New article from Sam Parnia

Here is the new article of Dr. Sam Parnia:

He claims the old stuff that NDEs are real-death experiences:

Why is the term “near-death” experience inaccurate?
The problem with this term is that it is inconsistent with what people actually experience. It is undefined and imprecise. If I said ‘an airplane was involved in a near-miss incident,’ what does that mean? Did you have another plane come in within an inch of another plane, or were they a mile away? The term is ill-defined, and, it doesn't take into consideration the fact that a lot of people have biologically died and returned.

There is more stuff like this. The whole article is more like a god in the gasp. We cannot explain these experiences fully then its a soul. We cannot explain consciousness fully then its a soul. The same old.

I love the fact that even when Sam Parnia has found out that people experience seizure like brain activity during Cardiac Arrest he reverts to the same old god in the gasp:

He casually stated that 10% of the patients who had a CA experienced seizure or seizure like EEG activity before ROSC. This is of course a potentially massive finding and contradicts much of what has been said before about NDEs.
