ABSTRACT: The literature concerned with experiences of the dying contains
numerous accounts reporting the sudden return of mental clarity shortly
before death. These experiences can be described as Terminal Lucidity (TL).
The most peculiar cases concern patients suffering from mental disability
including mental illness or dementia. Despite the potential relevance of TL for
developing new forms of therapies and for elaborating an improved understanding
of the nature of human consciousness, very little has been published
on this subject.
deathbed visions: having visions of deceased relatives, friends or
religious figures, and often communicating with them...
seemingly veridical spatial clairvoyance and correct future
predictions related by the dying...
telepathic impressions or apparitions of the dying person at the
moment of death, experienced by close relatives or friends not
present at the bedside of the dying person...
synchronistic acoustic or physical phenomena such as knocking
sounds, hearing music, moving of doors, falling and breaking of
objects, odd behavior of electrical devices, and stopping of clocks....
emanations of mists, shapes, lights or a radiance from dying
the ability to perform bodily movements or skills shortly before
death which seemed impossible before...
the (re-) emergence of normal or unusually enhanced mental
abilities in dull, unconscious, or mentally ill patients shortly
before death, including considerable elevation of mood and
spiritual affectation, or the ability to speak in a previously
unusual spiritualized and elated manner.

My grandfather is going through the same but if I automatically assumed spirits I would lose my sanity really quickly. You can't live in that world and pay your bills at the same time.
And by that world, I mean a fake spirit world.
I mean, just you saying it's spirits I feel offended actually.. because I know it's not.. for any of us.
Sorry if I offended you in the process... but i'm going through the same thing daily. And it's painful.
He was telling me about a little girl who was having her arm cut off by a black man today in the kitchen, that's the extent of these visions. You want to call those spirits??
