But one fact remains. Survivors report what they see and hear around their physical bodies once they’ve “died.” For example, if the NDE took place in a hospital, they report hearing medical directives from their doctors, witnessing resuscitative attempts and seeing distraught relatives from a place above their bodies; and when they relay this information to others once they’ve “come back,” are told it happened during the death period.
So how does medical science explain this phenomenon? It doesn’t seem to fit the dream state explanation. It’s been reported by people from all over the world, from all age groups, socio-economic backgrounds and religious factions. It is truly a universal experience.
Is it a person’s soul that has separated from his body to witness his own death before ascending to the great beyond? Theories from scientists over the last century indicate that the soul weighs 21 grams and that it is measurable, but there are no recent studies to expand on these theories.
Survivors have reported newly uncovered psychic abilities after their NDEs. Others communicate with dead relatives and convey family secrets that no one knew about to their families when they “return.” Still others report an overwhelming peace and reversal of bad habits or attitudes they had before the NDE.
It’s possible that man was never meant to know all the mysteries of the universe, and this is certainly the biggest one of all. Still, it begs a look, whether you believe in it or not. Science can’t prove everything.
