The most current scientific study has suggested that dying rats encounter an strange surge of intense neural motion during their final moments of existence. This enlarged brain operation may be consistent with (and thusly describe) Human accounts of close to or after death experiences, as reported by some people around the world.
About a 5th of all folks who have survived a cardiac arrest have reported having an ‘After Death Experience’ or ADE. This is sort of an alarming statistic, principally as ADE tends to contain a profound effect within the life of the survivor. Having an ADE is seen by many as unquestionable substantiation of an spirit world or even a continuation of the individual’s soul after death.
Likewise, a ‘Near Death Experience’ (or NDE) is believed being comparable to an ADE, but clearly occurs whilst the patient continues to be technically alive. Many individuals who experience NDE’s report a floating sensation or ‘From Body Experience’ (OBE), also as encounters with angels, deceased family members and loved ones. Both NDE and ADE survivors regularly explain traversing an extended tunnel in direction of an intense light.
Discussions of life after death seems in early scriptures, archaeological sites and many subsequent works of philosophy and possess fascinated (and frightened) Human beings, regardless of creed, ethnic group or culture, since time immemorial.
After recuperating from surgery in 1979, Jazmyne Cidavia-DeRepentigny of Hull, Georgia, USA, reported a typical NDE story which was finally published in the book ‘Beyond The Light’ by P.M.H Atwater in 1994. Like many, Jazmyne recounts details of her surgery that might be very hard to obtain were she lying.
Jazmyne states that “I was perched over my body. I could see and listen to all that was being said and done. I left the area for a short while and then returned to where my corpse lay. I knew why I died. It is because I couldn’t breathe. There was a tube along my throat and the medical staff did not have an oxygen mask on my nose. I had also been provided too much sedative”.
She went on to illustrate her attempts to remove the tube from her throat in a rather upsetting account.
Prior to that aforementioned study, it was accepted undeniable fact that neural activity ceases once the heart stops. This has now been demonstrated as being untrue, at the least as far as rats are concerned. It is also the strongest premise to this point concerning the reasons of ADEs, OBEs and NDEs.
One of the scientists responsible for these results, Dr. George Mashour of the University of Ann Arbour, Michigan, USA said that the team was “astonished with the high degrees of activity” in the rodents. “In reality, at near-death many recognized electric signatures of consciousness exceeded levels found within the waking condition, signifying that the brain is effective at well-organized electric activity during the early phase of clinical death.” He said.
The team’s lead scientist, Dr. Jimo Borjigin added that “This report tells us that drop of oxygen or equally oxygen and glucose during cardiac arrest can stimulate neural activity that is characteristic of conscious processing,”
However, Dr. Martin Coath from the University of Plymouth, UK was a little critical of the team’s findings.
Dr. Coath said, because the rats were anaesthetized, the findings better demonstrated the unconscious brain’s response to a dangerous deficit of blood flow and oxygen. He also said that the study hadn’t essentially showed that any ‘sharp cognizant processing’ had actually taken place, suggesting the wording of that conclusion was “a bit of a stretch”. He commented that, while the results were “genuinely interesting” they were as well “hardly amazing”.
The results of this report will no doubt be of great notice to numerous in the scientific kinship, also as religious groups, those fascinated in the mystic and people who have experienced an ADE or NDE.
