The plural of anecdote is not data.

Are any of these so-called NDE's reported by fighter pilots training in centrifuges? When the blood runs out of your brain, it seems the last place it leaves is the back near the stem, where vision happens. As they are whirled around and around and experience g-related loss of consciousness, many report feelings of well-being, calm, loving lights, tunnels and even seeing loved ones.


>delurking<

there's a nice bit of logic to the NDE story ... i told someone once that i'd had an NDE and it was Nothing like the 'stories' (no damn Light (no Damn cradle)) ..they (not Art, btw) said, "then you didn't REALLY have an NDE." if you 'die' but have the wrong experiences, you didn't really 'die' / if you don't 'die' but do have the same experience .. i don't know what they say.

seems OBVIOUS that if people have similar experiences, the best guess would be physiology ..with a bit of culture maybe

[ i've also done past-life regression therapy, and studied palmistry, astrology & Tarot -- no woo-woo BS .. all that's bunk. but sometimes useful metaphors
a similar sort of logic in the past-life stuff : i said to the hypnotist, "we're just stimulating something in the brain to produce something like a dream ..eg, i've always been fascinated by Japan, so i -imagine- a past life in Japan." "NO. in a past life, you were Japanese, therefore you're interested in Japan" interesting stuff, but Bunk]


=b
....... Tarot ,IMO, most interesting
