  1. @tiff There is a very strong difference in brain activity between general anesthetics and comas. You know how when you wake up in the morning or from a nap you can sense the time has passed? This is because the brain's perception of time comes from it's ability to process information and form memories, something that the brain is made unable to do when under anesthetics but still semi functional when in a coma, and very functional while in most stages of sleep. In my personal experience from drowning in resort pool on vacation I can say a few things about OBE/NDEs. First, drowning is an awful terrible and slow way to die (I guess that's off topic) Any who, we know, and can prove, that when people are having near death experiences that they are, in fact, alive. More importantly, we know that the brain can actively form memories in these states. Knowing this, we can't honestly use them as examples of what ACTUAL potentially conscienceless death would be like.
