His father, who had had first aid training in the past, tried to resuscitate his son by giving him mouth to mouth and heart massage.
They were about to stop because the boy had been clinically dead for three hours and 18 minutes - but then a miracle happened.

wow funny. Even skeptics like Sagan and Hawkins don’t even use "all". All evidence does not point that consciousness is in the mind. If it did 100% we would not have this conversation. There are arguments on both sides, and BOTH have really good arguments. We do not know what’s on the other side, so to say we do know is stupid. 100 years of science, and we can say we figured out the universe and life......Now that is a stupid belief.

I am aware that it is very well documented as i have studied it myself. However, it is very possible that it resides in our brain because it may be that our brain is used to decode the information from our soul/consciousness, into our physical reality.
When you are out of body, all your thoughts, memories, your personality, are taken with you, so that makes it very hard to believe our thoughts and memories are only stored in our brain. The strong evidence for it however, still leaves open the fact that OBE's may just be a hallucination. But in the end your beliefs are your beliefs. However if you haven't fully looked into each side, then you may be biased in your beliefs.
Why are folks "starring" this post???

I've heard that when you die, your brain floods with '___', which is a hallucinogenic chemical that is also released during REM sleep.
So, he probably did see his grandmother, in the same kind of way I've "gone to school wearing just my underwear" kind of way -- know what I mean?
here is how i perceive death: think of what your consciousness was like before you were born

NDE's are a result of the body dying, the lack of oxygen and a specific mixture of chemical processes cause them. I have never seen any evidence to prove they are more than that and absolutely no explanation as to why most people have no such experiences, if floating off to magical land is what happens when you die then why does it not happen to everyone? I have a close friend that died and was resuscitated, he had no NDE...does he not have a soul? Like i said, i believe it is a very specific mix of things that cause them hence not everyone experiences them.
And if it is a basic biological process...then I have the same question you do...why doesn't everyone have one?
If it is a chemical reaction of '___'...why doesn't everyone experience it? If the lack of oxygen causes this...why doesn't everyone experience it?
It doesn't seem like a very "scientific" explaination if only a few experience it, but it is a basic biological process.

Cold water and temperatures DO slow the rate of degradation of tissue, for the same reason we keep our produce and meat in the Fridge.
'___' or not We are talking a 3 year old here folks.
It makes me wonder if he as a 3 yr old, had ever even met his Great Grandmother in real life before, let alone knew who she even was before this episode occurred ?
Also, why would he make this experience up in the first place ?
