Experiencing Death or Am I Really Dead?

I have an experience. I do not know if I really died at the hospital or I am alive at that day. I did not experience 'out of the body' nor I did not see 'lights', 'devil' and 'angels'. I just saw black. It is like a 'battery' or a 'flaslight' which you could switch off and on. I keep searching on the internet about the experience I had from the hospital, but I could not find any. I even search 'near death experience' and 'out of the body experience', but all I read was about a 'light'. From their testimonies, they saw a 'light' -- a 'bright light' and some say they were floating in the air then, I have also read that they were the same as mine. On my experience, it took only one second before I saw myself that I was still on the hospital. This experience of mine was the same to the experience of atheist that I read on the internet, but not all of them. Some atheist that I read on forums where they telling their experiences to other forumers. I am a Christian, but I just saw black and that is all. I just saw a pure black. It feels like a 'switch off battery' or a 'switch off light' from your room. Anyone? Do you know the meaning of this? I do not understand the meaning of 'black'.

It sounds to me like you were either unconscious or in a coma. Either way, I'm glad you are all right now.

I'd like to know more of what you were going through, to really get an idea of it... Were you in panic? Breathing hard and fast when the light went out? You can get that when you are in extreme situations... I had that nearly happen to me when I was biking really fast down a big hill, for less then a second, I seemed to blank out. Luckily, I didn't fall over or anything, but it was a blanking experience. There's medical studies that can tell you just what was happening to you.

Relax,the answers weren't given to you because you are meant to decide then choose to discover for yourself rather than wait for someone else to supply the answers for you. Maybe it's time to stand on your own two feet. You are capable.

Maybe there is no meaning and you're just trying to ascribe a meaning to a pyschological phenomenon which occurred in your mind :( Sorry. .
