Pim van Lommel on Consciousness Beyond Life

Monday, January 24th, 2011

Renowned cardiologist Pim van Lommel, author of Consciousness Beyond Life: The Science of the Near-Death Experience , discusses his research into the near-death experience. In this extensive interview, he describes the brain as a “transceiver” which receives information from consciousness, states that everything originates from consciousness – which he describes as “fundamental” and “non-local” – and discusses the profound implications of his research for Western science.

Near Death Experiences During Cardiac Arrest – Dr. Sam Parnia

Friday, September 17th, 2010

A few days ago many read with interest our blog entry concerning the work of British scientist Dr. Sam Parnia (author of “What Happens When We Die“) on the scientific study of death. We’re following this up with the video of a recent lecture by Dr. Parnia on “Near Death Experiences During Cardiac Arrest”, which was given at the Anomalistic Psychology Research Unit (APRU), Goldsmiths, University of London, on 23 March 2010. in the lecture, Dr. Parnia makes the case that Western science needs to re-examine its views about the mind and the brain, and that perhaps “the mind is a separate, undiscovered entity to the brain”. We present the lecture here in connection with Lama Ole Nydahl’s forthcoming lecture in London on “Death and Rebirth“, as much of what Dr. Parnia discusses has commonalities with the Tibetan Buddhist teachings about the experience of mind during and after the death process. the lecture lasts over 50 minutes but is well worth watching in full.
