People can tell their age buy how many years they've been alive.

Your weight is the force of your mass accelerating at 9.8m/s/s, but thankfully scales do all that math for you, make some assumptions about what planet you're on, cancels out some units and whatnot, and spits out a number that's suspiciously close to your mass, known as your weight.

No wonder that's confusing.

If a near-death experience cause a persistent problem that eventually claims your life, is it still a near-death experience or a death experience? For that matter is death an experience for the one who dies? It's really an experience for the people close to the deceased, thus it must be a near-death experience.

I think that depends on how we define experience, or an experience. It's a fairly big term on its own, my life can be a joyful experience, I can experience pain, love, hunger, prolonged or temporary. But I think, if the experience ultimately ends in death, it's a death experience.

No. The person dies. The loved ones experience loss, loss caused by their loved ones experiencing death.

Does death count as an experience though? What really defines an experience? If an experience requires a memory of the event, then the deceased cannot experience death without the soul persisting. If the soul persists is the person truly dead? If the soul doesn't persist then the memory of said experience cannot be the deceased's. If it is remembered by others, then it should stand to reason that they experience death, although they do not die.

But 0% of their near near death experiences

Or is what happens just before the near death experience the actual near near death experience?

You could also just be near to the other side of death. -1 is as close to zero as 1 is.

Can't die without being alive first. Meanwhile try dying when you're dead it's too late then.

Sometimes you get that "oh, an alternate universe me just died" feeling when you outmaneuver a crash or recover from a skid on a winding mountain road.
