Evidence Of Afterlife-Death Experiences Demonstrates You Will Live After Your Body Dies

Evidence you will live after your body dies

Today medical science is able to evidence of afterlife whose bodies show little or no brain function. when they come back from the brink of death, many share remarkable accounts of feelings of calm. Moreover peace, moving upwards through a tunnel. Therefore meeting deceased loved ones, encountering. However a being of light, experiencing a life review, feeling unconditionally loved, being given a choice to stay or return. Feeling a return to the body, often very reluctantly. They have a near-death experience (NDE).

Evidence of afterlife During the NDE, the body and brain have lost mental and physical vitality—they are dying. Although during the NDE the brain is not capable of experiencing higher functions that neuroscience associates with awareness. Such as sensory experiences, judgment, and memory, experiencers report that their senses are more acute than normal. However with vivid visual experiences and feelings of physical comfort and lightness and no pain, even when the body is in trauma. 

Rather than feeling the fear and dread one would expect during life-ending traumatic experiences. people feel profound peace. They are on the bluff at the end of this life. Evidence of afterlife enthralled by the vista before them of indescribable beauty, peacefulness, and unconditional love.

Experiencers Have More Acute Senses When They Should Be Failing

Dr. Jeffrey Long, founder of the Near-Death Research Foundation, explains that trauma to the dying brain and body. However it  should cause a brain to lose capabilities, resulting in confusion and cessation of awareness and memory. But that is not what happens.

The brain is not an organ that generates consciousness, but rather an instrument evolved to transmit and limit the processes of consciousness and of conscious attention so as to restrict them to those aspects of the material environment which at any moment are crucial for the terrestrial success of the individual.[11]

Dr. Peter Fenwick, a neuropsychiatrist and one of the leading authorities in Britain on NDEs. It explains that the condition of the brain during NDEs should result in confusion and paranoia. But it doesn’t.

Paradox cerebral localization studies have indicated that complex subjective experiences are mediated through the activation of a number of different cortical areas. Rather than any single area of the brain. A globally disordered brain would not be expected to support lucid thought processes or the ability to “see,“ “hear,“ and remember details of the experience. Any acute alteration in cerebral physiology leads to confusion and impaired higher cerebral function….
Cerebral damage, particularly hippocampal damage, is common after cardiac arrest. Thus only confusional and paranoid thinking as is found in intensive care patients should occur.
The paradox is that experiences reported by cardiac arrest patients are not confusional. On the contrary, they indicate heightened awareness, attention. Moreover and memory at a time when consciousness and memory formation are not expected to be functioning.[ii]

During the NDE, no sensory experiences and no memory production would be possible. If the mind were located in the brain. During these times, people whose brain activity is being monitored are showing absolutely no life in the brain. Dr. Fenwick describes the state of the brain during an NDE:

The brain isn’t functioning. It’s not there. It’s destroyed. It’s abnormal. But, yet, it can produce these very clear experiences…. An unconscious state is when the brain ceases to function. For example, if you faint, you fall to the floor, you don’t know what’s happening and the brain isn’t working. The memory systems are particularly sensitive to unconsciousness. So, you won’t remember anything. But yet, after one of these experiences [an NDE],.You come out with clear, lucid memories…. This is a real puzzle for science. I have not yet seen any good scientific explanation which can explain that fact.[iii]

Researchers from the Copenhagen University Hospital found in their study of 289 NDEers. That 65 percent reported having exceptional speed of thought, 63 percent reported having exceptionally vivid. senses, and 53 percent felt separated from or out of their bodies.[iv] As the body no longer impedes consciousness, all the faculties associated with the mind outside of the brain vitalize.
Another study, published in the journal Resuscitation, concluded that people with no brain function. who describe an NDE in fact have lucid thought processes, reasoning, and memory during the period. when their brains are not functioning. In the study performed by Dr. Sam Parnia and a colleague from Southampton General Hospital in England. The researchers interviewed 63 heart attack patients who had been evaluated to be clinically dead. However they were subsequently resuscitated. To ensure that their recollections were fresh, the people were interviewed within a week of the experience. They described details and events in which they were thinking, reasoning, and consciously moving around during the period. When they were unconscious, their bodies were motionless, and doctors working on them had determined their brains were not functioning.[v]

When the brain is deprived of oxygen people become totally confused. Thrash around and usually have no memories at all, Parnia said. “Here you have a severe insult to the brain but perfect memory.” Skeptics have also suggested that patients’ memories occurred in the moments they were leaving or returning to consciousness. But Parnia said when a brain is traumatized by a seizure or car wreck a patient. Generally does not remember moments just before or after losing consciousness. Rather, there is usually a memory lapse of hours or days. ”Talk to them. They’ll tell you something like: ‘I just remember seeing the car and the next thing I knew I was in the hospital,

”’ He said.“ With cardiac arrest, the insult to the brain is so severe it stops the brain completely. Therefore, I would expect profound memory loss before and after the incident,” he added. Since the initial experiment, Parnia and his colleagues have found more than 3,500 people with lucid memories.
Further that apparently occurred at times they were thought to be clinically dead. Many of the patients, he said, were reluctant to share their experiences fearing they would be thought crazy.[vi]

A famous NDE demonstrating that people are having sensory experiences. when the body’s senses are blocked or not functioning was reported in Light and Death. A book by cardiologist Dr. Michael Sabom.[vii] To remove a large, deadly aneurysm from beneath her brain. Doctors put Pam Reynolds into a state of hypothermic cardiac arrest. Her body temperature was lowered to 60 degrees, her heartbeat and breathing were stopped. The blood was drained from her head. Her brain waves flattened, showing no brain activity. After her successful operation, she was warmed and her own blood was returned to her body. When she could communicate, she reported a startling NDE.

