Death is not an event, it's a process.

Theists, think of death as the universe wanting her stardust back, that's all.
Nothing changes except you don't get to keep your consciousness, no biggie.

Apparently, it's a big fucking biggie!

I was admitting a man from the ICU to the rehab unit . This involves doing a physical assessment and asking questions. He started telling me about his NDE and I pretended I did not hear him and asked the next question. I am too busy for that nonsense.

You're clearly wrong.

If people actually died during these episodes, they'd be called 'death experiences'.  Funny how nobody who has actually had a death experience has come back to tell us what it's like.  Know why?  BECAUSE THEY'RE FUCKING DEAD!!

Lol this reminded me of George Carlin so much.

Specifically this quote:

George Carlin Wrote:[...]you know where the sanctity of life came from? We made it up! You know why? Cause we're alive! Self-interest. Living people have a strong interest in promoting the idea that somehow life is sacred. You don't see Abbott and Costello running around, talking about this shit, do you? We're not hearing a whole lot from Mussolini on the subject. What's the latest from JFK? Not a god damned thing, cause JFK, Mussolini, and Abbott and Costello are fucking dead. They're fucking dead, and dead people give less than a shit about the sanctity of life. Only living people care about it, so the whole thing grows out of a completely biased point of view. It's a self-serving, man-made bullshit story. It's one of these things we tell ourselves so we'll feel noble. Life is sacred, makes you feel noble.

I'd say it's a state. A permanent state of not being alive anymore.

Interesting that you quote wiki and a news report, but no medical or scientific studies, papers or reports.

Of course the OP can just talk out of his ass, but I need to provide specific references.

Quote:The Lazarus phenomenon is described as delayed return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) after cessation of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).


Good enough for you?
