Near-Death and Out-of-Body Experiences in a Melanesian Society

Near-Death and Out-of-Body Experiences in a Melanesian Society

Date: December 1983
Creator: Counts, Dorothy Ayers
Description: Abstract: "The texts of three near-death experiences, one vision, and one dream by Melanesian villagers are presented and analyzed with regard to their cultural context. Comparison of these experiences with those reported from North America and India suggests that while they have common features (such as the appearance of apparitions, and visions of paradise), their interpretation is structured by cultural expectations."

Otherworld Personal Future Revelations in Near-Death Experiences

Otherworld Personal Future Revelations in Near-Death Experiences

Date: Spring 1993
Creator: Lundahl, Craig R.
Description: Article describing a new kind of precognitive vision in the near-death experience (NDE): the otherworld personal future revelation (OPFR). Kenneth Ring previously described two kinds: the personal flashforward and the prophetic vision. The OPFR resembles the personal flashforward in that it previews the experiencer's personal future, but differs from the personal flashforward in that it is delivered to the experiencer by another personage in the otherworld rather than appearing in the visual imagery of a life review.
