Firstly, the guy is selling a book, so I would take everything he says with a BIG dose of salt. People will do anything for money, and as there is no
scientific proof for his claims, this story has no more validity than any others before it. It's still just a story, whether the guy is a
neurosurgeon or not.
For the record, I do believe in the afterlife. But my take on it is a little different. As all energy is transferred and never destroyed, and we
function through energy, I believe that the energy we contain simply moves to another existence or another dimension of being.
I have had my own out of body experience, a typical one some might say. I had a seizure a couple of years ago, which turned out to be the result of a
heart problem which drops my circulation. I know that's a standard "lack of oxygen to the brain" explanation, but although I can't remember the
details of what happened during the experience, I do remember seeing both my parents, and having the sense that it was not my time to join them. But I
also had the sense when I came around that everything was going to be okay, there was nothing to be worried about.
Even though I had just had a seizure, and there were loads of people gathered around me, paramedics monitoring my heart and people telling me there
was a problem, I was as calm as can be - probably more calm than I ever have been.
It's hard to explain, I don't believe in God, I don't believe in Heaven in the traditional sense, and I know the scientific explanations of lack of
oxygen and so on... but I know what I experienced and how I felt. That's good enough for me to accept that there is another existence after this one,
and if I got a little glimpse of that existence than I have to admit I look forward to it one day - but not after I've sucked as much fun out of
being a physical being for as long as possible
