Near Death Experiences : Is there a Logical Explanation?

Written by C. Bailey-Lloyd/LadyCamelot

Inrepparttar August edition of Reader's Digest, I stumbled upon a compelling article, "After Life," by Anita Bartholomew. The article takes an intricate look intorepparttar 143372 controversial world of "after life" or "near death experiences." I found myself being hurled intorepparttar 143373 riveting article like a child in a candy store. In Ms. Bartholomew's revealing summary, van Lommel (a British researcher) made an interesting statement, "You can comparerepparttar 143374 brain to a TV set. The TV program is not in your TV set." Thus, where liesrepparttar 143375 consciousness?

Modern scientists cannot explain NDEs, or in my opinion-- do not want to accept it. What is a Near Death Experience? An NDE is an experience which may include feeling of being outside of one's physical body. The person may move through a form of darkness or tunnel. He or she may meet deceased loved ones and even other entities. However, most recall an indescribalbe light that seemingly beckons them. Some NDEs are beautiful and peaceful, while others can be terrifying or unpleasant. In any event, most cases of NDEs result in a life-altering transformation.

While some believe that NDEs dramatically prove life after death, others seem to think a near death experience is a hallucination whichrepparttar 143376 brain manifests in itself when pushed to extreme limits. What has been discovered is that different cultures, do in fact, experience similar episodes of NDEs. The only differential in other regions ofrepparttar 143377 globe is that where one may see light here, others may see tall buildings or even stars. This, of course, transcends multi-diverse belief systems and how things or events are viewed in relation to NDEs.

Ultimately, what one person sees, hears or experiences during an NDE is entirely uprepparttar 143378 individual's own belief system. Many persons may never have a near death experience because their own belief systems do not allow these thought patterns to channel their own mind; therefore, what you or I value or have learned to be recognitive of does not always apply in NDEs.

Do NDEs prove that life after death does in fact -- exist? Again, we encounterrepparttar 143379 problematic belief system. Religious groups remain divided as some believe NDEs support life after death. Other religious groups rejectrepparttar 143380 notion of an NDE because it falls in line with "the devil's work." Scientists, of course arerepparttar 143381 universal skeptics. While most do not accept near death experience, some actually do. But how they perceive NDE may be quite different than what one would expect. Some scientists agree that an NDE may be an "outer body experience," but only caused by natural chemicals produced byrepparttar 143382 brain that merely concoct hallucinogenic properties.
