Researchers at the University of Michigan (UoM) have discovered that the brain does remain conscious after the heart stops beating, which correlates with 20% of persons who have had a near-death experience (NDE).
Elizabeth Taylor claimed to have had an NDE.
Taylor said: “I was pronounced dead once and actually saw the light. I find it very hard to talk about, actually, because it sounds so corny. It happened in the late ’50s, and I saw Mike (Todd, Taylor’s third husband, who was killed in a plane crash in 1958). When I came to, there were about 11 people in the room. I’d been gone for about five minutes – they had given me up for dead and put my death notice on the wall. I shared this with the people that were in the room next to me. Then after that I told another group of friends, and I thought, ‘Wow, this sounds really screwy. I think I’d better keep quiet about this.’”
