As soon as Gary had the accident, he said he saw Jesus Christ and many of his loved ones watching and waiting for him to come to the afterlife.
Gary wrote on the Near Death Experience Research Foundation: “I felt like I wasn’t in my body. I was in blackness but with hundreds of sparkly lights.
“I was a little scared because I could see my hunched-up body and knew that I’d passed over.
“The colours were so vivid! In front of me was a medium-sized stream with a white bridge over it. Jesus was standing on the other side of the bridge.
“There was a huge, sunlit object shining down on his left side. But it didn’t hurt me to look at it.
“I heard in my head, Jesus asking me, ‘Gary, would you like to stay for eternal peace and happiness or go back?’ I thought, ‘I’d like to go back.'”
“That premise has served science and its handmaiden, technology, extremely well over the past few centuries. Unless there is extraordinary, compelling, objective evidence to the contrary, I see no reason to abandon this assumption.
“Modern death requires irreversible loss of brain function. When the brain is starved of blood flow (ischemia) and oxygen (anoxia), the patient faints in a fraction of a minute and his or her electroencephalogram, or EEG, becomes isoelectric—in other words, flat.
“This implies that large-scale, spatially distributed electrical activity within the cortex, the outermost layer of the brain, has broken down.”
