    New study on NDE features

    I thought it was interesting and something well worth reading: http://journal.frontiersin.org.sci-hub.bz/article/10.3389/fnhum.2017.00311/full Thoughts?

    Next time you're arguing against a skeptic, remember this is what your arguing against

    My bad, thank you for correcting me! By the way, I just looked the book up on Amazon, and it looks intriguing. For those of you who have read it, what are your thoughts about it? Has it been discussed on this forum already?

    Next time you're arguing against a skeptic, remember this is what your arguing against

    Soooo.... I was bored, and wrote up a quick refutation, but then I realized that YouTube won't allow such comment lengths so I figured I'd post it here instead. In the comment section, the creator of the video states: Is this a joke? Let's list all the errors in the video, from beginning to...

    Why is "meaning" good?

    I'm not dogmatically against that idea and I used to lean that way myself, at least when I first started researching the implications of the NDE. But I would need a reason for it. Given eternity, I can't imagine a single reason to be in a hurry regarding anything, not even leveling up this love...

    Why is "meaning" good?

    Well yes, but there isn't some kind of reward for being loving in the afterlife outside of your own higher self's appreciation for it. Or let's put it this way instead: There is no rush to be loving. We are living in eternity, and whatever loving vibration we don't ascend to in this lifetime...

    Why is "meaning" good?

    First of all, I just want to say that I sympathize with your post, Mediochre. Many proponents on this forum (or spiritual people in general) are indeed guilty of thinking that the afterlife hypothesis implies that there's meaning in the moral restriction kind of way. In other words, here's how...

    Death Penalty and the Afterlife

    Well, from a rational perspective it absolutely should. We kill people because we want to punish them, and since we view death as something undesirable. But the NDE evidence paints an entirely different picture of death altogether. I wouldn't even call it the death penalty, but rather the death...

    A remarkable FDE from NDERF.org

    Very interesting FDE. It reminds me greatly of parts of Christian Andréasons extremely deep NDE, where he witnessed the following: *************** The Great Wheel As I looked downward from where I was, I saw a phenomenal structure I can only describe as being a Great Cosmic Wheel. This...

    Overlap of NDE features with drug induced states

    Yes but you chose this life while you were still in paradise - when you were infinitely happy, loved, intelligent, aware, rich, healthy, gorgeous, had millions of beloved friends and family around you, could do everything you ever wanted, etc. Your higher self still found this life interesting -...

    Overlap of NDE features with drug induced states

    First of all, some people have had NDEs and have had these drug induced experiences. Here is how they compare them: "I would like to mention something else that isn't talked about much and that's hallucinogens. Hoping to recreate the experience, I've tried several drugs, including LSD...

    Is there such a thing as soul death?

    No. All of eternity is our playground, and we can do whatever we want forever. Want to be a dark lord like Sauron or Ba'alzamon for thousands of years at a time for trillions upon trillions of incarnations? Go for it! There is nothing we can ever do to jeopardize our spot in eternity, and...

    ***Skeptiko NDE Documentaries Thread*** - and other related

    I really found the talk she goes on about from roughly 25 minutes in towards the end of this MY NDE PART 2 * THE GUARDIAN ANGEL * video to be deeply fascinating for some reason. Evidently, supermodels like Sean O'Pry or Lucky Blue Smith are total jokes compared to the handsomeness and cuteness...

    ***Skeptiko NDE Documentaries Thread*** - and other related

    Well, I've found a very interesting NDEr recently:

    Man has NDE, told not his time, then dies for real 2 minutes later

    Thanks! I scanned their site, and I still couldn't find the actual video though :/

    Man has NDE, told not his time, then dies for real 2 minutes later

    Interesting video, thank you. At 3:33 in the video, you can see a quick glance of Sam Parnia giving a TEDx talk called "Demystifying Death". I've tried googling it but I can't find this talk online anywhere. Anyone else has a clue where to find it? I'd very much like to see it.

    Drawing conclusions from NDEs: it's all good or striving for perfection?

    Thanks! I love interviews with Nanci, and it's great to h ear a new fresh one. I have a lovely hour in front of me :)

    Drawing conclusions from NDEs: it's all good or striving for perfection?

    I agree with you that to the extent that cancer and other physical suffering brings about anxieties and other mental suffering (like depression) it is indeed horrible, but that just reinforces the point I was making rather than disproving it. Thanks a lot! <3

    Drawing conclusions from NDEs: it's all good or striving for perfection?

    I don't agree with what she's saying here 100%, since it clashes with what many other NDErs and in particular the one I consider the deepest NDEr ever (you know who I'm talking about :D ) has to say on the issue, that part of the purpose of life is to grow in our ability to love and joyously...
