessons that I still to this day believe should be shared by us.
With my mother passing away, I've nearly become obsessed with finding an answer to what may be out there (over there?). My atheist side believes that
when we die, it's no different than the moment that we fall asleep, or like turning a light switch off. That side of me though came under stress, and
suddenly one night I had my first panic attack because of this thought.
Since then I've pushed myself to learn more about the spirit. I've absorbed as much information as I can about NDEs, OBEs, and what I believe to be
the most important piece of information: '___'.
To get to my point though, I want to focus on the NDE experience of Pam Reynolds. The doctors say that she was purposefully made brain dead for a
surgery, and that there was zero brain activity. Is it just an inability for us to detect the brain functions, are they really not there, or
So, here is the solution to answering this question (IMO):
Scientist have successfully removed a rat's brain and connected it to a computer, which then in turn allowed the rat brain to control a remote
control "body" (a car in this example). Using this knowledge, IF the brain is actually still active when an NDE occurs, then it's only a matter of
the brain no longer being able to control the body, not the brain being dead.
What I am wondering is this: If we were to immediately remove the brain from a human once they have passed, and can connect it to a computer in a
similar fashion that they did the rats, would we be able to communicate with the deceased person, and if so, how long would we be able to sustain them
in such a state.
I'm not a scientist, or a doctor, heck, i didn't even graduate high school, so there is no chance that I will ever be able to do this stuff. I just
want to share the idea with fellow atsers and see what they think, and hopefully, if i dont sound like a nutcase, maybe the RIGHT person will read
this, be inspired, and carry out the experiment and get the answers.
So what do you all think? Am I wrong that this would be a possible solution to our deli ma?
