AWARE II – preliminary results

Hi

Here are the AWARE II preliminary results by Dr. Sam Parnia and they are interesting:

Quote:
Results: Among 465 in-hospital CA lasting >5 min, 44 (9%) survived and 21 were interviewed. Of these, 4 (19%) reported explicit memories, including (internal) cognitive processes such as feeling peace, joy, and a perception of seeing relatives, while other memories were suggestive of (external) awareness e.g. hearing people talking, drugs given. One of 19 correctly recalled the audio stimuli given during CPR, but none identified the visual test. In this limited sample, there were no signs of implicit learning. We then compared these to 22 self-reported memories from a registry of CA survivors, Additional themes emerged as follows: 1) a sense of joy and peace (95%), perception of a light (86%), a tunnel (59%), a review and judgment of major life events including a person’s own actions and intentions (54%), and an overall feeling of positive transformation after the event (95%).

No one saw the images. I have even blacked out the place where it is written but one could hear during the process and even identified a audio stimuli a thing that skeptics were saying that during CA you can hear. So the only conclusion here which can be drawn is that a person during CA can hear which would explain NDEs a lot because when you can hear during a operation and your brain is not completely dead that you can create a scenario.

Interesting study.

Privatize the profits and socialize the losses. It's the American way. That's how Mnuchin got rich. Worse, he did it on the backs of elderly people who had been conned into reverse mortgages. Mnuchin paid zero, took on the debt then taxpayers bailed him out.
