Just a little addition to the "life after death study" that wasn't mentioned in
One of the tricks the researchers did was to identify which beds on certain
wards had the highest 'cardiac arrest/resuscitation' occurances. Most nurses
can identify these beds - they are the `high observation` beds, usually nearest
the nurses station etc where the most ill patients are positioned.
Above these beds, hanging a few inches from the ceiling and well above
head-height are discretely positioned tiles with something (no one else knows
exactly what). The plan is that when the semi-dead patient flys around the
room, they will see whatever it is and if succesfully rescusitated, will reveal
what it was.
As yet, i have not heard any positive result from this part of the study.
Personally, i have no doubt as to the experiences people report after successful
rescusitation. Having been involved in a great many resuscitations myself
(approx 100), i have come accross only two first hand reports where people
suggested a "NDE" - both reports were astonishing.
Not really much use to a scientific discussion, but i had a spare five mins,
