I remember some country song that said "I'm not afraid of dying, it's just the thought of being dead." <grin>

[Think it was "Prop Me Up by the Jukebox When I Die"]

I've read a blue million near death experiences. What they all say afterwards is that they they lose their fear of death, but they don't look forward to the pain that goes along with dying. So, for those who've experienced it, it's exactly the opposite. It's the "getting there", or the pain and suffering that leads up to dying. Dr. Kenneth Ring, a Psychology Professor from the University of Conneticut, has done numerous questionaires of people who've claimed to have had a near death experience. Almost unamiously, they claim that they have lost the fear of death, but that they don't look forward to suffering. - Art

"What happens after death is so unspeakably glorious that our imaginations and our feelings do not suffice to form even an approximate conception of it." - Dr. Carl Jung, after having a NDE due to a heart attack in 1946.
