The subjects of this series have temporarily died and come back to life. These survivors of death have had what are known as "Near Death Experiences (NDE)," a term coined by psychologist Dr. Raymond Moody in the 1970's. During a NDE people have strange and incredible experiences they have trouble putting into words. They later recall feelings of awe and peace that remain with them throughout their lives. These experiences are remembered to be very real -- as something that actually happened -- not a dream or cloudy memory.
