The Near-Death Experience: An Integration of Cultural, Spiritual, and Physical Perspectives

Article exploring two conflicting perspectives: that the near-death experience (NDE) is a glimpse into an after-death state and that it is the result of a dying brain, as well as a third perspective that NDEs are culturally determined. The author proposes an integrated model in which all three perspectives are viewed with equal weight.

Claims of Near-Death Experiences, Gestalt Resistance Processes, and Measures of Optimal Functioning

Abstract: The present study investigated the relationship between claims of near-death experiences (NDEs) and measures of self-actualization. Gestalt resistance processes transfluence, mystical experiences, and claims of peak life experiences in a sample of 155 individuals. As hypothesized, I found significant positive correlations between the claims of NDEs and transfluence and mystical experiences. I found no significant correlations between claims of NDEs and the seven Gestalt resistances, suggesting that NDErs are neither more nor less resistant than nonNDErs. I also found no significant relationship between claims of NDEs and self-actualization or claims of peak life experiences.
