Abstract: Light has long been recognized a s a principal characteristic of the near-death experience (NDE). However, its significance has been widely debated. This paper details the significance of light in the NDE, and it further suggests that science supports the contention that the light of the NDE represents the presence of a loving and concerned Creator. I cite well-established and celebrated physics experiments to support the argument that light exhibits supernatural - even conscious qualities. The relationship of light to the NDE, quantum physics, and descriptions of God throughout the world's literature serve to illuminate the argument that God and the light may well be one and the same
Italian psychical researcher Ernesto Bozzano was a well-known student of parapsychological phenomena and a strong defender of the concept of survival of bodily death. This paper includes an excerpt of what Bozzano referred to as the phenomena of bilocation.
