He truly believes he is dead (but he is not)
There are many accounts of people who undergo biological death (deactivation of the soma or desoma) but who believe they are still physically alive (post-mortem psychosis). Such observations stem from phenomena like clairvoyance or the out-of-body experience that may allow us to observe a larger, multidimensional reality. However, few have ever heard of someone who is still physically alive but who is absolutely convinced that he is not (a sort of faux-mortem psychosis). This article, submitted by friend of the blog Preston Parrish (Connecticut, USA) describes one such case of this curious but unfortunate pathology known as Cotard's syndrome.
