    National Geographic article

    Post  Admin on Wed Jun 06, 2012 1:40 pm

    This is an article from 2010 by National Geographic. It doesn't surprise me how some use science as a dogma. If you notice, the near death experience is being generally applied in this article as in this is what causes the experience.

    My mother rather recently was in the trauma ward following losing a large amount of blood. As she was dying, she could see several people that she didn't recognize standing around her bed. They were not the medical staff, but ordinary folks young and old, all smiling. As she recovered, they continued to visit her. She's fine now, but is quite looking forward to the time of death when it comes.

    I find it absolutely fascinating that in cases like this and other NDE incidents that the fear of death completely disappears and some it seems even embrace it. Just wish I could shift my fear of death! I'm a young lad I shouldn't even be thinking of such "morbid" things in such a morbid way, should I?

    Sorry, just noticed your response.

    It’s not unusual to fear death. We’re based on survival of information. When we forget that we dreamed or are put under anesthesia and have no recollection, we feel that we experienced some form of death as in the loss of information, but that’s not true. We in fact begin to remember everything.

    What these moments of non-recognition should perhaps remind us of is that we are truly information carriers.

    Some of that fear may be that we will somehow know that we no longer exist? That's perhaps in reference to the selves that we believe us to be. But anyway, information is never actually lost and neurons throughout these bodies are producing lots of information (it goes somewhere but isn't lost). We consider it lost if we can't observe its existence, so we find ourselves lost in the uncertainty.

    Don't worry, you'll remember. And as crazy as this statement sounds; 'It's all good'. Very Happy
