Scientific studies reveal life after death is real.
The largest study ever of its kind was conducted into life after death and all signs point to it being real.
Whether you believe in a religious ‘afterlife’ or something more abstract, most people would tend to agree that it is hard to imagine that the soul and energy that are present in all of us simply disappear upon death of the physical body.
Over 2,000 cases were examined and the overwhelming majority of results confirmed that some kind of consciousness was still present after life signs in the body had faded.
Results collected from the University of Southampton were published in the journal ‘Resurrection’.
Dr. Sam Parnia, lead researcher said:
“Contrary to perception, death is not a specific moment but a potentially reversible process that occurs after any severe illness or accident causes the heart, lungs and brain cease functioning” “If attempts are made to reverse this process it is referred to as ‘cardiac arrest’: however if these attempts do not succeed it is called ‘death’.
The researchers said with this study they wanted to change the public’s perception of what are described as near-death experiences (NDE) and out-of-body experiences (OBE).
Around 40% of all patients who experienced cardiac arrest said they had some form of consciousness afterwards.
“This suggests more people may have mental activity initially but then lose their memories after recovery, either due to the effects of brain injury or sedative drugs on memory recall”
The results show that the human brain is actively different to the body, and it is merely the death of the body which shuts down the ability to connect with your inner mind.
The study is important because it highlights the difference between what people perceive to be ‘hallucinations’ due to the complications of the physical act of dying and real after-life experiences.
