If a person stays in the centrifuge until they begin to black out, they have the "near death" experience
with the tunnel vision and the white light. It's all caused by lack of oxygen to the brain.
But this doesn't sell thousands of books and TV shows to the woo-woo crowd. They will only believe in the most unbelievable explanation.
