Not in this case. The lady accurately reported what was going on when she was physically dead by all available scientific measurements.
She wan't dead by the scientific measure of the brain tissues being dead.... It was "shut down" for the most part, but it was not "dead".And, there is no reason to think she could not be recording sights and sounds into the memory storage portion of her brain....even with the consciousness turned off.I will turn this around. I saw a story on Discovery Channel of a guy that was sevearly brain damaged n a car crash.... he was listed as brain damaged to the point where a meaningful recovery was not possible. Like the veg in Florida that caused so much trouble a couple years ago. Well, this veg later regained the ability to speak.... So, the show was called "the man that slept for 16 years" or some such. He seems to be fully conscious. He recognizes some people and places..... He can carry on a conversation.BUT, his problem is that he is incapable of recordning any new memories. zip, zilch, nada. To him, it is 1984... You can tell him the current date, then 10 seconds later, ask him the date... He'll tell you 1984. He recognizes his mom, but not his daughter... Who is now in her 20s instead of diapers. In fact, he is constantly coming onto his daughter because he doesn't know, and can't be taught that it is her.In short, it is the mirror image of the NDE. In an NDE, consciousness is shut down, but memories are still recorded. In this case, he's conscious, but not able to record memories.So, if the "soul"... consciousness outsie the body... is the ability to record memories when not conscious, is this guy "soul-dead"? His body is alive, but his soul is dead?Well, the CT scans just show dead and wilted gooo where his short-term memory portion of his brain is supposed to be. And, short-term memory are the patterns used to build long-term... So, while he has consciousness and long-term memories, he can't create new memories.The brain works all funny like this.....So, I don't find it hard to believe that the memory portion of the brain could be recording short-term memories, then those short-term memories moved off to long-term, even when the consciousness is "shut down".
