Some scientists regard near death experiences as a hallucination of the brain. The concept of your consciousness surviving after your brain and body is long gone, sounds pretty bizarre in a scientific perspective.

But meet Pam Reynolds. She had to get surgery for an aneurysm in her brain stem. 

It was a daring operation since it was such a large aneurysm. They chilled her body and drained the blood from her brain. 

When the operation began, the surgeons taped shut Reynolds’ eyes and put molded speakers in her ears.

Regardless, if somehow magically a secret hidden part of her brain was still active, she shouldn’t have been able to see or hear anything.

But yet what she reported back was amazing and very precise. 

HER NEAR DEATH EXPERIENCE

She says she found herself looking down at the operating table. She says she could see 20 people around the table and hear what sounded like a dentist’s drill. She looked at the instrument in the surgeon’s hand.

"It was an odd-looking thing," she says. "It looked like the handle on my electric toothbrush."

Reynolds observed the Midas Rex bone saw the surgeons used to cut open her head, the drill bits, and the case, which looked like the one where her father kept his socket wrenches. Then she noticed a surgeon at her left groin.

"I heard a female voice say, ‘Her arteries are too small.’ And Dr. Spetzler — I think it was him — said, ‘Use the other side,’ " Reynolds says.

Soon after, the surgeons began to lower her body temperature to 60 degrees. It was about that time that Reynolds believes she noticed a tunnel and bright light. She eventually flat-lined completely, and the surgeons drained the blood out of her head.

During her near-death experience, she says she chatted with her dead grandmother and uncle, who escorted her back to the operating room. She says as they looked down on her body, she could hear the Eagles’ song “Hotel California” playing in the operating room as the doctors restarted her heart. She says her body looked like a train wreck, and she said she didn’t want to return.

"My uncle pushed me," she says, laughing. "And when I hit the body, the line in the song was, ‘You can check out anytime you like, but you can never leave.’

MATCHING THE RECORDS

Afterwards, Reynolds assumed she had been hallucinating. But a year later, she mentioned the details to her neurosurgeon. Robert Spetzler says her account matched his memory.

"From a scientific perspective," he says, "I have absolutely no explanation about how it could have happened."

Spetzler did not check out all the details, but Michael Sabom did. Sabom is a cardiologist in Atlanta who was researching near-death experiences.

According to the records, there were 20 doctors in the room. There was a conversation about the veins in her left leg. She was defibrillated. They were playing “Hotel California.” How about that bone saw? Sabom got a photo from the manufacturer — and it does look like an electric toothbrush.

How, Sabom wonders, could she know these things?

HOW COULD SHE KNOW?

Pam Reynold’s case is a special one. It’s a report of veridical NDE, where someone reported information they shouldn’t have been able to obtain. Clearly it was NOT a result of a hallucination. 

But if you are still skeptical. I advise you to read Raymond’s Moody Life After Life

He documents many cases similar to Pam Reynold’s. Her case is interesting but not unique. There are several others like it.

MORE CASES OF NEAR DEATH EXPERIENCES

This is the most important thing I’ve found on Tumblr.

You know the text post that says “It frustrates me that only dead people know what it’s like to be dead.”

Well near death experiences kinda bring a little glimmer of hope that it’s gonna be okay.

David Gilson is a French Artist. In 2007, over being excited for Disney’s Black Princess, he created a plethora of wonderful artwork in anticipation. 

Many of them created during earliest production in which the film was then titled The Frog Princess and the heroine was named Maddy the chambermaid. These works since have been passed around as if they were conceptual artwork during production. In part for being well done and existing a year prior to any real art released to the press and public. 

As The Princess and The Frog hops towards five years since theatrical release, it it time to identify these great works of art as they are, fan art.

The right column showcases the beautiful pieces by Disney Artists. David Gilson’s fan artwork is used often when talking about natural hair for Tiana. Lorelay Bové, Sue Nichols, Chris Appelhans, Armand Baltazar and Kevin Gollaher have drawn natural hair in their concept art and unfortunately that aspect did not make it to realization.

David was contracted by Disney Publishing and Disney Consumer Products for Tangled in 2010. Hey, who knows maybe all the attention to his Tiana art landed him the job. We wish him the best in all his artistic endeavors!

I love this toss so much. And it’s actually really easy to do.
You lay the silk flat on the ground and put the (in this case paper/glitter) on the silk near the pole. Then roll it up until it’s all covered by the rolled part.
When you toss the silk will unroll and release what you put in it at the peak of the toss.

wat

things go in flag, roll flag like burrito, clench tight until you toss, burrito goes poof, things rain down, pretty

thanks science side of tumblr
