Near-death experiences are 'electrical surge in dying brain'
(visit the link for the full news article)
From bright white lights to out-of-body sensations and feelings of life flashing before their eyes, the experiences reported by people who
have come close to death but survived are common the world over.
However, studying this in humans is a challenge, and these visions are little understood.
To find out more, scientists at the University of Michigan monitored nine rats as they were dying.
In the 30-second period after the animal's hearts stopped beating, they measured a sharp increase in high-frequency brainwaves called gamma
These pulses are one of....
dying rats brain convoultions (gamma oscillations) are not whats happening in human NDEs...
it is completely in error to associate the two reflex actions whose only linkage is the chemical-electrical process of all animals' brains
the human NDE is more a set seqyence that happens because of brain stress/trauma and might be more alligned with massive releases of endorphins to
the nervous ystem... those chemical releases are thought (by some) to mimic the experiences of '___' which is a certain tryptamine SEE:
myself I go along with that line of thought...
becuse there does not seem to be mystical or spiritual progressions in a NDE...it all seems a mindane reaction by our minds to 'come-to-grips' with
the nearness/immeduacy of our moment of death
i expect NDEs are the typical persons unconscious awareness (at that lower level of comprehension) of being in a terminal state....
in religion they innaccurately refer to that state as being "In Paradise
"... where the NDE gives the person the choice of returning to
the living OR staying in a state of Ecstacy (being high) for eternity...which many NDE survivors speak of
hell i been there, making that choice twice before --- 1972 & 1997
