Last Show Recap

Near Death Experiencers

Melvin Dummar says a grand conspiracy has denied him his portion of billionaire Howard Hughes' vast estate. Many consider Dummar to be a fraud but an in-depth investigation by Gary Magnesen has apparently shown Dummar to be a good samaritan who saved Hughes from certain death. Both joined George Knapp to discuss why Hughes was in the desert, as well as those who schemed to deny Dummar and several institutions of their rightful share of the Hughes estate. In the first hour, veteran music journalist Joel Selvin talked about the notorious Rolling Stones Altamont concert of 1969, considered by many to be rock’s darkest day.

Near Death Experiencers

Show Archive
Date: Monday - December 17, 2007
Host: George Noory
Guests: P. M. H. Atwater, Jim Berkland

Near-Death Experience researcher for over 30 years, P.M.H. Atwater shared her explanation for NDEs, and discussed case studies and personal experiences. She reported that as many as 4 to 5% of the population may undergo an NDE-- a consciousness apart from the body, that occurs after a person is clinically dead for a period of time. According to her research, experiencers have told her "always there's life," indicating that the notion of a before and afterlife is misleading.

Atwater has studied NDEs of children, and interestingly, she noted that many kids jump in intelligence after such experiences, sometimes scoring genius levels on IQ tests. She spoke of her own NDEs-- three separate episodes. In the first occurrence which took place in 1977, she said she could see people's thoughts in the air as a definite substance. In a later NDE, she described traveling to a realm of "incredible brightness" and witnessing creation.

Negative or dark NDEs are not uncommon, with reports including empty voids, severe storms, spinning vortexes and torture chambers. Atwood has concluded that the Other Side has a variety of open-ended layers, some dense and dark, others light and friendly. Where a person ends up in an NDE could reflect their frequency of vibration, and how they resonate, she said.

Quake Update

First hour guest, geologist Jim Berkland reacted to a report that Israel could be due for a major earthquake, calling the prediction overly vague. He also discussed animal and human sensitivities that have served as quake warnings.
