I personally believe our memory involves more than our brain+body. But we know that we process memories in our brain, and even as a layman I can confidently say the muscle-memory includes facts, pictures, etc..I must admit that neurology isn't something I'm that familiar with. But am I correct in saying that memories haven't been isolated to a particular part of the brain?
I'm trying to tread carefully here, but I had the impression that it's just an assumption that to have a memory depends on the brain
If we speculate on the idea of memory being stored independent/outside the brain+body, then the brain must to some extent be a processor/tuner/transceiver. My point in this exercise is to take this model and imagine exactly when the brain first processes the NDE. It's my assumption that this is important.
Does the whole NDE get processed during revival? or does it download in piece by piece as the person "tunes in" or thinks about it? This seems to me like it should be extremely important because it's probably measurable, but I rarely hear the researchers mention it.
This stuff make it seem definite that at least some memory is stored independent/outside the brain+body. But I'll bet we have to dig in to the the When-&-What-Physical if we ever want help from the full-blown materialists.Weird though, that the most common reported description of NDEs is (to paraphrase):
"more real than real"...
That pattern is so overwhelming. And as reported, the NDEs are typically profoundly life-altering, and the memory of the NDE stays fresh in the memory, even decades later...
I think these are extremely important data points.
In those regards, we can then compare them with reported UFO encounters etc.
Furthermore, Cherylee Black said something important in that regard. Does anyone remember? She compared the FRESH memories of her NDEs to some other unusual phenomena that DIDN'T stay in her memory. She said she'd even forgotten about many of those occurrences until she read it in her diary years later
