Dreams are not "pure products of imagination", and nobody has ever
suggested they were.
The researchers compared NDE reports to memories of real and imagined
But what does "memory of an imagined event" mean? It means the researchers
subjects to imagine remembering something that didn't happen. They
discovered that this
did not have as much sensory detail as the memories of real events and
But the memories of the NDEs are clearer than the real events. Common sense tells us
that memories of imagined events or dreams would be less detailed.
Common sense tells us that events that have a lot of emotional content (like being near
death) are going to be remember in more detail. That's why the researchers asked the
subjects to remember real and imagined events that had emotional content. But how likely
are they to have had an emotional event comparable to nearly dying? And the real events
were further in the past than the NDE. And as John Clark and others have pointed out the
NDE stories never have any new information. All of this is easily explained by assuming
that experience is produced by the brain and NDEs are dreams that occur during trauma
and/or lack to oxygen. Sensory-motive theory would predict that experience is independent
of those merely physical brains.