Reynolds reported floating out of the operating room and traveling down a tunnel to a light. At the end of which her deceased relatives and friends were waiting. Her long-dead grandmother was there. Eventually, her deceased uncle took her back and she reentered her body.

She said that during the experience she saw with vision that was “brighter and more focused and clearer than normal vision.” When she heard her deceased grandmother calling. The sound was clearer than sounds she’d heard with her ears. yet her auditory functions were shut down by the noisy clicks and she was unconscious.

Five eminent cardiac and medical specialists. (Sam Parnia, Pim Van Lommel, Robert Spetzler, Peter Fenwick, and Michael Sabom) all supported the accuracy of Reynolds’s stated experience during her clinical death. “What she saw corresponded to what actually happened.”[ix]

She had seen and heard details while either sensory deprived and unconscious, with her eyes taped shut and hearing. Blocked by loud clicks, or while she was brain dead.

Proof the Afterlife: Experiencers Know about Distant People and Events When Their Bodies and Brains Have No Access

Other evidence that in the NDE a person is moving into another realm is demonstrated. Therefore their knowledge about people and events distant from them. Their minds are freed from the body and use their heightened sense of awareness and perfectly functioning memory to observe. Moreover remember things happening distant from their unconscious bodies.

 Reports demonstrate that their minds are alive and acutely aware when their bodies have shut down.

Pediatrician Melvin Morse resuscitated a young girl named Katie. who had nearly drowned after being underwater for nineteen minutes. As a result of the massive swelling of the brain, fixed and dilated pupils. However breathing only with the assistance of an artificial lung .She had only a 10 percent chance of surviving. 

Against the odds, three days later she recovered fully. In the follow-up exam, Katie described many details of the emergency room. Resuscitation although, during the entire ordeal, she was “profoundly comatose during, with her eyes closed.” More importantly, Katie could recall many details far beyond the hospital. 


In one glimpse inside her own home, she described her mother preparing roast chicken and rice for dinner. Where her father was sitting, what he was doing, and the specific toys her brother and sister were playing with. When Morse checked the details, the family confirmed that these events had occurred just days before.[x]

A young child’s account is especially evidential of the separateness of mind and body .Because a naïve child reports what happens matter-of-factly. 

A five-year-old boy named Rick suffered from meningitis and fell into a coma. He was rushed to the hospital in an ambulance. Because of his near-death condition, Rick was outside of the body. As his body was taken away, he decided to stay behind. 

He watched family members’ grief-stricken reactions to his emergency. He watched his father weeping as he entered the car to take the family to the hospital. 

Then he rushed to the hospital, arriving ahead of the ambulance. However  he watched hospital personnel move a girl about twelve years old out of the room he was to occupy.

Rick remained comatose for several days. When he was revived, he described all the events of the trauma and his family’s behavior in perfect detail. His family was bewildered by the depth of his knowledge. He had been completely unconscious through it all.[xi]

Dr. Larry Dossey, former chief of staff of Medical City Dallas Hospital, describes this case of a woman blind from birth. Who is able to see clearly during her near-death experience: experience: 

The surgery had gone smoothly until the late stages of the operation. Then something happened. As her physician was closing the incision, Sarah’s heart stopped beating….

[When she awoke, Sarah had] a clear, detailed memory of the frantic conversation of the surgeons and nurses during her cardiac arrest.
The [operating room] layout; the scribbles on the surgery schedule board in the hall outside. The color of the sheets covering the operating table.The hairstyle of the head scrub nurse.

The names of the surgeons in the doctors’ lounge down the corridor. Who were waiting for her case to be concluded. Even the trivial fact that her anesthesiologist that day was wearing unmatched socks.

All this she knew even though. She had been fully anesthetized and unconscious during the surgery and the cardiac arrest. But what made Sarah’s vision even more momentous was the fact. That, since birth, she had been blind.[xii]

Sarah’s mind was able to see when her body. She couldn’t because she was unconscious and had been blind since birth.

People who have experienced an NDE describe having more acute senses at the time of the event. When the brain is failing, the result should be confusion and paranoia. It isn’t. The person’s senses and mental faculties are keen and accurate. People in NDEs have knowledge about distant people and events they could not have if their minds were confined to their unconscious bodies. 

These characteristics of NDEs are proof our minds live on after our bodies cease to function.
