Psychological Evidence of the Afterlife (New Section) There are three broad classifications of NDEs: transcendental theories, psychological theories, and physiological theories. The following articles in this new section detail these theories and how the transcendental theory of the NDE is the only logical theory among them all. Some aspects of the NDE phenomena cannot be easily explained with our current knowledge of psychological models and human physiological theories.
Philosophical Evidence of the Afterlife (New Section) – The so-called “mind-body problem” and its corresponding “hard problem of consciousness” is described in context with the NDE. The two central schools of thought on the mind-brain problem are “dualism” and “monism.” Substance “dualists” argue for the existence in the universe of two fundamentally different kinds of substance: physical matter (such as the brain) and the non-physical (mind or consciousness). “Property dualists” argue that the world is composed of just one kind of substance — the physical kind — which exists in two distinct kinds of properties: physical properties and mental properties. Both substance and property dualism support the philosophy of mind concerning a transcendent consciousness which can survive after the death of the brain and body — namely through quantum mechanical means (see the Orch-OR theory of consciousness). Monism argues that the mind is part of the brain, and that they are not ontologically distinct substances. “Physicalists” believe NDEs to be purely a physical hallucination brought on by brain anomalies despite the fact that brain anomalies have been refuted in numerous peer-reviewed studies as the cause of NDEs.
Webmaster Kevin Williams’ Family’s After-Death Communications From His Mother – Have you ever been contacted by a loved one in a dream shortly after they died? Or have you ever heard their voice, or sensed their presence, or experienced a “sign” in the form of a remarkable coincidence soon after a loved one dies. Tens of millions of Americans have. Such after-death communications (ADCs) are defined as “spiritual experiences occurring when a person is contacted directly and spontaneously by a family member or friend who has died.” My updated website has added a plethora of new ADC evidence to form a new Brief Timeline of My Family’s ADCs from my Mother and a new Detailed Timeline of My Family’s ADCs from my Mother. My family began receiving ADCs from my mother just days after she died suddenly in 2001. We continue to receive ADCs regularly throughout the decades following her death with the latest ADC occurring in 2018. These ADCs from my mother take the form of lucid dreams, ADCs of her presence, auditory ADCs, and numerous “synchronicities” experienced by family members coinciding around her special anniversaries, such as the day of her death and her birthday. These synchronicities are experiences related to my mother’s favorite song, Moon River, a beautiful song by Henry Mancini originally created to be performed by Audrey Hepburn in Truman Capote’s movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and a song made more famous by Andy Williams, a song sung her at her memorial, and a song perfectly defining her personality and life.
Experiences of Light in Gay and Lesbian Near-Death Experiences – This article by NDE researcher Dr. Liz Dale, published in the Journal of Near-Death Studies, illustrates the concept of divine light in stories from lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) near-death experiencers. In her groundbreaking book, Crossing Over and Coming Home: Twenty-One Authors Discuss the Gay NDE as Spiritual Transformation, Dr. Dale recorded numerous personal accounts of NDEs from within the LGBT community. There was a time when LGBT people were the shamans, the healers, the visionaries, the mediators, the peacekeepers, and the “people who walk between the worlds.” Some indigenous tribes have believed in gays having a higher “vibrational” level which enables them to be guardians of the gateways of the spirit world. Kevin Williams’ website shows how humans and higher-order beings in NDEs have spirits that are genderless (without genitals) and have the appearance of androgyny.
Telepathy and the Near-Death Experience – This updated article analyzes numerous NDEs concerning the “telepathic” communication reported by NDErs during their NDEs. This type of communication has been described as instantaneous information exchange between two or more individuals in these afterlife realms. Some NDErs have described NDE telepathy as hearing the thoughts of others as the other person’s voice speaking in the NDEr’s mind. Others NDErs have described it as “idea transfer” rather than “word transfer.” Other NDErs have described NDE telepathy as a “knowing” or an “awareness”. And as you will read in this article, other NDErs have experienced NDE telepathy as receiving entire “blocks of knowledge” or the equivalent of receiving all the knowledge of the universe in “chucks.”
