After dying for a few minutes, a man describes ‘flipping through book’ of life.
A man remembers ‘turning through book’ of life after dying for a few minutes.
DURING HIS NEAR-DEATH EXPERIENCE, A MAN WHO DIED FOR MANY MINUTES REMEMBERED “FLIPPING THROUGH A BOOK” TO REFLECT ON HIS LIFE.
After losing too much blood during an operation, he was brought back to life. He went by the name “monitormonkey” on Reddit to depict what life was like after death. “I awoke in what appeared to be space, yet there were no stars or light,” he said.
“I wasn’t floating in the traditional sense; I was simply present.
“I wasn’t hot or cold, hungry or tired; all I felt was peaceful and neutral.
“I was aware that there was light and love in the vicinity, but I didn’t feel obliged to rush there.
“I remember thinking about my life, but not in the manner of a montage.
“It seemed more like I was flipping through a book at random and snippets struck my eye.”
As a result of the encounter, he indicated that his viewpoint on several topics had evolved.
“I’m still frightened of dying, but I’m not worried about what happens after that,” he remarked.
An NDE is more common among those who have had a significant medical trauma, such as a heart attack or suffocation.
Patients who have had a near-death experience have described seeing bright light at the end of a tunnel, floating outside their bodies, and even flying into space.
As a result of NDEs, some people have come to think that there is life after death.
On the other hand, a University of Cork professor suggests a more scientific explanation for the incident.
Emeritus Professor of Biochemistry William Reville wrote in the Irish Times that NDEs are likely to mirror the activity of the dying brain as oxygen levels fall and carbon dioxide levels rise.
