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

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.

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

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.

Near-Death Studies and Modern Physics

Description: Article exposing some of the principal problem areas between near-death studies and modern physics, and suggesting a greater collaboration between the two fields. Specific illustrations are given where collaborative effort might be fruitful. The paper also suggests a broader perspective in performing the research, one that places greater emphasis on an otherworldly thrust in future research.

Religious Wars or Healthy Competition in the NDE Movement?

Description: Article pointing out some problems with Michael Sabom's recent work, and arguing that Kenneth Ring's statements that we might not now be headed toward "Omega" as he once thought may be premature.

Three Fictional Deaths Compared with the Near-Death Experience

Description: Study looking at three popular works of short fiction, by Leo Tolstoy, Ambrose Bierce, and Katherine Anne Porter, in which the main character dies at the end. There are similarities and differences between these deaths and recent near-death experience (NDE) accounts. The comparison helps define the modern sensibility about dying that is part of the cultural context for interest in NDEs.
