The scientific study of the phenomenon of near-death experiences (3 photos)

For the first time attention to the process of death it was drawn in the 60s, in connection with the publication of a book entitled "On Death and Dying» ( «On Death and Dying»), written by well-known psychiatrist, Swede Elisabeth Kubler-Ross. She worked with a former prisoner of the Nazi concentration camps and made sure that there is something unexpected at the time of death.

Dr. Raymond Moody, a young student of the Faculty of Philosophy came upon experience with Dr. George Ritchie, a psychiatrist from Virginia.

He announced that Richie died of bilateral pneumonia, but he survived clinical death, which as such at the time has not yet been studied and recognized.

Moody collected similar stories for their future bestseller "Life after Life", which marked the beginning of the study of the phenomenon of near-death experiences.

Gradually this work joined the scientists in other fields. Among them - the American cardiologist Dr. Michael Seibu (Sabom), published in 1982 the results of his observations: "Memories of death: medical research." Being a skeptic at first, Seibu sought medical evidence that these cases are real, to see if the patient can describe the resuscitation techniques used on him. If so, he could see them only from their hovering disembodied state.

Seibu and Moody asked the scientific community seriously permission to study this phenomenon. Later it was created the International Association of studying the phenomenon of near-death - a place where scientists can share discoveries and ideas.

The British branch of the Association opened Margot Gray, psychologist and physician practices in clinical psychotherapy. Margot herself experienced clinical death, traveling to India in 1976. Her research has appeared in the book "Return from the dead."

Legalization of these works in the eyes of the scientific community, we owe much of Dr. Kenneth Ring. He was able to show that religious beliefs, age and nationality are not reflected on the experience. As someone who is interested in an altered state of consciousness, he had only to hear the story of what he has seen during clinical death, to get carried away with this problem seriously.

This happened in 1977, and since then the Ring has been studying near-death phenomena and conjugate. It created the International Association Ring.

In 1992, Dr. Ring published the results of an in-depth case studies of clinical death in comparison with the supposedly "temporary kidnapping" people aliens. This idea seemed very provocative, if not absurd. But "Omega Project" shows that there is clearly something in common in these phenomena.

n both cases, the person is in an altered state of consciousness and experiencing similar unusual visual sensations. Later they both come back with changed outlook on life, and with the efforts of mental abilities. Dr. Ring says that, unlike us, such people have a different perception of reality.

David Lorimer, former teacher of Uingestera, chairman of the Association (1992). He says:

"Some scientists describe the vision in the state of clinical death as pure hallucinations, because their education makes them so responsive. We have recorded many examples of clinical death without cerebral INOX (oxygen starvation of the brain). Now we have developed a program classification and sorting of many letters with messages about this phenomenon. Then we will have scientific research and publish the results in a scientific journal articles. "
Dr Peter Fenwick is a consultant for Neurophysiology at the hospital St. Thomas Hospital and Models in London. He is also president of the Association. Dr Fenwick said that the riddle of clinical death can be attributed to a publicly available terms:
"The answer depends on whether I stick to the scientific or conventional wisdom. Both can be taken into account. Maybe there is a connection with quantum mechanics. World view of life after death would help her to understand the reality and to find a workaround. "
The question naturally arises: Are there any other evidence, independent of the descriptions given by the survivors of the death, which would confirm the reality of what we call the experience of death? Many people report that when they were out of their bodies, they saw the events that take place in the physical world. Confirmed whether any of these messages other witnesses in respect of which it is known that they were present near?
In relation to a fairly large number of cases, this question can be answered in the affirmative absolutely - "Yes!". Moreover, descriptions of events, which are contained in the testimonies of survivors of out of body experience, are of very great accuracy.
Some doctors say that they are simply unable to understand how the patients do not have any medical knowledge, could so thoroughly and correctly describe the resuscitation procedure, whereas the doctors who conducted the intensive care unit, knew exactly what patients are dead.
In several cases, patients are told that with some astonishment greeted the doctors and other people their stories about what was happening around him, while they were "dead."
For example, one girl told me that while she was dead, and was out of his body, she went into another room, where she saw her older sister, who was crying and whispering: "Oh, Katie, please, do not die!". Later, her sister was extremely surprised when Kathy told her where she saw her and that she (the sister) said at the time.
