    I thought it sort of 'weird' that Leslie Kean would have input in this series. It still puzzles me as to the hard reality of the experience because the people telling the story always 'come back'. I think in the neuroscientist story Wind posted earlier the principle guy might have posed and answered that question but I can't remember for sure.

    NDEs have provided many valuable perspectives lately. I find them both inspiring and effective as regards getting out of the daily grind state of mind. And as regards certain kinds of priorities.

    He left his body before impact. It was likely very relaxed like when a very drunk person comes out of a serious accident unscathed. (not to dismiss any kind of miraculous dynamic).

    He connected with the beauty of nature and felt the bliss which seems to be inherent in the consciousness of creation. If I recall correctly, the Buddha found the bliss of creation by watching ants.

    That's quite the experience he had. I found myself riveted by his story, and although what happened with him is far more in depth and scope, I found myself nodding to it at times because I've had similar experiences but no out of body.

    From slipping off the edge of a 40' cliff with jagged boulders below, being unbuckled in the back of a car that rolled for 210', or in a freefall emergency while skydiving, in each there was a common thread just as the guy in the video describes: Each time I knew I was experiencing my last few seconds of life, it's gonna happen, and here it is. I felt very serene and okay about it, there was no more emotion attached to it than watching the ending of an average movie. Like "oh, so that's how it ends".

    - On the way down the side of the cliff, my only thought was "I hope it doesn't hurt too much before things go black".

    - While tumbling around the back of the car like popcorn popping, my thought was "next time the roof of the car bounces off the pavement it's gonna crush me, and that's gonna be all she wrote".

    - While plummeting towards earth at 120 mph, my thought was somewhat humorous in "you picked one hell of a way to end this one".



    Somehow I just walked away from each of those, shaking my head at myself that I was still here.

    I of course can't speak for everyone, but from my experience, at our moment of death there's no fear, no regrets, no none of that. It's a totally natural event, no worse than laying down to go to sleep at night.
    The unexamined life is not worth living.
