P.H. Atwater is a noted author of near death experiences. Has anyone experienced
a near death experience? Did you have a heavenly or a hellish near death experience? If so, how did it transform your life?
A near death experience is an amazing learning experience which opens your consciousness massively. A lot of people do not talk about their near-death experiences because they fear of being mocked at.
Have you ever experienced one?
The temporal lobe of the brain has been found to respond to some electrical stimulation by creating an exprience that seems to duplicate out of body experiences, near death experiences, feelings of euphorea, elation, and great peace as, sensations of precenses, and other feelings and sights that have been connected with metaphysical claims.
What does this mean?
It is not crushing proof that the metaphysical is not real - after all, it could simply show that the temporal lobe is the human gateway that allows these experiences; however, the physical properties of stimulation strongly suggests that the brain - specifically the temporal lobe - is reacting to stimulation without any metaphysical involvement.
The follows the understanding that dualism is probably inaccurate - that what we term the individual is a collection of neurons - we see this because physical damage to the brain in accidents cause changes to personality or even total loss of all personality traits.
Again, one may believe that the mind of the brain injured patients survives intact - but the evidence does not support that view.

Many speak of near death experiences as proof of God or proof of life after death. A new British study demonstrates that near death experiences are the function of brain activity.http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-23672150What do you think?

Do you think near death experiences (NDEs)prove that there is life after death?Maybe NDEs and other spiritual transformational experiences can help all of us find better ways to live in this world today.
