Heaven exists, says a man of science

Heaven exists and apparently they have women up there. At least that's what doctor Eben Alexander says, a Harvard neurosurgeon who stayed in coma for a week, due to some meningitis complications. The guy who claims to be a non religious person and declares himself a man of science, confessed a most astonishing near death experience during his coma period.
 He remembers floating above the clouds along with other transparent beings that left long streamer lines behind them.. He was closely accompanied by a female creature, who communicated in an unknown language, and who was guiding him towards a dark infinite void, that he suspected to be the house of God. This story coming from a respected neurosurgeon is very spectacular, I dare say, but I wonder whether he managed to correctly identify the destination, considering the fact that it was dark and ...a void....I mean, only the flames are missing...

Although for some strange reason that I never managed to explain, I do believe in the "life after", in this case I would say our scientist might be the victim of a simple, ordinary process called dreaming :)

I wanted to read that book. Sounds like a book I would like. I had to smile at the thought of where he was..

Dear Petronela, I believe. I don't know if it will look the way this man describes it.
I don't picture it to look like that.
I picture it much different.
Blessings dearest. Catherine xoxo

I read some of an article about this guy, but I missed the part about the dark infinite void... that doesn't sound very good at all!

if there are no women in heaven or hell I ain't going to either... :)

Interesting post. I believe that each of us already is immortal, so Death is just a transition. Not sure about the dark void. That would scare me.

This article says that we may not be real and just a computer simulation.

It is a interesting thought.

Have a great week!

Hi Petronela,

Having nearly died in hospital, I recall the sounds of small children crying and the haunting sounds of birds as they landed on some water.

Anyway, my story is rather boring compared to his.

You take care.

It is indeed an interesting story but it is always difficult to believe someone who could have easily made everything up. There are plenty of people like that.
In any case I think we are so limited as humans and we cannot see the whole picture. I believe there is more to this life.

I fall very firmly into the don't know category. And when I do know, I will not be able to come back and tell everyone. A bit sad that bit.

Been too busy lately- have missed these saucy words! I have been told that a lack of oxygen to the brain creates these strange death experience visions- but I prefer the idea that death is the last great adventure, and life needs a bit of mystery.

Don't get me wrong, I am a strong believer and I have my faith and that's all anyone else needs to know about me and my religion. However, I'm not quite sure how I feel about this story and stories similar. But hey, if it triggered some spiritual awakening and bettered his own understanding of what he believes, then bless him.
I can't say if it's true or not and I'm not one to judge.

To answer the understated pretense here of whether or not there is an afterlife, I like to think there is. As Walter Scott says, death is not the last sleep, but the final awakening. Therefore, what we do not understand in this life shall be answered in the next. I rather like the thought of that.
We're not meant to know everything. If that were at the case, then that would defeat the purpose entirely this life, let alone the 'afterlife'.

Good topic though...very thought provoking.

*snickering* --> "I mean, only the flames are missing..."

I would like to believe these experiences really mean something. I reserve judgement. I believe if you believe in God you can't denounce ghosts, fairies, goblins and the like and vice verse. If one believes in heaven and hell sight unseen then how can they not believe in an afterlife... I am technically a Christian, but I consider myself spiritual instead of religious. An-t-way... Love the post; your writing is so engaging and informative.

I saw this guy speak on a Discovery show, he seemed creditable, but I don't think the dark would lead to anything bad, at least that is the way I feel. I hope all is well with you,

Mysterious vision, dream or real who can tell?

Loved that story since I heard it. Great take on it, wondering if he got the 'destination right.' Gave me a great smirk.
