There were instances where people who were declared clinically dead and suddenly came back to life. Some of them were even kept in freezer vault at the morgue for three days before they returned to life.

If you are a seeker and want to know about some real near death experiences, here is a list of 15 experiences which will help you learn more about what happens when we die.

15. Plato


A Socratic dialogue written by Plato features a report claiming one of the earliest incidents of near death experience. Plato in his texts catalogued a near death experience more than two thousand years before science. The famous philosopher and mathematician wrote about a soldier named Er in conclusion to the “Republic” who was slain in battle.

According to Plato, even after ten days, Er’s body did not decompose, while the other corpses were in the state of decomposition. The body was later carried away home and on the twelfth day, when the body was placed on funeral pile, Er regained consciousness and returned to life. Plato wrote about the afterlife Er experienced and mentioned details about many planets and worlds no one else has ever witnessed.

14. Mellen-Thomas Benedict


In 1982, after suffering from terminal brain cancer, Benedict died. But after almost one and half hour, he came back to life.

Here’s everything he shared about this near death experience.

Soon after that, he was able to see everything around his body, including a house. He visited this house and revealed shocking facts.

“I could see every room in the house, I could see the top of the house, I could see around the house, I could see under the house,” said Benedict.

According to Benedict, God is exploring his self through all of its creations and God is on a never ending exploration.
