Bright light, a sense of calm and tranquility, watching his body from the side - often these phrases are present in the stories of people, whose share fell to survive the terminal state.
Researchers divided into two camps: one side with storytellers, while agreeing that such a phenomenon is and they are poorly studied science, others explain what he saw hallucinations.
Terminal condition - a condition in whichthe human body is on the verge between life and biological death. It lasts from a few seconds to several minutes, although longer and known time instances. In the world literature describes many examples when returning to life after clinical death people told about the extraordinary adventure - flying into infinity in the original bright light, meeting with the long-dead loved ones, and his voice, which does not come from a specific point, and from all sides.
Many saw their earthly shell side,resuscitation carried out by medical staff and more. Sometimes "voskresnuvshie" could repeat exactly all the actions and words of the doctors in those moments when they were seemingly unconscious. Many believe these stories confirms that the threshold of biological existence is a different life energy.
Often, people who survived clinical death, manifest paranormal abilities. They claim that they can hear the voices of the dead, seeing ghosts, the future, ie, to communicate with the spirit world.
Scientific opinion on the problem of near-death experiences
Researchers are trying to understand what is onactually see the people at the moment of clinical death. First of all, it should be noted that clinical death is officially considered a reversible step, not something out of the ordinary. At these moments, there is a lack of breathing, cardiac arrest, lack of response to stimuli pupils. Cases of recovery of all vital functions after a short-term death in the world are not uncommon, but only a small percentage of patients claims that they saw something "on the side".
An important role here are a few factors: acidosis and brain tissue hypoxia, religious beliefs, self-persuasion. In the first two cases, a person at the moment of clinical death there is a powerful release of endorphins, which the body plays the role of opioids. Under certain conditions, an increase in its concentration in the neurons of the brain: it eliminates the pain, it allows to stay in the euphoria and gives a feeling of happiness. Hence, the "resting state" of "appeasement", "loving" and "flight". Hypoxia of the brain, in turn, creates the sound effects in the auditory receptors, amplifying at the moment of clinical death.
Auditory hallucinations play the most important role inthe construction of the whole picture. In fact, people do not see and can not see, but in his auditory receptors, the conditions for the emergence of sound effects that the brain can interpret in its sole discretion. Those. "Visual experience" is not even a hallucination and imagination fevered imagination in response to auditory hallucinations. Some have compared the near-death experience of the so-called lucid dreaming states occurring in REM sleep. Here, there are almost the same phenomenon as in the moment of clinical death.
Policing these people is not a liepossible. What happened to them on the biological and chemical level, of course, it is true, their hallucinations are undeniable, but whether or not to take this experience as evidence of life beyond the body?
On the other hand, experienced hallucinations afterman is sure of the existence of life after death, his religious beliefs in this regard unwavering. Having gone through a terminal condition, he unknowingly convinces himself that he had seen "with their own eyes" the afterlife. Then his brain completes fragmented puzzle in the whole picture is largely due to the media and the stories of "eyewitnesses" to pseudo-scientific literature. In this case, the word has survived clinical death copy another story heard before.
