God and the Senses in Near Death Experiences

The Huffington Post reports a story of a woman who had a near death experience (NDE) and instead of just a tunnel with a light, she reports that she saw, heard....and smelled...and touched...and tasted God.  She says she experienced God as “an immense brightness –- a brightness I could feel, taste, touch, hear, smell –- that infused me. Not like I had five senses, but maybe like I had 500 senses.”

So the trope of smelling, touching, and tasting God (not just seeing and hearing God) persists in NDE's.
