A SCIENTIST’S CASE FOR THE AFTERLIFE Thousands of people have had near-death experiences, but scientists have argued that they are impossible. Dr. Eben Alexander was one of those scientists. A highly trained neurosurgeon, Alexander knew that NDEs feel real, but are simply fantasies produced by brains under extreme stress. Then, Dr. Alexander’s own brain was attacked by a rare illness. The part of the brain that controls thought and emotion—and in essence makes us human—shut down completely. For seven days he lay in a coma. Then, as his doctors
considered stopping treatment, Alexanderâ€™s eyes popped open. He had come back. Alexanderâ€™s recovery is a medical miracle. But the real miracle of his story lies elsewhere. While his body lay in coma, Alexander journeyed beyond this world and encountered an angelic being who guided him into the deepest realms of super-physical existence. There he met, and spoke with, the Divine source of the universe itself.
Reviews: I have read many books on consciousness studies and the implications for humanity. Also, i have read a dozen or more books on NDEs and 'life after death.' This is the book to start with if these subjects interest you. And how could they not? Not only is it a gripping story of a 'tough-minded' scientist literally seeing the light, it can serve as an introduction to quantum physics and indeed consciousness itself. Chapter 33, the quantum enigma, is itself easily worth the price of the book. Even though Dr Alexander is a brain surgeon and researcher of the highest order, his writing here is entirely accessible to just about any reader. Simple, straight forward, and entirely mind-blowing in its implications. Who doesn't want to believe that we are entirely and truly loved, that ultimately everything turns out well, and our happiness is assured and eternal? Too many books treating these subjects lapse into occult jargon and popular fairy tales of channeled messages and mysterious spiritual masters and etc. This book, though treating the most amazing concepts you will ever encounter, has a calm and clear and seemingly plausible message that should thrill and delight you. I know. I know; 'if its too good to be true it probably isn't.' Many will conclude just that. That's o k, the doctor has said he knows it will be a very long time before the full glory of his experiences and insights become widely accepted. But he states that building these bridges of investigation and understanding is now his life's work. That is good fortune for his reader and indeed, all of humanity. I have long been convinced that consciousness is the true root and ground of our being. Seldom can people see it. Does a fish know it is wet? I doubt it.
If you Google Dr. Eben Alexander III you find that he has credentials pages long as a respected neurosurgeon and medical academic. He, like many of us technically trained folks, found it hard to truly believe religious concepts like prayer to a God, spiritual entities, and life after death. However, also like some of us, life dealt him a blow which resulted in a life changing spiritual experience. I read this book eagerly searching for similarities with my own encounter years ago, which turned me from a confirmed agnostic to a serious believer. Dr. Alexander's experience was much more severe and extensive than my own, but had enough similarities that I have probably have less trouble than some in believing that his story is true. The initiator of his encounter was a severe case of bacterial meningitis, an often fatal disease which damaged the outer cortex of his brain, putting him in a coma for seven days. His body became unresponsive, requiring a ventilator to keep it alive, but according to his later account, his consciousness or spirit remained active, and was taken out of the body through what the religious would call the heavenly realm. The journey seemed to include three levels that he later named as follows: 1.The underworld, a transparent mud-like space through which he rose until he encountered: 2. the Gateway, an entry to a land that looked like a more beautiful version of the World. He sailed above this land accompanied by a beautiful young woman (later found to be a deceased sister whom he had never met), finally approaching 3. The Core, "an immense void, infinite in size, pitch black but also brimming over with light" (I quote this because it did not make sense to me - apparently our linear brains cannot comprehend something being two things at once). In this place he was accompanied by an "orb" which interpreted the messages to his consciousness from the Creator, who seemed to completely surround this space. He felt as though he were in a "giant cosmic womb". He learned many things there. Some he could not explain in human language, such as the meaning of science's newly discovered "dark energy" and "dark mass". Three important messages he could explain were received shortly after he arrived: 1. "You are loved and cherished." 2. "You have nothing to fear." 3."There is nothing you can do wrong." He was told there are many universes. Evil is present in small amounts in all of them to allow the possibility of making the free will choices necessary for progression of the species, but love is overwhelmingly dominant. From the higher worlds one could access the lesser worlds at any time or place. To me, this all sounded like a combination of religious beliefs and science speculation. Yet, it did seem possible. Dr. Alexander suddenly woke up from his coma and after a long convalescence, regained his full mental
facilities and began to write down his experiences. As a brain specialist and scientist he realized as much as anyone how farfetched it all sounded. He subsequently reviewed the physiology carefully, investigating nine possible physical explanations for the phenomenon he experienced. All had to be rejected, leaving his only conclusion that a person's consciousness exists outside the body in the heavenly realms and resides only temporarily in the body during its short period on earth. Dr. Alexander believes that this happened to him for a reason and that he is called to bring his experience to the attention of his fellow humans. Crazy as my summary might sound; this is not a crazy person. His book is well written, fascinating to read, and it certainly expanded my thinking about that part of life which is death. One final comment: I doubt if "Proof of Heaven" was Dr. Alexander's original title; it looks more like a publisher's idea. As a scientist, Dr. Alexander knows that this book is not a proof of heaven, it is only one more piece of evidence that life may be more than just a body.
