Astronomer Carl Sagan gave the keynote address at the CSICOP conference last year. To avoid possible embarrassment, I am sure that no mention was made that Sagan had earlier proposed a theory to explain another bugaboo of the committee, the near-death experience. Dr. Sagan presented his theory in a book on neurology which he entitled Broca's Brain (1979) [1:24:56] gizmo: His hypothesis was that those having near-death experiences were actually re-living their peri-natal experiences. He goes further than this in proposing that all religious experiences and even scientific theories are analogous to the birth experience. But Carl Sagan was not the first to propose a more scientific and less mystical explanation of near death phenomena, which many have experienced while undergoing life-and-death traumas.
(4) MOVING VERY RAPIDLY THROUGH A LONG, DARK TUNNEL. This would be the movement of the neonate through the birth canal in the process of being born.

The theory sounds plausible.
Until you think 3 seconds about it.
Then it falls apart, since more people are born each day in average than people die.
So .. in your theory .. where do these extra souls come from ?
