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.

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.
