Why Time Stops at Near Death

Why Time Stops at Near Death
During a near-death experience people have a sense of timelessness.

Quote:Our study complements the previous investigations by Bruce Greyson showing an extremely distorted subjective time in a majority of people who had an NDE. What may cause the radical change in subjective time during NDEs is still a completely open question. The label ‘feeling of timelessness’ is reported by people experiencing altered states of consciousness as induced through very different means such as during meditation or after ingesting hallucinogenic drugs. It is part of an overall experiential narrative of becoming one with the surrounding, the sense of a collapse of the past and future into an eternal presence, or the notion that time is nonexistent. In studying meditation or drug effects, one can further investigate how during extreme states of consciousness the feeling of ‘timelessness’ can arise. We then will also understand better what happens during NDEs.

Thanks, Nins, for the info. I warmly related to this "becoming one with the surrounding, the sense of a collapse of the past and future into an eternal presence, or the notion that time is nonexistent.
