According to a new study published in the journal Resuscitation, there is life after death, actually. As the scientists point out, after the physical death our soul continues and goes back to the universe.
The University of Southampton in the United Kingdom conducted the largest medical study into near-death and out-of body experiences, where it was concluded that once the brain shuts down completely there is still some awareness.
The study lasted for four years, and during this period, researchers studied more than 2000 patients. All of them suffered from cardiac arrests. The study included patients from 15 different hospitals in Australia, the United States and the United Kingdom.
While they were considered clinically dead, almost 40 percent of the patients who survived resuscitation described some sort of body awareness. This awareness included sensations of peacefulness or of time changing (either slowing down or speeding up time). 39 percent of the 140 survivors out of just over 2000 patients studied felt this awareness.
Some of them described seeing a bright light, a golden flash or sunlight, feelings of fear, drowning or being dragged through deep water.
When 57-year-old man from Southampton who was pronounced dead for three minutes came back to life, he stated that he was able watch his resuscitation from the corner of the room.
What’s even more shocking is that he was able to recount the actions of the nursing staff and the sound of the machines used in his resuscitation process.
As Dr. Jerry Nolan, the editor-in-chief of the journal Resuscitation stated, Dr. Parnia and his team made an incredible discovery that will open new doors for other studies.
