Has the first evidence of life after death been found?
In the largest study ever done on the sort of thing researchers at the university of southhampton examined 2,000 cases from patients who would suffered from cardiac arrest before they had been successfully brought back to life.
The strange thing they found was that during the moments in time when the brain had absolutely no measurable activity.... what is known as clinically dead....as much as 40% of the cases had recalled experiencing some sort of awareness during that period of time.

You can see the questions they asked the participants here. The number next to each question represents the amount of people whom said yes out of 101.
As you can see from these questions a large amount of people experienced having a feeling of peace or pleasantness during this period of time, along with many others having impression that things were happening faster or slower.
Remember that this is during a period of time when they had no brain activity and and should be completely dead before being resuscitated.
This really raises some questions as to what life after death is or what is actually happening right when someone dies and what they would experience.
It's a landmark study, especially one that's grounded in some solid science about the afterlife, but it seems to only raise more questions than it answers.
Will science one day figure out what happens when we die? Maybe the mystery of the afterlife will one day no longer be as much of a mystery.
