^ APOD is my homepage and I was thinking the EXACT same thing when I watched that this morning. Another very cool thought: When we die time isn't supposed to exist. Guess what? From a photon's POV, time doesn't exist. Although another possible answer to the tunnel effect is that when every optical nerve fires at the same time you see something akin to a bright white tunnel. I'll see if I can find the page, but I saw simulations of what it would look like for your visual cortex to be in overdrive and it looks a lot like artists' depictions of near death experiences.
