For those who instantly understand what this is about, I am not trying be flippant about the NDE (Near Death Experience) matter. But when I listened to a recent episode of Skeptiko about NDE the opposite sprung to mind. What if we are having a Near Life Experience? What if our base line is consciousness and life is a form of a conscious awareness in a particular realm we call "life"?
There probably are more realms or states, dream-state comes to mind.
Just a thought
