Creator: Atwater, P. M. H.

Guest Editorial: Beginnings and Endings

Guest Editorial: Beginnings and Endings

Date: Autumn 2004
Creator: Atwater, P. M. H.
Description: Article asserting that the field of near-death studies needs to embrace other models and groups of professionals if it hopes to understand the near-death phenomenon. According to the author, no one can validate a near-death experience (NDE) except the experiencer; it is the aftereffects that impart real meaning to the experience and give it greater impact, and the "classical NDE model" that guides most near-death research can be limiting and misleading.

Near-Death Experiences with Hallucinatory Features

Near-Death Experiences with Hallucinatory Features

Date: Autumn 2007
Creator: Augustine, Keith
Description: Article surveying near-death experiences (NDEs) incorporating out-of-body discrepancies, bodily sensations, encounters with living persons and fictional characters, random or insignificant memories, returns from a point of no return, hallucinatory imagery, and unfulfilled predictions. Though attempts to accommodate hallucinatory NDEs within a survivalist framework are possible, they signal a failure to take the empirical evidence against a survivalist interpretation of NDEs seriously.

Date: Autumn 2007
Creator: Augustine, Keith
Description: Article purporting that near-death experience (NDE) reports are sometimes open to multiple interpretations, that different kinds of NDEs should be distinguished according to their diverse physiological mechanisms, and that transformations following NDEs but not other hallucinatory experiences require special explanation if NDEs are hallucinations.

Guest Editorial: The Significance of Light in the Near-Death Experience

Guest Editorial: The Significance of Light in the Near-Death Experience

Date: Summer 2005
Creator: Baumann, T. Lee
Description: Abstract: Light has long been recognized a s a principal characteristic of the near-death experience (NDE). However, its significance has been widely debated. This paper details the significance of light in the NDE, and it further suggests that science supports the contention that the light of the NDE represents the presence of a loving and concerned Creator. I cite well-established and celebrated physics experiments to support the argument that light exhibits supernatural - even conscious qualities. The relationship of light to the NDE, quantum physics, and descriptions of God throughout the world's literature serve to illuminate the argument that God and the light may well be one and the same

A Near-Death Experience Followed by the Visitation of an "Angel-Like" Being

A Near-Death Experience Followed by the Visitation of an "Angel-Like" Being

Date: Winter 2000
Creator: Bonenfant, Richard J.
Description: Abstract: I describe a near-death experience (NDE) followed by a religious experience 15 years later in which the subject was visited by the same "angel-like" figure that she saw in the NDE. I describe details of the NDE and of the subsequent visitation; note transformational changes in behavior and associated aftereffects; examine childhood experiences possibly related to the NDE; review the presence of angels in Biblical and mystical literature and in contemporary media; and suggest a possible relationship between latent paranormal abilities and the occurrence of a variety of exceptional experiences.

The Induction of After-Death Communications Utilizing Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing: A New Discovery

The Induction of After-Death Communications Utilizing Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing: A New Discovery

Date: Spring 2000
Creator: Botkin, Allan L.
Description: Article describing a new induction technique that produces after-death communications (ADCs) in a more reliable, rapid, and efficient manner. ADCs induced by this new technique provide a more elaborated experience that often fosters complete resolution of grief. These induced ADCs also appear to be much more like near-death experiences (NDEs) than do spontaneous ADCs, which suggests that NDEs and ADCs may be essentially the same phenomenon.
