Intresting read

I feel though that they have been too many simular stories of seeing the light tunnel to dis-prove it completly

My aunty has had her own expereince when she was clinical dead, luckly she survived.

we all have dreams..victims of ndes always remark and how real the experience seemed
unlike a dream..some people say they felt more aware during a nde than in waking life
Many sceptics believe in materialism as if it were a religion and they often refuse to consider evidence that contradicts their beliefs

I know what you mean Ian,

I can remember a dream where I was woken up by a room mate I sat up in bed and yelled at her but was still asleepish I think I was telling her off because she left the door opened and the two babies I was looking after in the dream had escaped, she told me to lie down I did. I woke up the next day and thought I dremt it all untill I was reminded of it.


my aunty descripes her expeience differently and at the time she was as i say clinical dead

how do they explain how awareness,a sense of being out of the body
in the absence of no measured brain activity,clinical death,still continues?
it is not all black and white,far from it.

I had a friend that "died" on an operating table and she told me she went through a brilliant light to this place that was beautiful. She was made to go back and she told me she didn't want to she was so happy where she was. Thankfully she did come back and was very ill for a long time but never forgot what happened. It just seems to me it is to much of a coincidence for people to have the same experiences.

Well I did read the article, I don't know that I want to invest £16.99p in buying his book..

However,the case quoted, is that of a Gillian Mackenzie who haemhoraged during child birth.. So would have suffered Hypovolaemic shock as women in these circumstances 30 yrs or so ago. They bled out fast, due to the lack of rapid effective drug therapy ie Syntometrine. Also the management of the exact causes of the bleed has a bearing.
The most probable cause of the bleed being either, 'placenta praevia' or 'placental abruptia' or an arterial bleed from a 'ruptured uterus'.
In circumstances such as these, it is possible to lose 50% of the circulating blood volume. Trust me I am a midwife....So she would be unconcious and unaware.

What ever this article says, in this case, the lady relates of being aware of who did what, even following her husband as they resussed the baby, as is the normal practice.. If she was unconcious, this could not have been known. Unless she physically followed her hubby.... so she said she had an OBE as her way of explanation.

This is just one case...

I can tell you of others that when I have personally been present and for example had the patient relate to us Doctors and nurses, a day after the event. Exactly what they had seen and heard, during a period when they were actually in full cardiac arrest and clinically dead, pulseless...
They described who said what, my querying a drug dose with a doc and exacty who was present.

Our unit has cards placed on top of the cupboards in A/E in all the resus rooms, in Intensive Care Unit and Coronary Care units and in Midwifery theatre. These cards have a variety of symbols black on white card for each area. ie square, triangle, circle, diamond etc.
They are taped onto the cupboard top, facing the ceiling and are not visible by anyone standing or working on floor level... Yet patients who have had NDE's in these areas have been asked if they noticed anything and have related which symbol they saw.

So Balders, explain that one please......

But that is not what The Great Spirit told me... He said No one owns the land, that the land belongs to him. We are just keepers of the land, for our children and for their childrens childen.

Are you actually quoting something here, or is this your considered opinion?
