Humans have been around for some thousands of years, and as an advanced species, we have figured out most of the things we’ve always wanted to, especially today. But there’s one thing that’s lingered for all eternity – until now!
The most sought after answer that people have searched for since the beginning of time is what happens when we all die. Where do you we, and who put us here? Well, life after death has been a mystery until now! A recent study discovered that life after death is confirmed.
This large scale study consisted of more than 2,000 people. Before this groundbreaking study, scientists have always assumed brain activity is completely shut down thirty seconds after the heart stops pumping blood through it. Researchers believed that awareness stopped with it, but the shocking findings of this british study has shown that people experience an out of body experience after being pronounced dead before being brought back to life.
The study was conducted by the University of Southampton. It was published in the journal, “Resuscitation’. The researchers gave insight into how people experience awareness up to three minutes after you die. Lead researcher, Dr. Sam Parnia states, “Contrary to perception, death is not a specific moment but a potentially reversible process that occurs after any severe illness or accident causing the lungs, brain, and heart to cease functioning.”
Sam parnia interviewed 2,060 patients from Austria, the United States, and united Kingdom who had suffered cardiac arrest before. Approximately 40% of the patients said awareness continued after being pronounced dead!
One participant was a 57 year old man and he was astonishingly able to describe his after death experience in extremely specific detail. It’s actually rather eerie. Dr. Sam Parnia says, “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.”
