With those "anomalies" I basically refer to non-veridical (wrong) perceptions during the out-of-body-phase and the encounter of people who are still alive and normally conscious or those like Elvis Presley or Santa Claus in a small number of NDEs. I am generally convinced that NDEs are "real" experiences, as opposed to hallucinations, but I am undecided what to make of those experiences that do not fit. Keith A. (I do not agree with his conclusions) did a good job in presenting examples of the cases I am talking about. If it is assumed that the "afterlife realm" or at least the initial experience or transitory phase, is purely subjective and reflect the individual´s state of (sub)consciousness then we need to assume that the dead friends and relatives that normally appear are no more real than still living people (and Santa Claus) that are met? For it seems inconsequent to assume only those encounters are real that "fit". And why is the content of some OBEs clearly hallucinatory while others seem to be truely genuine? I would like to hear other peoples´opinion about that. Thank you!
