I have to add that although I believe there is an agenda and a cashing in on the story there is also the believability of the story itself. As some
have pointed out, we should be discussing the validity of "Heaven".
Some have suggested that the good doctor was dreaming which is well and good but there is a major difference between dreaming and a lucid experience.
One factor is it is very similar to our known day to day existence where as a dream state is usually sketchy and leaves people with an over whelming
emotion such as anger, fear, betrayal, etc. Dreams aren't as vivid as an NDE or OBE, people in these states can report massive amounts of information
about what they have seen and experienced right down to word for word conversations and a definite recognition of the people they have met.
The fact that this guy is a neurosurgeon shouldn't bring anymore weight to the story in my opinion. The weight is that he was monitored for brain
activity during his coma which loosely points to there being a place after death. Unfortunately as suggested by others this state could have been
achieved during his recovery period from his coma, from my experience time is hugely distorted during these states of mind and a few minutes can feel
like a few hours or even longer but our reality is no different really. We have time distortion all the time and probably every person on earth has
experienced it at one time or another, a good one to think of is how fast time has gone and having the feeling that something in your life "feels like
it happened yesterday" or how slow time goes when watching a clock or when you are in a situation that makes you more aware of the passing of time
such as school or work.
There are so many out in the world that have experiences but have gone down the road of trying to cash in on it as much as they possibly can.
One that comes to mind: www.youtube.com...
Not that I doubt her story or her ability, I do however disagree that this person should charge thousands of dollars to be commissioned as an artist.
Ultimately I believe that the messages and help that one can deliver from having an experience of this type should be free and accessible to everyone
not those that have the most money or can afford in this day and age to run and buy a book.
So in essence I believe this doctor had a profound and life changing experience that he feels should be shared but I disagree with the capitalizing
that goes along with it. For many people this diminishes the validity of the story which directly affects its impact on the world.
Some have suggested that the doctor is already wealthy and has a stable financial situation, that's awesome but don't underestimate the effect Greed
can have on a person. I also pointed out in an earlier post that he has hooked up with the Monroe Institute which is why I believe there is a book
deal, I'm sure the sales will benefit the institute as well as him. I also believe there is an agenda that is being pushed behind the scenes by the
institute to monopolize on the situation. So maybe he isn't greedy and is being directed along this path by others, only those involved will know the
truth of it but from the outside looking in there is a money grab happening.
