Near Death Experience

The Case for Immortality

By Patrick Marsolek

“When I was fully into the light I realized it was the most incredibly beautiful light that I had ever seen. It seemed to have a personality that was beyond belief-loving. I was happy just being in the light. I remember then that I heard a voice that I thought was the light that surrounded me. Without having a body, somehow I talked to the voice. I was shown that the white light was really made up of all the colors. I was shown the…

The Will to Disbelieve

By Michael Tymn

In his 1989 presidential address to the Society for Psychical Research (SPR), the late Professor Ian Stevenson pointed out that between 1910 and 1980 at least six presidents of the SPR asserted that telepathy had been proved, or nearly so. He wondered why, if telepathy had been proved by 1910, later presidents found it necessary to reiterate the claim. Dr. Stevenson speculated that each generation of researchers tends to believe its methods superior to those of its predecessors and therefore they may have seen the…

Lost Tradition of the Sacred Bee

By Andrew Gough

Washington’s Monument, arguably the most enigmatic testament to America’s hope and vision for the future, also contains a powerful reference to its past: “Holiness to the Lord. Deseret,” it states, meaning ‘Holiness to the Lord, the Honeybee.’ The word ‘Deseret’ translates as Honeybee in the language of the Jaredites, a mysterious tribe that is believed to have migrated to the Americas during the time of the construction of the Tower of Babel, according to Mormon tradition. The existence of this peculiar dedication to a bee,…

Brain Surgeon Discovers Heaven Exists Dr. Eben Alexander, a Harvard-trained brain surgeon, once believed the brain was the seat of consciousness. No longer. The author of a new book, Proof of Heaven, has gone public with a remarkable personal story. The upshot, he concludes, “Consciousness is the most profound mystery in the Universe,” and the brain cannot account for it. After contracting meningitis in 2008, Alexander suffered clinical death. The part of his brain that controls human thought and emotion was completely shut down, but,…

Brain to Brain Communication “It’s not telepathy,” says Dr. Christopher James. Yet the British researcher and his team at the University of South Hampton in England say they have figured out how to do direct brain-to-brain communications over the Internet. We know what you’re thinking: isn’t that telepathy? For those who have dreamed of the fantastic possibilities of actual mind reading, the new approach may seem somewhat unsatisfying. True telepathy, as far as most current scientists are concerned, doesn’t even exist. And, cer­tainly, in the…

NEAR DEATH EXPERIENCE GETS NEW SCRUTINY A major new study is underway in London’s Hammersmith Hospital which is intended to answer, once and for all, scientifically speaking, the question: is there life after death? Headed up by the highly respected medical scientist Dr. Sam Parnia, the project is intended to take a very rigorous look at the celebrated and so-called Near Death Experience (NDE), with the goal of determining whether or not it is real, or merely illusion. Parnia says he started as a skeptic…

Grounded with Dr. Moody by a Volcano

By Michael Cremo

In April 13, I flew from Los Angeles to Paris on Air France, and the next day I flew from Paris to Bologna, Italy. On April 15, I spoke about my book Human Devolution at the sixteenth International Conference for Parapsychological and Bioenergetic Research in Bellaria, Italy. Bellaria is a small resort town on the Adriatic coast of Italy, about an hour’s drive from Bologna. Human Devolution has been published in Italian (under the title Le origini segreti della razza umana), with the help of…

Surgeon Searches for the Soul

By Michael E. Tymn

There is one short question that sums up mankind’s greatest concern: Are brain and mind one and the same? If, as mainstream science chooses to believe, they are the same, we live in a purely mechanistic world without any real meaning, and we are all marching toward an abyss of nothingness. The materialist who waves the banner of human­ism will argue that meaning is found in building a better world for future generations, but that begs the question of what future generations will strive for…

Near-Death Experience in the Olden Days

MICHAEL E. TYMN

Before Dr. Raymond Moody named the Near-Death Experience (NDE) and popularized it in his 1975 best-selling book Life After Life, very few people were aware of the phenomenon. Over the past 35 years, however, there have been doz­ens of books discussing the NDE—a phenomenon which suggests that there is an energy body or spirit body which separates from the physical body at death and lives on in another dimension of reality. But skeptics and debunkers now question new NDE reports, claiming that reading about such…

Judgment Day

BY MICHAEL E. TYMN

After many years of murdering, raping, and pillaging with malice aforethought, twin brothers Jed and Ned were final­ly stopped by the police. Jed was shot and killed instantly, while Ned was apprehended and sent to prison for life. Dur­ing his confinement, Ned “found” God and repented. Jed and Ned are fictional characters created here to examine divine justice as perceived by familiar biblical ortho­doxy (a view which does not accept the justice-providing mechanism of reincarnation and karma—Ed.). The predom­inant view is that Jed faces eternal…
