Has he ever had his entire life reviewed so that he re-experienced every event instantaneously but yet so clearly that he noticed many things surrounding each life event that he had missed at the time, including feeling what others around him had felt at the time ???
That is what many NDErs report. The 'life review' is one of the most commonly reported aspects of NDEs.
I dunno about that.
One time, in my early 20s, I was driving a Le Car (no comments, my Starter HusbandTM
None of the doors worked from the inside anymore. If you wanted to get out you had to manually roll down the windows, reach through and open from the outside.
Oh, it was a manual transmission.
One morning on my way to work, I had an NDE where I had my ENTIRE life flash before me, in complete clarity and detail, though it lasted only seconds.
It was mid-fall, so the morning was chilly. Which meant my car was not properly warmed-up as I approached a railroad crossing. The crossing had an incline UP to the tracks, and an incline on the other side down from the tracks.
Just as my car's tires came in contact with the train tracks, the woman in front of me suddenly put on her brakes.
For. No. Fucking. Reason. Whatsoever.
I tried to brake quickly and in doing so my car died. Stalled right there on the tracks.
I tried to start it, but it was too cold and wouldn't turn over.
At JUST that moment, the RR crossing bars come down and lights and warning signals go off.
My car is now trapped inside the barriers, on the tracks.
I looked to my left and could see the train's lights. It was approaching fairly rapidly.
I paniked and tried to open the door to get out.
FAWK! The windows won't roll down!
I grab at the keys and keep trying to start it.
I look up again and in that instant, my entire life flashed before me as I was staring at the train's headlight getting closer and closer. I saw myself at age 3 eating merangue shells that my mom had just pulled out of the oven -- I saw myself stuck in a tree on the back of my farm -- I saw myself getting married, and everything in between. My NDE ended with me saying out loud to myself, "I hope my life insurance is paid up."
About that same time, the guy behind me is yelling at me to get out of the car.
He gets out of his and starts running towards me.
In my panic, I try desperately to pop the clutch if for no reason than to have the car jerk forward and give me a chance.
It worked. The car jerked forward and rolled down the incline at the very second the train passed behind me. It was so close, my car was shaking like it was caught in a tornado.
It was all quite clear and quite memorable. The mind is an amazing thing. I didn't even have to be unconscious for my NDE.
