However, Strassman also indicates that the pineal gland and endogenous '___' are central during extraordinary events such as birth, death, and the near-death experience (NDE). To support this view Strassman notes that the anatomy of the pineal gland, suspended in cerebrospinal fluid outside of the blood-bathed brain, is independent enough to resist activation by normal stresses, and it is also optimally positioned to deliver '___' directly to the middle brain regions. Furthermore, access to the brain in this way eliminates the need for '___' transportation in the blood – where it would be broken down by MAO enzymes anyway – so it also does not need a pumping heart for delivery, and may continue to be active in the brain even after the heart has stopped beating.
The NZ Resuscitation Council give the following, unreferenced, figures:
"32C - Altered mental state; 28C - Hypotension, decreasing consciousness; 27C - Shivering ceases; 24C - Asystole, coma; 20-26C - Respirations cease; 13C - lowest recorded survivor from accidental hypothermia; 9C - lowest recorded survivor from controlled hypothermia.

I'd like to interject, before all the atheist nuts move in for the kill.
There you go, if you can kill a human, make sure there brain is not corrupted in anyway shape or form, bring that human back to life 24 hours later, and that person says there is nothing well damn that's pretty hard to beat.
