[] On this point, Michael Sabom responded: "The question here is not when Reynolds's NDE , but when it . Reynolds described her NDE as an uninterrupted, continuous experience" (Sabom, "Commentary" 258). Similarly, in his immediately preceding commentary, Charles Tart wrote that although Pam's veridical perceptions occurred well before standstill, her description "implied quite clearly that her NDE went on all through the standstill, to and beyond the reinfusion of warmed blood" (Tart, "Commentary" 252). He consequently argued that denying Pam's timeframe "ignores experiential evidence" (253).

Recall from that is best used for the following purposes:

Choose an accomplishment you have achieved in your life. The important moment could be in sports, schooling, or extracurricular activities. On your own sheet of paper, list the steps you took to reach your goal. Try to be as specific as possible with the steps you took. Pay attention to using transition words to focus your writing.

But Fox has revealed pre-Moody NDEs from the Religious Experience Research Centre (RERC) archives, which contain over 6000 reports of religious experiences from 1925 to present (Fox 243-44). For instance, RERC account 2733 was written in August 1971 (before Moody had even coined the term 'near-death experience') and refers to traveling down a long, whirling black tunnel toward a bright light at the end (Fox 118). At the end of the tunnel the woman reported floating in a warm golden mist in bliss and faces coming out of the mist, smiling, then fading away. The experience ended with 'waking up' being slapped by a doctor hard on both sides of the face. (This NDE had occurred just after giving birth; no OBE was reported).

Keep in mind that chronological order is most appropriate for the following purposes:

Though subjects are typically sitting or standing during autoscopy and heautoscopy, OBEs predominantly occur when subjects are laying on their backs (e.g., in sleep or general anesthesia). Accordingly, Bünning and Blanke suggest that "OBEs are facilitated by the somato-sensory coding of a supine body position" (Bünning and Blanke 337).

If the mediator of out-of-body vision is an element that functions independently of the body, I find no reason why it should position itself only above the body; it seems reasonable to expect instances of observation of oneself from other positions to be no less frequent. For example, in the case of a person undergoing an OBE when sitting or standing or falling from a height, self-observation is possible from the front at eye-level or below it (Krishnan 23).

I left my body and went walking towards a very bright white light which was at the end of a long tunnel. At the same time I could see three figures standing at the end of the bed and I kept wishing they would go away so that I could go to the light, which to me was lovely and warm. Just as I neared the light I felt a stab in my thigh (Fenwick and Fenwick 91).

V. Krishnan noted that it is difficult to reconcile the fact that OBErs "nearly always" find themselves looking down on the body from above with the hypothesis that something literally leaves the body during spontaneous OBEs and NDEs:
