What makes a person believe that he visited heaven? Is there a way for science to get at what’s really going on? Gideon Lichfield mounts an empirical investigation of near-death experiences, concluding that more rigorous research must be pursued to understand what happens in the minds of “experiencers,” as they call themselves. One thing is abundantly clear, though. Near-death experiences are pivotal events in people’s lives. “It’s a catalyst for growth on many different levels—psychologically, emotionally, maybe even physiologically,” says Mitch Liester, a psychiatrist.
In the 1960s a ground-breaking idea emerged: that freezing people soon after their death might preserve brain structures, and that in the future advanced technology and know-how might allow these frozen cadavers to be resuscitated and given extended life. Fifty years later, more than 250 people have undergone cryopreservation procedures following their passing (though contrary to what you may have heard, Walt Disney is not one of them), with a small ‘cryonics’ industry storing their bodies (or in some cases, just their heads) awaiting future salvation.
This documentary, We Will Live Again, takes a look inside “the unusual and extraordinary operations of the Cryonics Institute”, following Ben Best and Andy Zawacki, the caretakers of 99 deceased human bodies stored at below freezing temperatures in cryopreservation. It’s a strange and thought-provoking exploration of mortality, and our attempts to avoid it, well worth a watch.
A woman talks about a near-death experience which occurred following a suicide attempt. She had the typical out-of-body experience and watched her physical body from a short distance. She then met her spirit guide and had a life review.
It is being called the most documented case of reincarnation ever. A little boy is able to recall over 50 memories from someone else’s life. A World War II Pilot’s family believes it is their reincarnated brother based on the child’s memories. The boy’s story is so compelling, it has been published in a new book called “Soul Survivor.”
In the premiere episode of the second season of ‘Through the Wormhole’, Morgan Freeman dives deep into this provocative question that has mystified humans since the beginning of time. Freeman serves as host to this polarized debate, where scientists and spiritualist attempt to define ‘what is consciousness,’ while cutting edge quantum mechanics could provide the answer to what happens when we die.
Whether you believe this type of NDE or not, the hilarious part about this video is how bored this kid is after having seen Jesus and talked to God. You’d think that experience would give you some enthusiasm but this kid sounds like he’s talking about last week’s leftovers.
This is a great unbiased and scientific documentary about Near Death Experiences. Can the brain live on after clinical death or is it something else? What do we know about Consciousness? New science research reveals some startling findings.
Dr. Maurice Rawlings, MD, a heart surgeon, has written a number of books on the death experience and clearly shows from his own practice and from the experiences of his patients, that not everyone goes to the light when they die, where there is total love. Many of his patients, after being resuscitated on the operating table, spoke about hell.
