The Darkness of God: An Account of Lasting Mystical Consciousness Resulting from an NDE

The Darkness of God: An Account of Lasting Mystical Consciousness Resulting from an NDE

Date: 1986~
Creator: Wren-Lewis, John
Description: Article describing the author's near-death experience (NDE) in 1983 as a result of poisoning. Almost every feature of the experience has been antithetical to the author's prior background, both in childhood and in adult life, thereby providing evidence against reductionist explanations of NDE. An account is given of how the new consciousness is affected by various life-circumstances, and of its practical impact on the quality of living.

Guest Editorial: Avoiding the Columbus Confusion: An Ockhamish View of Near-Death Research

Date: Winter 1992
Creator: Wren-Lewis, John
Description: Article exploring the theory that contemporary belief that near-death experiences (NDEs) are glimpses of an afterlife may prevent us from realizing their more profound nature. Belief in an afterlife has not historically brought humanity a high quality of life, but NDEs seem reliably to do so, and may offer important clues about why the expanded vitality, the "eternity-consciousness," of the mystics is commonly blocked.
