- Researchers revealed that there is life after death
- A team from the University of Southampton in the United Kingdom confirmed their findings
- It is so far the largest medical study about near-death and out-of-body experiences
Is there really life after death? According to a recent study, yes.
In the article Empirical Evidence: Researchers Finally Confirm There Is Life After Death, written by Amando Flavio of Anonymous, it was disclosed that researchers at the University of Southampton in the United Kingdom have confirmed that there is life after death — after conducting the “largest ever” medical study about near-death and out-of-body experiences.
A human being is pronounced clinically dead if the heart stops beating and the brain shuts down; a condition which is also called cardiac arrest. The study, however, revealed that some awareness may continue even after the brain has shut down completely.
The researchers spent four years examining over 2,0o0 people who suffered cardiac arrests at 15 hospitals in the United Kingdom, United States and Austria.
It was found that nearly 40 percent of people who survived their resuscitation, described some kind of awareness during the time when they were clinically dead. At least 39 percent of which said they had experienced some kind of awareness while being resuscitated.
The study also revealed that one in five said they had felt an unusual sense of peacefulness, while nearly one third said time slowed down or speeded up. There are also those who recalled seeing a bright light, a golden flash or the sun shining. Others recounted feelings of fear, drowning or being dragged through deep water. In addition, 13 percent said they had felt separated from their bodies.
Many of them, however, could not recall specific details.
Leaving his body
Meanwhile, it was disclosed that a 57-year-old man from Southampton, who was pronounced dead for three minutes, said he left his body entirely, watching his resuscitation from the corner of the room.
“We know the brain can’t function when the heart has stopped beating. But in this case, conscious awareness appears to have continued for up to three minutes into the period when the heart wasn’t beating, even though the brain typically shuts down within 20-30 seconds after the heart has stopped. The man described everything that had happened in the room, but importantly, he heard two bleeps from a machine that makes a noise at three minute intervals. So we could time how long the experience lasted. He seemed very credible and everything that he said had happened to him had actually happened,” said Dr Sam Parnia; lead researcher of the study.
