    Many years ago my brother and several friends ate a stew of what was thought to be wild potatoes. It was actually something very toxic and they were rushed to intensive care.
    One Christmas years after, the talk turned to religion, and he matter of factly started describing his near death experience.
    He had been on the operating table and found he was looking down at himself as the medics worked. He said that as they saved him he felt annoyance as he returned to his body.

    This is someone who had no interest in the paranormal, a geologist, who I can never recall previously talking of such things.

    Google revealed similar descriptions. So frequent were they that some operating theatres, around the top of cupboards, which can only be seen from above, have written messages for validation.

    Trying to analyse it I thought of what it might indicate about a soul brain interface.
    First, as a detached soul, he had an emotive reaction, indicating that souls have similar emotions to those we feel
    Second, does it indicate anything about the soul brain disconnection? Does the soul disconnect from a dying brain or does the brain no longer hold the connection to the soul?
    Looking for computer network analogies, the thing that appeals, although simplistic, is a wifi connection.

    Really interesting story! I've never had an actual NDE but I am a strong believer. About a year ago Dundee posted a story about how his son, who he said has never believed in alien visitors, witnessed a UFO in fairly good detail. It's always interesting to hear the nonbelievers describe an incident of high strangeness.

    I'm hopeful that the brain is actually a biological fractal receiver, a sort of radio receiver if you will, and that it receives the soul and thereby acts to fulfill desires and objectives of the soul. To me the soul and consciousness are one and the same and the body and brain are only biological matter. When damaged the brain is like a haywire receiver, but because it's still alive there's a connection back to the soul which exists until the body dies. I am not surprised by out of body experiences personally.

    If I were having a near death experience I'm pretty sure it would not occur to me to read the tops of the cupboards. lol

    Like the analogy of a damaged brain as a faulty receiver, historically damage has led to many discoveries about the brain's operation. Perhaps as our knowledge improves we will be able to be separate these factors.

    From his brief description, when he was looking down, he had both sight and sound perception. I find it's similarity to our normal perception quite strange.

    I would also be interested to know if there are correlations between people that have had these experiences and their subsequent lives.

    Officially the system wants us to believe that we are only biological organisms whose thoughts arise out of electro~chemical reactions. Un~officially a search is on to find the quantum highway which bridges between the soul and the brain, and so as to exploit this link to whatever useful ends may avail themselves.

    In my opinion the idea is that if the connection can be identified than it can be interdicted and that's probably not a good thing for the majority of life here or elsewhere.
