The cycle of life is a universal human experience that every person follows: we are conceived and enter the world from a mother’s womb, live a life, and eventually die. Every living and breathing person is aware that they will one day pass away, but there still remain so many unanswered questions about death.
What does it feel like to die? What does the afterlife look like, and where do our souls go? While there are some things that we may never find out till it’s our turn to pass,, science has revealed a brand new discovery about death.
The Mind Versus The Body
Just like philosophers have been studying the meaning and truth of life since the beginning of time, scientists have been hard at work attempting to discover insight on death. Recently, research has revealed the breakthrough fact that when we die, our brains are aware of what’s going on.
The mind and the body are two entities that work together but exist separately. By studying and observing patients undergoing the process of death, doctors have begun to understand that even when the body is failing and deteriorating, our brain will still actively work for some time following our death.
