Near Death Experience & Special Relativity

Jack H. Hiller


In near death experience, a common feature found was an observation that everything perceived from the out of body state, such as other people, appeared to be made of light. Special Relativity established that time for any physical object slows, with respect to any given reference frame, as the object's speed increases, and at light speed, as a limit, time stops. It is generally thought that when time stops, no activity or change would be possible for any object traveling at light speed, such as a photon. The analysis presented here demonstrates that change is possible when time has stopped by posing alternate reference frames for an object.
