The Theory of Essence. III: Neuroanatomical and Neurophysiological Aspects of Interactionism

Description: Article continuing the construction of a dualistic interactionist theory of the near-death experience (NDE), the theory of essence, which was begun in two previous articles. The present work represents an extension of the theory to the microscopic level of analysis, in order to specify in detail the mechanism of essence-brain interaction and to address some general and specific objections to interactionism and the theory of essence.

Near-Death Experiences and the Theory of the Extraneuronal Hyperspace

Description: Abstract: It is possible and desirable to supplement the traditional neurological and metaphysical explanatory models of the near-death experience (NDE) with yet a third type of explanatory model that links the neurological and the metaphysical. I set forth the rudiments of this model, the Theory of the Extraneuronal Hyperspace, with six propositions. I then use this theory to explain three of the pressing issues within NDE scholarship: the veridicality, precognition and "fear-death experience" phenomena.
