“Near-death experiences (NDEs)” are usually depicted with a vivid perception of departure from the physical body and being in a distinctive spatial and temporal area setting. There are challenges to whether consciousness during this phenomenon is cerebral or extracerebral? To investigate this subject further, the AWARE research projects were designed. It was a research milestone in this field. During the AWARE projects, images were put in the cardio pulmonary resuscitation (CPR) area. The person with experience of leaving the body was then asked about the nature of the images. In a recent project, a complementary system was designed that contains two main parts: a transmitter connected to the electroshock (as starter) and a receiver connected to the monitor. The laboratory experiment showed that the connection between the parts of the system was systematically and meticulously organized. This new system, such as the AWARE projects, is based on the perception of the visual and auditory elements, during the out-of-body experience component of the NDE but, unlike the AWAREs, it has three main differences in testing of visual elements: unfixed/dynamic images, “timed” movie's capacity, and the automatic activation. Also this system, records the ambient sounds.So, after the successful resuscitation, researchers will be asked about the ambient sounds specification. The new system records the ambient sounds. Consequently, it becomes feasible to study environmental and corporeal events in more detail, during the phenomenon.
