A difficult question if there ever was one. When a person dies, only they truly know for sure what it is like. Those who have had near death experiences, often say that as they were passing away, they saw a white light in a long tunnel, and felt very at peace, and felt strong emotions of love and kindness emanating from the light. This has been replicated in experiments in recent years, using what is known as the ‘God Helmet’ in which the brain is bombarded by strong enough forces to cause strange hallucinations and emotions. Truly the only time we know what it is like to die, is when we pass on ourselves.
