Pretty cool article…

2 years, 3 months ago

I’ve been reading HE for a while now, and I really like it.. but I haven’t joined till now.. but I really wanted to share this article.. I found it really interesting and hopefully some others will too! I’m in the medical field, so it’s pretty cool for me whenever I see a connection of sorts between all the science and spirituality.. anyways, here’s a link..

@ragingsunrise, Very interesting article. I dunno how I feel about near death experiences but I remember reading an article on Cracked about how whenever someone has a NDE they lose seven pounds while being “dead”. Some people attribute this to “souls” having a physical weight

There are other articles like this on neardeath.com, but this one is particularly awesome. Thanks!

So when we all die, who wants to like, meet up and chill?

Amazing article! I loved reading it!… What this doctor saw in his “journey” reminds me a bit of what @thomaschong saw when he took the 50 drops of acid…

Mr. Chong, I would love to hear your opinion about this article. I also remember your belief that we all experience a “trip” like this after we die, due to the amount of DMT released, but this doctor’s brain was shut down and he experienced something transcendental. What are your thoughts?

this article is pretty good too:

I was actually so interested in the subject of NDEs that I bought and read “Life After Life” by Raymond Moody. I would definitely suggest it to anyone who is really interested in the subject. I think I bought it on abebooks for less that $5. There is SO much information in it and a lot of different accounts of NDEs that are STRIKINGLY similar.

@fpalazuelos1, Drugs are a powerful force, but, with the thousands of gods and hundreds of thousands of religions we’ve had over the years, I find it hard to believe that there is a god, and that we know who he is and what he wants. I believe that the highest power in my life is me, I have the power over death and the power of life, I am a god, on a scale localized to me. But there is no afterlife other than the chemicals our brain gives us in order to ease us through the process of dieing. The belief in a god makes absolutely no sense to me whatsoever. I have died, a couple times actually. I puked and choked on it and was either dead or close to it. But I was aware of the chemicals that our body gave us, I was aware of what was happening, I didn’t see myself from an outside perspective, I saw myself from an interior one. And no matter how many years I live, I will never be able to transfer that experience into words.
