I can highly recommend this important book that has the potential to break many scientific taboos. But we should also realize that the acceptance of new scientific ideas in general and ideas about the experience of enhanced consciousness independent of a normal functioning brain in particular requires us to have an open mind and to abandon dogma.
This is a compelling story of what may lie ahead for all of us in the life beyond this one.
We have nothing to fear. Plus, he is a neurosurgeon, an established scientist, who lived through a bona fide miracle — one that challenges everything he ever knew, personally or professionally.
His awareness of mission fits his profile, a scientist ready to challenge science. There have been others like him, but not with proof that can be independently verified to the degree that his can be.
He recognizes the threshold where he now stands, and has chosen higher consciousness research to help fulfill his goals. This is a very important book.
Proof of Heaven: A Neurosurgeon's Journey into the Afterlife
This book is a thunderbolt! The neighbor I had known as vivacious, even gregarious, was lifeless and passing away. In this amazing book, Eben recalls how he walked the valley of the shadow of death yet survived.
With vivid detail and description, he invites you to walk with him to that place none of us has experienced yet in our humanity we know we shall one day certainly travel.
Having survived a near death experience and brought his neurological expertise and background to it, we gain both the insight of the mystics in his poetic words and the reality of the physical world in his scientific explorations. More importantly, Eben transcends the particularity in which most of us live to arrive at a comprehensiveness we seek. From the uniqueness of his own experience, this present day mystic has sought illumination, and in finding a degree of it, a glimpse of the beyond, he calls all of us to a place of greater integrity and authenticity.
Read it for a foretaste of something beyond the veil, beyond our dreams, and beyond our wildest imaginations. Read it as Last Rites for your past understanding of a limited world and discover bridges to the eternal in our very midst. Alexander offers a montage of his experiences in the afterlife and the ordeal his friends and family endured, waiting and praying for seven days as he seemed to be all but surely slipping away under a prolonged coma brought on by E.
Coli meningitis. Many readers are taken by the seeming improbability of Alexander surviving what he did, and even more by his experience when his brain was apparently turned off.
A regular reader of topics in neurology and consciousness, I am open to the possibility of Near Death Experiences, or NDEs, provided they are buttressed with some evidence. After all, Alexander makes much of his credentials and accolades before he delves into his recollection of his NDE, repeatedly making bold claims about the creator and the afterlife.
One suspects that by taking this approach, he is trying to fool readers into thinking the claims advanced in his book are scientific—and he repeatedly asserts they are. But there is little scientific inquiry here.
Hell, there isn't even an insightful discussion of NDEs. Instead, what we get is an interesting story and a great deal of evangelizing—though one that would, in keeping with a would-be bestseller about the afterlife, bear the metaphysical shading to please virtually any religious or spiritual person.
He writes that his insights were immediate but not immaterial or abstract.
Proof of Heaven : A Neurosurgeon's Journey into the Afterlife
He did not pass through a dark tunnel or recognize deceased loved ones. In fact, he had no sense of self.
He describes it as being similar to the most primitive state of being--murky and dark and full of strange, pulse-like pounding.
From the premise that his awe-inspiring experience is scientific proof, he piles on a series of large claims about the real world. Never mind that this is not at all scientific.
Alexander might want to look up in an intro philosophy of science textbook.I, like the author, seem to have spent so much of my life in waning faith. However, he felt that while his consciousness was identified with all that is, he could never fully become one with Source.
The next morning, he was rushed to the hospital, where he spent seven days in a meningitis induced coma.
There have been others like him, but not with proof that can be independently verified to the degree that his can be. It needed to unfold piece by piece and revelation by revelation, just as it did in real life. They did not.
