Other common features of NDEs:
-A sense of peace and calm
-A loud noise often described as annoying.
-A very quick movie of events in one's life.
-The perception of a boundary: a fence, mist, or other delineation that is somehow known to be the point of no return.
-Making the decision or being given an imperative (by the bright light, say, or the angels) to return.
-A very quick return of the consciousness to the body, like being snapped back.
Two common characteristics not part of the NDE but rather its aftermath are:
-Little or no fear of death afterward.
-Difficulty finding words to express the profundity of the experience
