Researchers Find Evidence That Life Really Does "Flash Before the Eyes" of Dying People


Fictional characters will often describe seeing their lives “flash before their eyes” when close to death, but this experience could actually be a reality.

Scientists have analysed accounts from people who have had near death experiences and identified “life review experience” (LRE) as a trend.

Those involved in the study shared accounts of seeing events from their lives flash before them, but the events rarely occurred in chronological order. 

The researchers suggested LRE may occur because certain parts of the brain that stores memories are among the last to shut down when the body is close to death.

The researchers, from Hadassah University in Jerusalem, asked more than 200 people about their encounter of LRE, then analysed seven of these responses in depth.

One common theme was that the individual lost all sense of time when viewing life events.

According to The Telegraph, one participant involved in the study wrote:  “There is not a linear progression, there is lack of time limits... It was like being there for centuries. I was not in time/space so this question also feels impossible to answer.

    That one quote is very interesting:

    "It was like being there for centuries.  I was not in time/space so this question also feels impossible to answer."

    Perhaps that individual had one foot in the grave in the sense that they were partly in "Purgatory" (or whatever you want to call the state of awaiting Judgment).  A timeless, spaceless state of reviewing you life's events seems like just the thing to prepare you for Judgment.  Perhaps it is part of the mechanism by which we are all made aware of what we have done when our turn in line arrives?

    As for returning from death, I think that would be quite the test for someone to overcome.  Ok - now you've almost died, so what will you change with your second chance?

    I wonder what I would change if I came back from the brink of death?  I can only speculate, and uncertainly at that.

  • Years ago, my younger brother was in a bad car accident.  In the ambulance, on the way to the hospital, he died and was resuscitated.  One day he described the experience to me.  It most certainly would have made me contemplate the direction my life was headed.  In typical fashion though, he ignored the warning and hasn't changed a bit.

    If the politicians treat people this poorly when they're armed to the teeth,

    just imagine what they'll be willing to do once they've disarmed everyone.

    Can you elaborate about this experience at all? (Or if it's too personal, ignore my request - I just became curious because of the insight you possess).

  • My brother said that he found himself in a place of incredible bright, whiteness, where he felt a safety and joy that he thought was beyond anything he could describe.  At the same time, he was in a completely dark place of total fear and despair.

    To me, it sounded like there was a power showing him which direction his life choices could result in.  He has ignored the warning.

    There was more to his experience but it was more in the nature of an out of body thing.

    just imagine what they'll be willing to do once they've disarmed everyone.