Reincarnation In The Bible – This is a 8-part article including evidence such as: Jesus’ teaching of John the Baptist as Elijah is the clearest biblical statement of reincarnation. And the most important factor concerning “John as Elijah” is that if John was not Elijah, then Jesus was not the Messiah because the coming of Elijah and the Messiah go together. The Bible also mentions other reincarnating prophets and other holy people. The Greek word “palingenesía” is used in the Bible which is translated “reincarnation.” The mystery of a “Last Day” end time “Resurrection of the Dead” on “Judgment Day” of corpses worldwide “resting in peace” until a final “Night of the Living Dead” is a misunderstanding of the teachings of Christian reincarnation. The Catholic Church officials wrote a few hundred years after Christ that reincarnation was the secret interpretation of the “Resurrection of the Dead” handed down as a mystery teaching from the apostles as an oral tradition to those initiated into the Christian mysteries. In this article, you will learn the why the “resurrection” teaching for the general public was “dead bodies coming out of tombs” while “live babies coming out of wombs” was kept as a mystery teaching of “resurrection.” Jesus taught, “You must be born again” which is a literal reference to bodily rebirth (reincarnation) and a metaphor for spiritual rebirth (“resurrection”, spiritual regeneration).
David Wilcock as the Reincarnation of Edgar Cayce – David Wilcock (born March 8, 1973) is a bestselling author, a professional lecturer, a TV host on the GAIA TV Network, a filmmaker of metaphysical documentaries, a popular figure appearing on numerous cable TV documentaries and Internet shows, a researcher and authority on the subjects of: ancient civilizations, consciousness science, and new paradigms of matter and energy, and a psychic counselor. His popular website, DivineCosmos.com, contains thousands of free pages of scientific and spiritual information about soul growth, Ascension and the evolution of consciousness. Wilcock attended the State University of New York at New Platz and graduated with a BA in Psychology and a Master’s. His first two books, The Source Field Investigations and The Synchronicity Key, were New York Times bestsellers. His latest book, Ascension Mysteries: Revealing the Cosmic Battle Between Good and Evil (2016), is a bestseller on Amazon. His upcoming Hollywood film CONVERGENCE unveils the proof that all life on Earth is united in a field of consciousness, which affects our minds in fascinating ways. Wilcock is also the subject and co-author of the international bestseller, The Reincarnation of Edgar Cayce?, which explores the remarkable similarities between Wilcock and Cayce.
People Have Near-Death Experiences While Brain Dead – Much was added to this page to transform it into your “Complete Guide to the Journal of Near-Death Studies Debate of Verified Out-of-Body Perception in NDEs.” Beginning in the summer of 2007, Keith Augustine submitted three skeptical papers related to the Pam Reynolds’ case to the scholarly, peer-reviewed journal on NDEs called the Journal of Near-Death Studies. Augustine is a philosopher and executive editor of an organization and website promoting atheism called “Internet Infidels” — now renamed “The Secular Web.” After Augustine’s papers and the critical peer-reviewed commentaries on them were published, another skeptic’s papers were presented related to the Pam Reynolds’ case which were accepted to the Journal and peer-reviewed. Gerald Woerlee is a Dutch anesthesiologist and author of several books including the anti-religious book “The Unholy Legacy of Abraham” where he presents his skeptical theory about phenomena such as NDEs as being religious fantasies of the brain.
Lou Famoso’s Near-Death Experience – In 1963, Lou Famoso was involved in a car accident resulting in an NDE so transcendental, he prefers to call it a “Life After Death” (LAD) experience. Indeed, according to his doctor, it was a miracle he survived the accident. His encounter with the Being of Light, the archangels Michael and Gabriel, and his visions of the future involving the constellation of Orion and catastrophic Earth changes, makes his experience one of the most exceptional NDE testimonies I have read. He was told to tell the world to look to Orion to know when the Earth changes will occur, after which, a new world will emerge. Some of his visions may have already occurred such as a devastation of portions of New York City (which may be a reference to the September 11 terrorist attack) and a space station falling from the sky because of an internal explosion (the 1986 Space Shuttle Challenger disaster). Lou also saw missiles being firing simultaneously into space from several nations. His visions of the future include severe Earth changes such as solar eruptions occurring more than in the past affecting the Earth’s poles; huge earthquakes; ash clouds engulfing the Earth; and oceans rising significantly.
