On the Mind/Body Problem: The Theory of Essence

On the Mind/Body Problem: The Theory of Essence

Date: Autumn 1992
Creator: Arnette, J. Kenneth
Description: Article exploring the classical mind/body problem using instances of the near-death experience (NDE) as experimental data. Comparison of the details of the NDE with predictions from theoretical cosmology shows strong similarities between the two and further strengthens the case for dualism. A theory of human nature is proposed that incorporates these similarities.

Over My Dead Body There Is an Ideal Utopia: Comments on Kellehear's Paper

Over My Dead Body There Is an Ideal Utopia: Comments on Kellehear's Paper

Date: Winter 1991
Creator: Becker, Carl B.
Description: Article examining the logical implications and philosophical possibilities of a utopian realm, and coming to three conclusions. First, the realms described by near-death experiencers (NDErs), if taken at face value, are far from utopian. Second, any truly utopian postmortem society is so far removed from our present world as to be morally irrelevant to our own. And third, only an ideational postmortem utopia, of the sort exemplified by Pure Land Buddhist theology, can avoid both the non-utopian nature of NDErs' descriptions and the irrelevance of postmortem utopias.

Parallels Between Near-Death Experience Prophetic Visions and Prophecies from the Bible and Mormon Holy Writ

Parallels Between Near-Death Experience Prophetic Visions and Prophecies from the Bible and Mormon Holy Writ

Date: Spring 1999
Creator: Lundahl, Craig R.
Description: Article discussing a phenomenon identified by Kenneth Ring where some near-death experiencers (NDErs) were permitted to see a picture of the Earth's future as a "prophetic vision" (PV). A comparison of the events of NDE PVs of the Earth's future and prophecies from the Bible and the Mormons' "Doctrine and Covenants" shows nearly complete agreement.

The Paradox of Jonah: Response to "Solving the Riddle of Frightening Near-Death Experiences"

The Paradox of Jonah: Response to "Solving the Riddle of Frightening Near-Death Experiences"

Date: Autumn 1994
Creator: Bush, Nancy Evans
Description: Article contending that Kenneth Ring's arguments are the same that have been used by skeptics to question the validity of the radiant near-death experience (NDE); that as they have been found inadequate there, so they do not adequately address the meaning or value of the terrifying experience; and that experiences of the depths may be equally productive and as worthy of serious study as are experiences of radiance.
