A Comparison of UFO and Near-Death Experiences as Vehicles for the Evolution of Human Consciousness

A Comparison of UFO and Near-Death Experiences as Vehicles for the Evolution of Human Consciousness

Date: Summer 1988
Creator: Davis, Lorraine
Description: Abstract: This study compares unidentified flying object experiencers (UFOErs) with near-death experiencers (NDErs) in regard to changes in attitudes toward self, others, and life in general, toward religious or spiritual orientation, and toward psychic abilities and beliefs. Kenneth Ring's questionnaires administered to NDErs (1984) were given in this study to 93 persons whose UFOE included either a light experience, and object experience, or a "close encounter." The author concludes that the UFOE, like the NDE, provides impetus toward spiritual growth, but neither as consistently nor as strongly.

Rationale and Considerations for Proposed Near-Death Research in the Hospital Setting

Rationale and Considerations for Proposed Near-Death Research in the Hospital Setting

Date: Autumn 1988
Creator: Holden, Janice Miner
Description: Abstract: Further research into the question of veridical perception during the "naturalistic" near-death out-of-body experience (nND OBE), that phase of the near-death experience in which the experiencer seems to be perceiving a normal earthly realm, would be of value to NDErs, their caregivers, and humanity in general. I propose a research procedure that targets visual perception during nND OBEs that occur in the hospital setting. I discuss unresolved issues in the design and implementation of such a procedure, and identify further areas of research.

Thanatoperience

Thanatoperience

Date: Autumn 1988
Creator: Tien, Stephen Slade
Description: Abstract: Near-death experiences (NDEs) can be seen as special cases of psychological transition. They often involve a deep transformation in the sense of self. I examine the NDE as such, according to my phase theory of transition, and I analyze an NDE with the help of that theory. I conclude that the study of NDEs may provide insight into the general psychology of transition.

Ego, Moral, and Faith Development in Near-Death Experiencers: Three Case Studies

Ego, Moral, and Faith Development in Near-Death Experiencers: Three Case Studies

Date: Winter 1988
Creator: Newsome, Rosalie D.
Description: Study examining relationships between three near-death experiencers' (NDErs) levels of moral, ego, and faith development, as measured by standardized instruments, and extensive qualitative data describing their NDEs and personal attributes. The results suggest that currently available instruments, designed to measure the lower self, may not reflect the awakening to a transpersonal plane of functioning that follows an NDE.

Community Attitudes Toward Near-Death Experiences: An Australian Study

Community Attitudes Toward Near-Death Experiences: An Australian Study

Date: Spring 1989
Creator: Kellehear, Allan & Heaven, Patrick
Description: Abstract: In an Australian survey of community attitudes toward near-death experiences (NDEs), 173 respondents were asked to read a hypothetical description of an NDE and to select from a range of explanations that might approximate their own. Fifty-seven percent of the respondents believed the NDE was evidence of life after death, while less than 2 percent believed the NDE was a sign of mental illness. Women, younger persons, and those who professed a belief in life after death were more likely to react positively to the NDE described.

Unexpected Findings in a Study of Visual Perception During the Naturalistic Near-Death Out-of-Body Experience

Date: Spring 1989
Creator: Holden, Janice Miner
Description: Study of visual perception during the naturalistic near-death out-of-body experience (nND OBE), that aspect of the NDE in which the experiencer seems to view normal physical surroundings from a vantage point outside the physical body, which yielded some unexpected findings that contradicted or augmented previous research. Each of these findings is discussed relative to previous research and analyzed in light of the limitations of the current study.
