The fragility of the human ego is so considerable that in order to convince itself that it will continue after physical death it has created so many
deceptions around itself, but the one it clings to the most is its greatest and oldest deceiver...religion.
Accounts of 'near death experience' (NDE) impute a connection to another self-deception...the 'afterlife'. The first and foremost aspect to
consider regarding NDE is that there isn't the slightest shred of scientific evidence to support that it occurs. All that exists is ancedotal
evidence. NDE is nothing more than a report, a report that rests on the pile of the 'hearsay' tray.
I'm sure that one or two of you may want others to believe in your belief of life after death, and will even recount a tale or two of having
experienced your consciousness separate from your body, or even actually having experienced an NDE yourself. Well, I'm sorry, I don't believe you.
You are either deluding yourself, or just being brazenly untrue.
The 'light' of the NDE is a reaction in cells as they begin to undergo their death process. Full body death of the animal (including human) does not
occur instantaneously nor globally (i.e., whole bodily). Dying a natural death of old age comes modularly. Different parts of the body shutdown at
different stages. If one suffers a heart attack or a cardiac arrest (and no, they are not the same), it leads to the shutting down of both the lungs
and the brain, taking seconds for the former and minutes for the latter.
When a brain cell begins to undergo the death process it sends out a signal to let the body know it is dying and needs to be disposed of. When the
whole brain dies, all of the cells send out the signal in one global 'light shout'. Fading consciousness is briefly re-enlivened, which leads to the
lucid state experienced in NDE, using content from memory.
The physical body is the only power source available for consciousness, and once the body's power source shuts down and irrevocably shuts off...the
organism dies. The state to which you return at death is the same state you held before you were born, and that is the oblivion of non-existence.
You never did pre-exist your current and only life. You don't have memories wiped before birth, because you never existed ever before this life you
are living, and when this life is over, you will never exist again.
Stop deluding yourselves.
