Tunnels.

When you were born, you went thru a tunnel (your mother) into the light. Near death experience says when you die, you move through a tunnel that has a peaceful light at the end. Are tunnels what it is all about?

  • Prehistoric people liked tunnels too, for more reasons than I have time to write about.
    Some monuments, passage tombs and tunnels were built at an angle so the sun would shine directly into them on certain days, like the solstice/equinox. For prehistoric people that light at the end of tunnel symbolised the end of the harshness of winter and that warmth and spring would soon be on the way, bringing the growth of plants and baby animals. So pretty much, the light at the end of the tunnel literally meant life, a new beginning. Just one example.

      • You are about to enter another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind. A journey into a wondrous land of imagination. Next stop, the Twilight Zone!

  • That's a strange coincidence, I was reading about this literally just today.

    Carl Sagan actually had that idea that the tunnel, with a light at the end of it, that you see when you die is a reliving of being born. But then it went on to say it's actually probably just decreased blood flow to the brain and eyes that causes it.

    A guy called Edward Lambert conducted experiments on the effects of high g forces on military pilots for the US Air Force. He put them in an ultracentrifuge that he could control the speed of, that spun them around really fast until they passed out. But by keeping the speed at an exact rate, so that the pilots were on the threshold of passing out but not actually going quite fast enough to do so, he found that the blood flow to the pilots' eyes would decrease so that they would lose their peripheral vision and have tunnel vision. And so they reckon that this is the same reason you see a tunnel during a near death experience.

  • When you die a powerful substance may be entering your bloodstream called DMT.

      The article says it makes you see fairies. I don't believe in fairies although I did have an uncle no one was sure about.
