Good post,it is a subject which will attract "believers" and "sceptics". Is is a very interesting subject. I want to provide you and everyone with
some new information regarding the subject.
A dutch cardiologist did a 20 year study on NDE and provided us with a lovely book
Pim van Lommel: Infinite Consciousness, a scientific vision on Near Death Experience. This book only came out in October 2007 and will be available in
English in 2008.
Raymond Moody is also a solid provider and investigation in this matter.
Interesting read on a possible link to our conception of "soul" and "light" on the one hand and quantumphysical conceptions on light and
information on the other hand is this link
I will translate a snippet out of the article which is in German .
"There are some physicst that have something to say -about NDE and ghostllike appearances- these matters. Lately the Viennese quantumphysicist Prof.
Anton Zeilinger caem with the experimental result which seem to corroborate similar effects in our reality. And also quantumphysicist prof.Hans-Peter
Duerr, formerly leader of the Max Plack institute in Munich, represents this opinion that Dualism of the smallest particles does not only is
represented in the subatomic world, but is allpresent.
The dualism between body and soul is for them just as real as the wave-particle dualism of the smallest particles, so the fact that LIGHT can choose
one form or the other, electromagnetic wave or lightparticle. There must be a quantumcode that reaches through all living and dead matter from here to
the big bang. Consequently Duerr believes in Existence after death"
My own analysis on the subject is focussing on the aspect which follows out the exeperiment of Bell in 1982 (in which light seems to be in two places
at the same time at the moment it is created [the light "knows" where is has to be to exist (detected) even if the space on the subatomic level is
incomprehensible large and such information can logically not be available to the created light "particle"]) In a sense information seems to be
allpresent at that level.
Theories concerning Remote Viewing that are concerned with the information space/time paradox, which I will formulate as "How can we know something
which is happening at another place/time or in another mind while we are physically and electronically shielded from it and only being supplied with
the coordinates of the place? , seem to point in the same direction in my opinion, which is : a timeless grid that is within and outside us and
connects us as human beings and only can be comprehended at this point as light/information independently of the space/time continuum
Which of course be awesome.
Could it be that our consciousness in a way can stay or hold on/exist in that timeless grid and eventually travel further into unknown regions?
