It’s one of the most mysterious — yet divisive — questions facing mankind: What happens after we die? For centuries, stories of those who suffered clinical death and came back to life with memories of other-worldly encounters were either ignored, suppressed, or dismissed by scientists as hallucinations. But the increasing use of cardiopulmonary resuscitation, backed by a body of worldwide research, is lending scientific heft to a subject once thought untouchable. Kojo explores the stories and science behind post-death experiences, and finds out how these encounters change both patients and doctors.
