This account seems highly striking to me, and probably is one of the best evidence of the afterlife to date.
The fact that his frontal cortex was shown to be inactive for days on all of his medical tests during the coma is fascinating. The frontal cortex has
shown to control thoughts and could almost be called a central executive. If the frontal cortex is down, no thoughts will exist. That means no dreams,
no consciousness, nothing. Yet, he still managed to recite these experiences. On top of that, no abnormal brain activity other than his frontal cortex
being down was shown, further suggesting that his experience was not a matter of the brain. If it WAS due to his brain, some activity would have been
shown on the frontal lobe, or some other abnormal activity on other parts of the brain.
If you look online at other sources, you can see in more detail from his own mouth (can't be bothered to search and quote them myself to be honest
haha), and that he originally tried to describe his own experiences from a neuro-scientific view-point. Something he is obviously an expert in, but
was still unable to do. He seems to be a highly intelligent man, being a professer at Havard and all...
This all either means two things: He's lying, which in itself is doubtable as this would be ruining his own reputation as a neuroscientist, or he did
indeed have a near death experience.
I am usually a skeptic in regards to a lot of things, but as I said, this case is striking.
