Perhaps it was the other way around, perhaps this representation is more dreamlike than our eternal reality. After my NDE, I began researching what others had said about theirs. There are a couple of things that I found consistent with those whose experiences I accepted as most likely to be truthful. One of the biggies was that they said that the experience was more real than real. This has also recently been written about by some researchers, turns out I was right and that this is what most say.
I consider this place practice for the afterlife, it is an opportunity to be challenged and define ourselves and understand ourselves. How many people do you know that talk about what they would do if confronted by someone; but, when it happens they fold like a cheap paper cup. We have all had experiences where we did things that we thought we would not or did things that we never thought we could or would. Life is where those beliefs are tested and we demonstrate what we really believe.
I will not and have not ever gone into much detail about personal NDE, nor do I intend to online. I will say this, when you know you are about to die, you look at your life and ask what it meant and you see yourself for who you are, with all of life's issues left meaningless, you can see yourself clearly. I was okay with myself for the most part, none of us are perfect; but, I was good with my effort. The deepest truth in the universe that we can know is who we are and it takes a whole lifetime to do that. In my humble opinion.

I find the O.B.E fascinating. from what I been reading about peoples experiences online is that is that people can accurately describe whats going on around them .
I can agree with that , I have often pondered if this is just another stage of life , the first was in the womb then we are born , and then next step after we die . On the other hand what about people who are bad and do bad things who don't seem to learn , or who have abnormal brains that they cannot help themselves doing bad things or don't realize what they are doing is wrong. I think reincarnation could be a very strong possibly for those who didn't make it the first time around .
