Oblivion — that the worst thing in death. Comes bony, grabs his throat and … everything. What's next? Void, the unknown. In this sense, the ancient people were protected by us. Even the average Hellene clearly knew that after his death his soul to stand trial, then pass through a corridor of hell Erebus. And, if it is considered unworthy, will go straight into the Tartarus. If zarekomenduet heroic — will find immortality in the Elysian Fields of joy and bliss. Because he lived Hellene — not grieved, not knowing pangs of fear and uncertainty. What we are waiting for the last line?
Grounds for immortality
Differently on many issues and positions, scriptures and religions of all times and peoples of the world are showing a surprising unanimity in all matters relating to the continuation of existence after death people. Believed in the immortality of the soul in ancient Egypt, Babylon, India and Greece. So it's a collective experience of humanity. But could it be an accident? And do not be made on the basis of no other than the fear of death and the desire of eternal life? And what a start of the current church fathers, do not doubt the immortality of the soul? Well, with them, it's simple, the reader will say. They do not care that the average Greeks: an armored their faith, because they have nothing to fear. Indeed, the main source for Christian belief in eternal life — Scriptures: Old and New Testaments, the Epistles, Revelation. They are not afraid of death, because it is for them — the only entrance into another life, a life with Christ. Sure and Muslim — after the physical death of his soul move to a different world, where it will wait for the judgment day.
Buddhists are on the fact that the soul is constantly reborn: leaving one mortal body, she gets more.
Perhaps the least said about life after death Judaism. The books of Moses extraterrestrial life were minimal: the Jews in the majority to believe that heaven and hell exist on earth. But they believe that eternal life — it goes on in her children and grandchildren. No wonder they say: a Jew one whose grandchildren Jews.
Only Krishna, also do not doubt the immortality of the soul, based on logical and empirical arguments. To help them — multiple data experienced clinical death, when people rise above their bodies and soar through the tunnel to the unknown world, and Vedic philosophy. Here it is, the famous Vedic argument for eternity of the soul: "I see changes in my body, which is converted from the body of the baby in the old man's body, but the fact that I can contemplate this change means that I'm out of body changes , for the observer, should be in the side. " You are not convinced by this argument? Well, it means you are one of the great army of those little just believe: they need to know for sure.
Light at the End of the Tunnel
Common sense suggests that we have no chance to find out what happens to a person after the old woman comes to him with a scythe. More surprising that many scientists hold a very different opinion. First of all — it's doctors. And all because of their medical practice refutes known axiom from the world no one returned. Of all people, and doctors are familiar with hundreds of these "returnees". And you are — at least vaguely — heard about the phenomenon of "clinical death."
Usually all goes through the same scenario. The patient — usually during surgery under anesthesia — stops the heart. Doctors state the "clinical death" and start resuscitation, all the forces trying to run the "motor." Time goes by seconds — because after 5-6 minutes the brain and the rest of the vital organs begin to suffer from hypoxia (lack of oxygen), and it is fraught with serious consequences.
The patient, meanwhile, the "exit" from the body for a while watching himself and of the doctors from the top, and then sail down the long hallway to the light. And then, according to statistics compiled by the British doctor in the past 20 years, 72% of "dead" go to heaven. Grace descends upon them, they see the angels, or their deceased relatives and friends. All cheering and laughing. You can not say about the other 28%: they go straight to hell fire. So when some divine entity, which is usually in the form of a bunch of light, said to them: "Your time has not come," — they are very happy. And to return to his body. This means that the doctors were able to evacuate the patient — and his heart begins to beat again. Death has receded. But those who looked over her threshold, will never forget it.
And those who are braver — Share a revelation received from clinicians and close relatives.
Study "near-death experiences," began in the 1970s. Surprisingly, they are continuing to this day, although copies of this account has been broken a lot. Someone saw the phenomenon of undeniable evidence of eternal life, while others, on the contrary, and is now trying to prove that heaven and hell, and in general all the proverbial "next world" — are within. They say it is not any real place. And just hallucinations, a process characteristic of the fading of consciousness. Yes, but why did they all have the same? There is an answer to this question: "The brain is deprived of blood and oxygen. Share part of the visual cortex off very quickly. A pole occipital lobes with a dual system of blood supply, yet still function. And the sight of it dramatically narrowed. There is only a narrow strip, which provides a central, "Pipe" vision. Here you have the required tunnel "- explains the corresponding member of the Academy of Medical Sciences Sergei Levitsky.
