Why people do not include the original link in their mails is something I can not understand
This is the article where the text was extracted: http://www.wired.com/wiredscience/?p=155740 The most interesting thing is at the end: It reports a pacient resucitated after 40 minutes from a cooling state: *Parnia:* I wasn’t involved in his care when he arrived at the hospital, but I know his doctors well. We’d been working with the emergency room to make sure they knew the importance of starting to cool people down. When Tiralosi arrived, they cooled him, which helped preserve his brain cells. They found vessels blocked in his heart. That’s now treatable. By doing CPR and cooling him down, the doctors managed to fix him and ensure that he didn’t have brain damage. When Tiralosi woke up, he told nurses that he had a profound experience and wanted to talk about it. That’s how we met. He told me that he felt incredibly peaceful, and saw this perfect being, full of love and compassion. This is not uncommon. *People tend to interpret what they see based on their background: A Hindu describes a Hindu god, an atheist doesn’t see a Hindu god or a Christian god, but some being. Different cultures see the same thing, but their interpretation depends on what they believe.* The last paragraph is in accordance with what I predict from my natural selection-based hypothesis (expressed a few threads before). http://email@example.com/msg37408.html Either if this is a genuine return of the soul to the body or not, what is undisputable is the existence of the phenomenon and for me, there is clear the coherence between what traditional religious wishdom say and the evolutionary hypotheses. My standpoint is 1)We don not know, 2) traditional wishdom know something that we do not know. 3) Even if you think that traditional wishdom don´t know exactly what happens, we should learn from it. 4)To reject the latter is a betrayal of scientific enquiry. The knowledge of the past is not the result of what a bunch of idiots have said until we, the Illuminated arrived, but the result of deep discussions and confrontations of ideas, experiences and worldviews. 2013/5/17 Roger Clough <rclo...@verizon.net> > Hi Art Funkhouser > > The documented fact that people have had "near death" > experiences after death, after electrical activity in the brain > ceases suggests to me at least that the mind does not > need the brain to function. > > This is also suggested by "out of the body" experiences > > Dr. Roger Clough NIST (ret.) 5/17/2013 > See my Leibniz site at > http://team.academia.edu/RogerClough > > > ----- Receiving the following content ----- > From: Art Funkhouser > Receiver: undisclosed-recipients: > Time: 2013-05-16, 09:33:59 > Subject: [Mind and Brain] Consciousness after Death: Strange Tales From > theFrontiers of Resuscitation Medicine > > > > > >Consciousness after Death: Strange Tales From the Frontiers of > >Resuscitation Medicine -- (Wired -- April 24, 2013) > > > > > >Sam Parnia practices resuscitation medicine.
