Kenneth Ring published a scientific paper in the Journal of Near-Death Studies Summer, about people who have had a near-death experience NDE of a type providing verified evidence supporting the Afterlife Hypothesis.
Such people suddenly find themselves outside of their bodies and observing detailed events happening far away, sometimes hundreds and thousands of miles away, which were later verified by third-parties to have actually occurred. This phenomenon is called " veridical perception " and it is currently unexplainable by modern medical science.
Such verified out-of-body observations are highly suggestive of a reality where consciousness can survive apart from the physical body and perhaps survive even death.
Should conclusive evidence of veridical perception be found under strict laboratory conditions, it would be one of the greatest scientific discoveries of all time. There have been research studies performed, such as the AWARE Studywhere hospitals have attempted to monitor cardiac patients for possible NDEs as they occur in the hospital.
Targets displaying random images are placed near the ceiling where out-of-body perceptions are more likely to occur during cardiac arrest.
There already exists a substantial amount of anecdotal accounts of veridical perception, and it may only be a matter of time before out-of-body veridical perception is proven to exist under strict research controls which will satisfy the skeptics.
In this article you will discover even more astonishing evidence supporting the Afterlife Hypothesis.Perhaps no aspect of mind is more familiar or more puzzling than consciousness and our conscious experience of self and world.
The problem of consciousness is arguably the central issue in current theorizing about the mind. Reveals the evidence of life beyond death • Examines years of scientific research into reincarnation, apparitions, and communication with the dead showing these phenomena are real.
If consciousness is a fundamental property of matter, it appears as though all matter and collections of matter have a conscious aspect. Consciousness is the quality or state of being aware of an external object or something within oneself.
It has been defined as: sentience, awareness, subjectivity, the ability to experience or to feel, wakefulness, having a sense of selfhood, and the executive control system of the mind. Phenomenal consciousness is a form of state-consciousness: it is a property which some, but not other, mental states possess.
More specifically, it is the property which mental states have when it is like something to undergo them (Nagel’s famous phrase, ). The Great Unmentionable (Note: It is still often thought today that any form of belief in an afterlife is "unscientific."To disarm any criticisms on that score, readers are referred to the Appendix in which the question is briefly treated.).
It is sometimes said that Death today has replaced Sex as "The Great Unmentionable," and certainly it is, for most people, an uncomfortable subject which.
