When you die 'you know you're dead because your brain keeps working', scientist claims

•, By Harvey Sullivan

Top medical experts have forever been at loggerheads over what happens when humans die, with anecdotal evidence of bright lights and flashes reported by people who have 'come back' being the cause of much debate.

However, a new study suggests your consciousness carries on functioning after your heart stops beating and your body movements fail.

This means you are essentially 'trapped' inside your dead body with your brain still working, if only for a short time.

Survivors of cardiac arrest were aware of what was going on around them while they were 'dead' before being 'brought back to life', the study revealed.

More surprising still, there is evidence to suggest the deceased may even hear themselves being pronounced dead by doctors.

I call BS on this,...and I can,...because I have been dead. I had a cardiac fibrilation,...similar to a heart attack but different,...wherein my heart stopped and I lost consciousness. I was dead. Fortunately, I had implanted in me, for just such an eventuality, a pacemaker/defibrilator that sensed my heart had stopped and shocked me back. I never felt a thing, and was not entirely sure I had passed out. I had simply gone black. Nothingness. I was only aware of what occurred 3 weeks later at my scheduled cardiologist appointment, when they did their routine diagnostic interogation of my implant to verify everything was ok. The database listed what had occurred. All I knew is that I was sitting on the couch and suddenly felt very tired and my vision dimmed. At an unknown time later, I was awake again, not knowing I had been clinically dead.
