What is the orthodox Catholic thinking about near-death/out-of-body experiences in which a person says he died, had some sort of supernatural experience, and then came back to life?
I’ve heard that some people who’ve had these experiences talk about the next life as a “fuller reality” than this life, as waking up is a “fuller reality” than dreaming. And I’ve heard that sometimes people don’t want to come back to this life, but “it’s not their time”, and they are resuscitated or something.
What do theologians think of this? Is it compatible with orthodox Catholicism?
