Huh? If its after death then they are not "nearly" dead they are completely dead. The fact that sometimes the brain generates hallucinations when it is seriously deprived of oxygen has few philosophical implications. It's the "near" part that makes this a bore, but if somebody were dead and buried for 20 years and then came back and told us all what it was like, well..., that would be interesting. > This is also suggested by "out of the body" experiences > It's odd that, although it should be easy to show if it exists, it has never been conclusively demonstrated that while "out of the body" anybody has gained any information about anything that they did not already have when they were in their body.
