During my five years of being a Rel. Soc. president, I experienced some unusual things. I shall record two of them, below.
1. I went to visit a very ill woman in our ward, who was in the hospital. As she appeared to be asleep, and because I had heard that one's hearing is the last thing that 'goes', I took her hand and began to talk to her. Upon doing so, she awakened, and told me how embarrassed she was, because she had spittle in her closed hand.
Just at this point, a nurse came around the corner into her room, and told me that no one was supposed to visit her, as she was on death-watch only. That is, she was comatose, and (supposedly) couldn't speak to anyone--which proved to me that our alert spirit stays around for awhile, even when comatose.
2. On another visit, I went to a very kind woman's home, where she was 'living', even though she was unable to communicate with anyone. I took her hand and began to talk to her, and she 'awakened' enough to talk perfectly coherently with me.
However, her husband--who was a dumb jerk who had made fun of her mental in-capacities--quickly rushed into the room to bawl me out for talking with his wife. Then, at the precise moment of his entering the room, she immediately returned to her incoherent state of being.
How she was ever able to tolerate being married to this dumb cluck all her life, I'll never know.
