I personally believe that our consciousness lives on... in some form or another. I really can't grasp the idea of just "not existing". I believe that we spend time in some other realm, learning about our mistakes, and preparing for another life in which we try to become better people.
The following is the only waking description of his journey in the trance state, taken verbatim from comments he made at a public lecture:
"I see myself as a tiny dot out of my physical body, which lies inert before me." [out-of-body] [orbs]
"I find myself oppressed by darkness and there is a feeling of terrific loneliness." [the void]
"Suddenly, I am conscious of a white beam of light, knowing that I must follow it or be lost." [the light]
"As I move along this path of light I gradually become conscious of various levels upon which there is movement." [the tunnel] [various afterlife realms]
"Upon the first levels there are vague, horrible shapes, grotesque forms such as one sees in nightmares." [hell realm]
"Passing on, there begins to appear on either side misshapen forms of human beings with some part of the body magnified." [another hell realm]
"Again there is change and I become conscious of gray-hooded forms moving downward. Gradually, these become lighter in color." [heavenly realm] [guides]
"Then the direction changes and these forms move upward and the color of the robes grows rapidly lighter." [higher heavenly realms]
"Next, there begins to appear on either side vague outlines of houses, walls, trees, etc., but everything is motionless." [I believe this realm is the physical realm which would appear outside of time.]
"As I pass on, there is more light and movement in what appear to be normal cities and towns. With the growth of movement I become conscious of sounds, at first indistinct rumblings, then music, laughter, and singing of birds. There is more and more light, the colors become very beautiful, and there is the sound of wonderful music. The houses are left behind; ahead there is only a blending of sound and color." [cities of light] [heavenly music]
"Quite suddenly I come upon a Hall of Records. It is a hall without walls, without ceiling, but I am conscious of seeing an old man who hands me a large book, a record of the individual for whom I seek information." [a good description of the Temple of Knowledge that people refer to in other NDEs]
It's pretty selfish and arrogant to think that you and everyone else is immortal and all this stuff, it's the most pretentious thing i've ever heard.

Yes, I do.
The debunkers will run in like flies on fecal matter, but I'm posting it anyways. Why? Because if the debunkers are intelligent enough to listen to what this doctor says, she was completely DEAD during the time these events took place, and it was IMPOSSIBLE that she could of repeated the conversations of what happened etc. SHE WAS DEAD during the time these doctors were perform THOSE PARTS OF THE SURGEORY DEAD DEAD DEAD DEAD DEAD DEAD DEAD DEAD If I could elaborate how DEAD she was, I would.
I'll just leave this here.
All skeptics can screw off, it says it astonished doctors and experts, therefore, unless you're Greggory House, you can keep your feelings to yourself.
