peaking scientifically for a moment, many people who have had a near death experience will tell you that during their impending death, they were encompassed by a myriad of sensations, including being detached from their own body, accompanied by the feeling of being levitated away from their body. Their emotions ranged from being extremely fearful to totally serene and secure. Many describe a feeling of warmth while accepting the absolute dissolution, soon followed by the presence of an enticing bright and beautiful light, which many have interpreted as being a deity.  Often, they see family members or loved ones who have died calling out to them from within. These phenomena are usually encountered shortly after an individual has been clinically pronounced dead or otherwise very near death, hence the term near-death experience. Many NDE reports, however, originate from events that are not entirely life- threatening. With recent developments in cardiac resuscitation techniques, the number of claimed NDEs has dramatically increased over a number years all over the world. Many in the scientific community remain guarded about such experiences and believe that they are nothing more than hallucinatory. Yet many paranormal specialists and some mainstream scientists claim the evidence is mounting which points to an afterlife. According to a Gallup poll, approximately eight million Americans claim to have had a near-death experience, and many researchers believe that the number of near-death experiencers may be greatly underestimated, mainly because some individuals are presumably afraid or otherwise reluctant to talk about their experience. any scientists believe that a massive amount of Dimethylglyoxime (DMT) is released by the pineal gland into the brain prior to persons death gives them the experience often described in a near-death phenomenon, and is the explanation and root cause for it. New studies being conducted in the Netherlands now have objects painted onto the floors around operating tables in surgical theaters. Those who believe they have experienced an NDE during surgery are then interviewed to verify if they did indeed levitate from their bodies and look down upon the table to see themselves and if they are able to describe what was on the floor, as there would be no way they could have known that these symbols were ever on the floor in the first place, much less be able to  identify them. Many new studies of the NDE phenomena are being conducted all over the world in the fields of parapsychology, psychology, psychiatry, and hospital medicine.
