Can't wait to die now.
"Others recounted feelings of fear or drowning or being dragged through deep water."
Yep, can't wait for a bit of that
"Despite being unconscious and ‘dead’ for three minutes, the 57-year-old social worker from Southampton, recounted the actions of the nursing staff in detail and described the sound of the machines."
Things he couldn't POSSIBLY have known otherwise!
but please... try and remain rational about it.
The afterlife is what I'm all about - I just don't like this out-of-body experience shit, it lacks imagination.
would be nice
unlockable costumes would do
Because it's what you thought prior to hearing about the study and you're too afraid to listen to new evidence that doesn't match your ideas about how the universe works?
Not conclusive evidence perhaps, but at the very least it's very compelling evidence.
and nothing in it indicates anything other than "some people believe they experienced something"
you're having a fucking meltdown over it because you bought into the non story and everyone else is calling it out as the clickbait bullshit it is
that's been picked up by the BBC and all national papers? Stop being so scared. If you have read the article you'll know what people believe they experienced matched what was observed by the scientists. So pretty compelling evidence that consciousness exists outside brain activity.
Something many of us have known for a long time. Nice to see everyone else have to catch up. Or it would be if they weren't all too scared to actually listen.
nobody is this dense
And I suppose the scientists behind the study are 'trolling' too, right? Tell me, do you meet all scientific studies you read about with this kind of defensive scepticism, or just the ones that challenge your perceptions?
I actually think in ten years we'll look back at threads like this one with the same kind of disbelief as we do at the misogyny ones georgiabeth posted. Absolutely terrified of anything that doesn't fit the boundaries they've made.
to say hello to me 10 years in the future!
bd right on bro! :)
some people "said" so.
and i dont know but i would think people coming "back from death" is a different experience to actually being dead
to dispute scientific findings. Most enlightening.
Deleted it, just going to go with:
paradigm is coming crashing down, and you're all shitting it.
maybe our consciousness exists outside of our physiology?
DON'T BE RIDICULOUS
I KNOW HOW EVERYTHING WORKS
PLEASE LEAVE ME ALONE
i'm gonna download the paper at uni tomorrow maybe
this quote on Science-Daily stinks of shit
Thirty-nine per cent of patients who survived cardiac arrest and were able to undergo structured interviews described a perception of awareness, but interestingly did not have any explicit recall of events.
"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," explained Dr Parnia, who was an Honorary Research Fellow at the University of Southampton when he started the AWARE study.
it probably wouldn't be getting so much attention. In conjunction with the other findings, it is pretty fascinating. I can't recall my dreams from last night, but I know I had them.
It's only out for press and proof.
It's also a paper about PTSD caused by resuscitation.
While looking, I also found this interesting paper published in the same journal:
""How deep is your love?" Choosing the most appropriate depth for Paediatric chest compression"
"guys, we're gonna have to take the picture of slimer out"
The most obvious answer is that the brain works just as it does when you are dreaming as it does when leading up to death. You have no idea how long you were out for and could easily confuse those minutes leading up to your heat stopping with the time after your heart stops.
The man who claims to have left his body, unless he was questioned right after it happened and got all the details right is completely unreliable. Who is corroborating his story? How accurate is it? How much was he told after he woke up and formed a false memory round that? Sometimes i have moments during the day where i recall a memory and then cant remember truly if it happened or it was a dream(mundane shit, nothing crazy). I dare say interviewing people about experiences they had years ago as they were dying might be the most unreliable source ever.
Expected better from you tbh.
ROSCOE: Oh I'm a very old man now, so old like those black and white episodes of Dads Army no scratch that like any episode because of how far ahead in the future we are
(a child comes past riding a PURE MATTER BIKE)
ROSCOE: Kids these days
MARLON: I no rite
ROSCOE: Marlon my old friend you're back
MARLON: Yes you may remember I died somehow and for some reason
ROSCOE: How are you alive now
MARLON: Let me explain with some scientific diagrams
ROSCOE: Now I understand thank god for the things that science has made possible
(enter TIM MINCHIN)
TIM MINCHIN: Thank GOd for the things that science 'as done. Aye tha's ney right son, tha's jus ney right
(impales ROSCOE to death and then ROSCOE dies)
TIM MINCHIN: That'll show ye, ye scally wee lassy. Och aye the noo
seems like it would be easy.
none of this matters any more
not the one with all the good stuff happening, like hanging out in a corner for 3 minutes.
and didn't believe in an afterlife at all. But with this compelling evidence and scientifically rigourous study, I'm convinced. Cheers pegfeet for challenging my narrowed world view!
I didn't realise for at least half the thread.
