Near-Death Experiences: What we know about death, immortality, and near-death experiences

 


Interesting video

Towards the end, @ around the 46:15 mark, Professor John Martin Fischer mention the situation where in Japan ,the Japanese don’t generally report seeing a light at the end of the tunnel . They don’t. But instead what they’ll usually report seeing is “seeing a rock garden”. A “extra spectacular one”, i’d guess i would be like, too. And maybe its due to reason because,the way that in Japan, this thought is also “a specially comforting kind of thought” among so many of the Japanese people too. Its culturally related to “the Japanese way of life”. Its to do with “ideas”of  what they’ll also all dream about doing, within “their old age” someday. Its the particular kind of things like they’d all hope for. The idea, that serve to help provide them “a form of comfort“.They’ll all have the idea, of them “purchasing a piece of land together” (with some others), so as to then all help each other to create “most wonderful rock garden” together. That’s what the Japanese with see as being a “extra specially comforting” thought, to them

So its, as if its a “culturally influenced” thing.For instance, the “Hindus NDE experiences”, will usually “relate back to the Hindu” culture too. And so on

Depending on your cultures background, will “also correlate with” whatever type of NDE ,you’ll then also have.They are not always all the same. So, its cultural (memory?) 

How else could it be explained ?. If not by considering that the “memory defined” by each humans “cultural background”, could play a huge part in defining what type of NDE they’ll then each have too

I have a feeling, that perhaps it might all relate back to last gasp “surge” of “electrical activity” happening within the human brain. Maybe “the surge” of electrical activity, could also cause the brains power to become “magnified” within those moments when human beings organs “are all struggling hard” to all continue-on working.Or something 

There was a story what was told within our own family what related to the death of our father who’d died of cancer at a fairly young age . He’d evidently “become more aware”,again, within the very last few moments of his life, on his death bed, and reported seeing some pleasing sight.Which really doesn’t even surprise me any at all either. Being how he’d always constantly been taught how to believe in “a heaven”.And life eternal .All throughout his childhood, and his teen age years, and then throughout adulthood as well too, he’d always been expecting to end up in “a-heaven” where by he’d then be rejoined by his parents, and grandparents and so on

These beliefs would be quite fine, too, if they were “not being able” to be hijacked by greedy human who’d be intent on using the belief to extract people money, by turning them into sheep, through use of fear as a tool so as to make human “become mindless”

The Brethren culture, today, will also be still taught how to “cling onto the idea” of themselves going to a heaven. Very similar to same way how all Jim Jones followers will have also done so as well too. 

The belief are always culturally driven. So, so long as you can find a way to allow yourself to “really believe-it”, then what ever it is that you’ve been intensively indoctrinated so as to firmly-believe, will then also be the “lasting memory” of what will have been firmly implanted within the “brain activity” 

Little doubt that even the brave Aztec human, who’d have volunteered themselves to be sacrificed . Would have also died in fairly similar ways as well too. And even in a “state of ecstasy” too perhaps

Why?

Because of the way how the “expectation” had of already been able to become firmly etched within the background memories of their minds, before their death. As far as im aware, i haven’t heard of any historical account written, of what describe instances of Aztec sacrifice death, where by in the last few moment of death the brave Aztec would “had suddenly cried out to Jesus

It just didn’t happen.

Why not?

Well, for one thing, they (the Aztec) never even knew anything about Jesus. Had not heard a word spoken about him.Had they. So therefore , there were also no way that “this particular memory” would ever have any way in which to “become etched” within the minds/memories of these Aztec people, either

Because it all comes back to each peoples cultures. And the “particular memories” of what directly connect back to each culture too

We all know that the Brethren are guilty of involvement in great evil. They’ve even been the cause of a number of suicides. Been instigator of broken marriages.And so on And yet, how many times, do we hear of any elderly Brethren who’d be dieing in great fear?.

The way people die, relates back to “their ways of thinking”. Relates back to the “prevailing thoughts” that will also have been able to have become “firmly etched” within the human mind

We never hear many reports coming out from India to suggest that Hindu are generally having fearful death, where by they’ll suddenly be known to be calling out the name of Jesus, suddenly “out of the blue”, within their last few breathes, on their death beds

Do we

It generally just doesn’t occur

And likely wont occur often, either, mainly because of the cultural connection. Hindu’s minds will have been firmly etched with religious beliefs of what relate back to the Hindu faith

 

 

 

About ExEB

I'm a agnostic/atheist . Interested in learning more about science. I also am an "ex-member" of a group most publicly known within modern times, as the Exclusive Brethren. Whom are an off-shoot of the original Plymouth Brethren group. I'd say it likely my personality could possibly be described as quirky.You know ,as in being , unconventional , unorthodox , unusual, off-centre, strange, bizarre, weird, peculiar, odd, freakish, outlandish, offbeat, out of the ordinary, bohemian, alternative, zany I'm sure iv'e been classed as "crazy" . Many times But then, being born into a group like the exclusive brethren. Doesn't lend itself ? to tend to produce things considered as being "very normal" .Does it I escaped the Exclusive Brethren cult as a 15 year old teenager. Even since that time iv'e been trying to adjust to living life outside the cult. With much of my life being lived within the genre of "wild colonial boy" style. In the general sense of a church-rebel picking and choosing from role models who appeared within-life along the way. But as the exclusive brethren cult had traditionally maintained a general church-rule , of need to shun and totally excommunicate any ex member of their group.Treating such people as if they were dead. Thus this situation developed more to do with my need of following traditionally enforced church-rule , as apposed to it being so much about "life-choices". Certain emotional experiences, and parts of life in general, have led to me adopting a sense of low self esteem. Which is a situation i still deal with from time to time. Through my ongoing interest in science. I find i am able to gather more information to help me better understand my situation. Much about life for me, has often seemed like a massive puzzle.With many missing pieces.
