What happens when we die remains one of the greatest mysteries of humanity. There was, and never will be, a definite confirmation of the afterlife, but some people are convinced that there is life after death. (NDE).
One such man, a man named Michael, says that he saw the next life.
Michael died for a time after suffering a heart attack during surgery.
At the brief moment of death, Michael thinks he saw the metaphorical light at the end of the tunnel and is now unsure of what awaits him when he dies.
Michael explained to the Near Death Knowledge Research Foundation: “I found myself in a dark tunnel.
“There was a light on the horizon and I can see people standing there.
“I couldn’t see their faces because they were too far away.
“Then the scene went away and I heard someone say, ‘Welcome back’.”
While Michael believes his experience is a testament to the afterlife, some researchers believe his experience is unparalleled and is associated with an increase in brain activity. at the end of a person’s life.
Researchers from the University of Michigan clinically induced heart attack in rats while simultaneously monitoring brain activity.
They were surprised to find that brain activity had increased in the last 30 seconds of their lives.
Jimo Borjigin, PhD, associate professor of molecular and integrated neuroscience and associate professor of neurology, said: “This study, performed in animals, is the first to deal with what happens to the dying neurophysiologic state of the brain.
“We reasoned that, if near-death experience comes from brain activity, neural correlations of consciousness should be recognized in humans or animals even after cerebral blood flow has ceased.”
Basically, if the brain is more active, a person may have vivid scenes, leading them to believe they have seen the next life.
Dr Borjigin said: “The prediction that we get some signs of sensory activity in the brain at the time of a heart attack was confirmed by the data.”
