Community Attitudes Toward Near-Death Experiences: A Chinese Study

Community Attitudes Toward Near-Death Experiences: A Chinese Study

Date: Spring 1990
Creator: Kellehear, Allan; Heaven, Patrick & Gao, Jia
Description: Abstract: In a survey of Chinese attitudes toward near-death experiences (NDEs), 197 respondents were read a hypothetical description of an NDE and asked to choose from a range of explanations and social reactions that might approximate their own. Fifty-eight percent of respondents believed that NDEs were probably hallucinations or dreams. Less than nine percent believed the NDE was evidence of life after death. Rural and younger persons were more likely to react positively to NDErs. The results are discussed with reference to an earlier Australian study by Kellehear and Heaven (1989).

Guest Editorial: The Near-Death Experience: An Ancient Truth, a Modern Mystery

Guest Editorial: The Near-Death Experience: An Ancient Truth, a Modern Mystery

Date: Spring 1990
Creator: Fenske, Elizabeth W.
Description: Article discussing the near-death experience (NDE) as an experience of wholeness, an adventure in consciousness, and a metaphoric encounter with light. It links theoretical physics with the occult, the Primordial Tradition, and various religious belief systems. Where science sees mystery, religion sees metaphoric truth; the NDE as spiritual quest and physical encounter beckons to both disciplines for explanation.

Near-Death Encounters with and without Near-Death Experiences: Comparative NDE Scale Profiles

Near-Death Encounters with and without Near-Death Experiences: Comparative NDE Scale Profiles

Date: Spring 1990
Creator: Greyson, Bruce
Description: Abstract: In a retrospective study contrasting the near-death encounters of 183 persons who reported near-death experiences and 63 persons who reported no near-death experience, the two groups did not differ in age, gender, or time elapsed since the near-death encounter. Near-death experiencers reported all 16 items of the NDE Scale significantly more often than did nonexperiencers.

The Near-Death Experience and the Taoism of Chuang Tzu

The Near-Death Experience and the Taoism of Chuang Tzu

Date: Spring 1990
Creator: Hermann, E. J.
Description: Article comparing excerpts from Chuang Tzu's writings and the descriptions of near-death experiencers (NDErs). Similarities between the beliefs of NDErs and those of Taoist patriarch Chuang Tzu suggest that NDErs have experienced a kind of awakening that leads them to reject conventional attitudes toward life and death.

Changes in Religious Beliefs, Attitudes, and Practices Following Near-Death Experiences: An Australian Study

Changes in Religious Beliefs, Attitudes, and Practices Following Near-Death Experiences: An Australian Study

Date: Autumn 1990
Creator: Sutherland, Cherie
Description: Abstract: This study examined changes in religious beliefs, attitudes, and practices in the lives of 50 near-death experiencers. I attempted to clarify whether these changes were to greater religiousness or to a deeper spirituality. I found that before the near-death experience (NDE), my respondents were no more religious or spiritually inclined than the general Australian population. Following the NDE there was a statistically significant shift towards spirituality on most items investigated.

Extrasensory Perception, Near-Death Experiences, and the Limits of Scientific Knowledge

Extrasensory Perception, Near-Death Experiences, and the Limits of Scientific Knowledge

Date: Autumn 1990
Creator: Becker, Carl B.
Description: Article discussing the following issue: If mental state can influence the external world, or if alternate dimensions of reality are accessible only in certain mental states, then important aspects of the universe are unknowable with current scientific tools. Near-death studies suggest that both those conditions may occur. Thus the exploration of NDE-like phenomena requires a radically new scientific paradigm.

Guest Editorial: Thomas Kuhn Revisited: Near Death Studies and Paradigm Shifts

Guest Editorial: Thomas Kuhn Revisited: Near Death Studies and Paradigm Shifts

Date: Autumn 1990
Creator: Serdahely, William J.
Description: Article purporting that near-death studies can be viewed within a theoretical framework of "paradigms" and "paradigm shifts" as explicated by Thomas Kuhn. Assuming the validity of Kuhn's model, it hypothesizes that the paradigm of today's "normal science" is shifting to a new paradigm to accommodate data from near-death studies.

Near-Death Experiences and the Measurement of Blood Gases

Near-Death Experiences and the Measurement of Blood Gases

Date: Autumn 1990
Creator: Gliksman, Michael D. & Kellehear, Allan
Description: Abstract: Although cerebral anoxia is not thought to be responsible for triggering near-death experiences (NDEs), the issue is not so clear in the case of hypercapnia. Detection of normal blood gases in Michael Sabom's (1982) case study seems to be the major reply to suggest that hypercapnia may have a causal role in NDEs. We argue, however, that routine arterial measures of blood gases are not a reliable indicator of cerebral levels.

Pediatric Near-Death Experiences

Date: Autumn 1990
Creator: Serdahely, William J.
Description: Article reviewing one previously reported and three new pediatric near-death experiences (NDEs), in which the experiencers were interviewed as children, and which suggests that the childhood core NDE as described by Melvin Morse and colleagues may be expanded to include feeling pain-free, seeing a light at the tunnel's end, entering the light, and time alteration.

Five Minutes After Death: A Study of Beliefs and Expectations

Five Minutes After Death: A Study of Beliefs and Expectations

Date: Winter 1990
Creator: Kellehear, Allan &
Description: Abstract: This paper examines the beliefs and expectations that a sample of 508 people hold about the first five minutes after death. A substantial minority believed that they will experience the main elements of the near-death experience (NDE). In general these elements were cited more frequently than were Biblical images. Six percent of the sample said that postmortem survival for them will be a negative and disturbing experience. We discuss these results in terms of their methodological implications for other survey work and their theoretical contribution toward our understanding of negative NDEs.

The Near-Death Experience of a Nonverbal Person with Congenital Quadriplegia

The Near-Death Experience of a Nonverbal Person with Congenital Quadriplegia

Date: Winter 1990
Creator: Serdahely, William J. & Walker, Barbara A.
Description: Abstract: This article describes the near-death experience (NDE) a 39-year-old man born with severe spastic quadriplegia had when he was two and one-half years old. Nonverbal because of cerebral palsy, the man was able to communicate about his experience after he heard a therapist talking to another person about NDEs. The man experienced a fairly typical NDE and has had seven subsequent out-of-body experiences, the latter hypothesized as temporary relief from his physical pain resulting from muscular spasticity.
