  3. 3. ABSTRACT “The Human Death Process” contains schedule about the dying process, and those who have been with the dying in their final hours, which help us to understand that death is a process (End of Life Experiences). The experiences suggest that we are looked after throughout the transition from life to death, and taken on a journey into love and light by loved ones who come back to take us. Other accounts are from people who have been emotionally close to someone and who, unaware that the person they love is dying, experience a sudden strong sense of their presence or an intimation of their death. Rational, scientific explanations for these experiences are hard to find, and it is almost impossible, in the face of them, to sustain the current scientific view that our consciousness is entirely brain-based , and that it is extinguished at the moment our brain ceases to function (materialism view) . The world is more highly interconnected and more complex than the simple mechanical or biochemical model we have followed for so long. The evidence suggests we are more than brain function, and that something - soul or spirit or consciousness - will continue in some form or another for a while at least. We can ensure a "good death" for ourselves and help those we love achieve it too. "”The Human Death Process) demonstrates that we can face death with a peaceful and untroubled mind; that death is not a lonely or a fearful journey, but an intensely hopeful one.
