My Near Death Experiences
about just who made the decision for them to return to life (Blackmore, "Dying" 230). From this table it is obvious that there are significant changes in social, religious, death, and other attitudes in NDErs between the 2-year and 8-year follow-ups. " A Qualitative and Quantitative Study of the Incidence, Features and Aetiology of Near Death Experiences in Cardiac Arrest Survivors." Resuscitation. Kinseher feels this is the reason why a near-death experience is so unusual. Klüver's form constants have appeared in other drug-induced and naturally occurring hallucinations, suggesting a similar physiological process underlying hallucinations with different triggers. Pneumatic dental drills with the same shapes, and making similar sounds as the pneumatic saw used to cut her skull open, were in common use during the late 1970s and 1980s. Pam reported that during her OBE, she was able to view the operating room from above the head surgeon's shoulder, describing her out-of-body vision as "brighter and more focused and clearer than normal vision" (41). She reported having an out-of-body experience, floating up to a green field containing a large tree "with a brilliant white light on top and meeting her deceased father. Clearly we can encounter both the living and the dead in NDEs, just as we can in dreams. Devinsky, Orrin, Edward Feldmann, Kelly Burrowes, and Edward Bromfield. Twemlow, and Fowler.
But it has been sensationalized at the expense of the facts, facts which have been continually misrepresented by some parapsychologists and near-death researchers. Where OBEs do occur, "OBEs in Thai NDEs tend immediately to precede meetings with Yamatoots" (171). "aware-AWAreness during REsuscitation-a prospective study". Lanham, MD: Rowman and Littlefield, 2006: 367-421. Obviously, then, Braude has no vested interest in portraying the Pam Reynolds case as strong evidence for survival of bodily death.
So far as I can determine, there are no published reports about this NDE and Children's Hospital does not have a written version of this presentation archived. During that timeframe, about 15,000 patients suffering cardiac arrest are expected to be admitted to these centers, 1500 of whom are expected to be resuscitated. Variance in NDE studies, the prevalence of NDEs has been variable in the studies that have been performed. This troubled me not at all; indeed I seemed to have lost all sense of fear, but my back felt wet and slimy so I looked over my shoulder to investigate the cause. 4 Predictably, Janice Holden objected that the mere fact that some NDEs may be hallucinations does not logically entail that all NDEs are hallucinatory (Holden, "Heaven" 38). In the Fenwicks' sample only 50 of those who had NDEs when they were between 3-9 years old reported becoming more religious after the experience; by 16 or older this rose significantly to 90 (185). Alternatively, if extensive studies fail to uncover substantial cross-cultural consistency between NDE accounts, a sociological explanation for solely Western commonalities would be required. "Two Native North American Near-Death Experiences." Omega: Journal of Death and Dying. Springfield, IL: Charles. Knoblauch in 2001 performed a more selective study in Germany and found that 4 of the sample population had experienced an NDE. Researcher Lakhmir Chawla George Washington University medical centre in Washington DC argues that near death experiences were caused by a surge of electrical activity as the brain runs out of oxygen before death. In The Truth in the Light, the Fenwicks asks how an experience as coherent as an NDE could be generated in a disorganized dying brain, and how it could be encoded for vivid recall later: How is it that this coherent, highly structured experience sometimes.
