While many have experienced NDEs or OBEs it is always interesting when academics or medical people have the experience, because they are usually skeptics and non-believers. This one is more interesting because his body was monitored minutely the entire time.
Interestingly almost everybody that experiences a NDE or OBE reacts similarly. They loose the fear of death, they KNOW that life continues, that death is just a transformation. Their lives often change for the better and they are more happy and joyful and live more consciously. I can vow to that as I have had my own out of body experiences. It makes life magical again….
