** lekatt, ** (Adressing the first link) I am not a doctor, but I have NEVER heard of any surgical procedure which routinely “drains all of the blood from the brain” and induces brain death. To tell you the truth, I have never heard of anyone sucessfully resucitated from brain death. Note that the story comes from an “anonymous” source. To pu it politely, I think the story is a big, steaming pile.
Most people who report an NDE are not truly “dead.” Their heart may have stopped, but brain activity did not completely cease. As I understand, it takes up to four minutes for the brain to die after the heart stops beating. Most people are “brought back” before brain death, which, as I understand is irreversable.
NDEs are most likely the result of chemicals released by a brain which is starved for oxygen. They’re hallucinations: nothing more. Interestingly enough, no Muslim who experienced a NDE has ever reported seeing Jesus, nor has any Christian reported seeing Allah. To put it simply, you “see” what you expect to see.
