Proof of afterlife? Todd Acamesis' soul 'left body and travelled through universe'

Todd Acamesis says the soul can leave the body and go on a journey even while you are alive. Canadian Todd Acamesis, 47, claims he has been having out of body experiences" (OBEs) for 42 years, since a near death experience at the age of five. The jury is still out on whether an OBE is real or just perceived, but apparently we can ALL do it relatively easily, according to Mr Acamesis. An OBE is the feeling that you are floating outside or above your body. Some experiencers even claim to have seen their own body externally while experiencing...

Brain activity appears to continue after people are dead

Brain activity may continue for more than 10 minutes after the body appears to have died, according to a new study. Canadian doctors in an intensive care unit appear to have observed a person's brain continuing to work even after they were declared clinically dead. In the case, doctors confirmed their patient was dead through a range of the normal observations, including the absence of a pulse and unreactive pupils. But tests showed that the patients’ brain appeared to keep working – experiencing the same kind of brain waves that are seen during deep sleep. In a study that noted...

2 Days After Death, Some Life Continues in Body

Death is more like the slow shutdown of a computer than the flipping off of a light switch, says a scientist, explaining a new study that shows genes in the body remain alive for about two days after the heart stops. In the study of mice and zebrafish, University of Washington researchers found that gene activity generally decreased after death, as would be expected, per New Scientist. But 548 zebrafish genes and 515 mouse genes showed peak levels of messenger RNA—which genes use to communicate with cells—up to 48 hours after death in what researchers termed the "twilight of death."...

Evidence shows consciousness may continue as a 'SOUL'

The possibility of life after death is one of the greatest mysteries of humanity, but now experts are claiming that there is no death of consciousness – just death of the body. According to some well-respected scientists, quantum mechanics allows consciousness to live on following the body’s eventual demise. While scientists are still unsure about what exactly consciousness is, the University of Arizona’s Stuart Hameroff believes that it is merely information stored at a quantum level. British physicist Sir Roger Penrose agrees and believes he and his team have found evidence that protein-based microtubules – a structural component of human...

In Bioethics, Unlike Game of Thrones, Decapitation Doesn't Always Mean Death

A few years ago, I was working in the intensive-care unit when an elderly male, pale as chalk, was rushed into one of the empty rooms. He had recently been admitted to the hospital with a brain aneurysm so large that it was threatening to burst. But before he could get surgery, his heart stopped. After almost an hour of CPR failed, the man’s surgeon went to the waiting room to tell his family he didn’t make it. Fifteen minutes later, as I was managing a patient with a serious infection, a nurse came up to me and said that...
