No RIP for us BFSers

Postby Little Lost on March 22nd, 2014, 8:13 am

I read that it is common for people to develop widespread fasciculations after they are brain dead..... mmmmm does that mean there is a high chance we are all actually dead even though we have clean EMGs, clean clinicals and no weakness.... I am seriously begining to doubt my gp and neuro.....

Sorry no need for that awful joke but thought it would add a bit of atmosphere to my post.

I've read ongoing studies that indicate that clinically or "brain dead" people have had the most amazing conscious experiences and realizations, some of which are reported as veridical NDEs. I am seriously doubting what some materialistic scientists and philosophers are telling us about reality, our mind and its origins, and our true potential.

Cheers,
