Rather then just the Liege study, let us look to November, when Dr. Sam  
Parnia, releases his research on the AWARE  project. He has a partial  sumary 
of this study in his new book, Erasing Death (US) or The Lazarus Effect  
(UK). Same book different titles.  Parnia's AWARE study involves 25  hospital 
emergency rooms, in which signs or messages are place in odd places,  that 
face upwards, to determine if out of body sensing is valid?  A patient  seeing 
a 5-pointed star with a daisy printed next to it, that has been  placed  3 
metre's above the emergency room floors might be an example of  what Parnia 
has done. If no patient was able to see what was on the sign, then  that 
tells us something.
 
Parnia's medical speciality is cardiology annd ressucitation. The main  
thrust of his research is not primarilly, NDE's but his focus is using  
techniques like cold treatments to preserve body and neural tissue. Parnia  
complains that depending on which emergency room physicians use cold revival  
techniques, and which do not, will effect the chances of survivability and  
recovery of the patient. Fore example, Dr. Parnia says that in the US, Seattle  
is the place to be, for cardiological issues, because in Seattle, hospitals 
are  well-versed and trained in cold revival techniques-cooling the heart, 
cooling  the brain, whatever?
 
The NDE aspect is a possibly significant side benefit to ressucitation  
research. What do I expect? I am not sure, although the opponents of the Liege  
study haven't yet come up with the "vividity" explanation, versus dreams,  
hallucinations, and drug trips. In other words, you can lose the cognitve  
regions of your brain, if you imbibe some bad, blotter acid, and not be able 
to  recognize your imagination, a visual image, a memory, from every day 
life. One  simply believes what one hears and see's. 
 
The vivid NDE stuff seems somehow different, whatever it's origin. Is there 
 a neuro-chemical mechanism that kicks in with super vivid hallucinations? 
Hard  to understand the neural mechanism for this. When you've lost blood, 
do you  produce a lot of serotonin, or endorphins? What evolution basis 
causes this, if  that is our explanation. How did it become a successful trait 
that permitted  wounded or damaged animals, to survive, and thus, mate, and 
therefore, go on to  have offspring with this trait? Nature, red in tooth and 
claw, would likely have  accidently evolved to elininate, such damaged 
animals. So what gives?
