1 in 10 persons have near-death experiences and describe extraordinary details. 

Researchers from the University of Copenhagen asked 1,034 people from 35 countries if they’ve ever had a near death experience. 10% were found to have a near death experience and were asked to detail their experience. 

87% reported abnormal time perception, in that they perceived time as moving much faster or slower than it really was. Additionally, 65% reported racing thoughts that felt overwhelming, and 63% reported exceptionally vivid senses. 

Participants also described experiences of feeling at total peace, standing in a dark tunnel, and seeing their life flash before them. 

Researchers are now exploring a possible link between near death experiences and REM sleep, which might be the cause of these extraordinary experiences.
