[url=http://derrenbrown.co.uk/blog/2009/10/7175/]Source[/url] [quote]A study of seven terminally ill patients found identical surges in brain activity moments before death, providing what may be physiological evidence of “out of body” experiences reported by people who survive near-death ordeals. Doctors at George Washington University Medical Faculty Associates recorded brain activity of people dying from critical illnesses, such as cancer or heart attacks. Moments before death, the patients experienced a burst in brain wave activity, with the spikes occurring at the same time before death and at comparable intensity and duration.[/quote] [img]http://dsc.discovery.com/news/2009/10/06/gallery/brain-324x205.jpg[/img]
So you have a seizure before you die?
This is old news, we've known this for at least 10 years.
:holy:It's the soul being sent to god:holy:
[QUOTE=Madman_Andre;17722705]So you have a seizure before you die?[/QUOTE] Nope the brain surges out DMT aswell, giving you the impression of an afterlife, the brain wave activity is just that, and i'm pretty sure its supposed to alter your perception of time aswell making it seems like its a full afterlife. Ladies and gentlemen, we have just proved that heaven and hell exist in our heads alone.

I guess you really do see your life before your eyes at death then. Can't wait to see what I ate for breakfast this morning! [img]http://sa.tweek.us/emots/images/smile.gif[/img]

There's just speculation and probability like there's always been, but no actual firsthand experience.
This has been known forever. I saw a documentary on the near death experiences like 3 years ago.
Stop copy/pasting Derren Brown blogs! They aren't news sources!
[QUOTE=whazat!!!;17722763]What the hell are you talking about? There isn't any proof. There's just speculation and probability like there's always been, but no actual firsthand experience.[/QUOTE] [quote=wiki]In the 1990s, Dr. Rick Strassman conducted research on the psychedelic drug Dimethyltryptamine (DMT) at the University of New Mexico. Strassman advanced the theory that a massive release of DMT from the pineal gland prior to death or near-death was the cause of the near-death experience phenomenon. Only two of his test subjects reported NDE-like aural or visual hallucinations, although many reported feeling as though they had entered a state similar to the classical NDE. His explanation for this was the possible lack of panic involved in the clinical setting and possible dosage differences between those administered and those encountered in actual NDE cases. All subjects in the study were also very experienced users of DMT and/or other psychedelic/entheogenic agents. Some speculators consider that if subjects without prior knowledge on the effects of DMT had been used during the experiment, it is possible more volunteers would have reported feeling as though they had experienced an NDE.[/quote] [url]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Near_death_experience#Biological_analysis_and_theories[/url] honestly, its pretty much concrete in my eyes that we have a massive dmt trip before death, and thats the where the whole "go into the light" thing and the afterlife came from
I read something once that said they weighed bodies about four ounces lighter immediately following death. Feces and everything included. Here's a theory I whipped up for this; "life" is a form of energy, like electricity or heat. If you could see it, it would be concentrated around planets or other dense areas of life. As you live, you absorb this energy and convert it into brainwaves/electricity by thinking, or mitosis. When you die, it is returned to the earth all at once. Like how your CPU turns electricity into heat as it processes. Yes energy has mass, and maybe this life energy is relatively massive. Four ounces per human maybe? Would explain telekinesis and the like. Some people might have the ability to manipulate this energy. [I don't believe in that shit though] When the first proteins or whatever on earth started forming, they kind of drew in the life energy from the surrounding space. As the amount of life grew, so did the energy draw. Kind of like how a cloud of [star gas] pulls itself together with gravity to form a star. I think the energy could be randomly distributed throughout space, actively produced by the sun, or left over from the formation of the sun. I highly doubt my own theory though. Edit: Just looked back at this, stoned ramblings at 7 in the morning. :downs:

They're ascending! :buddy:
Do you really shit yourself when you die?
Defense mechanism I'd say, send the consciousness far away the moment you die so you don't feel the body shutting down (which I can only assume is really fucking horrible).

I doubt it though, as pain functions as a method of alerting the body it's receiving damage, so to block that sense would seem counter-productive.
When we die, we cease to exist, we won't be alive to worry about being in heaven or hell.

Probably the brain shitting itself knowing that times up.
