But wait! A recent report from BBC (later picked up by numerous others) links high blood levels of CO2 to "near-death experiences."
Reasons previously suggested for the phenomenon include religion and drugs.So I can see why she feels it necessary to defend the compound. Her entire thought process is dominated by persistently high blood levels of CO2.
Those who have had near-death experiences report various encounters, including seeing a tunnel or bright light, a mystical entity, or looking down from the ceiling at the scene below in an "out of body" experience.
Others describe a simple but overwhelming feeling of peace and tranquility.
Previous research has shown that inhalation of carbon dioxide can induce hallucinatory experiences similar to those reported in near-death experiences.So there you go.
