Theories of NDE include spiritual theories which presume that consciousness has an independent existence with a belief in after life. Blackmore described that sometimes mind can acquire a mental model of reality assumed upon imagery and memory instead of sensory impressions. A mental state that may be intrinsically quite different from a veridical perception might come to be mistaken for so, and hence gets the status of a hallucination. However, 'mathematical models' of 'parallel universe' in quantum physics mimic 'experiences' of these patients
Larger research may make it easier to communicate about personal recollections during this important period. The explanation could range from psychological to neurophysiological mechanisms, with the cultural background or ethos and age groups such as children . Whether they are just hallucinations or proof of an afterlife will be debated until more information becomes available.

A 30 year postgraduate, Hindu, married woman with a 5 month old baby was brought to emergency in Glasgow. She was operated for acute subdural hematoma of left side. During this period of unconsciousness she described that she was in a brilliant light in which she floated. She then went to 'heaven' where there were a pantheon of Gods with 'hierarchy' There was the trinity of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva but even they were in hierarchy 'junior' to 'Om' She has slowly forgotten most of her description but her belief has persisted.
Up from the earth’s centre through the seventh gate I rose, and on the throne of Saturn sate, And many Knots unravel’d by the road; But not the knot of human death and fate
