Dr. Melvin Morse has researched near death experiences in children and adults for over 15 years. His interest evolved from his experiences working in Critical Care Medicine at Seattle Children's Hospital. Dr. Morse graduated from George Washington University School of Medicine, interned in Pediatrics at the University of California at San Francisco, and then completed a residency in Pediatrics at Seattle Children's Hospital.
He is also a Clinical Associate Professor of Pediatrics at University of Washington. His research has been featured in documentaries in several countries, and he has appeared on numerous television and radio shows. In addition, he has authored several books on the subject of near death experiences.
Pediatrician and neuroscientist Dr. Melvin Morse spoke about remote viewing, children's near-death experiences (NDEs), as well as consciousness research and mind-body healing. Remote viewing and near-death experiences share certain aspects, he noted. First hour guest, Richard C. Hoagland reacted to a speech on disaster preparedness made by NASA's director Charles Bolden. His comment about NASA being a Federal agency dealing with humans on & off planet might have been a veiled reference to a secret space program, Hoagland suggested. ... More »Host: George Noory

Pediatrician and neuroscientist, Dr. Melvin Morse, shared his insights from years of working with both adults and children who have had near-death experiences (NDEs). These experiences are not hallucinations and exist in real time, he said, citing the research that James Whinnery did with fighter pilots who reported spontaneous NDEs when subjected to extreme gravitational forces. Further, Morse contends that 20% of the brain (the right temporal lobe)is dedicated to processing "non-local" phenomena such as NDEs, and this offers a neurological explanation of "seeing God."Children who have NDEs have less "cultural overlay," and tend to recount their experience without using religious terminology. "I saw the sun and it had a happy face for me," Morse quoted one 3-year-old's description of his near-death experience. The common denominator in almost all NDEs was being "bathed in an energetic pattern of love," which leads Morse to conclude that we have nothing to fear from death. In fac ... More »Host: George Noory
