What is an NDE?
A near-death experience (NDE) is commonly a profound, life modifying, intensely psychological experience that generally happens throughout a scientific crisis and has widespread features and aftereffects. It is not a dream, hallucination, or mental ailment (Greyson, 1983). There are no predictive variables to recognize who will have an NDE. They come about to persons of all ages, religions, socio-economic teams, cultures, educational backgrounds, and perception methods. They come about less than a range of conditions these as accidents, near-drownings, ailments, battle, surgical strategies, and childbirth. Subsequent an NDE, experiencers (NDErs) normally screen some frequent aftereffects. Research has established a established of widespread NDE qualities and lengthy-expression aftereffects. Theories employed to describe near-death experiences in purely bodily terms have been confirmed insufficient by NDE researchers and many others.

  1. "Time" is still experienced when we are "on the other side". We stop experiencing something like "The forward arrow of time" in theoretical physics type of experience; but even in physics, if I've understood it right, "time" is always tied to some value of energy.

    The way you experience energy (the relation between energies can be more or less interactive) "on the other side" kind of disintegrates the order that creates "the forward arrow of time" type of experience or intuition. The outcome is like time can seem to not exist (maybe it does but only in the tiniest ways) or time can exist where I'm looking to my left, but not here where I am or time exists around one aspect of my being at an intensity of "5" and at an intensity of "0.3" somewhere else in my being… with endless variations

    It's like if we called ice humidity and said there is no humidity in the jungle or the desert or the bubble bath…

  2. The more NDEs I hear the more convinced I become that they are actually just hallucinations. The last one I heard her great great great grandmother appeared and spent a year in NDE time telling her about what life was like in the 19th century. That sounds a lot like the random stuff you would get on a drug trip.

    However, I am not disputing that some people have veridical OBE experiences connected with it. I guess my current theory is that there are indeed psi abilities unleashed during the OBE but the rest is brain hallucinations.

  3. At 8:55 Dr Greyson refers to so called Peak in Darien experiences which I find extremely interesting. He then refers to an article he published which had some 20-30 or so cases of this type. Does anyone have a complete reference to that article? Dr. Greyson if you are reading this, thank you SO much for all your work, I hope you could give me the reference. Kindest regards /Johnny
