No, there is a huge number of anecdotes.

But it is proved in the comp theory.


I would say that your argument is that consciousness does not supervene on a *fundamental* physical brain. I don't think it shows that consciousness can exist without there also being a physical environment in which it exists, even if the physical is not fundamental but is part of the same computations. In any case I don't see that it supports NDE's against more mundane explanations.
