We all are afraid of that moment that sooner or later will come.The problem is how we are facing that moment.
There are testimonies of different phenomena that occur when someone dies, like a clock that is stopping at the exact moment of death.
I am sure that things are different between real dying and the experience that people have in NDE,that's why no one find an answer to this.
Who can say but those who have passed and returned, and even they give different accounts, even if some give similar accounts (which could likely be due to having the expectation of something).
I think they reach a stage where they find a small part of the truth.

As someone who has died on more then one occasion and came back each and everytime the feeling is euphoric elation! No pain, no worries, no nothing but elation!
you mean the body cannot feel anything,no one can say what we feel in the moment of death or after...

Nothing. You cease to feel anything. You are no longer alive to feel. Its not like you can be dead and say "WOW! That REALLY hurt!".

My near death experience
When I was in High School many years ago I was in a terrible car accident where we flipped upside down into a river and were completely submerged.
I remember it clear as day. The car immediately filled up with water, there was no slow rising like you see in the movies. I was suspended upside down by my seat belt and my weight made me unable to release the buckle. Ironically I was the only passenger of the 4 of us to be wearing a seat belt, and the only passenger that was trapped. My friends had a breathing pocket on the floorboards of the car and underwater I could hear them calling my name as everyone was present but me.
I basically held my breath, waiting to die as I realized at the time the situation was utterly hopeless for me, and again I have a perfect clear memory of the event...for better or worse.
Here's the thing..as I held my breath there was no moment of desperation.. it was more like falling asleep.It was not like a clock stopping. In fact, it was rather peaceful. I was under water for 8 minutes or so, according to paramedics who were able to resuscitate me. Does this constitute death? I was certainly flatlined, and I certainly was not coming back without intervention of some sort...
My emotional range went like this, I immediately accepted what was happening and was aware I was going to die. I remember saying to myself, "well this is how I am going to die"... and I felt absolute peace about it after only a split second of anxiety. If I can relate it to any other experience, it is like the anxiety and subsequent relaxation you feel of when you are in a plane and it first starts taking off down the runway... that twinge of anxiety that goes away once you know things are OK..... My next thoughts were of my family, and wondering how they were going to take it, i felt sorry that they would be grieving for me... other than that I could hear my heartbeat slowing down as I held my breath.. then I just drifted off... [snip]
I can tell you there certainly was a period of nothingness, and in between the nothingness and consciousness, there is, for lack of a better term, "cognitive reasoning" where your brain is lucid and you basically have a choice to live or not.. It feels that your consciousness is separated from your body, I remember it clearly and is really for another thread....
But to answer your question, in my experience I was aware i was dying, and the actual moment of death was not bad at all.. rather one of the most serene moments was in that minute I was holding my breath, knowing I had nothing left in my life to fear..

Because no one know what we feel in the exact moment of death.
If you disagree, then tell me why
45 minutes is a long time.It's hard to return back to life after 45 minutes ,the brain cannot function and if so that person will remain with brain damage forever.

I died in 1986 and was gone for 45 minutes. It was just as if I went to sleep. No biggy. I remember everything from the otherside. I was at a much higher conciousness level. That's the best way to describe it.
I accept all the other opinion stated here as platform in order to analyze this phenomena,there is not only one truth about this, as long as there is no scientific proof of it.
Nonsense. You ask a question based on opinion, but are unwilling and/or incapable of discussing it, due to already having a preconceived notion that there is only one possible answer.
I understand your opinion and I respect it.This is a high spiritual thinking matter and not scientific.

Which one of them?
I don't understand your sentence
That is all the people are afraid of,those who realize their sins are the road to hell, those are the happy one
That one. I really don't understand what you're saying.
I would like to understand.
