and researcher Rene Jorgensen appeared on the TV show Call the Doctor along
with Dr. Jeffrey Long and David Benneth to discuss the scientific evidence for
near-death experiences, research and insights from the experience. Jorgensen
also shared his research from his book "The Light Behind God," which
investigates the parallels to religion.
Study of Near Death Experiences finds Evidence for God
of Near Death Experiences reveals that people experience `God` beyond death. A major
result from Rene Jorgensen's new study of near death experiences revealed in
his book The Light Behind God shows
that people overwhelmingly agree to call the core of their experience - an
experience of `God.`
asked: “What would you describe the core or essence of your experience as”, the
study found that 53 percent checked the box with “pure being,” and 60 percent
said yes to “essence of existence.” Moving further into trying to put a name on
this core or essence the consensus became higher with 73 percent agreeing to
call it “the Light,” and a majority of 80 percent calling it “God.”
Scientific Study of Near Death Experiences in Survivors of Cardiac Arrest
The results of the first major prospective study of
near-death experiences, conducted over a 13-year-long period and set up in ten
different hospitals in the Netherlands, was published in the international
medical journal The Lancet, vol. 358, issue 9298.
This scientific study included 344 cardiac patients who were
successfully resuscitated after suffering cardiac arrest and compared
demographic, pharmacological, and psychological data between patients who
reported NDEs and patients who did not after successful resuscitation.
New Study of Near Death Experiences launched to shed light on mind-body problem
The AWARE (AWAreness during Resuscitation) study was
announced at the UN Symposium Beyond the Mind-Body Problem: New Paradigms in
the Science of Consciousness, on September 11, 2008. The symposium at the
United Nations featured some of the leading NDE researchers and other experts
in the field of near death experiences and mind-body science.
The AWARE study is the first NDE research study launched by
the Human Consciousness Project, which is led by Dr. Sam Parnia, an expert in
consciousness during clinical death.
