No is no problem,just that is unbelievable,because all the NDEs are related to violent events,mine is related to voluntary lift to heaven by God due to some events of which I don't want to talk about,and people usually don't believe this and they can call you(me) a liar.But I just did that(tell the story).Anyway after that I start dreaming every future event in day to day life and at global scale,all major events.

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... Almost exactly like getting beyond high on marijuana, to the point where you are stoned out of your gourde...
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..

I read about this, back in the eighteen century in the french Revolution people were decapitated.One scientist make a deal with his friend to see how much time he can blink from his eyes,after beheaded.He blinked about two minutes or so,before closing his eyes forever.
Basically, you feel really good and you experience the most intense hallucinogen known to man.
you are right from the scientific point of view there is only one valid explanation.
This chemical will cause mass hallucinations, and outer body experiences. This is the reason some people have heard or seen things such as bright lights or voices/noises.

Are you afraid of death? I've always said that I'm not afraid of death, I'm afraid of dying.
I am mot frustrated of anything,in order to get close to the truth you must debate,so you can find as many opinions as you can get,I think there are ways to make our passing more easier to the other world knowing that things are not that bad,that's the whole purpose of this thread.

It's a good topic for discussion, but you can't get frustrated at people's answers. The reality is, you have no idea what you are going to feel when you die...until you die.
