The evidence of some type of awareness or consciousness existing separate from the body is actually quite compelling, but more research is needed.

Researchers at the University of Southampton spent four years studying more than 2,000 people who suffered cardiac arrest. They gathered data from 15 different hospitals in the UK, US, and Austria. The study was conducted in 2014.
They found that nearly 40 percent of people who survived described some type of ‘awareness’ during the time they were pronounced clinically dead before their hearts were restarted.
One remarkable story came from a 57-year-old man who, despite being unconscious and dead, recalled watching the entire process of his resuscitation.

According to the authors, in a press release by the University of Southampton, “The recalled experience surrounding death merits a genuine investigation without prejudice.”
Dr. Sam Parnia, the lead author of the study who is now a professor of Medicine at the NYU Langone Medical Center explains,
“We know the brain can’t function when the heart has stopped beating, but in this case, conscious awareness appears to have continued for up to three minutes into the period when the heart wasn’t beating, even though the brain typically shuts down within 20-30 seconds after the heart has stopped. The man described everything that had happened in the room, but importantly, he heard two bleeps from a machine that makes a noise at three minute intervals. So we could time how long the experienced lasted for. He seemed very credible and everything that he said had happened to him had actually happened.”
He goes on to explain the significance,
“This is significant, since it has often been assumed that experiences in relation to death are likely hallucinations or illusions, occurring either before the heart stops or after the heart has been successfully restarted, but not an experience corresponding with ‘real’ events when the heart isn’t beating.”
Many people describe very specific details of what happened to them during cardiac arrest. They describe conversations people had, clothes people wore, events that went on 10 or 20 minutes into resuscitation, where certain people are located in a room for example, and what they are doing. This is not compatible with brain activity.
