    Maybe our perception of this as positive is cultural? Ancient people might have survived near death experiences, and it shaped our society to the point that we believe being reassured while dying is good. We aren’t angered or frightened by our brains lying to us in this particular situation.

      Well it is not necessarily always a positive experience. There have been instances where it scared them so bad that they changed they way they lived. Like they believe they had been sent to hell.
