In Berlin, A team of psychologists and medical doctors in co-operation with the Technische Universität of Berlin, made an announcement this morning that they had proven through medical experiments, the existence of some form of life after death. This incredible discovery is based on the conclusions of a study using a new type of medically supervised near-death experiences that allow patients to be clinically dead for almost 20 minutes before being brought back to life.
The experiment was repeated on 944 volunteers over that last four years. It requires a complex mixture of drugs including epinephrine and dimethyltryptamine, supposed to let the body to survive the state of clinical death and the reanimation process without damage. The body of the subject was then put into a temporary form of coma with the help of a mixture of other drugs which had to be filtered by ozone from his blood during the reanimation process 18 minutes later.
The experience was only recently made longer by the development of a new cardiopulmonary recitation (CPR) machine called the Auto Pulse. This type of equipment has already been used over the last few years, to reanimate people who had been dead for somewhere between 40 minutes to an hour.
The team which was led by Dr. Berthold Ackermann, observed the operations and collected the testimonies of the subjects. Although there are some slight variations from one individual to another, all of the subjects have some memories of their period of clinical death. And a vast majority of them described some very similar sensations.
The mostly common memories among the specimens include a feeling of detachment from the body, feelings of levitation, total serenity, security, warmth, the experience of absolute dissolution, and the presence of an overwhelming light.
The scientists say that they are sure that many of their conclusions could shock a lot of people. For example, the fact that the religious beliefs of the various subjects seems to have no effect at all, on the sensations and experiences that they described at the end of the experiment. Indeed, the volunteers counted in their ranks some members are a variety of Christian churches, Muslims, Jews, Hindus and atheists.
“I know our results could disturb the beliefs of many people” says Mr. Ackermann. “But in a way, we have just answered one of the greatest questions in the history of mankind, so I hope these people will be able to forgive us. Yes, there is life after death and it looks like this applies to everyone.”
