German Scientists at Prestigious University Prove There is Life After Death

I wouldn't normally post stories like this, but since it came from what appears to be a very reliable source, I'm making an exception. Technische Universität of Berlin, or Berlin Technical University was founded in 1879 and has produced no less than 10 Nobel Prize winners.

None of the major news networks are reporting it, but Sunnewsonline, IndiaToday, and dozens of lesser sites. I can't swear to it's integrity, but I'm making it available anyway. So treat it with skepticism until there is more verification or debunking.
Near-death experiences have been hypothesized in various medical journals
in the past, as having the characteristics of hallucinations, but Dr Ackermann
and his team, on the contrary, consider them as evidence for the existence
of the afterlife and of a form of dualism between mind and body.
Berlin| A team of psychologists and medical doctors associated with the Technische Universität of Berlin, have announced this morning that they had proven by clinical experimentation, the existence of some form of life after death. This astonishing announcement is based on the conclusions of a study using a new type of medically supervised near-death experiences, that allow patients to be clinically dead for almost 20 minutes before being brought back to life.

This controversial process that was repeated on 944 volunteers (where did they find them?) over the last four years, necessitates a complex mixture of drugs including epinephrine and dimethyltryptamine, destined to allow the body to survive the state of clinical death and the reanimation process without damage. The body of the subject was then put into a temporary comatic state induced by a mixture of other drugs which had to be filtered by ozone from his blood during the reanimation process 18 minutes later. American death penalty administrators are you reading this?

The extremely long duration of the experience was only recently made possible by the development of a new cardiopulmonary recitation (CPR) machine called the AutoPulse. This type of equipment has already been used over the last few years, to reanimate people who had been dead for somewhere between 40 minutes to an hour.
Dr Berthold Ackermann Technische Universität of Berlin
The team of scientists led by Dr Berthold Ackermann, has monitored the operations and have compiled the testimonies of the subjects. Although there are some slight variations from one individual to another, all of the subjects have some memories of their period of clinical death and a vast majority of them described some very similar sensations.

Most common memories include a feeling of detachment from the body, feelings of levitation, total serenity, security, warmth, the experience of absolute dissolution, and the presence of an overwhelming light.
The scientists say that they are well aware that many of their conclusions could shock a lot of people, like the fact that the religious beliefs of the various subjects seems to have held no incidence at all, on the sensations and experiences that they described at the end of the experiment. Indeed, the volunteers counted in their ranks some members are a variety of Christian churches, Muslims, Jews, Hindus and atheists. Fascinating!

“I know our results could disturb the beliefs of many people” says Mr Ackermann. “But in a way, we have just answered one of the greatest questions in the history of mankind, so I hope these people will be able to forgive us. Yes, there is life after death and it looks like this applies to everyone.”