He objected that those who rose in detail told about the actions of the medical team, "conjure" the body, about their relatives, grieving in the corridors. One patient, for example, completely come to himself seven days after clinical death, asked the doctors, so that they returned it to the denture, excavated during the operation. The same could not remember where they stuck it in the confusion. And then the patient just have a place for them, where is the prosthesis, he remembered him during his "journey."
Proof of Life
It turns out that at the moment in medicine are no absolute proof that the afterlife does not exist. And get them very desirable. That is why in 2010, and started research AWARE: scientists from 25 medical centers in England and the United States came together to thoroughly examine the experience of 1500 patients who survived cardiac arrest and clinical death. Their goal — to experimentally verify some of the data relating to the state of the dying man. The head of the study, Dr. Sam guy from the British University of Southampton, and that's what he thought of him: "Is there another world or not, this issue is not my competence. You'd be surprised, but the memories of their experience remain only 10-20% of patients who have experienced clinical death. We just want to understand what happens to the brain at the moment. "
The experiment have three years. Scientists have determined that this period would be enough to "score" and interview 1,500 patients. Check as they will be very simple: in the resuscitation of all 25 hospitals on the shelves and ceiling lampshades lay the pictures with the expectation that no patients admitted to the ward, can not see them. But if the operation had to stop the heart and it leaves the body, we see the hidden pictures for it not working. Of course, back in the body, and rising, he will be able to describe them. And it will be a strong argument in favor of that consciousness can exist apart from the physical environment.
Results of the study should be finalized in late 2012. In the meantime, doctors are silent: they are ready for any eventuality. Yet hope, "Since we are trying to break through the boundaries of traditional science, then wait the most amazing discoveries. At the end of XIX century physicists working with the laws of Newton and had no doubt that they explain everything. However, when it came to the study of atoms, it appears that work there other laws. So it is with the brain. In 99% of cases, we can not separate the mind from the body, they work together. But in extreme conditions, everything can be different. Therefore, we are interested in death as the most extreme of the possible states. And if we demonstrate that consciousness continues to exist after the brain is turned off, it will give us the ability to assume that consciousness exists in itself. " That's it, no more — no less.
Effect of Solaris
But what if we look at the problem from the other side and remember, first, the law of conservation of energy, and second, the fact that the basis of all matter is energy start? There is in man. And, of course, does not disappear after the death of the physical body and goes directly into the energy field of the Earth. However, there are exceptions. Natalia spondylitis recalled that after her husband's death, "the human brain was a mystery to her, which in principle can not be done". Wife became a ghost be it even in the daytime: shared his thoughts, gave advice, tells where to find it. And spondylitis, a renowned scholar, never doubted the reality of the situation: "What was it — a product of my mind was in a state of stress, or something else — I do not know. I know one thing for sure — he had imagined, but was in fact ".
The appearance of "ghosts" of the dead relatives scientists call the "effect of Solaris" — or the materialization of "method" by Stanislav Lemma. But it happens very rarely, perhaps only in those cases where mourners have sufficient power by force in order to "pull" of the earth's field phantom dear loved one.
The transition to a new level
Another is inconsolable grieving come to the aid of mediums. That's what happened to the scientist, geophysicist Vsevolod Cossacks.
An adherent of scientific materialism has changed his views in 70 years when his wife died. He just could not accept the loss and sat up writing about ghosts, the afterlife and spiritualism. As a result, spent more than 460 sessions, wrote the book "The contours of the universe", which described in detail the method of proof of the reality of life after death. And most importantly — able to communicate with his beloved wife: she is young and beautiful, as well as all those who live in the other world. The explanation is simple, according to plows, "Peace" departed "- a product of the materialization of their desires, so it is similar to Earth, and even better than him. Most of them are in the young and beautiful appearance. They feel just as real as the inhabitants of the earth are aware of their physicality and are able to enjoy life. Clothing is formed by thought and desire departed, perhaps not consciously. Love and affection there is stored or regaining, but lack of sexuality, although different from friendship. Births not. Life-sustaining feeding is not required, but for fun or to eradicating the earth habits eating some delicious meals, mainly fruits, which are abundant and beautiful as the flowers. "
Not life — a fairy tale. True, there is a nuance: if the "next world" is really a product materialize desires, we must urgently rebuild and cease to fear death. It's time to learn to accept it as a quality to a new level. And only. And then die not scary. And even to part with the family is not so painful.
