    There is nothing to fear, my dear Storybud68. No point worrying over something that you cannot control. I died in 2006 and spent a week in the afterlife, while life-supporting machines kept my body alive in an ICU. Had the time of my life, can't wait to return to the beautiful realm that I love so dearly once again.

    That's very intriguing, Malcolm. Can you remember it all quite clearly?

    Absolutely. Induced coma due to a serious underlying illness. Gradual transition into the afterlife and back again, no head trauma or brain swelling so I remember most if not all of it.

    Thank you for posting, Malcolm, and NDEs really are wonderful! It is important to note, however, that those that we used to think were dead and even such experts as Dr. Raymond Moody (the man who wrote Life After Life and coined the term near-death experience) tell us consistently that death is always a one-way trip. Those who have extensive NDEs are traveling in the astral realms, many of which mimic the genuine afterlife areas and where we typically meet with loved ones and guides while our bodies sleep. Many extensive NDEs include a moment when the experiencer is told that he has come to a barrier, and if he continues he will be dead and won't be able to return to life; and that is reportedly a genuine barrier. Just want to clarify, since NDEs and natural deaths are so entirely different in process that unless we keep making this clear we can confuse readers here.

    I understand the point you're making, and your account is interesting, but to define 'corporeal death' there has to be the element of finality of incarnate life. Based on what you've said your animating spirit - the 'real you' so to speak - was spending time away 'on holiday' while your physical body was recovering, supported by machines in the intensive care unit of the hospital.

    Using the parameter that death is irreversible, you spent a week away from life in this world while your physical body was being supported. Had you died, had the so-called silver cord become severed, you wouldn't be here now and talking about it. ;)

    You could call it a near-death-experience albeit a protracted one.
