A MAN who had a near death experience believes his consciousness left his body temporarily and he was able to see what was happening around him.

The person named Jon had a near death experience (NDE) when he almost drowned. After being submerged underwater for a period of time, Jon said his consciousness rose from his body. While he was having an out-of-body experience, Jon said it was the most euphoric moment of his life.

Writing on the Near Death Experience Research Foundation, Jon said: “I remember taking a deep breath, but it wasn’t air. It was water.

“The next thing I know it was like a pop and I was out of my body. I was slowly rising up in the air. I looked down and saw the back of my body.

“I saw my girlfriend flailing in the water and my friends coming towards us. I remember being engulfed in a peace and love. I can only describe this feeling by comparison.

“Imagine the best day you ever had and multiple that by a billion and that doesn’t even come close to the feeling I felt.

“I had my consciousness with me and all the knowledge that I had acquired in my life. I don’t know how I knew this, but I knew.

“Then there was a pop. I was on the dock with the paramedics working on me.”

Some researchers, however, have said these visions are a normal phenomenon and not necessarily a sign of an afterlife.

Dr Sam Parnia, director of critical care and resuscitation research at NYU Langone School of Medicine in New York City, told an Oz Talk: “People describe a sensation of a bright, warm, welcoming light that draws people towards it.

“They describe a sensation of experiencing their deceased relatives, almost as if they have come to welcome them.


    “They often say that they didn’t want to come back in many cases, it is so comfortable and it is like a magnet that draws them that they don’t want to come back.

    “A lot of people describe a sensation of separating from themselves and watching doctors and nurses working on them.”

    Dr Parnia said there are scientific explanations for the reaction, and says seeing people is not evidence of the afterlife, but more likely the brain just scanning itself as a survival technique.

    He said thanks to modern technology and science “death does not have to be limited to philosophy and religion, but it can be explored through science”.

    He added: “They can hear things and record all conversations that are going on around them.”
