UNITED KINGDOM (Excelsior) – The word "I saw the light at the end of the tunnel, we know, but we can ask ourselves, is there really something after death? What is the meaning of light that you say you see?
A group of UK scientists published an article pointing out that this light is a "deep psychological event with mystical elements and its origin is tension in a moment that can be caused by physical or emotional pain, even provoked by heart attacks or injuries in cerebral cortex.
Many people said they had experienced the famous "light at the end of the tunnel, commenting that they are accompanied by feelings of satisfaction, psychological separation from the body, rapid movements in the long and dark tunnel, and access to bright light," the scientists say.
Neil Dagnall and Ken Drinkwater, a commentary to The Conversation magazine, that experience may change according to the religious belief of a person, culture or age.
HOW IS THE TENEL
Experts believe that coming to the beginning of this feeling can be complicated due to the various personal convictions of those experiencing them.
For many years, science has given many events before death, a "moribund brain" hypothesis that the experience of near death causes hallucinations by brain activity where the cells begin to die, one of the most commented.
