    I don't really know if it does or not.

    But, I did have experience with a couple ghosts, myself and several others had the experience over the course of a few years.

    Which of course is often ridiculed right out of hand.

    And, if one believes in them, then one would probably be inclined to believe the soul goes on...

    But what I find most compelling, is not whether the person was "officially dead" by some metric, but the accounts of people witnessing events while still on the operating table, and like I said, sometimes events in another room, in the next county, wherever.

    Personal conversations between the doctor and nurses, the doctor and the family...

    Things they couldn't have done if the were perfectly healthy.

    Thx

    Oh, there have also been instances of surgery patients being aware while supposedly unconscious under general anesthesia. The brain is capable of amazing things -- while it's alive.

    What if your brain isn't functioning before you die?

    Asking for a friend.

    Not really a friend.

    Asking for the president.

    Yes, I imagine that the subconscious mind is capable of many things, maybe hearing a convo in another room.

    But then there are accounts of someone seeing "Grandpa" who died before they were born, things like that are physically impossible...

    Thx

    If you "came back" you were prolly never dead in the first place.

    Yep. That's what people say. Not all doctors and medical professionals agree on that however.

    Ultimately, death is not coming back?
