Life after Death?

Post by hope » 14 Feb 2018 23:32

Is there life after death? It's one of the core questions that makes us human. Now, we may finally have an answer.
New research suggests that human consciousness doesn't necessarily cease immediately once the heart stops
Patients whose hearts had stopped but were revived have reportedly been able to "describe watching doctors and
nurses working; they'll describe having awareness of full conversations, of visual things that were going on, that
would otherwise not be known to them," said Dr. Sam Parnia, director of critical care and resuscitation research at
NYU Langone School of Medicine in New York City.

Physicians medically define death as when the heart has stopped beating, "Technically speaking, that's how you
get the time of death - it's all based on that moment when the heart stops," Dr Parnia explained.
He added that cardiac arrest refers to the disruption of the electrical signals that get the heart to pump, which
leads to death. No blood flow to the brain means no brain function.

The cerebral cortex-where thinking takes place -slows down to the point where brainwaves cannot be determined
by an electric monitor; the well known term for this is "flatlining."
Brain cells begin to die within seconds of this, but Dr Parnia says that can take hours following the stopping of the
heart. This could mean consciousness is still taking place.

Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) can help to keep the brain working by sending a small amount of blood it's way,
which can slow the death of brain cells but, "it isn't enough to kick-start the brain into working again, which is
why reflexes don't resume during CPR," Dr Parnia says.

"If you manage to restart the heart, which is what CPR attempts to do, you'll gradually start to get the brain
functioning again.. The longer you're CPR, those brain cell death pathways are still happening-they're just happening
at a slightly slower rate.

Dr Parnia states that a considerable amount of anecdotes evidence reveals that some people whose hearts stopped
and then restarted could accurately describe what had occurred around them during resuscitation.
These memories were further confirmed by medical staffers present at the time.

Is there really an afterlife, this is exactly where we should start investigating.


Accordingly to Biocentrism, death is not the end of the journey, but <a> journey.
