NDEs in the News

Excellent interview with Eben Alexander on Skeptiko

Dr. Eben AlexanderAlex TsakirisAlex Tsakiris of Skeptiko.com interviews neurosurgeon Eben Alexander about the nature of the mind and brain based on Dr. Alexander's near-death experience.

Dr. Alexander states, "[Before my NDE] it was very clear in [neuroscience] that the brain gives you consciousness and everything else, and when the brain dies there goes consciousness, soul, mind—it’s all gone. And it was clear.

"Now, having been through my coma, I can tell you that’s exactly wrong and that in fact the mind and consciousness are independent of the brain. It’s very hard to explain that, certainly if you’re limiting yourself to that reductive materialist view." (emphasis added)
