What would you do if you are still “ALIVE” after Death ? How would you feel? Would you haunt people? Death is the most scariest, depressing phase of life. Scientist believe there is something after death. In a study of more than 2,000 people, British boffins reveals and state that thinking process still continues even when the heart stops beating and the person is declared dead.
The medical study of “out-of-body” experiences has found that still there is some kind of awareness present, after the brain has totally shut down. It is believed that a human brain stops functioning, 30 seconds after the heart stops with awareness.
A study from the University of Southampton however shows that the dead still perform some kind of awareness in their body for up to three minutes after they were declared dead.
Out of 2060 patients from US, UK and Australia, 40% of people has experienced some kind of awareness after being pronounced dead in a cardiac arrest.
Out of those only 2% of people has experienced the awareness of leaving one’s body and could hear what’s going on around them after death. They could experience the awareness of “outer-body-experience”.
One of the significant finding was a 57 year old man was declared death and he told his outer body experience. He told the whole story what had happened in the room after he was pronounced dead. He came into life after few minutes.
Lead researcher Dr Sam Parnia said: “Contrary to perception, death is not a specific moment but a potentially reversible process that occurs after any severe illness or accident causes the heart, lungs and brain to cease functioning”.
“If attempts are made to reverse this process, it is referred to as ‘cardiac arrest’; however, if these attempts do not succeed it is called ‘death’”.
Dr Parnia continued: “This suggests more people may have mental activity initially but then lose their memories after recovery, either due to the effects of brain injury or sedative drugs on memory recall.”
Dr Parnia continued: “This is significant, since it has often been assumed that experiences in relation to death are likely hallucinations or illusions occurring either before the heart stops or after the heart has been successfully restarted, but not an experience corresponding with ‘real’ events when the heart isn’t beating”.
“In this case, consciousness and awareness appeared to occur during a three-minute period when there was no heartbeat”.
“This is paradoxical, since the brain typically ceases functioning within 20-30 seconds of the heart stopping and doesn’t resume again until the heart has been restarted”.
“Furthermore, the detailed recollections of visual awareness in this case were consistent with verified events.”
