Really?!?! Granted, I have never had a near death experience, but I am certain that there is a drug on the streets called "dmt", which is a synthetic derivative of the adrenaline that gets shot to your brain just before you die. I have heard of the hallucinations that this drug creates and it sounds very similar to the surreal descriptions she gave in her NDE. Seeing as the subconscious has ways of playing tricks on our conscious, wouldn't it be possible that the sense of smell is one of the oldest tricks our subconscious knows? I have epilepsy and one of the "auras" I have is that I end up smelling mothballs, sure enough, as soon as there is that scent I do everything to prepare for a seizure. Medically speaking people have the seizure before the physical convulsions take over the body. Simply a misfiring of neurons in the brain. Now when your body shuts down and your brain is all you have working for you, what neurons are fired there? How long can a brain outlast a resting heart? More than anything, I wonder, does heaven smell like chocolate chip cookies or a men's locker room? I would like to have a deeper discussion about NDE's with anyone if they would be interested.
