Near Death Experience: Life Flashing Before Your Eyes Can Enable the Mind to See the Future – Scientists | scientists science | news

When many people have a life-threatening accident, they claim to have insight into their lives. One famous incident in particular came from the famous British saxophonist Tony Kofi, who fell from a third floor building as a teenager. Mr Kofi described the experience afterwards and said he believed he saw a glimpse into the future.

The two-time BBC Jazz winner said: “In my mind’s eye, I saw many, many things: children I haven’t even had, friends I had never seen but are my friends now.

“What I really remember was playing an instrument.”

Mr. Kofu said it was this experience that inspired him to pick up the instrument and learn to play – something that had never crossed his mind before.

While some would argue that it was the vision that led Mr. Kofi to play jazz, one psychologist believes that it is not out of the question that the musician may have glimpsed into the future.

Steve Taylor, Senior Lecturer in Psychology at Leeds Beckett University, toyed with the idea that time exists in a “spatial” sense.

This idea suggests that time is just a human construct and our minds are designed to see it flow from the past through the present into the future.

Taylor wrote in The Conversation: “Since Einstein’s theory of relativity, some physicists have adopted a ‘spatial’ view of time.

“They argue that we live in a static ‘block universe’ in which time is distributed in a kind of panorama in which past, present and future coexist.”

“But I don’t think it’s impossible that Tony saw future events.

“If time really does exist in a spatial sense – and if it is true that time is a construct of the human mind – then perhaps future events may in some ways already be present, just as past events are still present.

“Admittedly, that is very difficult to understand. But why should it all make sense to us?

“As I suggested in a recent book, there must be some aspects of reality that are beyond our understanding.

“After all, we are only animals with a limited awareness of reality. And that is perhaps more true than any other phenomenon of time.”
