Consciousness: what is it, where does it come from, and where does it go when we die?
Narration provided by JaM Advertising New Mexico www.tasteofjam.com
The notion of human consciousness has long been intertwined with the idea of a human soul; with discussions of the origins and fate of either capable of taking you on a rollercoaster ride of sci-fi fantasy and religious dogma as bloated as Grandma’s corpse.
Whenever a TV show runs out of material they always end the season with one of those crappy clip shows that no one likes. And it seems your brain does the same thing when you die, since many people report seeing a high-speed replay of their life’s memories flash before their eyes in the moments before death.
One of the most fascinating events described by those who have cheated death is the famous out of body experience, and judging by some of the first-hand accounts, this one seems like it’ll evade explanation for some time yet.
Since the dead are notoriously hard to interview, the best way of finding out how dying feels is to speak to those who’ve had a near death experience. And these almost-corpses tend to describe the same thing; a bright, white light that comes at the end of a euphoric trip down an ever-lasting tunnel.
