Life After Death! New Study Shows “Mind Still Works After The Body Dies As Consciousness Persists”

Life after death should become even scarier as new study shows that the mind and consciousness of dead persons continue to work, at least for a short time – literally meaning that the deceased can recognise their own death being announced by medics.

The claim was made in a new research made by Dr Sam Parnia, director of critical care and resuscitation research at NYU Langone School of Medicine in New York City.

He and his team are looking at people who suffered cardiac arrest, technically died, but were later revived. It’s the largest study of its type ever carried out.

Some of those studied revealed that they had awareness of full conversations and seeing things that were going on around them, even after they were pronounced dead.

He said people in the first phase of death may still experience some form of consciousness.

“Once that happens, blood no longer circulates to the brain, which means brain function halts almost instantaneously. “You lose all your brain stem reflexes — your gag reflex, your pupil reflex, all that is gone.”

Dr Parnia and his team continue to investigate the pervasiveness of consciousness after death with twin studies in Europe and the United States who have suffered cardiac arrest, in the largest study of its kind.

He said: “In the same way that a group of researchers might be studying the qualitative nature of the human experience of ‘love,’ for instance, we’re trying to understand the exact features that people experience when they go through death, because we understand that this is going to reflect the universal experience we’re all going to have when we die.”

“We also study the human mind and consciousness in the context of death, to understand whether consciousness becomes annihilated or whether it continues after you’ve died for some period of time — and how that relates to what’s happening inside the brain in real time. “And the evidence reveals that people whose heart stopped and then restarted – usually on the operating table – could describe exactly what had been happening around them.

“The new research is an extension of these findings.”

Dr Parnia told Live Science: “They’ll describe watching doctors and nurses working and they’ll describe having awareness of full conversations, of visual things that were going on, that would otherwise not be known to them.”

Explaining the moment of death he said:

“It’s all based on the moment when the heart stops.

“Technically speaking, that’s how you get the time of death.”

  1. Pretty pictures coupled with a load of crock. How can you say that your brain shuts down yet your fully conscious and can hear everything that is said. Doctor I ask you, What have you been smoking and why are the journalists taking you seriously? Maybe you all had one big bong session.
