Results of the World’s Largest Medical Study of the Human Mind and Consciousness at the Time of Death published

Via alphagalileo.org: ‘The results of a four-year international study of 2060 cardiac arrest cases across 15 hospitals published and available now on ScienceDirect. The study concludes:

· The themes relating to the experience of death appear far broader than what has been understood so far, or what has been described as so called near-death experiences.· In some cases of cardiac arrest, memories of visual awareness compatible with so called out-of-body experiences may correspond with actual events.

· A higher proportion of people may have vivid death experiences, but do not recall them due to the effects of brain injury or sedative drugs on memory circuits.

· Widely used yet scientifically imprecise terms such as near-death and out-of-body experiences may not be sufficient to describe the actual experience of death. Future studies should focus on cardiac arrest, which is biologically synonymous with death, rather than ill-defined medical states sometimes referred to as ‘near-death’.

· The recalled experience surrounding death merits a genuine investigation without prejudice.’
