    .... what he experienced while dead is extremely interesting!

    His records were reviewed by the physician who brought him back five years later
    and he commented on Dean Braxton's situation.

    Personally I believe Dean Braxton's testimony of what he experienced and I am truly impressed by his clarity and humility about what he went through.

    One of the most interesting potential topics that I want to look into further is the specific way in which his wife Mrs. Marilyn Braxton prayed that resulted in her husband coming back into his body and......... having no negative side effects from the twenty nine different things that were wrong with his body!

    His wife Marilyn refused to let people visit her husband Dean if they did not believe that he could be healed!

    That intriguing detail is around the thirteen minute mark in this video.

    Brain chemistry is really cool. The hallucinations he experienced are typical of oxygen deprived brains.

    Yes...... what he experienced is typical but it is also impressive how these near death experiencers
    verify each other..... For example at the 22:29 minute mark in the video he goes into details on how
    our former pets are there........ they are glad for us that we made it to heaven..... and they come to meet us.......

    Many near death experiencers talk or write about this interesting detail that many deeply religious Christians.......
    like Mr. Dean Braxton was even before his near death experience.......
    they tend to NOT believe that animals could be there!

    I was involved in a bad motorcycle accident around 10 years ago. On the surface it didn't look too bad. I had six fx ribs, a fx scapula, a subdural hematoma and a badly beat up Nolan full face helmet. Four days later when I came out of a coma I was told that I had flat lined twice. I don't know for how long because I didn't ask. I can only say there was no light at the end of my tunnel.

    Now I admit that I could be wrong.....
    but Dr. Ken Ring went into the subject of why over seventy percent of people who flatline
    do not remember any out of the body experience.

    Dr. Maurice Rawlings also wondered about this so he hypnotized his cardiac patients......
    took them back to the time that they flatlined in a trance.....
    and some of them saw something so horrifying that they totally repressed the memory
    of what they saw.

    Former Skeptic Howard Storm stated that he didn't want to try to remember what the
    gang there did to him during the first part of his brush with death where he was lured downward!

    Yes, his hallucination is like every other hallucination.

    Actually...... his is a little different because after he began to come back into four dimensional space - time...... his doctor was planning on sawing off all of his toes after them
    not having had blood in an hour and forty five minutes but........

    guess what.......

    his toes are all perfect!

    That is some serious positive side effect to a hallucination if you ask me!?

    His toes have nothing to do with the fact he was hallucinating.

    The fact that his toes did not have to be amputated after his having flatlined is evidence that what he reports seeing
    seemed to connect his spirit or soul to a realm where medical science is far, far, far, far, far more advanced than we are
    in 2019.

    no it isn’t. It’s evidence he hallucinated, just like every other person you’ve posted about who had a “NDE”

    It is fascinating stuff.... in 1943 Dr. George Ritchie is shown four higher invisible dimensions of space - time
    much as is postulated in String Theory..... and all of this decades before String Theory is made into a household
    phrase by Stephen Hawking Ph. D. and others.

    There’s a possibility that because his physiological state ceased for a short while, he became what he was minus his body (the afterlife). A human is ultimately the totality of his memories and experiences (and there lack of), and that’s all that will be left when the physical body ceases to function.

    So the people that hallucinate where it seems more real than reality only see heaven? Even atheists?

    Why not see past experiences? Things already experienced?

    It is possible that the brain is a transceiver of consciousness and not the creator of it. So when the brain no longer can receive it consciousness continues on and enters into another dimension .

    Dr.Eben Alexander had zero brain activity and experienced a reality that was more real than what we experience in daily life. You saying a brain with no activity hallucinates? I dont believe that. Hallucinations happen in a brain that has activity.

    Good interview with Peter Fenwick addressing many topics typically posed by skeptics.

    He didn’t have any experience when he had no brain activity. He hallucinated when he had brain activity.

    Not really. I mean for near death experiences to really be substantiated they would have to be wildly different. The fact that so many are similar, the same as dreams or UFO sightings are so similar, is that people are preconditioned by society to believe a certain way.

    I mean with dreams you can actually interpret what a dream means now simply because so many people have the same ones when in fact, if they were unique experiences they would be all over the place to such a magnitude that it would be impossible to draw a comparison simply given the amount of information processed by the normal human brain. Statistically it is impossible for so many people to dream the same way about the same thing without being conditioned in some way to do so. This is why the idea of "going home" or a "bright lite" is so common in near death experiences, because it's what they've heard about and it's what their mind is interpreting for them while they are in this state.

    It is more of a mental reflex more than an actual experience.

    Does Dean Braxton publish his medical records to substantiate his claim? If not, why not?
