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, amazingly, his consciousness lived on. In his book and in interviews he explains that he was met by a beautiful, blue-eyed woman in a “place of clouds—big, fluffy, pink-white ones… and shimmering beings.”
The experience was, he says, more vivid and real than anything he had ever known in ordinary waking awareness. He is now convinced that the beings he met were higher forms, more advanced than anything in ordinary reality.
Alexander says that like most of his colleagues, he once would have considered any such account of a Near Death Experience as, at best, delusional. Now, he says, he knows the universe is governed by unconditional love, and that we don’t die.
Your Body Sees the Future, Says Report
You may actually be able to tell the future without consciously knowing it. That is the conclusion of a new study supporting the idea of precognition, which appears in the journal Frontiers in Perception Science from the Neuroscience Laboratory at Northwestern University in Illinois.
Humans can anticipate near-future events without any actual evidence foreshadowing the event. Examples could include when you know the car beside you is about to turn into your lane, or when you know your boss is coming down the hall. So says Julia Mossbridge, lead author of the study, who is still at pains to argue that it is all biology—just processes we don’t understand yet. Her study uses brain scan MRIs to demonstrate that our bodies often know before we become actually conscious of the fact.
All of this lends weight to the arguments of maverick scientists like Rupert Sheldrake and Dean Radin. Sheldrake has proven the existence of similar phenomena, like our ability to know when the phone is about to ring, or to know when someone is staring at us.
The notion, however, that such things are possible, is so threatening to mainstream materialist science that we can confidently predict, without any direct knowledge of the future, that the evidence of the Northwestern study will be treated in the same manner as that of Sheldrake and his colleagues—with disregard, if not derision.
