Explorer | Moment of Death | National Geographic Channel

Last night I watched a show on the National Geographic Channel that was by far one of the most fascinating examinations of the mysteries behind death itself. Probably the most interesting aspect of the show is the way they examined the aspects of mortality that cannot be explained in a scientific hypothesis, particularly the testimonies of people who have out-of-body experiences during their coma/death/near-death episodes.

Dr. Lance Becker of the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania is trying to help cardiac arrest patients cheat death by using hypothermia, or cooling of the body, to slow down the process of cell death.

Explorer | Moment of Death | National Geographic Channel
Explorer opens your eyes to riveting, untold adventures with host Lisa Ling.

One might say morbidly fascinating?
