...it seems to have broken into two "rival" camps.
Not rival, but disparate.
The old 'classical' physics (or Newtonian physics) deals with reality on the macro scale; whereas the 'new' physics deals with reality at the sub-atomic, quantum level. Unfortunately, the two do not associate well with each other, there is no seamless and smooth transition from macro to micro realities. Newtonian physics breaks down at the micro scale, gravity cannot be incorporated at this level, it is too weak.
If we are really able to understand NDE, then I think it is entirely possible it could revolutionize medicine, especially resuscitation.
So, what do you feel is the explanation for the lack of a coherent transition?

No, that is not substantial evidence, not in the scientific sense.
The sense of disembodiment of consciousness occurs within the psychology of the experient as a dissociative state.
Okay. Suppose we allow for consciousness to continue when the physical body has been destroyed, how or what would be the mechanism of sensory stimulus. If consciousness (representing sentient awareness and intelligence) is still functioning, how is it able to sense external stimuli, process that stimuli, and still present the experient with sensory experience?
Neurotransmitter receptors research is intricate and really not that advanced at the moment, so the precise molecular mechanisms behind these experiences elude us for now.
When we come to a place where we find there IS A COMMON DENOMINATOR for ALL humanity, we will be 'there' - at "The Real Truth." Until then, religious factions will fuss and fight and belittle one another, when in actuality NONE of them (of the Abrahamics, anyway) have ALL of "The Real Truth."
Sure, it's not "surprising" - but the thing is: IT MAKES SENSE!
A wrathful, angry, jealous God is incompatible with what we know about compassion, love, honesty, and the virtues that we, as humans, are born with.
You mean like what Jesus taught?
People should read the book before giving a review...

In a bit of a "twist," the colors we see are every color but the color the objects actually "is."
The color we see things to be is the color that is refracted/reflected from the object. All of the actual colors of the object are absorbed.
I guess it could still be argued that this should be considered the universally accepted "color," but I do think its important to understand how we perceive color as we do.
We can also speak of two different color palettes, one where colors are mixed to gain black (like in painting), and one where the colors are mixed to gain white (like on our computer monitor).
Color is just a part of the wavelengths that go far beyond our perspective. And, I think that the difference between perception and actuality might fully encompass the topic at hand, and the "why and how" of NDE, OOBE, and life after death.
Yes, our perception of what our five senses tell us, is really not what all is going on.
So perhaps some people see the CYMK on paper while others only see the RGB on the computer screen
