Last Show Recap

NDE Cases & Research

In the first half, Dave Schrader (email) welcomed veteran police detective Robert Snow, who during a hypnotic regression experienced a vivid awareness of being alive in three separate historical scenes. Remaining skeptical, he began to investigate with the intention of disproving reincarnation. However, what he discovered was the opposite—solid evidence that he lived a former life as Carroll Beckwith, a 19th-century American artist.

In the second half, former President of the Scottish Society for Psychical Research, Tricia Robertson, shared stories from her extensive casebook that deal with a wide range of phenomena that provide evidence for survival after death.

NDE Cases & Research

Date: Thursday - March 8, 2007
Host: George Noory
Guests: Jeffrey Long

Dr. Jeffrey Long, a leading researcher into near-death experiences (NDEs), shared new findings and reports on the phenomenon. He also reacted to Prof. Kevin Nelson's recent study (see below) which connected NDEs to out-of-body experiences (OBEs) and sleep paralysis. While Long was pleased that research into this area was being conducted, he was critical of the study's conclusions. He felt their surveys didn't retrieve enough details from respondents, and that more information could have highlighted the differences between these experiences.

There is a startling similarity across countries and cultures of what people report during NDEs, which can include being greeted by deceased relatives and friends, traveling through a tunnel, and undergoing a life review. Even NDErs who have been blind from birth report seeing similar things, he said.

About 5% of NDEs involve hellish encounters, Long noted. In a few cases he's collected, people have reported interactions with beings on other planets. He shared the report of Roger C. who described speaking telepathically, and conveying images to members of an advanced civilization on a distant planet. The beings, dressed in strange uniforms that molded to their skin, expressed surprise when he told them that humans eat foods that had been alive. "We knew there were primitive civilizations but not as bad as that!," they commented.
