Website Near Death Experience Research Foundation (NDERF) has been collecting people’s experiences of the afterlife, and some give remarkably similar accounts. Being greeted by your loved ones on the ‘other side’ is a recurring theme on the website, giving hope to those who hope to one day be reunited with lost special people.

Without giving away how Virginie suffered her near death experience (NDE), she said: “I was advancing towards a white light, at the end of this Passing into or through a tunnel, which was very bright.
“My little brother Philippe, who died 12 years before, took me by the hand and was smiling to me while taking me in front of the light. A strong, but not nasty voice, asked me why I wanted to die.
“I answered that the absence of my little brother was too hard for me, and that my mother felt resentful towards me because of Philippe’s death.”
Another person, William C who was almost fatally injured in a car crash, gave a similar account, saying: “I looked in front of me and saw my deceased grandmother. She was standing just in front of the ‘White Light.’

“They seemed peaceful in pairs holding each other and swaying with the music. My grandmother delivered the choice to me. I could stay with her or go back to my life.
“She told me that if I stayed, everything would be OK. She said that if I went back to my body, it would be the most challenging experience I would ever endure.”
Lauren K, who was hit by a car, said: “I left my body and went into an aura of all white light! It was totally warm and Peaceful, pure Love emanating through me and around me.
Appearing on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast, the scientist argued particle physics have not found any evidence of the soul on the subatomic level.
He said: “If you want to suggest there’s something else that interacts with matter strongly, then I would say that it’s ruled out.
“I would go as far as to say it is ruled out by experiments.
“Or at least it is extremely subtle and you would have to jump through a lot of hoops to come up with a theory of some stuff that we wouldn’t have seen when we’ve observed how matter interacts.”
