Just the other night I saw a segment on some news show which dealt with
near death experiences. They talked to some scienctists which proposed a
location in the brain which "caused" these experiences, etc...
But just as I was about to change the channel, on came a YALE
Surgeon who purported that "the brain has evolved over time to create
these experiences so that humans would have an easier time coping with
death." !! Now thats a meme!
